Pumpkin Streusel Muffins | Tasty Tuesday

We tried a new recipe this weekend and it's so fantastic I had to share.  This is a people food recipe and we made these muffins small.  Our theory was that if they were smaller, we wouldn't pig them.  HA!
Pumpkin Streusel Muffins

1/4 cup butter, softened
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup granulated sugar (We cut this back to 3/4 cup)
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar  (We cut this back to 3/4 cup.)
2 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups canned pumpkin
1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pumpkin Pie Streusel

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with a heavy duty stand mixer until creamy.  Gradually add sugars, beating until light and fluffy.  Add eggs.1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.
2.  Stir together flour and next 4 ingredients; gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed.  Stir in pumpkin and next 3 ingredients.

3.  Spoon batter into 2 lightly greased (12 cups) muffin pans filling two-thirds full.  (We used Halloween cupcake papers and did not fill them this much.) Sprinkle with Pumpkin Pie Streusel.
4.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center cmes out clean.  Cool in pans on wire racks 5 minutes;  remove from pans to wire racks and cool 20 minutes.

Pumpkin Pie Streusel
Stir together 1/2 cup chopped pecans, 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar, 1 Tbsp melted butter and 1/4 twp pumpkin pie spice.

Lucky Horseshoe Equestrian Jewelry at For Love of a Dog

Horse shoes are one of the most common lucky symbols in our country.  They're often hung in homes to defend and attract good luck for the people who live there.  Some traditions say that the horseshoe should be upright to hold the good luck;  others believe the horseshoe should be upside down to pour good luck on the owner.

Whether or not you believe horseshoes are lucky, they certainly look great in my equestrian themed jewelry at For Love of a Dog!  Here are just a few examples:

Shown at left are some very vintage style horseshoe earrings.  Beautiful antiqued brass floral horseshoe charms freely dangle from big, fact deep orange agate gemstone beads.
Silver Lucky Horseshoe Earrings ©

These antiqued silver horseshoe charms are combined with jet black faceted crystal rondelles.

National Mule Day | Monday Mischief

I owe an apology to mules and mule lovers.  National Mule Day was October 26.  Unfortunately, I was too busy celebrating Pit Bull dogs (National Pit Bull Awareness Day) to celebrate mules.  However, in the spirit of better late than never and, as a fan of all equine, especially mules, I've decided to do some celebrating today.

National Mule Day marks the arrival of a special Spanish donkey to our country.

In addition to being a passionate American Foxhound dog breeder, George Washington is often called the "father of the American mule."  According to Our White House here's how the story goes:

In 1785, when King Charles III of Spain heard that General Washington, at home in Mount Vernon, was looking for the finest jackasses in the world to mate with his mares to create “super mules,” he sent Washington two of his best Spanish donkeys.
Only one survived the cross-Atlantic journey, landing safely in Boston. With meticulous care, Washington personally planned its arrival at Mount Vernon, making sure that his mares had lived a celibate existence so that they would warmly welcome their “foreign affair.” The regal jackass—Washington named him Royal Gift—was not at all pleased with the proffered country bumpkins and made no attempt to seal the deal.  

As frustrated as the poor mares, the creative Mr. Washington decided to trick Royal Gift.  He used a female donkey to capture the attention of the Spanish jackass, then, at just the right moment, pulled a switch substituting the femme fatale donkey with one of his Virginian mares. 

The ploy worked and by 1799 there were fifty-seven new mules at Mount Vernon. Washington farmed them out across the country to improve the nation’s stock and as a result many of the best mules today can trace their lineage back to old Royal Gift and George Washington’s mares.
Our mammoth jack, Mr. Jones

For those not in the know, mules are the result of breeding a male donkey (jack) to a female horse.   When a female donkey (jennet) is bred with a male horse (stallion) the result is a hinny.   Male mules are called horse mules or johns;  female mules are called mare mules or mollies.

