Homemade Dog Food Recipes

It happened after 7 years hours of begging, pleading, promising, we brought home our newest family member.  We researched and we spent hours of our time trying to figure out what the best type of the puppy would be for our family.

We brought home Joy. She is so popular in our home that she has her own Instagram Our Beagle Joy.

She was a tiny bundle of energy. She bounced from person to person. She licked your face and opened the heart of even the most anti-dog person. We couldn’t just feed her what was found in a bag. We began to create homemade dog food recipes.

We found that making our own treats was a great way to save money. It also is a nice way to spend time together. I find that making food always creates memories. The best part of homemade dog food treats is once you get to know what your puppy likes you can use those ingredients in a recipe for them. I know our Beagle Joy likes almost anything that isn’t nailed down. I think that is the breed. She does tend to like things that she can chew on for a long time. I think the Kong fill recipe is one of her favorites for that very reason. She enjoys eating it. I highly suggest kong training if you haven’t heard of it. It helped us get her into her crate and stay there without whining.

These are a couple of Joy’s favorite dog food recipes. Please, share your dog’s favorite.

Fun Soccer Games For Kids

Who won? What was the score? What position does she play? What position does he play? How long are they in the game? How long did they stay in the game? Did they score? Did they get carded? Who won again?

The main problem with sports is they have become so competitive. That is why each year I send my kids to the Challenger Sports British Soccer Camp. I do it because not only are they teaching them the skills that need to practice and improve on they teach them using games.

Challenger Sports British Soccer Camp

The atmosphere is relaxed in a multi level and multiage age group. The players help one another through encouragement. They do more than build skillset they build relationships.

These are some of the fun games the players played while at the British Soccer Camp.
