I am VERY upset! I turned 11 years old on January 5 and, even though I celebrated with plenty of beauty sleep for an entire week, I never got my surprise party. Mother has been extra busy since the year started and I’ve had to be patient, something that does NOT come naturally to a celebrity like me. I wanted cake, treats, massages from Sterling Impression, très chic accessories, and a sparkly tiara. Instead of beautiful gifts, I got to spend extra, unwanted time with the bratty brothers while Mother travels to Washington, D.C. Hrmph! I’m still expecting a glamorous birthday celebration, even if I have to wait for Valentine’s Day. I already went online shopping for pawmazing collars and leashes on Etsy.com (Valentine Dog Collar, Designer Rosette Flower Dog Collar, and Snow Glitter Dog Collar with Snow Glitter Leash and Dog Collar Flower Add-on). As soon as I get my fabulous collars and Mother returns from her business trip, I’ll make plans for my fête d’anniversaire and beg for a PINK, vegan strawberry cake! Continue reading

I love the holidays! Everything about the season is magical: the colorful decorations, the twinkling lights, the fresh snow outside, the beautiful Christmas trees, the delicious cookies, and the thoughtful gifts. Not only do I get to spend time with family (bratty brothers included), but Mother puts up MY Christmas tree and adorns it with pretty and pink ballerina ornaments. The thing I look forward to the most is waking up on the 25th to the smell of delicious, mouth-watering food. Mother prepares the BEST recipes on Christmas day and I get to help her clean up the dishes. Today, I’m posting a pawmazing recipe for a vegetarian spread, the PERFECT dish to bring to a fun party. Enjoy! Continue reading

Brrr! It’s cold outside! After surviving the first major snowstorm of the season, I’m ready to curl up with the feline siblings and relax for the rest of the day. I’m tired of looking at all the snow I’m not shoveling! A creamy, hot soup would make this lazy Sunday even better. I can’t eat chives, scallions, or leeks (they’re toxic to cats and dogs), but I’m sure my human fans would enjoy this delicious, cruelty-free recipe from Whole Foods. Enjoy and stay warm!
Note: Some of the ingredients listed are HIGHLY toxic to cats and dogs. Continue reading

I love November! Not only do I get to spend time with family in the Howard household, but I get to eat yummy, homemade vegan dishes (ex. Mother’s Mushroom Gravy). I can’t wait to savor Mother’s yearly Thanksgiving dinner, my mouth waters just thinking about it (and it doesn’t take a lot to make a Basset drool!). In the meantime, I’m hoping I can convince my favorite chef to make as many pumpkin flavored recipes as possible before the season ends. If you’re looking to change things a bit this year, this recipe would make a pawmazing alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie. Enjoy! Continue reading

I <3 Autumn!
I love dressing up for Halloween (wait until you see my new costume!).
I love going to Halloween parties and people admiring my pawsome costumes.
I love going to my garden and enjoying the different shades of reds, browns, yellows, and oranges.
I love helping Mother prepare delicious dishes with pumpkin, cinnamon, apples, brown sugar, and nutmeg.
Most of all, I love curling up in my favorite princess bed as the house cools down and the days grow shorter and colder.
There’s so much to enjoy about October! In honor of this pawmazing month, I’m sharing with you a recipe with a special fall ingredient: PUMPKIN! And it’s not just another pumpkin recipe, it’s a vegan pumpkin MUFFINS recipe, YUM! Enjoy!
This recipe is for human consumption. Research what ingredients are toxic to dogs (and cats) before letting your four-legged family have a bite (or lick). And remember, moderation is the key! Continue reading

I finally have the chance to lie down on my favorite princess bed and tell my assistant what to type for my pawsome blog. Blindness won’t stop a celebrity like me from posting delicious recipes and offering my dear fans a glimpse of my glamorous life (and menu)! Mother and I have been obsessed with Rawmazing ever since the summer started (check out their website and you’ll understand why!). Last weekend, I had the incredible opportunity to help Mother clean up dishes after she made Rawmazing’s Raw Yam and Carrot Savory Pancakes. Since I haven’t posted anything new in a while, I’m going to be a great friend and share this treat. Enjoy! Continue reading

I’ve had a tough couple of weeks. Mother found out I had a corneal ulcer about two weeks ago and I was getting eyedrops non-stop. Yesterday, my amazing vet Dr. Federica Maggio from Tufts VETS gave me some great news! My eye is finally healing thanks to her treatment and she won’t have to remove it. I only need eyedrops four times a day instead of five (believe me, that’s a big difference in my busy household)! Even though I’m blind now, I’m pretty happy that I get to keep my eye. I was worried my modeling career would be ruined. In order to celebrate, I’m going to start embracing the coming of Autumn by posting a delicious pumpkin recipe. I might be blind, but I still enjoy all the delicious aromas that come with the season. As a bonus, I’ll add a link to a Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe to go with this delicious cheesecake. Prepare your sweet tooth because you’re in for a fantastic treat! Continue reading

1186333_10153206796750486_1041407230_nI haven’t been feeling that great for the last couple of days. Last Thursday, Mother found out I have a corneal ulcer, probably caused by glaucoma. She spent her entire birthday taking care of me and putting eye drops repeatedly to help my eye heal. I wasn’t feeling like a spokesmodel, so in order to cheer me up (and to celebrate her birthday), she prepared another wonderful recipe from Rawmazing. The bite-sized and raw cherry tarts are so yummy you won’t be able to have just one. Of course, I could only have a bite or two since this is mostly for humans, but I enjoyed every lick! Please visit the Rawmazing website for more delicious recipes. Continue reading

1185666_10153156523250486_1414703565_nMother recently posted a picture of a beautiful-looking tart on her social media accounts. She was trying out our new Instagram iPhone app and decided to take pictures of her most recent culinary masterpiece. I found out she got the recipe from one of the best raw recipe websites out there: Rawmazing (seriously, check it out!). I wasn’t able to taste this mouth-watering dessert (it has chocolate), but Mother swears by it and I believe her!
Note: Chocolate is toxic to cats and dogs, so this recipe is for human consumption ONLY. Continue reading