Our john mule, Clyde meeting Spanky

Stubborn like a mule?  I prefer: smart as a mule.  While a horse's first impulse is to flee from danger, a mule will often freeze and refuse to move when danger is sensed.  Mule (and donkeys) will think about the situation and figure out the safest response.  Frankly, the mules I've known are often smarter than a lot of people I've met!

Yep, that's me driving a four-up of mules:  Molly, Nellie, Frank and Jesse
There's probably more mischief ahead... I really need to feature a mule song on Dog Song Saturday!

Thank you to Snoopy’s Dog Blog, Alfie’s Blog, and My Brown Newfies for hosting Monday Mischief!

Adopt a Dancing Pit Bull Dog: Trix

Trix Photo ©Four Directions Hiking

This smiling girl is Trix.  She's a Pit Bull Terrier mixed breed dog about 5 1/2 years old.  Medium size at 40 pounds, she'll fit right in your lap.  Right now Trix is living at Stray Rescue of Saint Louis Pine Street animal shelter.  Here's what shelter staff and volunteers have to say about Trix:
Trix is showing the camera her most adorable expression.  It isn't difficult for her to look so cute as everyone calls her a sweet and wonderful girl.  Trix came to Stray Rescue through their Pound Assistance Program, and just two days later she had her babies, the "cereal" puppies.  Clearly she is just as gorgeous as all of her puppies who have been adopted or are in foster care. Now it is Trix's time for a new home.

Trix just can't get enough lovin'.  She is a volunteer favorite, and they all tell her how wonderful she is.  When Trix gets excited, she stands up on her back legs and does a little twirly dance.  It makes everyone laugh.  Besides being so personable, Trix is also very neat.  She keeps her apartment at the shelter very tidy and has never had an accident.

Trix likes going for walks, but she was especially happy to go on a five mile hike with some shelter buddies.  She proved to be a great car rider, settling quickly in to watch the world go by.  On the trail, she kept pace with her human companion, neither pulling or dragging behind.  She also explained to her companion that she especially adores tummy rubs.
Trix loves tummy rubs.  Photo ©Four Directions Hiking
Trix can be a bit shy when you first meet her, but once she knows you, the two of you become BFFs.  Couldn't you use a best friend who is sweet and dances?  Please come and meet Trix and prepare to fall in love.

For more information about Trix, contact Stray Rescue St Louis at 314-771-6121.

Founded by Randy Grim, Stray Rescue of St Louis sole purpose is to rescue stray animals in need of medical attention, restore them to health, and place them in loving adoptive homes.  Virtually all of the pets they save have been abused and neglected.  Stray Rescue is a no-kill organization that believes rescued animals often make the best pets.  Given a second lease on life and in return for a little affection and attention, these remarkable animals reward their new owners with a love and loyalty unmatched anywhere.

On Tuesday we'll be participating in the Tuesday's Tails blog hop hosted by Dogs N Pawz.  This is the blog hop that features shelter pets.  Find a pet at your local animal shelter or rescue and join us!  Please help spread the word about these beautiful animals via social media and let's find them forever homes!

Black White Pit Bull Dog Necklace ©For Love of a Dog Jewelry

I can't help myself... I love this necklace.  Someone hurry and buy it so I don't have to try and find room in my own jewelry box for it.  AND if you hurry, you'll enjoy the fact that in honor of National Pit Bull Awareness Month, all my Pit Bull dog jewelry is ON SALE!

Look at that face.  That tongue.  Can you resist this one of a kind, hand sculpted sweet dog face pendant.  Check out those details and I dare you not to smile.

For the necklace I used some big fat rose pink lepidolite gemstone beads to coordinate with that tongue and hand wired wrapped them with sleek grey hematite gemstone beads.  Now, this is a dog lover gift worth barking about!

Follow-up Friday: Rants, Fat Dogs, Videos!

