Beet Brownie Recipe

Anze (the Doxiepin) and Abby's (the Patterdale Terrier) Mommy made a new beet brownie recipe. The beet brownie recipe was a total success! Also, today was the first day of Day Lights Saving Time to Spring Forward into 2015.  The clocks were pushed forward one hour and Anze and Abby's Mommy wanted to celebrate. This Sunday was a beautiful sunny day outside and Anze and Abby had such a fun doggy day outside. The house smelled so good with their new Yankee Candle "Juicy Peach" scent.

Anze and Abby's Mommy tried a new beet brownie recipe that turned out to be fabulous! It was amazing how good the beet brownies tasted and how moist and rich in flavor they were. And the perks of the health benefits compared to other brownie recipes couldn't be better.  This beet brownie recipe was actually pretty simple and easy! These little dogs were so proud of their Mommy! This recipe would definitely be recommended!!  THE BEET BROWNIE RECIPE is listed below: 


-1/2 cup gluten free flour
-1/2 cup beet puree
-1/4 cup sugar
-1/4 cup cocoa baking powder
-1/4 cup coconut oil
-1/4 cup of chocolate chips

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:

Clean Eating Dog Food

Anze and Abby were so excited to try their homemade clean eating dog food.  Their clean eating dog food consisted of boneless skinless chicken breast (plain), slices of carrots and chopped up pieces of green beans cooked in a pan on the stove.  Anze who is a doxiepin (dachshund & miniature pinscher mix) and Abby who is a patterdale terrier are trying to maintain their health and eat clean with no extra preservatives or empty carbohydrates and calories.  Some pet stores sell raw dog food or different types of organic live dog food, but Anze and Abby's parents like to keep their clean eating dog food simple.  It's food that even their parents would want to eat.  Stay tuned for more clean eating dog food recipes.  



While Anze and Abby were busy eating their clean dog food dinner, Anze's Mommy and Daddy were cooking their own clean eating food for themselves.  Anze's Mommy was so excited to get a garlic roaster for Christmas and wanted to try it out. The garlic came out AMAZING! It was like garlic spread that melted in your mouth! This was the best gift ever! Thank you to Anze and Abby's Grandma and Grandpa.

Dog Money Holder

Who needs a wallet when you have a dog money holder? Anze makes a good dog money holder!  This was the perfect picture because Anze's Daddy was counting money when Anze came up and was reaching on his leg and wanted to get picked up.  When his Daddy picked him up he wanted to see what he was doing and he curled his feet upward.  Daddy thought it was funny that Anze looked like a dog money holder and put the money he was counting on Anze's feet.  Anze balanced the money on his feet so well, and for so long! I think Anze wasn't trying to be a dog money holder, but yet he wanted to keep the money for himself!! This little doxiepin dog makes such a cute dog money holder! Everyone should own one! (lol)

3rd Time Seeing Santa

This year, 2014, it was Anze's 3rd time seeing Santa and Abby's 2nd time seeing Santa. Anze was so excited as this was his 3rd time seeing Santa and he was ready to take his holiday photo. He was so excited and yipping while he was waiting in line.  Abby and and Anze had matching outfits again, however this year their Mommy got Abby a dress and Anze had the matching shirt. This Santa wasn't the best looking Santa (like the one they had from the year before), but he made it work.  As this was Anze's 3rd time seeing Santa, he seemed a little distracted and felt that he was "too cool" to pose and look directly at the camera. He was being such a little stinker and refused to cooperate.  Abby on the other hand was being such a good little girl, but she has the same facial expression ("deer in the headlights") and doesn't react or pose for pictures.  You won't see any head tilts or cute smiles from Abby.  At any rate, the annual holiday Santa photo was complete!  Abby and Anze wish all their friends and followers a Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!! Cheers to 2015!!

2nd Time Seeing Santa

Last year was Anze's 2nd time seeing Santa. It was a special time because not only was it Anze's 2nd time seeing Santa, but he got to see Santa with his sister Abby and it was Abby's 1st time seeing Santa. This Santa was the "real deal" for all the Santas out there. These two little dogs were so excited to see Santa. As this was Anze's 2nd time and Abby's 1st time seeing Santa, their Mommy decided to dress them up in matching scarves and bow ties.  Anze and Abby got their matching scarves and bow ties as holiday gifts from the "Min Pin Party" that they went to that weekend! It was a fun-filled weekend and Anze and Abby had so much fun.  Too bad Abby's black coat didn't turn out so well in the picture. You can barely see her face. But she is there.  This was the best holiday photo to send for their family Christmas cards. This little doxiepin dog and this little patterdale dog were so festive and have officially started a family tradition of the dogs seeing Santa.
