News from the Dog World:
Well great. Now I've got TWO dogs that don't want to eat. (I almost typed "don't want to knit." Guess where my head is these days.) This morning Cammie turned up her nose at her food. She seemed to feel ok, unlike a couple of weeks ago when she was obviously not feeling well. But it's not at all like Cammie to turn up her nose at food. Luckily, I'd made a homemade frozen dog treat (recipe, such as it is, below) the other night. I got one of those out and fed it to her, and she ate her regular food (including her meds) after that. Maybe the cool stuff made her tummy feel better? She's outside now woofing at imaginary objects, so I hope she's feeling better.
I'm still trying to get some weight back on Ivan. Of course this is just the 3rd day since we got them back from boarding, but he's still being pretty picky. I'll cook up some more rice for them later today. Sometimes that seems to help settle old and sensitive tummies.
I hate it when my dogs don't feel good.
Frozen dog treats (a la "Frosty Paws":
1 large (32 oz) container of yogurt
about 1/4 cup peanut butter
about 1/4 cup honey
Blend together until smooth. Pour into individual containers. Freeze.
That's what I did the other night. I have little Gladware containers that I can reuse, but you could also pour it into small paper cups, set the cups in a baking tin, and freeze them. Or pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze like that. Some folks like to puree the peanut butter and honey with a banana (or meat-based baby food) before adding the yogurt.
I pop the containers in a microwave for about 10 seconds to soften them up slightly. My dogs like them. Of course if your dogs are sensitive to dairy products, you won't want to use these.
Daily Knitting Report:
Knitting projects are temporarily on hold while I frantically try to crochet a baby blanket by this weekend.
Oh, and I'm off later today to check out a new LYS! Stay tuned for further developments.
