Breakfast With The Dogs

Weekends are the times we have breakfast with the dogs. The best types of breakfasts are when its sunny nice Los Angeles weather and we get to sit outside with the dogs.  Anze (the doxiepin) and Abby (the patterdale terrier) love when we eat breakfast with them outside so that they can sunbathe, play in the grass and hunt for bugs and lizards.  Anze and Abby help make breakfast with us, all together, in the kitchen and then we all like to go eat outside and enjoy our backyard.

Today's breakfast consisted of white rice, over easy egg with homemade pico de gallo avocado corn salsa.  It was so delicious and tasted so fresh and healthy. We made the rice in our new rice cooker! It turned out amazing.




Abby is such a cute patterdale terrier. She is the sweetest most loving little dog. She is so submissive when we call her and melts like mush in your arms when you carry her. She loves to play outside and her number one toy is her Kong Squeaker tennis balls (size small).  



Anze is the most curious little dog. He absolutely loves to go outside and play.  In fact, he will even pretend like he has to "go potty outside" and wait by the door, even if he doesn't have to go potty, just so he can go play outside.  His favorite thing to do is to hunt and look for bugs and lizards.  Sometimes, he has so much fun he doesn't listen and come when it's time to come inside. But how can you get frustrated and say no to this little face..?!



So true!!! Love this!! Everyone should get the chance and spend time to have breakfast with their dogs!

Homemade Chicken Nachos

Anze and Abby's parents made homemade chicken nachos one night.  These homemade chicken nachos made the kitchen smell so good.  Anze (the doxiepin) and Abby (the patterdale terrier) are always standing in the kitchen while their parents cook and are always little beggars hoping that a piece of food will drop.  They are such good little kitchen dog helpers that their parents always let them see and smell the food after it is done cooking.  

RECIPE

They were so excited to see the homemade chicken nachos that were made of tortilla chips, organic fresh cut fully cooked chicken, fully cooked black beans, white onions, and cheese.  They baked in the oven for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. 

The homemade salsa was made with fresh tomatoes, avocados, cilantro, red onion, lime, salt and pepper. And put in the refrigerator to chill until ready to eat. 

This was the perfect meal for watching the game on TV!  Not only were the little dogs happy, but so were their doggy parents.

Dogs Dwarf Key Lime Tree

Yay for the dogs dwarf key lime tree! These little dogs got a new dwarf key lime tree for their backyard.  Anze the doxiepin dog and Abby the patterdale terrier were so excited to get their new dwarf key lime tree to celebrate Spring 2015. Their Mommy got the dwarf key lime tree at Home Depot.  Abby showed a special liking to the dwarf key lime tree and loved sniffing the tree and standing near it and guarding it. Abby's Mommy had to be careful that the thorns on the tree did not stab her in the nose.  This dogs dwarf key lime tree already has little buds blossoming into baby limes! Anze and Abby are so excited to plant the dwarf key lime tree.  The dogs really want to add more dwarf fruit trees to their garden!  Their next dwarf fruit tree that they are thinking about is the dwarf meyer lemon tree!  Stay tuned...

Doggy Family Time

Anze the doxiepin dog and Abby the patterdale dog love doggy family time. Doggy family time is so important to Anze and Abby's family.  Their Mommy and Daddy love doggy family time too. Their favorite doggy family time is when they all get to play outside in the sun and grass. Abby loves to chase tennis balls outside and Anze loves to go hunting for bugs and lizards. Sometimes Anze and Abby just love to lay and sunbathe in the grass.



Anze is a doxiepin dog who is very lovable and very independent.  He loves to hunt for bugs and chew and eat grass. He loves to roll around and smear his face in gross things like dried bird poop on the ground, snail slime, dried worms, and anything with a dirty scent.  Anze definitely gets a bath after he rolls around in gross yucky things.  Taking baths is another doggy family time moment where Daddy normally gives the dogs a bath and Mommy usually dries them off!

Abby is a patterdale terrier and is a working dog. She loves to chase balls and also likes to chew and eat grass. Abby is a very protective and dominant dog, however she is very submissive towards her Mommy and Daddy.  She is a smooth black coated patterdale terrier who doesn't like to be dirty.  She likes to be clean but she doesn't like getting wet or being in the water. The one thing that this little patterdale terrier does love is..... FOOD!!

Abby's favorite doggy family time is doggy family cooking time! Abby loves eating food and loves when her Mommy and Daddy give her food.  These little dogs ONLY get healthy and clean eating food. They NEVER are allowed scraps or bad/junk food.  Anze and Abby's Mommy and Daddy only feed them bites of food that they would only eat themselves.  This meal they both were given kibble, mahi mahi fish and slices of cucumber.


Doggy family time consists of Mommy and Daddy's meal too!  In one of the bowls it has spiraled daikon radish, cucumber, edamame, green onion, mahi mahi, and white rice.  In the other bowl is white rice, mahi mahi, and green beans.

Healthy New Years With the Dogs


Our family celebrated a healthy New Years with the dogs Anze the doxiepin and Abby the patterdale terrier. We made healthy food to start the New Years off right with the dogs. First for breakfast, we made fresh orange & carrot juice and orange juice.  We also baked an avocado with egg in the oven while sprinkling some shredded cheese. It was so delicious and such a healthy breakfast.  


Then for lunch, we made a healthy New Years homemade turkey chili.  We used all fresh ingredients and lean cut of turkey.  The house smelled so good and Anze (doxiepin) and Abby (patterdale terrier) were lucky little dogs and were able to get a quick sniff of the New Years turkey chili.


Cheers to a Happy Healthy Doggy New Year!!


Abby the Patterdale Terrier

Anze's sister is Abby the Patterdale Terrier.  Abby the Patterdale Terrier was rescued and adopted by Anze's parents and was initially told that she was a Doxador (dachshund/labrador retriever mix).  It turns out that as Abby got older she wasn't looking or acting like a normal doxador and in fact had more traits and appearance as a terrier dog.  Anze's parents started researching and it turns out that Abby was not a Doxador dog, but was in fact a Patterdale Terrier dog.  Anze has his own Instagram @doxiepin and Abby used to have her own Instagram @doxador.  However, trying to keep up with the two accounts was a lot of work.  Therefore, Anze was so nice with his sibling love and was willing to share his account with his sister.  Therefore, now you can visit @doxiepin on Instagram and you will find Anze and Abby's pictures. Abby is the cutest and sweetest black smooth coated Patterdale Terrier.

Some of Abby's highlights from her old Instagram account are posted below:
