I Hear Ya Pups, Treats are Comin' + Cat-tip for the Day =^..^= Grooming Tools

There is never any shortage of help in my kitchen when I am baking dog biscuits. Sierra is such a trooper. What would I do without her? She will keep working while Kane and I take a break and go for a hike. I know she really likes dogs or she wouldn't be left alone in the kitchen for a second. Let me tell ya!

The last two days have been very busy with baking for Pampered Pups Pastries. Now that the nicer weather is here the orders are coming in fast and furious. More people out shopping and more dogs need treats. It is not easy spending the day inside baking when the sun is shining outside but Kane and I always take a long break mid-day and go for a hike. And since I'm in the kitchen anyways, might as well bake a treat or two for myself.

After the treats have been baked and cooled, they are bagged up in these little white bags and labelled as we have many different flavours. Then we add some ribbon, a business card and of course our 'Made in Canada' sticker. Orders are boxed up & then delivered by yours truly. It is really a one- man job with a little help from family. Lots of deliveries are made on my way to visit a cat that I am cat-sitting. Thinking of the environment and saving gas. Hope you enjoyed Earth Day and went somewhere special. Me.....I was baking.


If you want the perfect coat on your cat here are a few tools you will need.

1. Soft-bristle brush (brush at least twice a week)
2.Metal comb - the largest one you can find. This will loosen mats.
3.Flea-comb - this will help extract fleas while combing.
4.Dry shampoo- no water required.

A grooming mit is also very handy to help with the up-keep of your cat's coat.


  1. Wow, that is a great thing to do. Those treats look yummy. The bags are really nice too. Kane, you are very handsome.

  2. I need me some of those treats Deb...when can we meet girl?
    I made muffins yesterday too. Blueberry chocolate chip. I'm actually going to the store to get all my ingredients to make a batch of cookies for the pups. The've plum run out : (
    Love Claudie
