I thought for sure that South Shore Living had chosen me to be one of the 10 most influential women on the South Shore of Boston. I was able to live with the fact that the magazine had chosen Mother because she and I posed for photos together for the article. She also posed with the Bratty Brothers (Spencer, Wylie, and Oliver), but being that I was quite the consummate professional and they acted like brats, I was positive that the magazine was going to feature the photo of Mother and me posing on an overturned rowboat. To my dismay, the magazine used a photograph of Mother sitting with Oliver (Wylie is below them, but you can’t see much of him). Oliver is very prominent in the photo. How could this have happened?

I have the perfect recipe for the weekend! After asking my Facebook fans for their input, I decided to post a delicious treat that will satisfy anybody’s sweet tooth. It’s not safe for cats or dogs, but I promise we won’t mind if YOU enjoy it! Just remember not to eat all the biscotti at once! Continue reading
I’m counting the days for Valentine’s Day! As you may know by now, I love pink and anything girly. I also love Mother’s pawmazing gift for vegan baking. If you’re looking for something sweet other than chocolate to surprise that special someone (or friend), check out this tasty recipe. Nothing says “I love you” or “You’re a great friend” like a cruelty-free macaroon. Place the confection in a pretty pink (or red) box and you’re good to go! Continue reading
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
Happy New Year, my dear fans! I’m so excited for 2014! The year already began with fantastic news. Last week, I was part of an exciting photo shoot for the March 2014 issue of South Shore Living magazine. 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
