Favorite Walk: the back yard. she never goes near the front door.
Best Tricks: licking everyone as much as possible
Arrival Story: We knew a family that adopted Ginger. I would pet sit Ginger while her owners went on vacation (taking their purebred dog) and leaving her to be alone. I felt so sorry for her b/c I could tell she was being abused and the children of this family confirmed same. I finally decided to call them and ask if I could have her. They did not hesitate to say yes and added that she has been trouble since they got her...pooping on the floor, etc. I went and got her that day. It took her 3 days to come out of the bathroom and another year to even be able to be comfortable with us. Best part of all...she has never once used the bathroom in the house. Turns out it was their other dog that was doing that. She has been a blessing though you have to walk on egg shells around her becasue she has suffered such trauma in the past.
Our crew is saddened to learn that Dogster will be closing all of our pet pages by March, 2014. We have made so many wonderful furriends on here and, without Dogster we would not have made it through many dark days. Our Pup Pals have laughed, cried, worried and celebrated with us for many years. This has been a place fur us to let our voices be heard, seek advice on medical issues from pup pals who may have been through the same experience, share our special days and photos to accompany same.
We love all of you so very much and have anxiety over losing touch with many of you!! As such, mommy has asked us to let everyone know how to find us once we are gone from Dogster.
Mommy has a Facebook page and her name on there is “ Deanna End Bsl Coleman Smith”. She set up a new email address to keep up with all of you and it is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please keep in touch with us…we love all of you!!!
Thank you so very much to Dogster fur making me Diary of the Day a couple of days ago. Mom & Dad missed it because they were busy helping other dogs try to find a furever home at Pet Adoptions for the rescue they work with. I forgive them fur missing my special day since they are making a difference in the lives of other needy furbabies. However, I do expect something special in my bellay to make up for it! BOL! Thank you to all my pup pals who gave me prezzies and messaged me. Love all of you!!
MOM IS MAKING THESE FUR US TONIGHT!! WHOOO HOOOO!!!
Pumpkin Dog Biscuits
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons dry milk
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour *
1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)
Preheat oven to 350.
In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley (if using, optional). Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.
Roll dough between 1/4 - 1/2 inches - depending on your dog's chew preferences, ask first - and use biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, gathering and re-rolling scraps as you go. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down.
Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog.
* Brown rice flour gives the biscuits crunch and promotes better dog digestion. Many dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not, like many people I know, tolerate wheat.
