When puppy gets in trouble

That cute face gets us everytime.  so when she actually does something bad, it’s just that much harder to keep a straight face and get mad at her.

can’t quite remember what her crime was at this instance..but I happened to be on the couch and started taking pictures and got these hilarious puppy sorry poses.

  1. what daddy?  i didn’t do anything
  2. ok…maybe it was me
  3. i’m sorry
  4. yay kisses!

Making another batch of yummy doggie cookies for Ellie cuz she has a friend coming over!

changed it up this time around so that it has more of a cookie crunch versus the other one made.

1 1/2 cups quick oats, blended to grind to fine powder
1 banana
1/2 cup Peanut Butter
1 tsp Honey

mix all.  roll onto the Silpat to 1/4″ thickness or so.  Use cute cookie cutter to create shape.  Bake at 350F for 15 mins.

Ellie: Mommy, please stop taking pictures and put it in the oven!

First Birthday Party for puppy Ellie

Posted by on Jan 26, 2016 in Around the House, Blog, Ellie our Samoyed, Family | 0 comments

So if you have been following…the birthday hat won’t stay on, the cake is ready…so it’s time to party!  the official first birthday party for our puppy Ellie has begun!

First, the goods: a new dino toy, a jar of natural (no salt, no sugar) Peanut Butter, beef treats, and a smoked bone – not a bad loot for our girl I think.


The obligatory pose with her goods (this shot took awhile to get since we think she’s afraid of the candle)


one with her daddy


make your wish sweetheart!  (likely more squirrels to chase, more bones to chew, and tennis balls to play with)
