Merry Merry Woofmus! 2010 Pet Gift Exchange

Hosted by Kelly (kjpugs) and Hannah

I had so much fun participating in the Ornament Swap hosted by Laura a couple weeks ago.  Now Maximus and Brewster are swapping Christmas gifts with two cutie pie silky terriers from Florida.  

Max and Bru

Lindsey's pups, Jasper and Precious, are absolutely adorable.  I love that they have facial furniture (beards and dramatic eyebrows like Max...not like a table for facials at a health spa).  :)  Lindsey is taking a break from blogging so I'll be covering the exchange.  That's means there will be lots of doggy (and their toys/treats) photos in this post.  Lucky you!



Max sent Jasper a very cute Hide-A-Squirrels toy.  Click here if you need refill squirrels.  :)

The boxed toy wouldn't fit in my big mailing envelope so I flattened the box and tucked everything into a cello bag.  The box includes some tips like putting the squirrels in your laundry hamper so they'll pick up your scent.    That'll make your dog want to find them.  :)

Brewster sent Precious two toys after she tried to steal/hide them: a small Orbee-Tuff ball and a Slobber-Wick squeak buddy.  I recommend anything from Planet Dog because the toys last longer.


Another cello bag, some ribbon, and it's ready to go!

My pups also sent a little taste of Maine down to Jasper and Precious.  They really wanted to keep these Bite O' Blue grain-free blueberry dog treats.  :)

Max and Bru love all the gifts they received!  I tried to snap action photos of them running around and playing with their new toys but they're just blurs in all the photos like the puppy, Samson.  I'm sure that won't stop me from including a couple anyway.

Max instantly feel in love with this stuffed yellow platypus.  It makes a sound similar to a small stuffed duck toy he had before Bru came along.

Bru couldn't wait to take her new tough ball and lobster from Precious over to her favorite spot on the couch.  

Here they are playing with their new squeaky toys after they stopped running around the house chasing each other with them.  The photo quality is grainy because these were shot using the Action setting.

I've got to tell you that these homemade doggy cookies smell great and the packaging is so cute too!  Bru trips all over her clumsy self trying to figure out what she needs to do to get one.  Max caught a whiff and heeded immediately.  Too funny! Don't mind the weird blur on the right side of the next photo.  This is an old house but that's not a ghost.  It's Brewster trying to dive into the cookie pile...tongue first!

Some of the cookies are even monogrammed with their names.  How stinkin' cute are these?!

They'd like to inhale the cookies at once but I won't let them.  Bru's usually fussy about treats but these cookies caused record setting drool production!  Maybe if Max and Bru ask really nicely, Lindsey will share her doggy cookie recipe with us so I can pay it forward to you...
Thanks again to Lindsey, Precious, and Jasper!  :)

Merry Woofmas!

How fun! I bet all the doggies loved their new toys. The monogrammed dog treats are a fun idea.

Sorry for just getting around to reading this. :) I keep meaning to send you pictures I took of Precious and Jasper opening their gifts. (You'll have an email shortly.) Thank you again...they love all of their things and continuously play with them.

Anyways, here is the dog biscuit recipe. Very simple with few ingredients, but dogs love them. (Mine loved getting to eat the leftovers.) I used different shape cookie cutters I found to make most of them, and then I had a letter brander for meat when we grill, so I used the letters from that to personalize the heart dog biscuits.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Prep Time:
15 Min

Cook Time:
20 Min

Ready In:
35 Min

* 2 cups whole wheat flour
* 1 tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder
* 1 cup natural peanut butter
* 1 cup skim milk


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets. Stir together the flour and baking powder; set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the peanut butter and milk. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Place onto the prepared cookie sheets. (They don’t really expand in size, so you can place them close together - about ½” apart.)

3. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks.

So, what do you think? Don't be shy...we're all friends here. :) We love hearing from you and read every note you leave us!
