This Week’s Extreme Dog Treats!

Hi! Roscoe, Monty and Henry here with a guest blog post.

This weeks extreme dog treats? Turkey tails,  lamb pizzle and wild caught cod skins.  Smelly fish skin is one of our favorites but mom sometimes passes over smelly fish skins and gets something like turkey tails…

This week we got something smelly and something boring, a bit light on the snacks this week because:

Mom decided to start researching eco-friendly toys, eco-friendly doggy deodorizing products,  and a FURminator for Roscoe!

When Roscoe was young, before we figured out he had Addison’s disease, he had no fur because of his illness, so no brushing for him because he didn’t need it! Now that he’s been on his medication for Addison’s he’s got lots of fur. But hates brushing because he never had to deal with it before.   The FURminator gets more of that loose hair off of Roscoe before he gets annoyed and whimpers for mom to go away! The stupid brush was over $70  but they just changed the packaging  and the same brush in the old packaging was almost 50% off! Yay mom way to shop!   But mom just think about how many treats you could’ve bought for $35…

 

True Confessions

So, I thought it was embarrassing enough to admit I thought the Pooh emoji 💩was a Hershey kiss emoji! Here’s my latest confession:

I have a sticker on my car, a magnetic sticker, for a friend’s daughter who needs a kidney. It says “Ally Needs a Kidney”

I  was visiting a friend’ s granddaughter in the hospital and I parked my car on the street near the Children’s Hospital.

My friend happened to be there when I was visiting. When I was ready to leave she said she drive me to my car. She asked which car did you drive?  The one with the kidney sticker on it?   Yup.  We drove up and down the few streets I could’ve parked on near the hospital looking for the sticker.  We drove past a car just like mine but no sticker….  Then we drove down a few more streets that were a little farther out.  No car with a sticker.  Eventually we decided my car was stolen because there was no car with a sticker on it and called the police and my insurance company to report my car stolen.

We took one more sweep and realized the car without a sticker was my car.  I had taken the sticker off to run it through the car wash and forgot to put it back on!  Thank goodness my friend is easygoing.  She just laughed and said she was glad we found my car.  We spent several hours talking while on this search and dinner after we found my car.  At least we are all caught up on our gossip!

SomePlace Else Brewery

I love to support local businesses.

This little brewery is right in my neighborhood.  Yummy beer and friendly atmosphere.  A place I can take my sketchbook to draw and feel safe if I go alone.  Doggies are welcome but I can’t decide which of my boys to take, they are all stinkers and would pester the other customers for attention and treats.

Here is the deal:

Of course I purchased my membership, I am number 56 (born in 1956).

They have pinball, skee ball and a whole bunch of games for kids.  Bring your own food.  Check out bingo night, trivia night or one of their other crazy nights.

How about open mic night?

Origami Flower Bouquets for ICU and Infusion Center

When I asked the ladies who run the oncology infusion centers for ideas for more ways to reach their patients they both shared a wish for some help for critical patients.  These patients have been admitted to the hospital and because of compromised immune systems they cannot receive flowers!

My friend Seth is a master origami artist and volunteered to help me make these Bouquets!  The butterflies were given to me by another friend Janice.

We hope to bring a little joy!

I wish we could donate these awesome folding boxes Seth make but they take him six hours to create….

 

Pet Portraits at Paint N Sip

Barkley’s Mom and my Mom spent the evening painting their favorite boys!

Bright acrylic paints that Auntie Jane went crazy with!

Too fun!  These paints are forgiving and even Mom felt comfortable using them.

Henry Paint N Sip

She picked this picture of me experiencing my first snow storm.  Yikes what a day that was!

Henry and snow

I love snow now!
