Buried in popcorn.

Corrin | A Day in The Life,Toys & Treats | Wednesday, 01 August 2012

Ollie is usually pretty sneaky about his snack stealing, but he just couldn’t resist the butter at the bottom of this bowl of popcorn, so he dove in head first.

And don’t think for a second that I didn’t finish that popcorn just because Ollie was ears deep in the bowl.

Hot Dog. Cool Treat.

Corrin | A Day in The Life,Toys & Treats | Wednesday, 25 July 2012

With the temperatures hovering around 100 for oh, six months out of the year, Ollie needs a cool treat  to enjoy just like the rest of us. Since I’m sick of paying $5 for a package of frozen dog treats with mystery ingredients at the grocery, I whipped up my own version of this doggy fro-yo recipe.

Ollie overseeing preparations.

I’ll be honest; Ollie wasn’t loving it at first (I’ve heard other dachshund owners say their pups snubs new treats, too), but after a long walk on a hot day, he devoured a cup. Now he knows there’s a treat in store whenever I open the freezer.

Doggy Fro-Yo

Makes 12 treats

  • 2 cups Greek yogurt
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 12 Dixie cups

Combine, blend, freeze, and share with your pup.

Cheap Entertainment

Corrin | A Day in The Life | Friday, 06 July 2012

It’s kind of amazing what will keep a 12 pound wiener dog entertained for an hour.

But for the record, we kind of created a monster with the pop-bottle-as-toy game. Ollie now stares us down every time we have a bottle of any sort in our hands. Does your pet get a kick our of playing with something random from around the house?

Birthday Month!

Corrin | A Day in The Life | Wednesday, 27 June 2012

I may have made a grave oversight.

For years, we’ve been celebrating Ollie’s birthday in July. Out of curiosity, I checked his AKC paperwork last week…and his birthday is really June 15th.

But to make up for it, we’ve been celebrating Ollie’s 6th birthday the entire last half of the month! I think that’s a fair trade.

Ice cream comes, swimming at the park, naps, and milkshakes.

Hashtag

Corrin | A Day in The Life | Friday, 22 June 2012

Psssst. Did you know that Ollie has his own Twitter hashtag? That’s right. You can follow #Ollieisadog for the latest in Ollie antics.

Like the time I heard a kerfuffle in the closet and found Ollie covered in baby powder.

The fun never ends.
