Welcome to April

"About my dog, I talk to him when I'm lonesome like; and I'm sure he understands. When he looks at me so attentively, and gently licks my hands; then he rubs his nose on my tailored clothes, but I never say naught thereat. For the good Lord knows I can buy more clothes, but never a friend like that." ~W. Dayton Wedgefarth

It's April Already? Where did March go?
Welcome to this weeks (very short) edition of Dogs on Thursday.
We have two new members this week added to the blog roll.

Please thank Natalie for keeping this place going while I was out sick with pneumonia.
I have lots to catch up on and as usual feel two paces behind.
My goal this week is to finish answering your emails and go visiting with each of your blogs and even write on my own.

I loved last weeks spotlight on Murphy and Michelle's Paw Cozy is ingenious!
I added the link to her pattern at Knitty on the side bar.
I can't wait to start making one!

Speaking of knitting while re-cooperating I finished some knitting projects and one was a snuggle for the DoT Snuggle Project.

Here is Elise testing it out.
I started a mobus snuggle the other day and it is looking pretty good.
Please visit the Snuggle blog and see what some others are making!

I don't have a Doggie Spotlight this week but here is a recipe of one of Elise's favorite dog cookies.

Peanutters for Drooling

3 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup of plain yogurt
3 Tablespoons of water
1 egg
a pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups graham flour

Mix the egg, peanut butter, water and yogurt in to a large bowl.
Then pour the flour and salt in.
Stir well, pour out on to well floured board and roll out.
Cut with cookie cutters and bake in a preheated 350'F oven.
Bake until just lightly brown but cooked through.
Let cool and harden for at least an hour.
Good for the humans too!

Well then - my post today is completely on topic! :)

I'm so glad you're better. Pneumonia is nothing to fool with.

Blogger is contrary today. It keeps eating what I try to post. Just wanted to say that Elise looks like she likes the snuggle and our boys are sending two barks of good cheer to aid in your recovery.
