Salmon & Dill Dog Food Topper

I think you all know by now that we own a very spoiled and finicky Siberian Husky named Cannoli.  Let me repharse, Cannoli, a spoiled and finicky Husky owns us.  I guess like most pet owners and animal lovers we tend to spoil our fur balls who bring so much joy to our lives. My husband recently asked me who I spoil more, the grandkids or the dog, LOL!  As if!  The question should be who does HE spoil more. I categorically deny spoiling anyone, people or pets!  After all it was under ...

Chicken N’ Gravy Dog Food Topper Recipe

I think everyone knows that we share our home with a very spoiled and finicky almost 2 year old Siberian Husky named Cannoli.  For the last few months we've been trying to put some weight on her.  This has proven to be a difficult task, not only is she finicky, she's very active too! We've tried everything to get her to eat her dog food, including switching brands from Merrick, to Blue Wilderness, and now to Solid Gold. All very good dog food, and all on the high end of the spectrum as far ...

Homemade Dog Food Topper

Do you have a finicky dog?  Do you have to mix canned dog food or toppers with dry?  Are you tired of buying expensive toppers or cans?  If you said yes to one or all of these questions read for my homemade dog food topper recipe! We have a 20 month old Siberian Husky named Cannoli.  For months now we've been trying to put some weight on her, the vet told us she's about 8 pounds under weight.  I've read that putting and keeping weight on a Siberian Husky of this age can be challe...

Homemade PB & Veggie Dog Biscuits For a Shiny Coat!

Last week I whipped up a batch of homemade PB & Veggie Dog Biscuits for my pooch Cannoli and her friends in Obedience Class.  Since class fell on Easter Sunday it was a good time to share some treats so I packed the biscuits in Easter packaging. This time I added Brewer's Yeast and Flax Seed Meal to the biscuits, both are said to promote healthy skin and shiny coats.  I used Peanut Butter mostly for taste, Cannoli loves her Peanut Butter, but it's also a good source of protein, heart ...

Sweet Potato Dog Chews

I was in Petco just before Christmas looking for treats for my Siberian Husky, she loves treats!  I was shocked at how expensive dog treats have gotten.  I found a small bag of "all natural" sweet potato treats priced at $12.99, my dog loves sweet potatoes, but I wasn't ready to fork over 13 bucks for a few pieces of dehydrated sweet potato when I could buy a whole bag of sweet potato for about $5.  I decided I could make my own dog chews so I got a bag of sweet potato from Walmart and ...

Cranberry Pupcicles

I know most of us have been busy with Thanksgiving preparations, but don't forget your furry friends!  They need some special treats too! My Siberian Husky, Cannoli, loves her treats and since we've been trying to put some weight on her I've been making her plenty.  Frozen treats are her favorites, and no wonder a Husky living in Hawaii loves anything cold! While I was shopping for holiday fixings I picked up some extra fresh cranberries.  I made them into Cannoli's favorite frozen ...

DIY Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats

A recent routine visit to the vet resulted in finding out that our year old Siberian Husky, Cannoli, is 2-3 pounds underweight.  I was surprised!  The vet assured me that it wasn't a big deal and that a daily dose of vitamins should make her pick up some weight; that and perhaps getting her to eat a little more dog food or even switching brands. I feed all my pets grain free dry Merrick pet food, I've been told it's very good.  I also make pets healthy homemade treats and give them safe ...

Frozen Dog Treats

I know the weather is cooling off in most places but for us in Hawaii it's still pretty hot, and it's also raining, a lot.  As a result of the rain our yard has gotten very muddy, and there's nothing our Siberian Husky likes more than to roll in the mud! In an effort to keep Cannoli hydrated and busy I made her these frozen dog treats, they combine the coconut water that's very good for keeping her hydrated with her favorite chicken jerky that keeps her busy and out of the mud for a ...

Frozen Coconut Water Dog Treats

I had made a variety of popsicles for my grandsons' visit this summer, they loved them but weren't able to finish them all.  Now that summer is over and my grandsons have gone home I'm left with some of those popsicles. It's still unusually hot here, I've been told that this summer has unseasonably hot even in Hawaii.  To keep my Siberian Husky, Cannoli, cool and happy this summer I've been making her frozen doggie treats.  So I looked at the left over popsicles and wondered if I could ...

DIY Doggie Icy Pops

It's shaping up to be a very hot summer.  To keep Cannoli, our Siberian Husky, cool and comfy this summer we've been making her frozen dog treats. They are so simple to make, they not only keep her cool, they keep her busy for almost an hour! For these treats I used apples and blueberries I had in the fridge and low sodium chicken broth I had in the pantry.  Really you can use your pooch's favorite fruits and veggies or whatever you have at home as long as they are dog friendly. ...
