After a long and busy summer break. I am wanting to set a goal for myself to keep up with this blog and its content. It might be a while before I make a habit out of it but I am hoping to improve my writing skills. The posts/topics will be the same. Pet related content for central area Texans.
Blogging has been a great experience for me. It has sparked new ideas and topics for me. To discover and write about from a single idea of what I want this blog to be about. I want to keep up with this blog; to have a outlet to take a break and write. Even though creating a habit to post and write up something can be a challenge when life comes busy. I will do the best as I can.
FDOM was a interesting class to take. It opened up my mind to why its important to take advantage of social media and have it benefit me for my career and professional profile. I hope to improve my writing skills, learn how to write code and HTML. On behalf of some students or all, I myself can agree that this course can be taken online. The course content: slides, videos etc will still be apart of the class but not having a physical lecture.
This spring semester has been enjoyable and creating this furbaby/pet owner blog has been a fun. This has been the most creative assignment that I have received to date.
Owning 5 dogs takes up a day worth of bathing and shampoo. When I run out of doggie shampoo, I usually make a quick run to the kitchen sink to get DAWN. If its safe for washing away oil from birds off the gulf it should be good for my mud soaked pup, right?
Anyways, I found a quick DIY tutorial to make pup friendly shampoo for bath time. I just love how quick it is and how simple the ingredients are! Another great reason is that college students can save a few dollars by making this shampoo. Who doesn’t love saving money??
DIY Natural dog shampoo
This is a great sunday project; can’t wait to try it out on my dogs!
We all have heard some sort of Pit-bull story, good or bad, in the media. Usually, just passing over and not getting a second chance to think or research the topic. Laws and legislations are taking place to ban the Pit-bull breed. Here are some news stories that I collected that portray the bad side of Pit-bulls but the goodness of this breed really is.
Dog snacks and treats can be filled with unhealthy additives and ingredients for your pet. Scrolling though the internet one day I came across this site, The Novice Chief, with cute and easy recipe for your puppy.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
In a stand mixer, combine all ingredients (peanut butter, egg, honey, oats, flour, oil and water), beating until a stiff dough forms.
Pat out dough into a rectangle, about 1 inch in depth. Using a bone shaped cookie cutter, cut into bones. Use all dough.
Bake for 30 minutes, flipping half way through. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
Melt almond bark and oil in the microwave, stirring every 30 seconds. Once melted/smooth, dip half of bone into almond bark and lay on parchment paper. Decorate with sprinkles or chopped peanuts and let cool completely.
Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
I love how you can decorate them and they are a great gift idea for any pet owner.
