Why Dogs and Food?

Why Dogs and Food?

It's simple. Write about what you love. And what is better than dogs and food? If you are anything like me - and millions of other people - you will relate to and understand the unwavering love I have for my dogs and my passion for cooking - and eating - great food. I hope you will enjoy reading about my day to day experiences with good food and a couple of very special dogs.

Thanks for visiting.

My Funny, Little Valentines

"The world would be a nicer place if everybody had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog." ~ M.K. Clinton

It's Valentine's Day.  Lots of love in the air.  Facebook posts loaded with hearts and flowers and hugs and kisses.  It's been awhile since I have had a human 'Valentine'.  Except for my mom.  Mom will always be my Valentine.  But really it's been just me and my pups for a long time now.  And that's okay.  It's better than okay.  It's wonderful.

It was a beautiful, sunshiny day today.  Birds chirping in the trees in the early morning hours and blue skies with wispy clouds hanging in the backdrop.  Flowers are already peeking out of the earth and it feels like Spring. After a lot rain the last few weeks, there is so much green everywhere!  People are outside, mowing lawns, taking walks and even cooking outside on their grills.  My doors are open to let in the fresh air.  I almost forget that it is still Winter.

The boys and I had a good day.  We hung out in the yard in the morning and went for a leisurely walk together in the afternoon.  There is a field close by with lots of tall grass for Raleigh to munch on and lots of mole mounds for Izzy to dig and stick his face into.  I have to keep them on leash as there is a busy road nearby and I also do not trust them not to run off.

Dogs can have so much fun doing the simplest of things.  Sniffing every single bush, pole and flower and peeing on fallen palm fronds; digging in the dirt and rolling in the grass.   Just watching them gives me a peaceful feeling.

I am happy to have spent my Valentine's Day with the two little rascals that love me unconditionally every single day.
