I am honored to be in the company of my good friend Christina of The Everyday Dog Mom to be hosting a monthly photo challenge for 2018! Photography isn’t my strong suit, so now’s the time to improve and play around with themed pictures. This is the first time I’ve done anything like this, so please bare with me. Appreciate the Moments photo challenge is a blog hop, and all dog/cat moms and dads are welcome to join. You’ll find the linky code at the bottom of the post, and I hope you like my photos!
My most popular treat recipe, DIY doggy cupcakes, inspired me to create a different mini version. I was prompted to do so because all three of my dogs are 15lbs or less, so I have to cut the regular size cupcakes. Mini cupcakes are a great option for small dogs but also for bigger dogs who don’t necessarily need a large treat. I made these delicious DIY mini doggy cupcakes themed for Christmas, but you can change it up for any holiday or celebration. Enjoy!
With much enthusiasm and less hesitancy than I planned, I can now say I’m the mom to six animals! I have three dogs and three cats. Recently I adopted a new Siamese kitten named Leila. For months Matt and I had been wanting to add a kitten to the family. Why a kitten and not an adult cat? Well Sadie, our six year old Calico, was having some issues with anxiety from moving into our new home. While her anxiety did get better, Matt and I still felt like having a kitten to look after would help Sadie a lot. She’s a very motherly, nurturing cat. I was finally ready to bring another feline into the home after my loss of Edison in 2013.
Initially I had this idea of how introductions would go once I brought the kitten home. I thought I knew which animals would act certain ways but boy was I wrong. I was so. wrong.
