Snowstorms & Frigid Cold Weather
Why oh why does it take a snowstorm to keep people at home? Being a homebody can actually be an adventurous mission. Take for example the creative ways we humor our owners when we are at home. They are constantly trying to figure out what we are thinking as they chat away with their jibberish chatter. Of course, we look deep into their eyes, all at the same time as we are off in la-la land. We are talented that way you know!
I am curious what most people do during a snowstorm because I feel that they should make time for their choices even without a snowstorm. Hmmm….some articles speak about having a good attitude during a snowstorm – whatever does that mean? Gee, you humans just don’t get it most of the time, do you? Having a positive attitude is crucial all the time, DUH! Just look at Nancy while snowplowing this weekend – she is really working on keeping a positive attitude out there!
OK, so I will admit that it is extremely cold outside! Instead of Nancy searching for the best Monster Cookies recipe, how can I get her to look up dog cookie recipes? Surely some of my blog readers could send her your favorite dog cookie recipes PLEASE?! I don’t really ask much of anyone, so pretty please send her some recipes! I am going to go back to what I do no matter what the weather is – yup, nap time!

Ike & I stayed home during the snowstorm, read books, watched movies, and snuggled under the blankets. And we didn’t even have to do snow removal because our fabulous neighbor came over and did it for us (Stefan was out of town) – how lucky for us! It has been really cold and Ike is sick and tired of being dressed for the cold. We’re very much looking forward to the predicted milder stretch of weather for our daily walks. So here is one of Ike’s favorite dog cookie recipe (and the neighbor dogs love them too). We hope Nancy makes them for you and that you also enjoy them!
Pumpkin Puff Pet Treats
1-1/2 cups canned pumpkin
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3-1/2 cups oats
1/4 cup applesauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. Drop tablespoons full of the mixture onto an ungreased baking sheet (we use parchment paper) and press flat with a fork. Bake for approximately 15 minutes and then cool on a rack before serving. To maximize freshness, be sure to store in an airtight container.
Good Day Dana and Ike! I am so glad that you had each other to snuggle during the recent snowstorm. I was so excited when I saw that you sent that recipe again because I kept telling Nancy that you had sent her a recipe for dog treats in the past. So, thank you so much. This time, she will PRINT out the recipe and place it on the fridge to remind her to make these dog treats. Whoa, you are a lifesaver Dana! Many thanks for the Pumpkin Puff Pet Treats. Enjoy the Minnesota warm-up now. Louie
