I hope that you all read that like Frankenstein! ;-)

Domeek and I want to thank you all for the wonderful messages and love that you have been sending us! It's meant a ton! :-D

It's been nothing but family for the past week...I've met so many humans I don't know how to count them all! Today was our first day alone, phew!

Rest In Peace Grandma


Freckles the Dog

Dear All,

I'm sure you've all noticed that I've been MIA recently...my Grandma has been very sick for a the last couple of weeks and unfortunately died this morning. So Domeek and I will be taking a bit of time.

We'll be back!

Seal Point Saturday

Happy Monday Everyone!!

I hope that you are all doing wonderfully! :-D

On Saturday, I joined cousin Pippi for a wonderful walk around Seal Point Park in San Mateo. All I can say is, "wow...why haven't I been there before?!" The park is right alongside the Bay!

Freckles the Dog

It has a giant hill you can climb, lots of weird looking contemporary art fixtures, a putting green for those hoity toity executives, a 3 acre off leash dog park (holy cow, right?), and you can watch all planes land at SFO! :-D A dog's paradise, I swear!! I've already told Domeek that we're definitely coming back, soon!!!

Freckles the Dog

I was trying to race Pippi up the hill, unfortunately we were both weighed down by our un-athletic humans! Urg! I am happy to report though, that I eventually won the race...muahaha!

Freckles the Dog

We were sooooo high up, I think I might have been able to see all the way to Oakland! ;-)

Freckles the Dog

This is the putting green that I told you about, I don't know why...but I wasn't allowed to mark that grass! Pft! In the distance you can see the San Mateo marina, apparently there's a dog friendly restaurant at the very tip where we can eat outside and watch the boats drift by. Sometime this summer we'll check it out!

Freckles the Dog

There were tons of pups all over the park, check out my small Ruby looking friends (they weren't that nice though)! :-)

Freckles the Dog

The weather was excellent for a walk along the bay too, not too hot, not too cold, and slightly breezy! Aw!

Freckles the Dog

Hehehe, check out the ears...wasn't too windy, huh?! Muahaha!

I didn't have a chance to take photos of the dog park cause I was having too much fun, but man oh man, it was soooo cool! Check out the Yelp page for some pawesome photos!

Ok guys, have a great rest of the day!! :-D

Patriotic Goose Style

Happy Friday Everyone!

Wowee, I'm so glad that everyone sounds like they survived all those horrible bangs and kabooms! Man, this might have been my second Fourth of July, but I sure don't remember all that noise! Dang!! ;-)

Last year Domeek made me a very cool looking patriotic vest to wear on the Fourth, however, it lacked in the actual usability factor (every time I pulled on my leash, it fell off and I went running...muahaha!). So this year we decided to play things a bit safe and easy. Domeek totally borrowed Sebastian's DIY idea and created a fantabulous tie!

Freckles the Dog

Check it out! ;-) It was so lightweight that I didn't even care that I was wearing an (gasp!) accessory!

Of course, this meant that I had to pose for the obligatory Holiday photo...urg, thank dog for the chicken treat or this would have never happened! ;-) Hehehe!

Freckles the Dog

Luckily we ventured off to Cousin Pippi's house for the annual BBQ...woohoo!!! There was soooo much food, sadly though I didn't get many people treats. Domeek brought some nummies from home, but it's just not the same! :-P

Freckles the Dog

Thankfully it was waaaay cooler near the Bay, so Pippi and I happily lounged in the garden for most of the afternoon! Ah, that's the life!

And, even though I easily wore a special outfit for the day, cousin Pippi did not want to...not one little bit!!!  Hehehe!

Freckles the Dog

Pippi says, "Heck No, Back off dudes!" ;-)

Freckles the Dog

Eventually, someone got a lei around her neck...but she took it off the second she got a chance!

Then, this happened! Boo!!

Freckles the Dog

Darn it! Oh well, I got more treats! ;-) Pippi just needs to train her peeps a bit better!

Freckles the Dog

Well I hope that you all have a wonderful rest of the weekend.

Domeek just got a new pool for the backyard, so I'm sure the weird bathy thing will be in my future...hm...lucky me...

Tasty Tuesday - Give Us A Kiss...Smooch!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!

I hope that you've all been having a fantastic week! ;-)

So, last week, Domeek went out to the local bookstore and bought a fun new book...get this, for Me!! Oh yeahs! The book is called Feed Your Best Friend Better by Rick Woodford, the self proclaimed Dog Food Dude! It's full of nutritional information and recipes for people who want to either feed their pups completely homemade or partially homemade.

Freckles the Dog

We've already learnt tons of new things...like, did you know that terriers should avoid liver treats? Pft, I had no idea...and I'm a friggin' terrier!! Supposedly, we are preconditioned to accumulate excessive amounts of copper in our livers, which can result in some nasty illnesses, so treats with liver in them should be avoided! Gasp!

We've also already tested out two of the recipes, the first was a blueberry pancake that I could share with Domeek (that was Saturday's breakfast!), can you say nummy?! ;-)

And the second is called French Kiss Cookies...cause it helps give pups some lovely fresh breaths!

Ingredients:
1 cup of Beef, Chicken, or Fish Stock (make sure it doesn't contain onion) - I chose chicken stock
1 cup of finely chopped Fresh Parsley
1 cup of finely chopped Fresh Mint
2 tablespoons Canola Oil
2 1/3 cups of Whole Wheat Flour (plus more for rolling out)

Directions:

First you have to chop, heat, and combine all the ingredients...

Then you have to knead the dough and roll into a ball...

 Roll the dough out and cut into your preferred shape, I chose bones and fire hydrants! ;-)

After throwing them in the oven for about 25 - 45 minutes (30 minutes made the cookies crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle), let them cool...

...and EAT!!!

Nom Noms!!!

Seriously dudes and dudettes...you all know how picky an eater I am, but man, I devoured these cookies!! :-D Every time that Domeek goes into the kitchen, I keep thinking that I am going to get another one...hehehe!! 

You guys all have to try this stuff!!! ;-)

Ok guys, I'm off to bother Domeek again...have a great Tuesday!! :-D
