Yes, it is what it is and it is a Dog's life. My mama bought me this chair earlier at a yard sale in fact she bought me 2 one is my in the house tv chair. This one sits outside on my humans fancy screened in porch. I have loved napping out here in the hot weather and it gives me a great view of those new guinea pig babies that play in their pen out of the porch in the nice weather too. We all get along just fine. I hope we can start posting a lot more as I have a new bed that my humans made and and a few new recipes I want to share. Getting old sucks but I am enjoying chilling and enjoying my humans medical retirement. Woof until later...
Yesterday, I turned 2 years old! As a present my human family brought me a new sister. She is a black lab that they rescued from a home that didn't want her. For the most part she is ok, but she is really young and I don't want to play with her all day! I like to lay around on the down blanket and watch soap operas. Oh well, I'm thinking mom needs to start a new blog about the dealings of Libby the Lab. She seems to always be into something...Well off to sniff some ground enjoy the day.
The weather here has been cool, I'm actually back to wearing t-shirts and at night I wish mom would put my flannel pjs on. But, with it being cool outside I'm hoping she gets the urge to bake for me and the boy ( who really wants an angel food cake). So, I thought I would share another treat recipe and hope she gets the hint since I know she has all the ingredients in the house. So here goes it..my treat recipe for all of you...
12-16 ounces raw liver 1 1/2 lb White flour 8 oz Quaker Oats 3 Bouillon cubes, meat or chicken flavored 1 c Water- approx. 2 Eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 350. Grease 3 cookie sheets. Chop the liver finely, or put briefly in a blender. Mix flour and oats, crumble in the bouillon cubes, add eggs and the chopped liver. Add enough water to make a firm but slightly sticky dough. Spread evenly on the cookie sheets, about 1/2" thick. Dip a small dog-cookie cutter in flour before cutting out each portion. Bake 1 hour. Can be kept for about 2 weeks. Store in refrigerator.
HAHAHA!!! I'm sneaking back on the computer because no one is using it and I wanted to tell you about the weirdo puppy! She is teething and it is too funny, she lays in the sun and eats freezer pops and then when they melt too quick she whines about it. It is enough to frazzle my nerves, but at least the weather is nice and we can play outside, if only she would play outside and not whine everytime mom moves 2 feet away.
The big excitement of my weekend was I got to get dressed and had my hair done to go to the bank. It was cool they ooohhhed and aaahhhed over me and I got to have a milk bone. Thankfully mom knows I hate them things and she just slipped it in her pocket.
Today the boy child has a baseball game and I don't think Im allowed to go there so I will be in charge of home security at that point.
Well have a good day my siesta in the sun time is here and Im off to relax.
Ok, so Im addicted to chips...if you know me then you know this so it is no big surprise...my favorite are Doritos Extra Spicy Nacho which my boy sneaks me when mom isn't paying attention to him because he gets in trouble for giving me spicy things...but Yummmmmy! Today I got to have cheddar and sour cream and they were yummy too but that isn't why Im taking a few minutes from my day of sunbathing in the yard to talk to you. Over the weekend my human mommy brought home the yummiest treats I have ever had. It was called Better than Ears and they were so good. Bella and I got the bacon ones but I hope next time she gets us the peanut butter ones (because Bellas doesn't like peanut butter). She got a coupon on the pack so Im sure she will get us more...
Other than that spring is here which means more time sitting outside enjoying the weather. It is finally in a stretch where it is not raining and we have been playing outside and Bella has been showing off how she can fetch and return things. Wonder if she will fetch and forget to return so I can go back to be an only dog child. Not that I'm not really loved.
Ok, back to my spot in the sun. Have a good day everyone. Aliza
Hello again, Today let's talk about current events. My life consists of nothing but sleeping and watching tv. Probably because I'm a dog. So, I have been listening to things while laying around...like mom working on making money using her computer. Seems like she is working hard and not making as much as you would think but something is better than nothing. The news has some crazy stories..like the mom who wasn't happy with the 6 kids she had she had to go ahead and have 8 more. The plane crash in Buffalo over night and was sad and some of the interviews made mommy cry. Sad what the families have to go thru now. Tomorrow I get to go to the groomers so I will have to have mommy post a pic when Im done. I look kinda scraggly today, but I will be beautiful for Valentines Day. Well now you know what I have been up too. I'm adding a recipe for you to make for your favorite dog for Valentines day. If you make it for them come back and tell me how your dog liked it. They are yummy. Tuna Fudge Training Dog Treats This is a wonderful training treat for dogs. It has the consistency of fudge so you can break off different sized pieces and the dogs can eat them quickly without a mess. It is also "smelly" so your dog can anticipate the treat! You must store it in the refrigerator or freezer.
25 min 5 min prep 1 pan 2 (6 ounce) cans tuna (do not drain) 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour 1 tablespoon garlic powder 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1/4 cup parmesan cheese Mix all ingredients with an electric mixer until well blended. Spread mixture into a greased 9x9 cake pan. Bake covered at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Store in refrigerator or freeze.
Have a Happy Friday and remember to wear red to today to support our miltary !!
So today mom wrote about being red for women so I thought I would give you a recipe I seen when she was looking for something healthy to make for dinner. It seems from listening to her that it is hard to find normal healthy food recipes. Something that everyone including my teenage boy will eat that isnt fancy or have weird have to run out and buy them ingredients. Anyway, I thought this sounded good and since I'm kinda crabby today since I have to get my bath it seemed kind of appropriate. Remember to wear your red today I am. Today Im sporting my red sweater mom made me. Ill see if I can get her to take a picture by looking all cute.
Bye for now, Aliza
