Award and Pumpkin Crunchies


Our friends Bridget, Dinah and their little bro Elliot were nice enough put this Sweet Friends award up for grabs for a few days ago. We decided to steal accept it!

The rules of this award are as follows:

1. Copy and paste to your blog
2. List 10 things that make us happy (We split this 5/5)
3. Select 10 bloggers that brighten our day (you all brighten our day please take this if you haven't received it yet!)

Okay the 10 things that make us happy are:


Bilbo's Top 5
1. Waking Mama up in the morning and making sure she gets out the door on time (plus gives me my treats!)
2. Sleeping
3. Making sure Mama and Daddy get all their evening chores done and to bed on time.
4. Sleeping
5. Pumpkin Crunchies!
Dory's Top 5
6. Walkies
7. Chasing Squirrellies
8. Squeaky Toys
9. Bye bye 
10. Pumpkin Crunchies!


A few of you asked what pumpkin crunchies were so Mama said we could share the very complicated recipe!
Pumpkin-crunchies

Take your evening crunchies (aka kibble, we eat a mix of Iam's mini chunks and ummm..."low fat" chunks) and add a heaping cup, OK MAMA, a heaping tablespoon of pureed canned pumpkin. Stir well and.....

Pumpkin-crunchies-mixed

Voila! Pumpkin Crunchies! 

Mama first started this in order to make Bilbo more "regular" with his poopies. Then she found me "taste testing" Bilbo's pumpkin crunchies and said I could have them every OTHER night!!!


WARNING: Pumpkin Crunchies can lead to:
Pumpkin-Nose

Pumpkin Nose AND:

Pumpkin-Face
Pumpkin Face!!!

I think 'Pumpkin Nose' and 'Pumpkin Face' are cute names, even without the crunchies.

I think I am going to have mom make pumpkin crunchie for me. I like pumpkin... especially when it is in the form of PIE...
I'm not a very good eater. Kind of picky. I might like this recipe though.
Bilbo looks sooooo cute with his face covered with pumpkin. Sort of a Bilbo-lantern.

Sunny said...

Bilbo is so cute with his pumpkin nose and beard. Those crunchies sound pretty yummy!
Hope your Mama is feeling better.

But if it tastes so good, then Pumpkin nose and Pumpkin face are so worth it. Mom has tried adding pumpkin to our kibble. I will eat it but the one who could really use it, Mr. Picky Boy, won't touch it:(

Woos, Thunder

So... Does Pumpkin cause constipation in a dog that is regular? We eat a lot of carrots around here and would probably like pumpkin in our food. We pups eat almost anything that we are given so far while the older dogs are a bit more picky.
