July 10 Oz History & Canine furbaby food. Woof

Nothing, just felt like saying it.
Got a great dog food recipe happening cos the furbaby had been moping more and more since the old girl Tara died aged 20.
I didn't blog about it cos it sad and painful and like losing my Dad all over again.
And she was my last link to my Mum, too.
We noticed that Treacle was moping more and more to the point, recently, where she wasn't eating much of her food.
I began looking online to find a recipe and combined a few pet-friendly and doggie preferred foodstuffs into a mini cake which she lurves.
Dog Cakes
  • Boil up soup mix (lentils, beans, etc) til cooked, drain and cool.
  • Vitamise and throw in a dessertspoon each of apple sauce and peanut butter (smooth or crunchy, makes no diff cos it's all gonna be vitamised) and vitamise.
  • Mix with self raising flour, spoon into cake pans and bake in moderate oven for approx. 40 mins.
  • Let cool on cake rack, then slice up if too big for your furbaby.
  • Store in air-tight container.
They seem to have tweaked her appetite again and she's nomming on the stuffs she's supposed to nom on.
Oh, and she's liking her porridge for brekkie with a spoonful of yoghurt stirred in.
Blueberry is her favourite, so far...

Let's get this over and done with, shall we?
1858 and the Melbourne Football Club was formed on this date *cough, gag* Swans forever.
1840 The (almost) French Convict Settlement on the South Island of NZ was ceded to the fact that the British had already claimed the plot of land. More HERE.
1907 The trunk telephone line between Melbourne and Sydney opened on this day...and that's when husbands learned to loathe the STD rates.
STD =Subscriber Trunk Dialling not The Clap from the local knock shop.

Go read about Our Honeymoon Railway of 1912.


  1. Aww sorry you lost your old doggie. *sad face* What a grand age to live too. Big hug!

    Keep up the great blog Jayne love it!

  2. Thanks, Liz, she was a grand old girl.
    Thanks, too, on the kind words :)

  3. awww sorry to read about Tara. That recipe is pretty good too, what a great idea. Hmmm our smooch would feel hard done by that we don't do anything like that for her. Just caught up on the last ten posts eeeeks. Any hoo how was that coconut oil on the head, did you notice a difference. And yum at your dim sim recipe I am going to have to give that a go.Funnily enough I know who Mia is due to an article in our news today about the mag that she used to edit, had a model comp and she was saying she stopped the comp while she was editor because she felt it wasn't approriate. And go Oscar Pistorius, I think its awesome.

  4. Oh dear, I must read more closely. Not a dog recipe but a dog food recipe.

  5. Cakes and blueberry yoghurt?
    Treacle must be part human.
    Next thing you know, she'll be sitting up at the table saying please and thank you.
    Good doggie.

  6. Ahh, yes, Mia gets around, Janine lol.

  7. Not nomming on Rover, Andrew, feeding them like kings and queens ;)

  8. She doesn't aspire to lower her standards to be human, River, but she does share our tastes ;)

  9. Sorry about your old doggie - they're a hugely important part of the family, aren't they? Like the house's furry heartbeat.

    I'll definitely try the doggy cake recipe for Milly.

  11. That's it perfectly, Kath, the furry heartbeat.

  12. Oh, thank you, Merron!
    I appreciate that, how lovely :)

  13. Do you ever take time off from eating?
    I believe I know what a Fur Baby is now, would be either a dog or a pussey, right.
