Feeling better and Moms dog treat business

BTW, it says I posted this Tuesday the 24th...but I posted it TODAY which is Thursday, the 26ht.

SO! Im feeling better! Mom has been feeding me rice and gave me a tiny bit of Pepto Bismol yesterday and Im feeling better, and looking better too! And best news of all....my poop is back to normal!!

Hey I think this photo could have gone into Deetz's scary eye photo contest, too bad its a little late hehe.

Anyway, as some of you know my momma loves to make her own homemade dog treats. Well, she was thinking about starting an online business of it kinda. What I mean by kinda is that she would sell them on a homemade only website called 'Etsy.com'. Sounds like a fab idea to me mom! She has been working very hard recently to make some really yummy dale approved treats. She was thinking of the name "Torri's Tasty Dog Treats" - that are Pawsitively Delicious! To which they are..sometimes hehe... Anyway what do you think of that name? Is it silly? I told her something like "Gaia is a lovely, perfect dog that will eat Torri's treats anyday" but she said its too long or something. Sheesh, wheres the love mom?? Hopefully the business will be open before or around August or September so fingers crossed.

She says she wants to have a small variety of treats so she doesnt get too overwhelmed with orders. Here are some with their descriptions:
  • "Good Dog" Carob Chip Cookies (Regular drop cookies made with dog-safe Carob instead of chocolate.)
  • Original Peanut Butter Biscuits The original biscuits are classic hit to the dog kingdom. Simple, but packs the punch with flavor and love. Bone or paw shaped.)
  • Dipped Rawhide Sticks Sticks (Rawhide sticks dipped in carob, white chocolate, and peanut butter frosting. Optional: Sprinkled with bacon bits.)
  • Veggie & Cheese Terrier Tea Cakes (A personal favorite to my dogs, made with extra cheddar cheese and fresh carrots. 3 sizes- small, medium or large.)
  • Bad Breath Banishers (Let these cookies chase away your dogs’ bad breath with fresh spearmint right out of my garden. Spearmint is also a natural calming herb for your dogs’ stomach. Baked to pawfection and topped with a carob mint. 3 sizes-small, medium or large.)

And probably only 1 or 2 more. Ill keep you all posted on it, until next time!

Puppy breath and lively licks,

When I was your age a couple of months ago, I got really sick like that too! My human had no idea what was wrong with me. I had the runs...really bad, and I too laid on her bed and groaned. It took a couple weeks, but my human gave the vet a poo sample and I had round worms. Sometimes us puppies get worms from our mommies when we are little and the worms ferment and tease us at the worst times!

I hope you don't have the worms!!!

And by the way...uhhh yum on those treats! You had me drooling, as each drool drop hit the floor I wished for a cookie...mmmmmm...

OMG Gaia you are in doggie heaven. We'll never be able to try those treats because we live here and food can't get past our quarantine waaa waaa so unfair.
Good luck to your mum and her new venture.
