Shopping Around the World on Jakey's 10th Barkday!!!

Happy 10th Barkday  to Jakey,  the strong silent middle boy here at Dory's Backyard !!!

 To help celebrate, and take part in Phenny's Shopping Around the World,  I thought I would make a nice  Pumpkin Crunchy Pie for dessert!!  It's very easy to make, you may remember Bilbo's basic Pumpkin Crunchy Recipe(click Here to transport). This is basically the same recipe with nommy yogurt topping!!

Here's what you need:
  • Your favorite kibble(we eat Blue's Life Protection) - about $1.75 cents a serving (1.64 EUR)
  • 1 tablespoonspoon or so of canned pumpkin(make sure it's 100% pure pumpkin not the pumpkin pie filling) - $1.97 a can
    (1.84 EUR)
  • 1 tablespoon or so of plain yogurt(we used greek yogurt) - $1.47 container(1.38EUR)

 Here's how you make it!
 Add one tablespoon of Pumpkin to the kibble

 Ask your assistant for a bit of help stirring things up
A-hem...Mama, do you mind??

 Make sure you mix it well and coat every piece of kibble for maximum nomminess!

 Make sure to give it a taste to make sure there is enough pumpkin mixed in the kibble. Pumpkin is good for us pups, so make sure your assistant doesn't try to skimp on it.

 To complete this nommy dish, add a dollup of delicious AND nutritious plain yogurt!

 Mmmmmmmmm, just smell that deliciousness!!!

 Now a little taste..and it's all ready for the Birthday Boy!!

 I suppose not everyfurry can be a foodie like me!

Tomorrow we'll show you how Jakey celebrated his special day!

We got all the tests results back, and the dogturs are still not sure what is wrong with Dory. We do know she doesn't have Cushing's disease, and the dogtur is trying to figure out exactly what is wrong. I will let you know she isn't doing well. She is not in pain though, she is sleeping most of the time but does still gets up for dinner and cookie time. Right now, we are living each day with her to the fullest and working with the dogtur to keep Dory comfy.

 I am going to start keeping our blog more lighthearted in order to keep me focused on the good and living each day with my BFF to the fullest.
Thanks again for all of your POTP and again, it's hard to put into words just how much your friendships mean to us.

Happy Barkday Jakey!!!!!

We are sending healing purrs and the power of the paw to Dory. And comforting purrs to everyone, may you enjoy each second of the time you have together, as they are all so very precious.

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Is it possible that Dory got bitten by a tick? we remember another dog a few years back that get bit by a tick and was tired all the time and the veterinarians had a very hard time figuring out what was wrong. Sorry we can't remember the name of the blog or how to get in touch with them for more info.

We sure hope Dory gets better soon. POTP + Healing purrs

Marg said...

Happy Birthday Jakey, That pumpkin mix looks so yummy. Dory, we sure are keeping out paws crossed for you. We so hope you feel better soon. Take care.

Sandra said...

thank you so much for this cruncy idea. I missed that post back in 2010, did not know ou then. I feed Jake his canned pumpkin by giving him blobs on the end of my finger and it slurps all over the kitchen. from now on it will go in his dinner like this, we put his glucosamine in, now we will add punkin. I am glad Dory doesn't have the Cushings but sorry we still do not know... Happy Birthday Jakey from Jakey

Well, now let's see. We get a dollop of yogurt in our breakfast kibble and a dollop of pumpkin in our dinner kibble. So if we can just get Mom to put them together we can have some birthday pie to!!! Happy Birthday, Jakey. And please tell Dory we are pulling for her. Good that it is NOT Cushing's, but it would be nice to know what she is dealing with. All paws continue to be crossed.
