Two years later....

and we still miss you. The holidays just aren't the same without our Athena. She was the best at unwrapping her gifts and even better at finding them under the tree. She knew if she stepped on each package one of them was bound to squeak, which meant it was hers to open.

Loved and never forgotten, long live Queen Athena.

Wishing ....

you and yours {including the furry four legged family members} a warm wonderful holiday... with plenty of napping. Blessings and tidings of good cheer.

Dog days of Summer

We've all been enjoying the last days of summer holiday in the mountains. Doggies are having a blast. They love knowing where their people are 24/7 AND getting to swim and chase critters ain't so bad either.

Introducing Ms. Cleo

Our new cousin, the cutiest Cleo. We have yet to get our paws on her but can't wait to smell that puppy breath and feel those little sharp teeth gnawing on my arm or ear. There's nothing better than puppy snuffling and rolling around on the floor with a fur ball. Welcome to the pack Cleo.

Introducing Frank of Border Collie Bistro

Recently I was contacted by Amy at Border Collie Bistro after a click to favorite her sweets shop for the four legged fur balls. BCB is an all natural gourmet dog treat shop.

In their own words:

If you are looking for an all natural gourmet dog treat with no unnecessary ingredients, then you have come to the right place. All of our treats are made with the highest quality ingredients available. We take pride in developing recipes that are full of whole food ingredients, many come from our local farmer's market. You wont find any byproducts, hydrogenated oils (such as in yogurt dipped or carob dipped treats) or dyes in our treats. We love custom orders and can adapt most of our treats to suit your dog's dietary needs. We believe dogs should be fed the same high quality food as their human family therefore only use "human grade" ingredients. All of our treats are made with as few ingredients as possible. We only use what is needed to make a wholesome tasty treat that you dog will love.

Amy sent me a few pictures of their own beloved black and white and I got to work on an original hand carved stamp that will be used to produce a larger stamp for the packaging.

I will be ordering treats for my own sweeties and I'll report back on which are their favorites. Until then.... browse the amazing and diverse collection of cookies OR order your canine companion a special birthday cake!

Thanks Amy. This was great fun to work on and can't wait to see the finished product.

Babying the Baby

Playing too hard can get yourself hurt... at least long enough to get a ride back to the house.
