Chewy Sweet Potato and Blueberry Bone Bites Recipe

Last week, I found a dog bone shaped cookie cutter at our local craft store. I bought it. I didn't want my new cookie cutter to collect dust so I formulated a homemade dog treat recipe and then got to work baking them. I call them "Chewy Sweet Potato and Blueberry Bone Bites". They are soft cookies - not crunchy.

They look pretty yummy, huh? Here's how to make these tasty treats at home for your dog-

Teaching Kids to #ScoopThatPoop

As a mother of two daughters, I am always teaching them the importance of how to properly care for animals and be a responsible pet owner. I also teach them about wild animals and how it's best not to mess with them. There is so much to learn about caring for pets and animals, and it amazes me how much my oldest daughter already knows. She's 9 years old.

My other daughter is but a toddler at 2 years old, so she is still learning. For now, I mostly try to teach her how to be gentle with our pet rats and Shiner. She also loves animals and when we meet new doggies when we're out and about. They always put a smile on her face.

Lily and the Target dog. 

Over the weekend, we were shopping for back to school clothes at Target. Violet, my 2 year old, picked out a Barbie doll that had a pet dog. The dog actually poops and Barbie can clean up after her dog. I couldn't help but to laugh at the toy. But hey, if they've been making human baby dolls that can poop for years why not teach kids to be responsible pet owners with a pooping dog toy too?

Black Cat Appreciation Day | Black Cat Super Stars of the Internet

August 17th is National Black Cat Appreciation Day. Black cats are often overlooked for adoption at shelters. Why? Well, I think it's silly but there is a stigma associated with black cats. I'm sure you've heard it before - "black cats are bad luck". Supposedly, if one crosses your path it's unlucky.

First of all, that's just ridiculous and a silly supersition. Did you know that is some countries like Great Britain and Japan, it is considered GOOD luck to have a black cat cross your path? It's even good luck to keep a black cat in your home in some places around the world.

Black cats are just as good a pet as any other color of cat available. To show our appreciation for black cats on this special day, we've created a list of black cat super stars of the internet. Most of the cats on our list have blogs. If you've never met them before, stop by say hello and wish them a Happy Black Cat Appreciation Day!
