Let’s celebrate! CAPS’ newest Public Service Announcement, “Adopt, Don’t Shop,” is currently airing on Sundance Channel, WCAU-TV in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh Cable News Channel, The National Geographic Channel, and National Geographic Wild Channel. The thought-provoking clip features Mother, also known as CAPS President Deborah Howard, urging viewers nationwide to save lives by adopting companion animals from shelters instead of supporting the cruel and inhumane pet shop – puppy mill cycle. The bratty brothers (Spencer, Wylie, and Oliver) and I also make an appearance in the 30-second PSA. In honor of all *OUR* hard work, I would like to share a delicious, vegan recipe with my pawmazing fans. The gooey, minty, chocolatey concoction is easy to bake and cruelty-free! Enjoy!

I’m very upset!
Mother left to NYC last Sunday and I had to stay behind with the
rambunctious, bratty brothers AGAIN. Just as I was ready to forgive
her, she started posting all sorts of pictures on her Instagram account
(@capsdog). Mother went to vegan restaurants (such as Peacefood Cafe),
ate delicious cruelty-free doughnuts at Dun-Well Doughnuts, walked by
beautiful houses on Riverside Dr, and stopped by Humphrey Bogart’s
childhood home at 245 103rd Street, NYC. Enough is enough! Next time
she goes on a business trip to the city, I’m coming along with my own
personal driver. I’ll stop at all the fashionable boutiques, demand
pictures with famous people, and eat heaps of vegan food at all the
trendy vegan restaurants Mother goes to. Until then, I’m expecting an
apology in the shape of baked goods. I found a mouthwatering recipe for
apple cider doughnuts on Vegetarian Times perfect for the upcoming fall
season. I expect to lick clean multiple bowls! Enjoy! Continue reading
I love Greek cuisine! Mother saw this the other day on The Veg Life website and said she wanted to try it. Obviously, I volunteered as a professional vegan recipe taster. I haven’t posted a nice, savory dish in a while, so I’m really excited about sharing this cruelty-free spanakopita with my pawmazing fans. Just thinking of this beautiful, flaky, spinach pie is making me drool like the Basset I am! Enjoy! Continue reading
Mother has been a very busy bee! I know being the president of a nonprofit like CAPS is time-consuming, but I really want some attention! The bratty brothers recently had an all boys party and I wasn’t invited. The nerve! To make things worse, Mother went to New York City and I had to stay behind with three rambunctious boys. *Sigh* My life is complicated! Continue reading
Beatrice was rescued in 2003 by the Companion Animal Protection Society (CAPS) during an undercover investigation of a South Dakota puppy mill. These days, the 11-year-old Basset Hound is a tireless advocate on behalf of animals, especially those in pet shops and puppy mills.
A talented model who loves to be in front of the camera, Beatrice is a wonderful spokesmodel for CAPS. When she’s not enjoying the celebrity lifestyle, she’s blogging and updating her numerous social media accounts.
Life is good! When I’m not working tirelessly to create awareness about pet shops and puppy mills, I’m sunbathing in my beautiful garden or relaxing in one of my multiple beds. The best part about summer days in the Howard household is all the vegan baking and cooking. Even if I can’t eat all of Mother’s tasty creations, I can help clean delicious, dirty bowls! This week, Mother made a peach bundt coffee cake with juicy peach chunks and a cinnamon filling. This fruity version of the traditional cake will have all your friends and family begging for more. Enjoy! Continue reading
It’s been a while since I last posted a recipe. My life has been quite busy! My beautiful ads are currently displayed in MBTA commuter trains and at 20 Boston area stations, my PSA is about to air in the Sundance Channel, and Mother keeps traveling all over Massachusetts to take pictures of me posing next to my pawsome ads. Today, I finally have the time to sit down and go over my collection of delicious vegan recipes. I think you’re all going to enjoy this healthy, PINK version of the classic Pop-Tarts! I love sweet and fruity flavors, especially during the spring! Continue reading
The Bratty Brothers are not exactly my favorite people in the world, but they’re family (sometimes, that’s all that matters). Yesterday, we celebrated Oliver’s one year adoption anniversary. Even though my newest BB is always trying to steal MY spotlight (in fact, his photo with Mother was chosen by South Shore Living magazine to be in the March issue about influential women), I’m glad he made it to the Howard household. I remember the day Mother saw his picture posted by Spalding County Animal Shelter on Facebook; it was love at first sight. The three-year-old Australian Cattle Dog and Redtick Coonhound mix stray, formerly known as Bard, completed heartworm treatment, has been neutered, and gained 8 lbs. He is currently taking positive reinforcement clicker training lessons to overcome fear aggression. Poor guy is afraid of some dogs, especially those off-leash, because he had to survive on the streets of Griffin, GA, where he was attacked by other dogs (he has scars on his face). I’m not saying I’m giving up my royal seat (or orthopedic dog bed) to my rambunctious sibling, but I’m willing to ask Mother to make one of Oliver’s favorite recipes: sweet potato tots. Not only are they vegan, but they’re low fat too! Continue reading
People often ask me how I stay fit and beautiful while helping myself to mouth-watering dishes. Besides going to physical therapy to tone and strengthen my muscles, I follow a vegan diet without harmful fats and cholesterol. Obviously, I can’t eat certain foods like garlic and onions, but I’ll share this recipe with you so you can enjoy a delicious and cruelty-free meal and celebrate the arrival of such a beautiful season! Warm weather gives you the perfect excuse to prepare cool and light meals straight from your refrigerator! Continue reading
