Amber the Pug

20131219-215151.jpg

When I moved to Lincoln in September, Amber just loved to snarl at me, bark like no dog has ever barked before.

Now, three months later she always follows me around and begs for attention. It’s cute.

Also she snores louder than my brother- enjoy her dashing photo. Amber sends her greetings, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL! AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

Happy Holidays + Recipe

The closest you will ever get…to dogs singing English.

Holiday Recipe | Apple Cinnamon Drops

1 large apple
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup of water
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1 cup oatmeal
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/8 cup whole wheat flour

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 ° F (180 ° C).

Core, slice and mince the apple (use a food processor if you have one). In a large bowl, combine the minced apple bits, honey, water, cinnamon, and oatmeal. Gradually blend in the wheat flour, adding enough to form a stiff dough.

In a small bowl, add 1/8 cup wheat flour. Spoon the dough by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets, spacing about 2 inches (5cm) apart. Using the bottom of a glass dipped in the wheat flour (to prevent sticking), flatten each spoonful of dough into a circle. Adjust the size of the drops based on how big a treat you like to feed your dog.

Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and flip each cookie to brown evenly on both sides. Reduce oven temperature to 325 ° F (180 °C). Return to oven and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Let cool overnight.

Makes about 3 dozen crunchy cookies, depending on how big you make them.

The Gift of Laughter

Unemployment decreased to 8.6% this week. Which means, families are getting back on their feet. and feeding their pets (of COURSE, that’s what they would do!)

After reading several articles, I know that despite the inflation, loss of jobs, or family struggles–families and pet owners are not cutting corners on their buds. With Christmas and the holidays just around the corner, the pet industries are increasing their profits.

To join in, I have found a great toy which you can enjoy with your dog. 

Its decently priced, I assume. At $10.00 you can give the gift of fun and laughter…not only for your dog(s), but for your family as well. DOG TOY

Think about it….

THERE IS NO PRICE-TAG for LAUGHTER
