If you've been following along on Instagram, then you probably already know that we added another member to our family last October. The kids have been asking for a dog for YEARS, and we finally felt it was time to take on this new adventure together. We spent countless hours visiting shelters, meeting adorable dogs, and learning everything we could about being the best doggie parents. 

One day we met Cosmo, he sat so patiently and sweetly waiting to meet us, and we instantly knew it was meant to be! We learned about his sad history of abuse and were absolutely heartbroken for him. He got to come home with us and we have made it our mission to provide a safe and loving home for Cosmo since that day.

Cosmo is anxious, so he has to be handled with care. Making him homemade dog treats is one of the ways we show him that extra bit of love. Getting the kids involved in making dog food for the pup is a great way to help them take ownership for the furry family members, too. 

These dog biscuits are filled with the best ingredients for dogs. Peanut butter. Have you ever given a dog just a spoonful of peanut butter?! They love it, and it's hilarious to watch them lick and lick and lick. Oats are a great source of carbohydrates and fiber for dogs. We try to avoid flour and wheat for Cosmo because many dogs have a sensitivity towards that, so oats are a wonderful alternative.

Canned Pumpkin is a pantry staple in this house for the humans, and is now a staple for our best doggie, too. It is high in beta-carotene which converts to Vitamin A in the body. Pumpkin is also great for their digestive systems, helping to keep them regular if you catch my drift! 

Cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties that can help dogs with arthritis, and it's just a lovely smelling and tasting spice to add to your homemade dog treats! That's it. Just 4 ingredients go into these doggie bones to help you love on your furry friends. 

Tell me about your family dogs! What are their names, and what are their favorite treats?!

    After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: [email protected] or call him +2348105150446
    you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS’
