Saturday went to a child’s birthday party…

Happy to go, Happy to return

 As an official “Auntie” (and my less impressive “Uncle” title), I have certain responsibilities; and one of the biggest ones is birthday parties… So, Rob and I loaded up our two four-legged children and took a little drive out to the country to celebrate a wonderful birthday with our friends and their children; and accordingly, we spent the afternoon trying to make sure our children didn’t run off into the wilderness or eat the cake before our hostess could serve it. 

The boys always enjoy a car ride (they love to go—anywhere other than the vet); and since we went to a relatively new place (they’ve only been there one other time), they enjoyed a plethora of new smells and got to explore a little bit more in that environment. While Jesse (the yellow one) spent most of his time marking new territory and avoiding the children, Presley (our black child) enjoyed having access to a slip in slide with a sprinkler and licking chocolate icing off a toddler’s face (and yes, their personalities—like their fur colors—are like night and day).  All in all, we had a great time. 

But a great time which isn’t very conducive to creating, testing, and blogging about new dog treat recipes; so, I don’t have a new recipe for this week. And if any of you are wondering why I don’t just make one today (Sunday), I’ll have you know that I’m just far too distracted by the war of the humming birds going on outside our family room window to type much more anyway—and also, I have laundry to do, and we’ve got to take Rob’s car to get an oil change…and a half dozen other things that I haven’t even thought of yet. 

This whole full-time relationship/living together thing is really involved.

However, check back next weekend for a carrot-cake inspired treat which is almost certainly guaranteed to make you drool almost as much as your pouch!