I'm happy to be joining Heart Like a Dog in the follow-up Friday blog hop this week.  This is the blog hop that lets you wrap up your week and leads you right into the weekend.  Hosted by FUF creator, Jodi at Heart Like a Dog

Do you mind if I rant a little bit?
Why does October have so many cool things to celebrate or blog about?  And why are some of them even on the same day?  Adopt a Dog, Adopt a Shelter Dog, Pet Obesity Awareness Month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Dog-gone it, National Pit Bull Awareness Day and National Mule Day are the same exact day.  Shoot.  There are others.  Why couldn't they all be spread out better over the year.

This week I reached my quota of horrible animal stories.  I'd just read (skimmed) the news story about another brutal crime of cruelty towards a dog and another story about the Georgia animal shelter break in (asshats turned dogs loose and made them fight), when I had an email from a friend involved in rescue in NY with another gruesome tale of cruelty.  Some days I think I just can't take any more.  You, too?

Okay, this isn't really a rant.  You know how you hear over and over again that Labs will eat anything?  Not Rudy.  A couple of days ago I finally got around to adding my dogs to Pets Move and I felt strange as I put in Rudy's weight:  104.  Doesn't that just plain sound fat for a Lab?   Well, Rudy is NOT fat!  However, I have a feeling that as Rosie moves from puppy to dog... she'll be needing to join doggie weight watchers.  [And I want you to know, per our vet, Rudy is in tip top health!]

Rudy... fat?  Not.

Feral Cat Song - Dog Song Saturday
I'm a feral cat feeder.  If you are, too, don't miss the lyrics to this song!  Many thanks to Beth for the reminder of the Mean Kitty Song.  I featured it a few years ago on Dog Song Saturday.   Thanks also to Ann for the link to this very creative cat themed song and video!

Adopt Lilith a Pit Bull Dog in Missouri
Lilith is my most recent adoptable dog feature.  You know, I love the adoption updates so many of the Tuesdays Tails blog hop bloggers post.  Unfortunately, nearly all of the dogs I feature are from "kill" shelters.  I've learned the hard way to not do follow up.  Follow up usually results in sleepless nights, terrible dreams, and increased temptation to become one of those terribly misguided hoarders.

Herbsmith Freeze Dried Dog Treats Review
I'm increasing intrigued with freeze dried dog food and treats.  My pack loves these, plus we've been using Orijen's freeze dried dog food as a topper on their food.  Finally, Rudy is excited about food.

My Shelter Dogs - Wordless Wednesday
Loved all the great comments and compliments about Jeffie and Rosie.  They're just the latest shelter dogs in my life.  Beginning with Bennie, my first dog after I left home; Sherman,  and Spanky.  The others weren't lucky enough to have managed to get themselves to a shelter, but were lucky enough to have been rescued by me :-)
Jeffie and Rosie

Adopt a Shelter Dog - Favorite Videos
If you missed this post, fetch it!  Honestly, these are great videos promoting adoption.  And they are upbeat!!

And finally... thanks to everyone who's been leaving such fabulous comments on my jewelry posts.  I truly read and appreciate every single one!

Adopt a Shelter Dog Month: My Favorite Videos

National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month is fast coming to a close.  Rather than repeat what I've said so many times before about the benefits and joys of adopting your next furry best friend from a shelter or rescue, I thought I'd share just a few of my favorite upbeat adopt a dog videos. (Tissues are NOT required!)

I featured this one with singer songwriter Edie Brickell's catchy tune on Dog Song Saturday.  It is definitely worth an encore.

I can't help loving this clever video and agree that I do wish everyone could see me as my dogs see me!


If my own shelter dogs could speak English, they'd join me in saying...

Celebrating Adopt a Shelter Dog Month with Artisan Jewelry

Adopt Dog Bone Bracelet - Photo ©For Love of a Dog Jewelry

Since so many of my own dogs were rescues or adopted from an animal shelter, I not only support various dog rescue groups, I create jewelry that celebrates adoption.  With October being Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, I thought I should highlight some of my dog bone ADOPT jewelry here on the Talking Dogs blog.

