Dog Treats Made with Love

We had a busy Saturday.  We went up to Pet Smart to get Cali more dog food. Then we ran all over the place trying to find an air tight container that wouldn't break the bank.  After about the 5th place we gave up and just bought a container that said it would hold 30 pounds. Which was what we had purchased.  It didn't fit all of the food.  Oh well, we tried. Then we had to go to the grocery store to get a few things.  I wanted to go so I could get the rest of the ingredients for the treats I wanted to make for Cali.  The upside was we  walked almost 2 miles.
I have been looking at home made healthy dog treats since before Maverick passed. I found the perfect recipe on Pinterest. I was redirected to a blog called eating bird food.  The name of the recipe is Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats. There are only 4 ingredients.

Insurance Frustrations and Cali Girl

I don't know what it is with insurance companies telling a Dr. what they can and can't prescribe.  There have been a number of people in my firm that have had to fight to get the medication they were prescribed by their Doctor.  I have been dealing with this myself.  It is beyond frustrating.  Especially if you finally find something that works perfect for you or a family member and the insurance company say no.  OK  that is enough venting for the moment.

Now we can talk about something fun.  My Cali Girl.

We have had our Cali girl for just over a week and we LOVE her. She loves cuddles.  It is a bit interesting trying to cuddle a 40 pound dog versus a 15 pound dog.  I could hold Maverick like a baby.  Poor Cali's head is huge.  But she loves to lay it on me.  I love it too.

Cali loves to play with this cute yellow toy I got her.  One morning I was sleeping and she brought it to me to play tug of war.  I couldn't resist playing with her. The guys and get Cali really w…

Cali - The Jack Russell Terrier Lab Mix

Our pup passed away the day after Christmas last year.  Maverick was almost 16 years old. She was the sweetest baby girl.  It has been hard not having her with us. I still get choked up when I think about her or talk about her.  I loved her so much and can't even begin to tell you how much I miss her.
Since we have been missing the companionship of a dog since Maverick passed away.  My husband and I agreed we would wait until we got back from the cruise to get a dog.  Apparently my husband has been looking at dogs and trying to find the right fit for us.  Lucky for us he did find the perfect dog for us.  Her name is Cali.  Cali is a jack Russell Terrier Lab mix. Cali is a year and a half and she is already fixed AND potty trained.  She really sounds like a wonderful little girl.  We spoke to the lady that is needing to re-home Cali last night for quite a while.  We get to go meet Cali tonight and if we would like,she said we could bring Cali home.  I am so very excited.  I miss t…

SparkPeople to the rescue!

I stepped on the scale in March 2017 and was shocked to see the scale had risen so high.  How could I be 242 pounds.  So I went to look for an app that would help me track my food intake.  My husband and son told me an app to use but I ended up down loading SparkPeople.  The App ended up being so good, my son down loaded the app as well. My son Blake has a degree in Health Promotion so he is the one I defer to for any health questions I have. When Blake got on board with SparkPeople I knew I was on the right track. I have lost 11 pounds so far. I have 64 pounds to lose by November 19th when our first cruise sets sail. If I am able to lose the remaining 64 pounds before the cruise it will only get me down to 175. I am going to try and stick to tracking my food and making healthier choices but, I know there are going to be days where I go over my calorie range.  I am not going to beat myself up about it.  It is a weak to relax and enjoy life and my family.  When we get back I will worr…
