National Puppy Day

Today, March 23, 2016, is National Puppy Day. I currently have two puppies, Gizmo and Cocoa and an older dog, Minnie. All three of my dogs are a little bit spoiled. Okay, they are a lot spoiled.

My long time pet, T-Bone died last Autumn, he was 16 years old. He was my pal, I always took him outdoors with me. He knew the back wood trails by heart. After he died, I told myself I was not going to get another dog. I still had my other dog, Minnie who is 11.  She is a min pin  who has recently gone partially blind. She still gets around the house just fine.

But then, I saw a picture of this little black puppy who needed a home. So, I brought him home. Gizmo added a lot of energy to the household.

Then, a couple weeks ago I was contacted about another puppy who was going to be sent to the pound. Well, I hated the idea, so I brought her home. One of the main reasons I brought her home was to help keep Gizmo entertained.

Cocoa and Gizmo became immediate pals. With the two of them playing together, Minnie is left alone. She likes to sit by me while I write.

So to celebrate National Puppy Day, I made them all homemade dog treats. I normally try to keep some around. But my schedule has been tight, I hadn’t made any in a while.

Until next time…peace
