Vulpe’s 3rd Birthday

Life tossed us hither and thither quite a bit in late 2014. But we ended up in a nice little house with a honking big garden. I knew when I saw it that Vulpe would definitely appreciate the space, particularly as she’s very ~troubled~ and doesn’t get the off-lead playtime I’d ideally like her to…

Much Canine Carousing, 2014

Dear readers, though my dear and wonderful little Vulpe is a Romanian street dog of no known date of birth, when we went to collect her from the rescue organisation on 2nd September 2012 at around 4 months old, we decided that 2nd May would be her birthday from then on. When she was 1,…

Sweet Potato Treats

It’s been a tremendously fun day of making treats for the pooch today! As well as attempting some homemade food (still simmering away in the slow cooker) I baked these easy to make sweet potato treats. I took a particularly generously sized sweet potato and sliced as many slices as possible, as thin as I…
