Did somone say treat?!

This weekend I tried my hand at some homemade DIY treats that will make your four-legged friends love you even more!

I always walk by those expensive doggy bakeries and wonder why can’t I do that? My goal was to make it happen! Armed with a two page list of dog friendly ingredients, I had plans to make 5 different treats from scratch. The holiday madness started to get to me in the store so I quickly grabbed the goods to make one variety and found an enticing DIY dog treat kit. I thought, why not… someone has to try these!

After a few hours with two very anxious dogs and a helpful husband, voilà! Find out more about these treats below!

Pet Photography

Although I took several photography classes in college, I still consider myself an amatuer picture taker. My father in law gave us a nice Canon digital SLR for a wedding gift. My goal is to learn how to use it! What better subjects to start with than my furr children. From my short experience with this particular camera, I think the key is patience with dog shots. Charlie and Mina were more interested in smelling and licking the camera than posing and seeming happy for my photo shoot. You would think they don’t understand English at all!

I sat down in the mulch during lunch and just waited for the dogs to settle. After about 20 minutes of waiting, they finally started to look like their cute natural selves that I was trying to capture. They look so calm and innocent in these pictures. Very deceiving!

Throughout the growth of the blog, hopefully you will see some improvement in my pet photography! I really enjoyed taking these of the dogs. Maybe a new side career?? Petsmart does it, why not me!
