Long Time No Bark!!

So, anyway, a small update as to what I told you in the beginning of the month:

Daddy's momma is trying to talk the owner of this place into letting her rent to own. We've all got our paws crossed and our breath is being held. We're waiting for her and the landlord to get back to us; and, whatever they say, determines whether or not we move. It determines our future, you could say. So, guys, keep your paws crossed. Maybe this will be Daddy's first victory in the battle against BSL.

Anyway, Halloween is sneaking up! Which could only mean one thing: Costumes, pumpkins, kids and... you guessed it!... doggie treats. So, if you're reading this, here is a Halloween recipe that your dogs may enjoy. Don't be afraid to try it out. It came from The Good Food Cookbook for Dogs by Donna Twichell Roberts.

Creepy Cat Cake

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup honey
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts

1 Place Flour, oatmeal, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl and mix to combine. Make a well in the center.
2 In a seperate bowl, stir together pumpkin, honey, egg and water.
3 Pour pumpkin mixture into flour mixture and stir for 4 to 5 strokes. Add walnuts and stir just to combine all ingredients.
4 Spray inside of large cat mold and parchment paper with cooking oil. Place cat mold on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Spoon pumpkin mixture into the mold to within 1/4 inch of the top. Remaining batter can be spooned into greased muffin cups and baked alongside the cat. Bake in preheated 400F oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool in mold for 5 minutes. Remove from mold and continue cooling on rack. Makes 1 cat cake and about 3 or 4 muffins.

Have a pawfect Howl O Ween!!!


Wow, It's Been a While

Long time, no post.

Sorry about the delay. Things have been hectic. For a while, I won't be posting myths of the weeks. This is; like I said; because things have been hectic. I thought I'd just pop in and make a quick update.

So, the family found out that their insurance doesn't cover pit bulls and since we're renting; that's BAD news. And, today, we found out we might be getting evicted. I hope things go smoothly. Anyway, I thought I'd let my few readers know where I've been. I'm sorry it's been so long. Don't worry, I'm still alive and no one is giving me away! I'll be here until the day I croak.

Wait, pit bulls don't croak...



So, while reading an article about guinea pigs and why you shouldn't buy live animals from pet shops: Daddy noticed a link to PeTA with quotes form PetCo employees. Curious (because he's anti-PeTA and, for some reason is attracted by their stupidity) he clicked on the link. Well, the page was gone. But, what showed up APPALLED him.

"This could have happened for several reasons:
1. The page may be extinct, just as you soon could be, too, if you are still loading your plate with hamburgers, cheese pizzas, and other artery-clogging animal-based foods.
2. The page may have been moved, like animals in circuses, who are hauled around the country in poorly ventilated trailers and boxcars for up to 50 weeks a year in all kinds of extreme weather conditions.
3. You may have made a mistake while typing the address, or we may have made a mistake when creating the link. Mistakes can be corrected. When Anna Wintour got a dead raccoon dumped on her lap by an angry anti-fur protester, she should have learned that wearing the pelts of animals who were cruelly gassed, strangled, or electrocuted is a big mistake. Yet the creepy Cruella continues to push fur in the pages of Vogue.
4. Our Web server may be malfunctioning. When stun guns and “killing machines” in slaughterhouses malfunction, live chickens get dumped into tanks of scalding-hot water (for feather removal) while they are completely conscious, and workers cut the hooves off terrified, conscious cows.
What you can do:
1. You can try again, correcting any misspellings in the address.
2. You can read our Frequently Asked Questions, to see if your question is answered there.
3. You can visit our home page or our Web sites about the following issues:

4. You can go vegetarian. This won’t help you find the link you’re looking for, but it will make you feel better, reduce your risk of debilitating diseases, and help save thousands of animals all at the same time. It will also answer the question, “If we teach our children to be kind to animals, why do we adults still exploit them?”
5. You can do something right now to help the animals who are suffering on factory farms, on fur farms, in circuses, and in laboratories: You can join PETA.Please visit our site map or search engine if you feel you've reached this page in error."

Now, forcing that shit on people? That is JUST like PeTA.
