Just call him "DIGGER"

We had a load of mulch delivered. Timber thought the soft dirt was a great place to exercise his paws. I never knew a puppy could dig a hole so quickly!

The dog within...


He's the cutest puppy ever...

Not that I'm not biased or anything!

Timber has learned to sit and down. We are working on stand. He has a pretty good sit-stay - the best you can do with an attention span of an 11 week old puppy.


Homemade training treats

I've been doing some experimenting trying to come up with food and training treats for my dogs. Here are my dog's favorite training treats. Don Juan has always loved salmon. And these have just enough to entice him and keep him asking for more.

Salmon Snackers

You can divide this recipe in half. It makes a HUGE batch. Freeze any extras.

12 c. oatmeal
4 c. whole wheat flour
8 eggs with the shells
2 cans of salmon (drained)
3/4 c. olive oil
2/3 c. honey
1/2 c. molasses
1 can Meyenberg goats milk (add enough water or chicken broth to make 2 cups of liquid)
1 large can solid pack pumpkin
1 apple (chopped fine with skins on)

I will also add other fruits and veggies when I have them - Asparagus, Broccoli, Carrots, Collard, Cucumbers, Green Beans, Kale, Lettuce, Parsley, Spinach

Preheat oven to 325. Grease 2 cookie sheets

Dump everything into a VERY large bowl. Mix together. Pat onto greased cookie sheets & bake at 325° for 1 hour. After 1 hour turn oven off, crack oven door & allow cookies to cool in oven. Cut into squares when cool. You must refrigerate or freeze any extras.
