|Shhh we won't tell Ryan ;)|
was away. I will probably do one of those this weekend so keep your eyes out. I am sure though that you are looking at the title and wondering why is a book blog talking about dog treats. I will get to that. I will admit it that I am a bit of a crazy furry mom. When I started dating my boyfriend Ryan again (we dated back after high school, but remained friends for years) I joked that his dog Lily was my part time dog. PS we are going to not tell him about this picture of us from his step-brother's wedding in April on here. ;)
Lily is a mutt by definition, I can begin to describe what kind of dog she is other than she is a princess. For awhile it was just the two of them and then the evil step mother came into the picture and she had to share her father's attention. Now, I am sure that some of you are really starting to worry about my sanity after that statement, but she loves him more than anyone else.
|The day we got Leo, I call it "What is this and|
are we keeping it?"
|Leo, my cool dude :)|
Now, who doesn't have a dog that doesn't have awful breath? I get them the sticks to help with their teeth. I've found a few things on pinterest for dog breath mints. I didn't think anything about it because I've made Lily homemade dog treats before and she loved them. Leo just sees the jar of peanut butter and his eyes bug out. I made this dog mints for them. Leo was fine, but poor Lily she got sick. She threw up and everything. The poor thing curled up with me on the couch for the rest of the night until she felt better.
Ryan asked what was in the mints. I told him oats, an egg, and a few other things which included freshly chopped parsley and mint. Apparently parsley even a fresh ones are not good for dogs. It can cause dehydration, throwing up, and a few other things for most dogs. Mind you before you all start yelling at me, I used less than half a cup which was less than what the recipe asked for and I gave her a square that was half an inch. I felt horrible the whole night as she and I cuddled all night. She's my cuddle buddy in the winter. I just wanted to warn all of you dog lovers, despite all those recipes using parsley do not do it! I felt stupid about it since I normally look before give them anything. However learn from me!
