Cookie monster with spots

my Cici can be pretty picky about her cookies. especially healthy ones. a  month or so ago, we were at a fair nearby Whole Foods and a local gal had a table. She baked her own dog biscuits and was giving out free samples. We chatted and i gave Cici a biscuit to try. She would not eat it. I tried again and still, she was not biting into those peanut butter and something cookies. I figured well, she just does not like peanut butter all that much. She’s more of a meat eating gal. Kind of embarrassing though.

Yesterday, we were at Whole Foods and these kind people there took Cici for a walk and gave her some dog treats of the non-healthy kind. She loved the dog bone shaped cookies while I worried about her eating them. I am currently giving her a special kind of SPIRULINA to counteract all of the bumps, cysts and growths that have recently developed all over her body. A vet wanted to surgically remove them but I prefer a more holistic method, hence the BIOPREP. More about this in a later blog post. Suffice it to say here, Cici has some health issues that we are addressing and that the Bioprep worked a few years ago to eliminate a growth on her toe.

well, NO SUCH PROBLEM with Austin and Kat CBD infused Wellness Dog Biscuits Peanut Butter and Apple. Cici has scarfed up these cookies with all of the enthusiasm of a happy cookie monster doggie. She thinks they are very tasty and I love that they are good for her.  shhhhhh, do not tell her that they are good for her.

HOW CLEVER to pack a wellness punch into a doggie bite-sized snack. With no eggs, dairy, gluten or preservatives, these cookies offer oatmeal, coconut oil (CICI LOVES COCONUT OIL) and turmeric, a great anti-inflammatory and digestive aid. The organic, cold-pressed CBD Hemp oil is also an anti-inflammatory plus it supplies all of the good Omega 3, 6, 9 oils that doggies need.

And then there is cinnamon, maple, molasses, flax seed, probiotics, along with the oatmeal, apples and peanut butter. What a blend of goodness. No wheat or corn flour either, oat and rice flour and almond meal to hold these yummy for the tummy goodies all together.

i have rarely, if ever, seen my dog eat up cookies that were labeled healthy in any way like she has eaten these. She just doesn’t seem to enjoy the others but she is a big fan of Austin and Kat’s cookies and wishes there were an unlimited supply for her to eat.

And here’s the kicker, initially, Kat, the creator baker of these sweet things initially made these cookies for her senior doggie, Brady. And Cici is no spring chicken at the ripe old age of 10 herself. Kat also has a puppy named Austin who has enjoyed the health benefits of these snacks, too. Read all about their journey in Maine here.

And what are you waiting for, go get your doggies some treats. OK, Halloween is over but that’s ok. Now, it is time for some goodies for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Make great paw stocking stuffers. Be sure to tell Austin and Kat we sent you.

pumpkins and costumes and desserts, oh my

who else but Rachael Ray would have a pumpkin carved with her dog’s face on it???

some people are saying that wearing an Occupy Wall Street related costumes are THE cool costumes this Halloween…  people could dress up as a mean cop, banker, a corporation, a 1% greedy pig, clueless GOP politician, a cash cow and/or a protester…

http://theweek.com/article/slideshow/220443

Cici wanted me to let you know about the messages that she is considering to have on her signs for her costume:

I am the 1% of pit bulls that has a good home

walk a few miles in my paws…

humans judge me by my looks

sub-humans abandon, abuse, fight, and neglect me

sub-humans kill me

humans hate me because I’m adorable

humans say mean things about me

humans lie about me

sub-humans use me to pretend they are tough

pit bulls for peace

pit bulls against  fat cats

cici speaks: occupy the bed, gets better food than my mama, occupy the chair, occupy the fridge, hah !

Beware of these dogs, trick or treat…

a fun treat for any doggie snack time are these meaty cupcakes… for Halloween and other fall/autumn holidays, you could substitute sweet potatoes for the regular taters…
