Buster’s Haiku


Hi, my name is Buster.

I am a guest blogger here on sanseilife.

I am staying with my Grandma for awhile and she has squirrels living right in her yard!  She loves Haiku and I love barking at those squirrels so I wrote this for her:

evils of the world

squirrels must be number one

Guest Bog Post From Monty, Quilting by Aunt Sandy


Hi, my name is Monty and I’m a guest blogger here on sanseilife.

One of my favorite topics is my Aunt Sandy’s quilting adventures.


Here mom didn’t think the pink squares were going to work but it was awesome.  Mom took a horrible picture so you can’t really tell how awesome it was.  Aunt Sandy is way more talented than Mom’s awful picture!


A very cute baby blanket don’t you think ?

imageThis one is so cheerful!  Sometimes Auntie Sandy makes us doggy nephews our own quilts. We keep track of the really cheerful ones so we can pester her for a new quilts when we need them!

Hot Day Dog Treats

imageSimple and quick freezer dog treats.

Hot Day Dog Treats

One small can of high-quality high taste dog food.  Mix with approximately triple quantity plain no sugar yogurt or Greek yogurt.  Fill 3 ounce Dixie bath cups 1/3 to 1/2 full, then fill cups with plain yogurt to top.   Add a mini dog treat on top and put in freezer.    Freezes fast due to small size.

Add ins: spoonful of pumpkin, ground flax seed,  small piece of fresh parsley or mint, small slice of fresh fruit, small piece of cooked liver, sprinkle nutritional yeast on top, other healthy stuff.

My doggies don’t eat the cups.  You may wish to peel the cups off the treat.




Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together….

Making dog food tonight



Ground bison and wild Atlantic salmon.
imageFree range chicken cooked in the pressure cooker until the bones were soft  and safe for my doggies to eat, about one and half hours.


Organic carrots kale and spinach and fresh peaches from the Western Slope of Colorado.
imageBrown rice, red rice and amaranth grain.

Oops, forgot to take a picture of some eggs I scrambled and added and oatmeal soak up some of the excess liquid.

Whew!  I think I have time for peanut butter jelly sandwich and a glass of wine, yay!

Make My Day The Rescue Dogs


A big thank you to T & T (you know who you are) for the anonymous gift to the rescue dogs.

We know from first hand experience that our rescuers sometimes have trouble finding donations of food to keep us fed and healthy until we find our forever homes.

Treats are a total luxury and rescue dogs do not get these very often.

Thanks to the thoughtfulness and generosity of T & T boxes of treats (huge boxes of treats containing smaller boxes and containers) were delivered to Clear Creek Animal Hospital who shared them with the different animal rescue groups they support.

Thank you T & T for remembering us and caring!

Love and dog licks,

Rommy, Roscoe and Monty





EnduraPet My Favorite Vendor at 2015 Denver Dog Show


This year I was pleased to see EnduraPet my favorite dog supplement provider at the Denver Dog Show.

About five years ago I was lucky enough to meet this company at the pet expo in Denver.

At the time my German Shepherd dog, Rommy, was about eight years old and was becoming lame and weak in the rear.  He would fall down every few steps.

EnduraPet was a brand new company just launching its products.  They were sincere and confident in their products and in the quality of their products.  On their recommendation, I tried Mobility Plus for Rommy’s weak joints. Within a few days I noticed Rommy being more stable. Within a couple of weeks he was walking comfortably again.

Here he is last week playing in the snow with his brothers almost 14 years old and still able to play hard.


Roscoe uses Calming Plus# during the summer storm season and they all use the Immune Support.

If you’re able to make it to the dog show this weekend EnduraPet is having a show special discount.  A great way to try their products. I’m going to try Daily Multi next!

Lesson from my dogs, even if its tough….

AK0368-2 (2)

My dogs have been working hard with me and trying to teach me to have a better daily outlook.  Their lesson:  Live in the moment.  Don’t live in the past, don’t live in the future, live in the moment.  Even if its tough.  They remind me that’s what Kelly would want me to do.  That was how he lived each day, each moment in the moment.
