Pet Cupake Recipe – Pawsome Peanut Butter Pupcakes

Pet Cupake Recipe – Pawsome Peanut Butter Pupcakes

With fall in full swing I have found that it’s my favorite time of year to my cooking on and in ‘pawtciular’, I love finding new recipes to make for Mia – our in-house pup. So, naturally when I came across this recipe via Rebecca’s blog ( Sugar & Soul )  and fellow doggy momma, I knew I just had to share it.

Rebecca's beloved dog( Rebecca’s beloved pooch and fellow pupcake lover )

Mia, like all dachshunds, loves to feast on just about anything home-made and fresh made. Heck, this little beloved beast loves to feast period! So, cooking for her is not only fun but quite fulfilling too – and yes, pun intended. 😉

Sniff Design Studio's In-House Puppy - Mia the beloved dachshund

What I favor most about these pet-treats, is that these are really simple to make and are completely dog-safe. They are made with whole wheat flour, yogurt, apples, honey and peanut butter. The frosting on top is unsweetened whipped cream. So yummy for the tummy! Enjoy!

So, without fur ado meet Pepper!

Woof Wednesday – How Dogs Smell

Woof Wednesday – How Dogs Smell

Come and dig this delightful animation discussing the science behind a dog’s sense of smell and how they use it to see the world around them.

You may have heard the expression that dogs ‘see with their noses.’ But these creature’s amazing nasal architecture actually reveals a whole world beyond what we can see. Take a moment to watch this TED-ED Original illustrate how a dog’s nose can smell the past, the future and even things that can’t be seen at all. Totally ‘pawsome!’

Ch Ch Ch Chiia! DIY Halloween Dog Costume

DIY chia pet halloween dog costume image

What’s orange, green all over, has eyes and walks? Why it’s a Chia Pet! Er…Chia Dog. So, this Halloween why not turn your pooch into the all famous Chia Pet? Not only is this costume adorable, ultra easy to make, but eco friendly too! So all last minute ‘pup mothers’ out there, like me, click here to get more details on how to creat this DIY costume. Or visit here, to see another tutorial on how to create comfortable harness that will hold up the little ‘potters’ legs.

Materials:
•Dog sweater
•Dried sheet moss
•Orange felt fabric
•Muslin

First, use a glue gun or other adhesive to attach the sheet moss to the dog sweater (bonus points if you find a used one!). We recommend using moss because this biodegradable, organic material is much more eco-friendly than fake plastic plants, and it’s significantly lighter than sod.

Next, use the orange felt and muslin to create a set of plant pots for your pup’s legs. Viola!
