A Girl & Her Pups

DOGtober 2018: Day 1

Since the pups and I live in San Francisco we pretty much have sweater weather 24/7 with the rare sunny and hot days every now and again. Non the less rain, shine or fog we like to go out for walks and what better way to cool off from a long walk in the sun then a Pumpkin Spice Smoothie!

What you need:

  • 1 can pure pumpkin
  • 1 c plain geek yogurt
  • 1 Tsp. ground cinnamon

What to do:

  1. Pour the can of pumpkin into a blender along with your yogurt and mix until well combined.
  2. Add in your cinnamon and mix until you get a smooth and light consistency.
  3. Once its to the consistency of your desire serve to your pups!

The pups and I hope you enjoy it as much as they do, its a great way to cool them off and pumpkin has A LOT of great benefits for those furry friends of ours!

World Dog Surfing Championship review!

This was an AMAZING event! There were so many little puppy’s running around everywhere, so many booths handing out toys, bandanas, and treats! There was a booths where you spin to win, some gave out chapstick, and there was an agility booth!

There was also a ton of fun photo ops for those fury friends, you can put them on a surfboard or take a picture with the amazingly awesome surfer pups! It was a bit crowded and I am really glad my mom was able to go with me to help me with my littles. Tarzan, was very interested in the water and the pups playing in so we watched in the water while Belle hung back with my mom away from the water.

I definitely can not wait until next year to go back!

Walt Disney Pet Friendly Hotels!

October 15, 2017 was the start of a year trial where four Disney World hotels offered dogs to stay on Disney Property. Guests were allowed a maximum of two dogs per room where the pups would receive a Pluto’s Welcome Kit upon arrival. Unfortunately, the trial is ending this October, due to the fact that Disney has decided to make it a permanent offering starting October 2018.

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort $50/night

Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort $50/night

Disney’s Yacht Club Resort $75/night

Cabins at Disney’s Ft. Wilderness Resort $50/night

I can not tell you how EXCITED I am that this program is becoming a permanent offering at WDW, like I said before I absolutely LOVE,LOVE,LOVE this idea that I can bring my littles with me to WDW and of course to see other little puppers running around the resort will make that trip  extra special for me! What other WDW hotels would you like to see participating?

Grooming Routine!

Puppies are A LOT of fun, you get the cuddles, the love, the kisses and happiness from them. But they are also A LOT of work. You have to train them, take them to the vet, and well get them into a routine which includes grooming! My littles have never been to a groomers, I have groomed them myself their entire lives BUT we recently found the PERFECT grooming routine that works for all of us! It took a lot of trial and error until we got what works for us.

As you can tell my our schedule their teeth and their faces get cleaned everyday, while their nails and ears are done every other day. Belle is white so she gets dirtier a lot faster than my little guy Tarzan does so I give her a bath twice a week. Occasionally depending on what we are doing Tarzan will need a bath as well but thats rare, he’s a very clean little dude.

The trimming part happens twice a week, because with two pups its twice the work.This is what I found easiest for all of us and noticed that they are a lot calmer with the process. I tried to have everything done in one day Sunday was the designated grooming day BUT it was a lot to handle and we were all stressed which was not ok. So finally getting this routine and schedule together took the stress off of all of us. It was a ton of trial and error but I am so glad we have our set routine that works for all of us.What is your routine with your little puppers? I would love to know!

Perfect Paws: Alaskan Malamute

The Alaskan Malamute is one of the oldest sledge dog breeds of the Arctic. The Malamutes come from the Mahlemiut, an Inuit Tribe that settled in Kotzebue sound of the northwestern Alaska. The sledge dog were created to work in packs to haul heavy loads at low speeds over long distances.

Most Malamutes love to dig in the ground and typically don’t bark but they can be vocal. They became the official state dog of Alaska in 2010, thanks to a campaign started by a group of school children. They are energetic and need a lot of excersize, they also need to be groomed 2-3 times a week.

Happy Birthday Belle!

Today is my little Princess 6th birthday! I have to say she has been one of the best little puppers I have owned and these past 6 years with her as been an adventure. We went through low sugar, to a broken paw. Im hoping we don’t have anymore broken paws or bones because its not a fun experience.

She has made me laugh so much due to her being a klutz. She is also the best little cuddle bug ever, she gives the warmest hugs and snuggles. Happy Birthday Princess, thank you for being the best little pupper EVER!

25 Days of Christmas 2017: Day 24

Tomorrow is Christmas! So I thought it would be fun to share a short story/poem.

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring not even a mouse.

While the cookies were placed right next to the tree. These two littles had heard and scurried right out of their bed. 

They walked down their ramp and out to the hall where their eyes met old St. Nick’s cookies and nog.

As they ate and they drank to their tummies delight, we wish you a Merry Christmas and to all a good night.

We hope you enjoyed this fun little treat you can watch the video we made HERE! Merry Christmas Eve!

Winter Morning Routine: Puppy Edition

Winter is my all time favorite season, because its snuggle weather. This is how the pups and I get ready in the morning!

The alarm goes off at 5:45am. Im the first one up and immediately start the pups food and turn on the heater. I put water in the microwave for about 1min and 30sec than pour it over their food. In that time I do the pups hair, once their food is done they get to eat.

Once they are done eating, they go outside to do their business while I clean their water bowl and fill it up with fresh water and change their pee pad incase they used it. When they have finished outside, they come in and get their teeth brushed.

We than snuggle from about 6:30-6:45, the heater goes off and i’m off to work. This is the hardest part of my day is not snuggling with them the entire day. What are some of your favorite things you do with your pups in the morning during winter?
