Dog Day: The Results Are In

A big THANK YOU to everyone who responded to my survey about what you like on the blog, what you could do without, and what you wish I’d add. I appreciate all the suggestions and can’t wait to implement them in the new year when the blog gets its new look (and will certainly get to the posts about my osteopenia regimen, plus more Flash in the Pan recipes, before then).

I’m sure The Girls are grateful, too, that they’ll be sticking around!

Excuse me, Mum, but we’ll be doing way more than just ‘sticking around.’  After all, it’s clear from the response that we are the true stars of the show.  Oh, and by the way, it looks like my water bowl needs refilling. Oh, and would you please get me one of those sweet potato treats?  You know, the ones that have been cut into french-fry shapes. . . and smear a little peanut butter on it, while you’re over there, would you?. . . . “

“Yeah!  Peanut butter!  And treats, lots of treats!  We’re STARS!  Oh, and yeah, Mum, why don’t YOU get your slippers for a change?  And maybe you could peel me a grape–“

“Zip it, Chaser.  You know dogs can’t eat grapes!  But come to think of it, that slipper idea wasn’t too bad. . . I’ll just lie here and relax while I wait for Mum. . .*sigh*. “

I’ll be back on Sunday with a favorite holiday recipe for Home for the Holidays (and yes, it involves chocolate!).  In the meantime, you can still enter the giveaway for one of two cookbooks, here.  😀

  1. Whew, I was hoping the girls would make the cut! 😉

  2. Ah, the girls … thank goodness they let you have some of the spotlight, Ricki! 😉 Love the “peel me a grape” line … that one gets used in our house occasionally. As in “sure, why don’t I peel you a grape while I’m at it” when one of us asks for too much. LOL

    Can’t wait for your Home for the Holidays entry, dear! I’m so very happy you are participating (and sponsoring, no less!). Our latest entry from Kelly–Peanut Butter Pie with Double Chocolate Crust–is up. I think you’ll like it! 🙂

    Looking forward to another fun and exciting year with you and the girls!

    • Aw, thanks, Shirley, you’re too sweet! I already spotted Kelly’s pie and posted on my DDD Facebook page. . . too yummy for words!

      And I’d say all three of us (okay, four, if we count the HH) are looking forward to lots more time together with you and all our other bloggie/doggie friends! 😀

  3. Love it!!!!! Marley wants to move in with you. She’s fat and doesn’t get treats here : )

  4. Yah!!! Too cute, glad the girls are back. Oh and I LOVE flash in the pan. Yes please on more of that segment 🙂

  5. I love the girls 🙂

  6. I would have to boycott if the girls left. Or suggest they start a spin-off blog.

  7. Love furry friends and your dogs are adorable! Looking forward with anticipation to hearing how you increased your bone mass naturally!

  8. Every time you post pictures of the girls I want to hug them. LOL Maybe I need a furty pet 😉
