I do dog tricks

This dog thinks she's so hot. Just because she can sit, roll over, down, stand, sing, dance, shake, fetch, play dead, etc. on command. What a show off!

I sit, stay and come for treats. What more do you want, I ask???

Veggie D'lites

My mom made up a batch of these yummy treats for me before Christmas. I really appreciated that they are low fat because I'm trying to keep my girly figure.

· 1 1/2 cup water
· 3 tablespoons corn oil

· 2 cups whole wheat flour
· 1 1/2 cups white flour
· 1/2 cup cornmeal
· 1/2 cup celery, diced fine
· 1/8 cup red bell peppers, diced fine
· 1/2 cup shredded carrots
· 1 clove minced garlic

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix water and oil. Add flour, cornmeal, vegetables and garlic. Knead dough for 2 to 3 minutes and roll into 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into 3- to 4-inch pieces. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies.

Waiting at the door

If you look closely at the picture above, you will see me sitting in the door waiting for my Mom & Nanny to come home (you can see them coming up the walk in the window reflection). Every time my mom goes out I wait there for her to come back and I am so happy to see her that it's like a happy reunion even if she's just been gone to the store for 20 minutes.

I don't know who misses who more!
