Celebrate with your pets



Heads up!  April 18th is National Pet Owner’s Day!  My credo is “Any reason for a party”, so I’m looking forward to it.

How will you celebrate?  I suggest the following:

Take your dog for a long walk.

Play Frisbee at the park with your dog.

Rub your dog’s belly.

Play tug with your dog.

Schedule a long-overdue vet appointment – it’s flea and heartworm season, after all.

Spay or neuter your dog.

Make your own dog treats (recipe below).


  • 1 lb. chicken liver
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup dried milk


Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour onto a baking tray and bake at 400 until the sides start to come away from the pan or a knife comes out clean.

Let it cool, cut into pieces and store in fridge!

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
