Today's post is about a number of things. Some are new items, some are updates.
First, our dear friend Sissy is having serious surgery today. Please send good thoughts and keep those powerful paws crossed for her speedy recovery.
Next, I'd like to acknowledge an award that was given to our blog. We received this honor from two sources, The Five Sibes and from The Op Pack.
Although I'm not athletic (never have been), I love hockey and used to have season's tickets and I dated a hockey player for awhile. My favorite pro team is the Montreal Canadiens.
Now to pass it on.
We send this award to Zona and her family. They made an important announcement over the weekend
We send it to The 4 B's. They are an energetic pack that remind me of my own fur kids.
We also send it to Golden Pines. They have a large pack like ours and do some important rescues.
Next is an update on crafty projects. 2010 was not a very productive year for crafts around here. I blame most of it on my eye surgeries, but some was just plain laziness. I did, however, complete a couple items. I did two sets of Pile-able Pups. They are a Mochi Mochi pattern.
Finally, we tried a new recipe yesterday. This one was for my "bacon dog" Morgan. As some of my long time readers know, Morgan loves bacon and was at one time almost addicted to it. We had to ease her off the good smelling stuff, but she still gets a piece now and then as a special treat.

Peanut Butter & Bacon Bites
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1/2 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons bacon bits
1/2 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Blend all ingredients in a food processor. Form dough into a ball. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out with a cookie cutter. Bake on greased cookie sheet for 20 minutes. Let cool. Refrigerate.
A couple notes. I didn't use a food processor. I mixed the dough in a bowl. Be sure your peanut butter is at room temperature. Mine was out of the fridge and it wouldn't mix until I let it sit and relax. After rolling it out I get tired of cutting shapes and the dogs don't care, so I use a pizza cutter to make little squares, just bite size.
