Halloween on the Mile...

Halloween was a success this year! There were so many local events to choose from, we decided to spotlight Halloween on the Mile in Coral Gables, Florida. The event was held at the Coral Gables Museum, and there was quite the turn out, over 40 dogs registered for the pet costume contest and they did not disappoint! There was everything from tiny clowns to superhero's, and they were all very well behaved pooches too :) All the pictures taken at the event is  on FlickR page (CLICK HERE- to be redirected) We did our best to capture all the pups so if you see your fur-baby and would like a digital image, please contact us and we would be more than happy to email you a digital full size image. 

 Here is a sneak peak of the event...

Chicken & Veggies Rice Dog Treats

Our pup Rocky has his fair share of allergies and tummy problems aside from taking thyroid medication. So as you can imagine we try and go above and beyond to make sure he is happy and comfortable. We did notice that the medication has been making him a little bit more hungry than usual and so I started giving him his usual favorite Bark4Green Pizza Bites and felt that wasn't enough ( they are low in calorie, which are great for what they are made for, training purposes or 'On-The-Go'). Rocky needed something with more calories so I decided to throw in a couple of his favorite ingredients in a bowl, which were simple clean and healthy; brown rice, shredded chicken, green peas and carrots, mixed them up to make mini muffin bite sized protein packed snacks. We always like to have plain shredded chicken in the fridge, (if you would like the recipe, click here!) aside from the shredded chicken, I cooked up the brown rice- which I buy the organic bag from Whole Foods, and a frozen bag of mixed peas and carrots, also from Whole Foods. Toss the ingredients in a large bowl along with the flour and egg and spoon into mini muffin cups, bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Lets just say Rocky LOVES his protein bites ;)

Pitbull Awareness Month

01 October 2015

Pitbull Awareness Month

Another important cause we would like to support is Pitbull awareness month. Pitbulls are sadly very misjudged and are not given fur-ever homes because of the reputation they were given. We came across this beautiful photography series of rescue dogs named, Not A Bully, in which photographer Douglas Sonders showcases 'bully breeds' and shares beautiful photographs and stories of bully breed pups. Did you know that 22% of shelters euthanize Pit Bulls and a staggering 40% of shelter dogs are 'Bully Breeds' :(  Please help create awareness.


We're trying to do our part to support these fur-babies, so if you or someone you know is a Pittie lover check out our Pit Love Collection...
