Romeo turns 9!!!

Romeo enjoying Morril Off Leash Dog Park in Kent, Wa

Forgot too mention that my big old fluffy dod Romeo turned 9 on the 24th. He had a good day at Morill Meadows Off leash Dog Park in Kent, WA, the weekend before his birthday. Interesting dog park, about the same size as Lakeview, where our off leash park in Burien is supposed to go, with some good, inexpensive amenities that also are recycled.

Nice reuse for old tires
Super simple jumping gates made from Galvanized Elbows and 18" nipples
An example of a climbing apparatus for agility
And another!

 Romeo had a great day, the boys got to see a great park and we had some lunch, courtesy of a local eatery! I enjoy days like this one!

Peppermint planter

Spring is sprung! And so are new ideas for containers for planting! I like to re-use things in my garden like a peppermint tea tin to plant peppermint in....
Does anyone else have unusual planters in their gardens? Please Comment!

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Drool. I came across these from a Bacon Calendar I got for Christmas- These are super easy to make.

Bacon Cinnamon Rolls:
1 tube of Cinnamon rolls
8 slices of bacon

Separate and unroll one tube of cinnamon rolls, unrolling each cinnamon roll. Slightly precook bacon in the Microwave for 1-2 minutes (if you like your bacon well done.

 Lay one slice of bacon on top of each cinnamon roll and roll it back up pressing the dough together as needed. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until rolls are browned and bacon is completely cooked. Spread frosting from the cinnamon rolls package on top of rolls while still hot.

I went a bit crazy and thought, what if I use Nutella instead of the frosting... So.... I did!!! Even more wonderful!!!

Cove To Clover

It's just about time for the Annual Clove to Clover. Around these parts, this 5K Race plus a 1 mile "Wee" race for the little people is a sure sign of spring. And a sure sign that Burien folk are ready to get out and support many charities. Held on the 16th,the C2C was originally sponsored by a local Irish pub, organizer John Nelson had made it one of the go to and do events in our little city. And he is also very generous, offering the B-Town DOG group a Canopy at the finish line, to deliver information about our up and coming Dog Park here in the city. My only complaint, is that They use to offer "Angel" Sponsorships, which allowed me to be involved without having to run my fat ass all through town. But the old way was a hassle, and they still get sponsorships to the school district, allowing many kids to race for free! So a big thumbs up there. \
And if liquid sports are more your thing There is also Ye Ole Snake Crawl, A pub crawl were you can win prizes, on Friday the 14th, from 5pm (Registration)
So if you are not doing anything on Sunday, March 16, and feel a little energetic, Put on your running shoes and come on out to the Cove to Clover. There is a beer garden at the end! A great way to support local Charities!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter K9 Cookies

I have yet to see a dog not like these Oatmeal peanut butter cookies for Dogs. Slightly sweet, from the honey, my dogs go nuts for them. Very popular at our recent B-Town Dog Bake Sale, I cannot count how many have wanted the recipe.

Oatmeal Peanut Butter K9 Cookies 
½ cup of oatmeal
1 tablespoon of peanut butter
½ tablespoon of water
1 large egg
⅛ teaspoon of cinnamon
½ teaspoon of honey

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  It really does not matter what order you mix your ingredients together these are dog treats not a wedding cake. I personally started with the oatmeal and then mixed in the cinnamon. After the cinnamon I decided to drizzle in the honey and stirred it together. Then came the peanut butter which I also mixed in before adding the water and egg. I stirred the mixture together really well to ensure that all of the oatmeal was covered. Spoon drop cookies onto a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.  Bake for 20 minutes or until the bottoms are a golden brown.
