Don't have anything in particular to blog about today so thought I'd just share some puppy love!

Hampton is just a little over a year now but he still is like a puppy to me. ZuZu will be 9 this year (yikes!) and I still call her my puppy.  Its funny how they still think of themselves as being the same size as they were when they were just a few months old. Sometimes I don't think Hampton realizes how big he has is now by the way he tries to squeeze himself on my lap. He manages to fit but he's just not as small as he used to be! Too cute.


Hope everyone is having a good day today!


p.s. Btw we have a new valentine's comic up. Just a simple story but definitely mirrors reality. I'm also working on another flash and hope to put it up soon. Having fun learning how to use it but no expert by any means so its taking me a bit longer to create.

We're going to be trying out a new project this month - silk screening! Its something I've always wanted to do and with some time off this month we thought it was the best time to try it out. We just need a few more things on our supply list and then we can get started. I'll document on here how it goes! I'm pretty excited about it.

When Starbuck got sick I really started to think about what type of food the bb's are eating, including their treats. Last Christmas Dave got me a kitchen aid mixer to support my interest in baking for them. And since then I've had lots of fun baking. For those of you who don't know me its amazing that I'm actually spending time in the kitchen. I barely even cook for Dave!

Anyway, here are some pics of carrot and molasses pupcakes I made. These pupcakes are good for our pups as they are high in vitamin A and potassium.

The carrots and molasses:

Baking:
 

Waiting anxiously:
 

They are ready!

 

ZuZu gets first bite, she's older than Hampton and plus it was her birthday that day:


You can add yogurt or cream cheese icing ( fyi - not the low-fat kind for either) but i decided not to as too much dairy isn't always good for puppies.


These will keep in the fridge for 1 week. Let me know if you want the recipe!

*updated*

Here is the recipe from 'The Healthy Dog Cookbook' by Jonna Anne with Mary Straus.

Prep time: 15 min
Makes about 12 pupcakes

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 cup finely grated carrots
1/2 cup blackstrap molasses
1/2 cup water
1 egg
1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil

1.  Preheat oven to 350F / 180C
2. Combine the flour, baking powder and oats in a small bowl
3. Thoroughly combine the carrots, molasses, water, egg, and oil in a large bowl
4. Fold the dry ingredients into the wet and mix well.
5. Pour the batter into small cupcake pans and bake for 20 minutes

Note: Store the Birthday Cupcakes in the refrigerator for 1 week.

We'd love to hear from you once you give this a try!

Hampton Monroe and I had a serious talk yesterday.  He was feeling a little discouraged.

I told him that he's still young and if he works really really hard and never stops dreaming... someday he'll be able to dance like Daddy.  I keep telling him the secret  is to move his shoulders more. Unfortunately coordination was not one of the skills he was born with.  He takes after his Mummy (Grace).

I missed watching the Grammy's last night! However twitter was all the buzz with the latest updates so in a way I feel like I kind of saw it. I heard it was actually one of the best Grammy's in a loooong time. Darn! Oh well! I'll have to go check out who was best / worst dressed online after I write this. I hope Rachel Zoe's clients all 'shut it down' :) BTW is her show coming back on for another season? I wonder what happened or is happening with Tay...but I digress.

So I guess you can say I am now addicted to Twitter. I actually signed up when it first came out but didn't go on it much. But now I can't help myself. I'm a bit scared tho of where this puts me in terms of the behavioral disorders I might have LOL!

D and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary today. We first started dating 10 years ago today! Amazing how fast time goes by. We went out for a nice dinner and then for desert. My tummy is very very round and bloated right now but also very happy :)

We also finally launched our new puppy jones website! Yahoo!  I couldn't have asked for a better anniversary present. D timed it so that it would launch on the same day. Yes he's very sweet. I've been wanting this new site for a long while now and he's basically behind pulling it all together and the look and feel of it. We still have to finish up a few of the other pages which we're working on but I'm pretty happy with what we have so far. I really just wanted a space for all things related to the bb's and its nice to be able to have the blogs all integrated into one site. Thanks D!! xoxo
