Captain's Thanksgiving Holiday 2012

Our recap of Thanksgiving 2012! Captain has been one spoiled little boy these past few days... an aunt and uncle and grandmommy around to give him plenty of extra cuddles, a mommy who thinks he should get all the turkey leftovers he wants, and plenty of good running weather to work out all that Vizsla energy. Plus, did we mention turkey leftovers? ;-)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from Captain to you!!

Here's what's on tap for our Thanksgiving:
1- A Turkey Trot at Point Pinole (I'm doing the 10K, the rest of the fam is doing the 5K... Captain will be joining in too!)
2- Coming home to eat the best pumpkin bread in the world ;-), and probably watching a little of the parade.
3- Getting to baking & cooking! Captain will be thankful for whatever falls on the floor, and for his mommy's weak willpower when it comes to his staredowns ;-)

Captain is also thankful for: more people in the house to cuddle with, couches, beds, covers and quilts, sweet potatoes, frosty paws, slow squirrels, and everyone stopping by to Vizsla Thing!

Hope you all have a wonderful day filled with family, friends, and enjoying time with your dog!!

Check back soon for a holiday recap and for favorite pictures submitted from the giveaway.

Homemade Dog Treats

First- thanks again to everyone who left comments and pictures as part of the giveaway. We really loved reading all the comments, and seeing the pictures- I'll be doing a post soon with highlights! While unfortunately not everyone can be the giveaway winner, at least we all can enjoy some treats!

I'd been wanting to make Captain some homemade biscuits for a while, and finally got around to it when I had some leftover canned pumpkin and fresh herbs that needed to get used up. Captain is used to getting homemade frosty paws, but biscuits were a first! Read on for a few different homemade treat recipes (including frosty paws!), all of which are incredibly easy to make. We're talking minimal time & effort, so you can quickly get back to running around with your active Vizsla :)

Ruffwear Running Leash Giveaway!

We're pretty excited to share this post with everyone: our first giveaway! Captain is doing the wiggle-butt just thinking about it. When my husband first suggested I start a blog after we got Captain, I never thought I would get so into it. But I love feeling like we have a little (or big!) Vizsla community; the camaraderie that comes from the love of these dogs, and from sharing fun pictures and stories. I am so grateful for enthusiastic readers who stop by to check out our lil 'ole blog here, who leave Facebook comments and 'likes', and who enjoy Captain's adventures as much as I do. So I wanted to give something as a "Thank you!" to all you out there!
