Dog park

Layla had her first trip to the dog park today!  She finally got all her shots, so now it’s time to start socializing her at the dog park.  After a rough start, she did pretty good.  She was really scared when all the dogs came up and started sniffing her, but soon she was running around without a care in the world.  She made a couple of new friends.  We will start bringing her up there on the golf cart starting next week!!

Layla also graduates from puppy school today!  It’s a big day for her! 🙂

Backyard Camping

My husband and I love to go camping, especially in this weather!! Unfortunately, we don’t have the time to go right now, so we did the next best thing last night.  We ordered an inexpensive fire pit and a half a cord of wood and set up our mini campsite in our own backyard!  It’s the next best thing!! Layla didn’t love it though and even this morning she wouldn’t go near the fire pit and barked at it, so I had to move it and hide it in the garage! (Click on the link to order your own!)

Puppy Training

Layla is probably the cutest puppy ever and she’s super smart.  I have spent so much time worrying about potty training her that I never really gave her a chance to tell me she needs to go.  I’m going to try out these potty bells that I bought on amazon.  Fingers crossed  that she uses them!!

Jalapeño Sausage Balls

This is a year of creating new Christmas traditions!! My new German Shepherd puppy, Kaizer, finally has all of his shots and is able to go to places that other dogs go.  First stop on Christmas morning was to take him to the Katy Trail for a walk.  While we were out, we noticed that the Katy Trail Ice House had the fire pits going, so after our walk, we went and warmed up by the fire.  I’m not sure if they were open on Christmas day, but they were nice enough to come build a fire and leave water for all the people who exercise on the trail.  Kaiser absolutely loved being out there and greeting all the other dogs.  We have hereby renamed the Katy Trail to the Kaizer Trail and the Katy Trail Ice House is now the Kaizer Trail Ice House.

After the walk on the Katy Trail, we went home and made Jalapeño Sausage Balls.  They were so delicious and will be how we start off all of our future Christmas mornings!! They are SO easy to make and they are SOOOOO good!! I wasn’t sure I’d like the jalapeño in them, so I made half with peppers and half without. From now on I will make them ALL with the jalapeños!!

2 Cups of Bisquick
1 Cup of Cheese
1 lb of browned sausage (I prefer the Hot)
Diced Jalapeños to taste

Combined the ingredients until all the Bisquick is mixed together and there is no dry flour. Roll the mixture in to small balls and put on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 20 – 25 minutes until brown.
