Sometimes, you just have to take matters into your own paws.
Lucy, Chef de Cuisine. Lucy is an 8-year-old Chiweenie. She's neurotic, but very lovable and protective. She scared away a would be intruder at 12 a.m. a few years ago.
Mocha, Sous Chef. Mocha is a 5-year-old rescue Chiweenie. She is sweet, tough, and loves food! She sings every morning before breakfast.
Lexxi, Taste Tester. Lexxi is a 12-year-old rescue Morkie. She is the sweetest dog on the planet.
There were no treats left in the house. Shame on mommy. So we staged a coup and took over the kitchen. No more waiting around for store bought bones, we just made our own. We knew how to Google. Our recipe was inspired by The Cookie Rookie.
We whipped up a batch and gave mom the recipe. She was closely monitored as she gave it a shot herself. Mom didn't have to use a rolling pin. She just used her hands. We didn't want paw prints in our dough, so we used the pin.
After all that taste testing, I needed a makeover, so I went to my auntie, who always grooms me so beautifully. Mommy knows her since they are little kids. We love her. I looked so good, I went out partying for Mardi Gras. Check out our auntie's place!
Watch our mom make us treats! She did pretty good for her first try. We stood right near her watching every move she made.
Watch the video below for the full procedure and to see if we liked mom's attempt at making us dog treats.
Mix together flour, baking soda and egg. Plop in the peanut butter, then drip in your honey. Last, pour in your water and mix well. When it starts to come together, continue mixing with your hands.
Spread a bit of oil (mom used olive oil because that's what she had on hand) onto the cookie sheet.
Mommy only used half the dough. She wrapped the other half in plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator. She wanted to see if we liked her treats as much as the ones we made before she made a huge batch.
To see how mommy handled the dough and made the bones, watch the video below.
Place pan into a preheated 350 degree oven and cook for 15 minutes. When a toothpick comes out clean, they are done.
J&J Vaccine, Allergies, Sightseeing in NYC We love our mommy so much and we want her around for a long time. We saw how sad she was when three people she knew died in January because of this bad virus mommy calls COVID. We were happy when she went to the Javits Center in the city to get her Johnson and Johnson vaccine, recommended by three of her doctors, all top doctors in their fields.
We missed her so much and we kept asking daddy when she'd be home. But, we understood. When she finally came home, we did the happy dance.
Daddy got his vaccine the other day and gets his second shot in April. As of yesterday, over 7 million have been vaccinated in New York and a baby was born with antibodies from her mother's first vaccination!
Mommy taught us to share so we offered some to our cousins on our Grandma's side of the house. Baby is a 15-year-old Yorkie and Mia is a 12-year-old Japanese Chin who is convinced she's royalty.
So what did us five canines think? Check out reactions in the video below.
