Made with Love: Pumpkin-pork treats

After watching episode after episode of Cupcake Wars (yap, she indulges in trashy shows), Mummy developed an itch for baking.  So, naturally, that means more home made goodies for us! Wheeeeee~ #godblesstrashyrealitytv Introducing our very own Dog-friendly Pumpkin Pork Cookies! And trust us, it is outta the world! #lickspawsinsatisfaction  What you need: This makes about 80 cookies! (Yap, Mummy’s trying to kill us with cookies. But hey, we ain’t complaining.) 3 cups of wheat flour (replace this with a grain-free flour if your dog is prone to allergies) 1 egg 300g of lean pork One half of a pumpkin 2 tablespoons of parsley 1 tablespoon of coconut oil  Do keep some water and excess flour on hand too. And we shall not forget the most important tool of the day – dog-shaped cookie cutters from Muji! What to do: 1. Preheat oven to 175 Degree Celsius. 2. Cut both the pumpkin and lean pork meat into slices and boil till soft and cooked. 3. Blend the mixture into puree form. 4. Pour the puree, flour, …

Made with Love – Desserts!

Mummy brought home some leftover dog-friendly food from a work shoot today.  And with some tips from Auntie Gwen, Mummy decided to spice it up for us! Using just some greek yoghurt, Mummy turned the leftovers into a yummy Greek Yoghurt Sweet potato, apple dessert, with cranberry toppings. Looking good! As usual, I wasn’t too pleased with the long photo-taking. #attitudesam And boy, it sure was delicious!  This is the best kind of food. Not only does it taste yummy, it is actually healthy! Yoghurt is actually good for our little tummies while cranberries are beneficial for our urinary tracts. #winwinsituation # We were rather disappointed after licking our bowls sparkling clean to learn that Mummy wasn’t gonna give us second helpings. WHY~~~~ And even our best begging faces failed to work their magic. On a good note, Mummy did cut up the leftovers of the leftovers, place them into several ice cube trays, pour yoghurt to fill them up and send them to freeze in the freezer.  For a rainy day she says. #PUI …

Made with Love – Dehydrated treats!!

The weekends came and left… but we ain’t complaining…because, Mummy spent it making yummy dehydrated treats for the two of us! (Hehe, and there are plenty of leftovers for the whole week!) Anyway, we were extremely excited when Mummy told us what she had installed for us! To begin with, she started by swinging by the supermarket to buy some fresh meat, which includes chicken gizzards, lean pork, sliced chicken fillet, pork and chicken liver! She took some time out to slice them evenly.  The lean pork and liver sliced easily! But Mummy had a little trouble slicing up the chicken fillet the previous time, so she decided to get pre-sliced ones instead. They are a little thicker, thus require a longer time to dehydrate.  Anyway, a tip from my mother-in-law, Auntie Charmaine: freezing the meat slightly will make it easier and firmer to slice! Once the prep work was done, Mummy simply put the trays in position and got the dehydrator working! Mummy got the Open Country Pet treat maker from Amazon when we …

Sam’s Day Out – Happenstance Cafe

It’s been a while since we had a Sam’s day out! For a change, my parents decided to leave Pecan ah ma at home and spend a long nice day with me. Yap, just me! Hooooray~ Of course we had to take the opportunity to visit a new Sam-welcomed venue, the Happenstance cafe! This time round, we also asked a special guest and his family to join us for our brunch quest! (You’ll find out who shortly!) We arrived seconds before opening hours, so we had to hang around the fence for a while. And when the doors opened, I couldn’t wait to explore the cafe! Located along Opal Crescent, it’s hard to believe from the outside that this is actually a pet-friendly cafe. For a change, rather than the typical washed-out/Ikea-ish decor that many pet cafes have, Happenstance has a clean industrial vibe that is up Mummy’s alley. (She couldn’t stop staring at the brick wall -_-) It could easy pass off one of the up-and-coming cafe that the hipster crowd would love. A …

Tiny apples

Auntie Lynne is a super darling!  Because…. she bought us two smallie apples!!!! It was the first time we ever saw apples that were this small! Mummy was really amused while we were just a little unsure. I mean the apples are so tiny that we didn’t even think it was real! On the contrary, we actually mistook our apple stuffie for being the real thing. #stupidJRTs Since I’ve always been Auntie Lynne’s favorite dog, I thought I could get my way and claim ownership of both the apples. HEHEHE. Of course, my ‘fantasy’ did not last long.  At all. Within seconds, Pecan has creeped beside me and successfully took one from me. BOOOOOOO~ #mylifesucks Oh well, at least I still have one all to myself. We were really fascinated by the smallie apples! They are so small that they were almost the same size as Pecan’s paws! I swear that I could also gobble down the whole thing in just one bite! I wasn’t convinced that it was the real thing at all and …

Sam’s Pick – Feed My Paws Treats~

When Auntie Crystle from Feed My Paws dropped us an email asking if we were keen to review her handmade treats, we just couldn’t say no! I mean, who in the right mind would say no to anything edible?! Not us for sure… She was really awesome and asked us to pick whatever we wanted. So, we spent the entire evening glancing through the website (drooling while doing so) and pointed at EVERY SINGLE ITEM. Seeing how greedy we were, Mummy sighed and proceeded to let Auntie Crystle decide what she wants us to try. Booooooooooo~ Mummy sucks! As we don’t have any allergies and would eat anything that comes our way, Auntie Crystle offered to let us sample some of her bestsellers. (Fret not if you suffer from any food allergies as you can customize your very own treats using ingredients that you can eat!) And when the treats arrived at home, we could not believe our eyes! There were so many yummy looking snacks JUST FOR US!!! *Wriggly dance* #soimpressed We were so …