The Adopt Dog Bone Bracelet shown at the top combines beautiful deep aqua blue handmade lampwork beads and fat faceted clear crystal rondelles surrounding the hand crafted porcelain ADOPT dog bone.  Adorable dog collar and dog bone toggle clasp.

Shown below is another Adopt Dog Bone Bracelet, but this one combines tomato orange coral and peridot jade gemstone beads with a tomato orange ADOPT porcelain dog bone.

The Adopt a Best Friend dog bone bracelet shown below is all about being a true blue best friend.  The royal blue porcelain ADOPT dog bone is surrounded by coordinating artisan lampwork and faceted crystal beads, plus some genuine lapis lazuli gemstone beads and heart.

Fetch the dog rescue jewelry at For Love of a Dog and you'll find more ADOPT and RESCUE dog bone bracelets and some necklaces, too.  Most are one of a kind and make barking good gifts for dog lovers.

My Shelter Dogs | Wordless Wednesday

Jeffie - Golden Retriever / Border Collie

Rosie - Golden Retriever and ?

We celebrate Adopt a Shelter Dog Month every day here at Talking Dogs!
Rosie and Jeffie are my two shelter dogs these days.  I found both of them on Petfinder, yet neither had photos posted there.   

In Jeffie's case, his brother's photo was on Petfinder to represent all three puppies.  When we arrived at the animal shelter, it was Jeffie who captured my heart.

In Rosie's case, she was a solo puppy and there never was a photo posted.  We adopted her within 36 hours of her being listed there.   They say timing is everything!

Turquoise Copper Dog Bone Bracelet ©For Love of a Dog Jewelry

Spread the word that you're a dog lover with some fun artisan jewelry from For Love of a Dog.  Not only is copper said to be healing for your joints, it's also quite trendy these days.  I love the combination of copper with turquoise, like the dog bone bracelet shown above.  Chubby turquoise gemstone beads surround a wonderful handmade flamed copper dog bone focal.  I couldn't resist adding a sweet copper heart hand stamped with DOG.

Herbsmith Freeze Dried Dog Treats from Natural Pet Warehouse | Product Review

When Natural Pet Warehouse contacted me about doing a pet product review, I accepted because they offered us some freeze dried dog treats.  After having tried some freeze dried dog food (that we used as topper), I've become interested in this easy way to add some of the same benefits as raw food to my dogs' diets.

We received one package of Herbsmith Smiling Dog Freeze Dried Treats in chicken flavor from Natural Pet Warehouse.  These dog treats come in a 2.5 oz resealable package for $13.99, though they're on sale right now at Natural Pet Warehouse for $8.49.

Jeffie, Rosie and Rudy are ready to taste test!
Herbsmith dog treats are meat based with complementing fruits and vegetables.  The chicken flavor includes apples and spinach.  These are grain free dog treats which contain no preservatives, no fillers, no additives and are sourced and made in the USA.

Ingredients:  Chicken, apples, spinach

Guaranteed Analysis:
  • Crude Protein   57% minimum
  • Crude Fat   9% minimum
  • Crude Fiber   2% maximum
  • Moisture   3% maximum
Rosie says:  Yum...
Our package of dog treats arrived within just a couple of days from Natural Pet Warehouse.  When I opened the package I was greeted with a very earthy, grain smell.  All three dogs definitely approved!
Rudy gets the first taste while Rosie and Jeffie patiently await theirs.
Rosie gets a taste and it looks like Rudy is ready for more!
These freeze dried treats come in small round wafers that remind me of those potting soil wafers that come with packaged Amaryllis bulbs.  They're small enough for training treats for our large dogs, but also easy to break for smaller dogs.
Herbsmith Freeze Dried Dog Treats from Natural Pet Warehouse
Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie loved them!  I'm pleased to recommend them.
The Talking Dogs agree:  GOOD!
Herbsmith Smiling Dog Freeze Dried Treats are also available in these flavor varieties at Natural Pet Warehouse:
