How to make your new dog feel welcomed

My fur-family is about to get bigger. I can’t wait to welcome another pooch into my circle.  And while we are on a topic of a new poochy; here is the list of basic things to get, so your pooch feels extra special.

  • Water dish
  • Food bowl
  • Dog food/treats
  • Food mat (think of this as a bib for your floor. Puppies can be messy eaters)
  • Sleeping bed (I have one in each room of the house)
  • Collar with dogs name and your phone number
  • Leash
  • Brush/comb
  • Toys, toys, and more toys (better it chews on a rubber toy, than your shoes and cables)
  • Toothbrush/toothpaste – I’m not kidding
  • Tick Tweezers
  • Old towels
DIY Peanut Butter and Banana Frozen Doggy Treats — August 1, 2017

DIY Peanut Butter and Banana Frozen Doggy Treats

  • 6 oz. Creamy Peanut Butter

Instructions

  1. Mix ingredients together with a fork, until well blended.
  2. Pour the mixture into silicone ice cube tray and freeze for a few hours or until hard. You could use a regular ice cube tray, but they might not come out as easily.
  3. Use the knife to run over the top on the tray and remove any excess of the mix. Also, be sure to push mixture down so that they are nice and full – just gently tap the tray on the counter.
  4. Take out of the freezer and serve to your dog, one cube at a time!
