From Winter Coats, Sunshine to Umbrellas..

In the past few weeks we’ve had snow, forcing us to pile on the layers; then suddenly, we got rid of them after the sun appeared :).  Sadly, the bright sun is now gone and clouds and showers have taken over :(. SO we say all this to say, we are tired anxious.  We are anxiously awaiting the sun, pretty, colorful flowers and longer fun-filled days .  Looks like our Chunyo is too.

Been doing a lot of this lately. Really need to work off these winter pounds..

Chunyo can be a little moody sometimes and yesterday was definitely one of those days. When Chunyo is in a bad mood and is on the verge of a tantrum (kid you not, sometimes he even throws himself on the ground) his bottom lip comes out.  Check out this picture – this is what Chunyo looks like when he is CRANKY! He was not happy!!!  Maybe it was the snow outside (it’s been cold), his lack of outdoor exercise or maybe its the cameras. He has limited tolerance for all those clicks…  But regardless of his mood – he is still cute to us!

Easy Pumpkin Treats for Chunyo

Dog treats

Waiting for his pumpkin treats!

Chunyo loves his treats – Kongs stuffed with peanut butter, liver treats, and the occasional bully stick.  But one of his FAVORITE treats is pumpkin.  HE loves himself some pumpkin – in a bowl, on a spoon, or in a treat.  However he can get it, he will take it! His vet was the first to recommend it. So from time to time he gets it as a treat.  Rather than putting it in a little bowl, we recently decided to change it up a bit – frozen pumpkin treats.  

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 organic can of pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • Ice tray (Put one scoop in each opening; recommend mixing it up with a little bit of water so it is not too thick)

Tada!  Wait a couple of hours and your pooch will be happy with his new pumpkin treat!

Friday’s Pic – It is cold. Burrrr….


Ready for my walk.. It's cold. Let's make it quick!

It’s been pretty cold lately and Chunyo has been feeling super lazy.  Can barely get him out the door. (Just check out the pics this week to see.)  It has been pretty windy so we have been bundling him up for his afternoon walks.  We got him a new coat for the season.  We looked at him today and realized he looks a little nerdy. Gotta get him a cooler coat!

Still Recovering from the Long Weekend..

Dogs and the Winter Blues….

It’s winter.  It’s cold, gray and gloomy outside.  No one wants to go outside including our Chunyo. Even though we take him on his daily walks – he does his best to run back home as soon as he is done with his “business.”

SO as a result we have been seeing a lot of this lately. After careful observation, we think it’s official. Chunyo has the winter blues…

Chunyo's Winter Blues

Winter Blues

He spent all weekend curled up on the couch and sleeping way too much. He wakes up long enough to get some water, a little food and to stretch his legs.  But that’s it!! After that it was back to his favorite position this winter – ZZZZZZ…  Who does that?

So to get him out of his funk, we are making an effort to get him to play indoors.  Needless to say we are pulling out more toys to help him burn some energy, shed his winter pounds and keep him out of trouble.

What are you doing to help your dog get over the winter blues?
