Barkworld 2013!

This is Sarah Allen reporting live from Barkworld 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia! This year instead of Ma, Carma and I coming we brought a guest. Scooby Doo! Well, so far everyone adores him and he hasn’t been an ounce of trouble. I’ve taken him everywhere with me in a baby sling (He climbs in there himself and straps himself in!) and he’s LOVING it. Oh my goodness. I actually broke down and created him a twitter. He’s going to have an instagram as soon as my phone charges too. Follow him @street_smartdoo and see the cute little underbite daily! More will be posted later on.

I’m going to head to bed so I can wake up and go to Doga (Doggy Yoga) in the morning! I hope you all had a great day!

Cool frozen treat for Dogs!

Since Jenny Sue and I are on a health kick i wanted to make something for her that she can lick on. She LOOOOVVVEEESSSS ice cream and since its summer i figured why not make her some? Except this is a little different.
Things youll need:
Honest Kitchen Instant Goat Milk
Warm water
Beef or chicken base/flavoring
Diced apple
A cup to place in the freezer.

First, take the cup and fill it with warm water then add your packet of Honest Kitchen Goat Milk and stir till dissolved.
Next, take a itty bitty piece of flavoring and stir it in.
After that, take your diced apple and throw it in there.
Set in in the freezer for about 1-2 hours then serve!

Do you have any more recipes? What kind of treats do your furpal’s love? Feel free to comment!

Bad Blogger Blues and New Diet?

Hello all! Im really really sorry i havent posted in the longest time! I got a new phone, ive been working out and ive been at Marching band for the longest time. Its about time i jump back into blogging.

Anyways, about this new diet-
Ive changed my diet completely, and its done wonders for me! I eat nothing but fruits, veggies and dairy and nuts. (Which is what i crave half the time anyways)
However, i have a diet buddy. Its the cutest little blind spaniel named Jenny Sue. Jenny Sue came into my life on New Years right before i turned 5. She was 6 weeks old and she picked us out. We’ve been best friends ever since. When we were little we’d go on walks around the block, we’d play dress up (she stole all my doll clothes and some of my toys too) we’d swim and wed eat fruit together, with the occasional baby food. Well, Jenny Sue other than eating with me ate nothing but Moist and Meaty Dog Food and weve had to recently take her off of it because its doing her more harm than good.
Well shes on my diet, and whatever dogs cant eat, i dont eat. Every other night i sit on the floor with her and slice up an apple and peanut butter and i make her a bowl of Honest Kitchen Instant Goat Milk. It makes her so happy that we play fetch for an hour or 2. (Yes, my blind sister plays fetch)
So far, this has done wonders for both of us. Ive lost weight and its improved her energy and she hasnt shed as bad lately. Shes 10 going on 11 so youd expect a few health problems but other than being blind, shes a pretty healthly little girl. She enjoys eating and playing with me, and we even go swimming together.
Do you have your pet on a special diet? If so, how is it going and what is it for?

By the way this is Jenny Sue rocking the bedhead look BOL!

His Story

Meet Dozer the Red Nose Pit Bull. A sweet, cuddly, loving, cute, intelligent, well behaved, kissable, huggable, squeezable, and understanding little boy. He’s 10 years old and he’s adoptable from the Owensboro Humane Society! Although he’s considered a senior he still acts like a 6 month old puppy. He loves playing dress up and gives the best hugs and kisses a pit can supply!
Back in 2006 he was chasing down the UPS man while he was delivering packages and when he turned around Dozer was sitting in his truck like “Where we gonna go? Huh? Huh?!” Well the UPS man brought him to Wills Animal Clinic and no one had claimed him so, he was brought to us.
I have to admit, I was rather scared of Dozer when I first met him. He just paced back and forth in his cage and every now and then looked up. I didn’t know if he was territorial or just flat out going to bite me if I tried to pet him. He’d get right up against the wall of the cage whenever i’d pass through and I would run through just to avoid any accidents.
I kind of avoided him until Ma reassured me that he was sweet and wouldn’t bite me so one day when Ma & I was walking the field passing out treats I held my hand out and Dozer sat down and put his head down. From that very first pet he’s been my best friend.
He has recognized and memorized both my car and truck and throws a hissy fit if I don’t immediately come and see him. LOL! Pits as we know have a bad rep, but you know, if you tell Dozer to “Attack” he’ll jump up on you and just kiss you to death. He’s learned all of his basic commands and more such as “Strike a pose” “Show your sweet side” and many more (photos will be posted at the end)
Although he is very sweet and very friendly he still needs some work, he doesn’t like cats and is iffy with dogs. Ma and I plan on working with him more and breaking him of it. Heck if we can teach an old dog new tricks I’m pretty sure we can teach him to love everything.
He LOVES going on long walks and runs! We go walking around Thompson Berry Park all the time and you know, we have talks and he understands how I feel and what I’m saying. I’ve talked to him about how much I miss Zen and was on the verge of tears he sat down put his paw on me so I sat down with him. He laid up against me and literally kissed away my tears. I love him to death and I wish Ma would let me adopt him.
In fact when Zen went missing we had a search party. I grabbed him and we walked 6 miles placing missing signs all over the neighborhood and asked residents if they had seen him. Zen knew Dozer pretty well and Dozer would leave his scent everywhere helping lead Zen back to the Humane Society. He still listened to me then too. I believe if I had went alone I would have just lost it and have to call someone to pick me up.
Dogs have a healing power mentally physically and spiritually & Dozer has helped just as I have helped him.
I hope to find him a great home for him to live out his days. He’s 70+ years old in dog years and is ready to retire.
Please open your hearts an consider adopting this big ol’ lug. If you cannot, please share him.

Help! I’ve fallen in love and I can’t get up!

Imagine this-
One day you’re out and about and you see your local humane society or shelter having an adoption event and they have animals or pictures setting out. You see the cutest little cat or dog but you know you can’t have them yet you want to help them. What can you do to help?
There are a couple different ways to help out in the animal community!
1. Donate! Every cent can make a difference, every pound of food can help, every little thing you donate can help a shelter/HS in a HUGE way! I personally had a donation drive on my 16th birthday. I raised a little over 600 dollars and got lots of food paper towels liter collers treats toys etc. Although I wish I could have raised more it still helped out the Owensboro Humane Society and my friends had a lot of fun!

2. Sponsor a pet! Ask them if they have a sponsoring program. You can give weekly monthly or yearly! say you want to give 10 dollars a month to a furbaby in need, that 10 dollars can help get them food pay vet bills and much more. Its kinda like a little bank account for each animal.

3. Volunteer!!! Most shelters/hs are in need of volunteers year round! Whether you’re cleaning a cat box or giving a belly rub it helps out. Volunteering is rewarding all in all. You know you’re doing a good thing & its fun! I’ve been volunteering with the Owensboro Humane Society for 3 years as of March and although its had its ups and downs I regret nothing. (Well maybe not adopting a cat or two but they have great homes now)

If you don’t have enough time to volunteer every now and then you can always visit the facilities and look around.
