Christmas

Festus loved the Christmas crackers... noisy things that have papers inside, like this crown that he wears so beautifully.

The Santa hat didn't fit his big head though...


Notice my new "keep calm & party" socks, a great asset for xmas :)

3rd gotcha day

Today we celebrate the 3rd gotcha day! 3 years ago we were on our way to get Festus, a 3 months pup with a lot of energy, very big (15 kg/33 pounds) and eager to pull the duvet off the bed, to chase the terrified cat and pee everywhere. Now he is a very important part of our family... our "small" furkid. To celebrated this day I made doggy-pizza.

It's the 1st time I make it, but he loved it. A crust from wholemeal flour, olive oil and water. A thin layer of soft cheese full fat, carrot and pepper slices. After it was baked, I've added a can of tuna in brine.

I made cupcakes instead of normal cakes.

For Festus I made the usual carrot cupcakes. The green dinosaur is on Festus's cupcake. With the tail up, it was perfect for him.

For us I made vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese icing. I'm the brown dinosaur and hubby is the yellow and blue one.


We had a great day with pizza, cupcakes, 2 long walks, all 3 of us, and lots of laughs.

Wales

On 14th it was my birthday, so we made a road-trip to Wales. Festus waited in the car while we were visiting the castle.

After the castle we took a different route to Chester and we stopped near Llyn Ogwen lake. We saw a path and we thought it's ok to go up... it wasn't :)

This is the higher point that we reached.

With a nice view of the lake.

But the path was from wet stones that we could not see from the beginning. Festus was running up and down the rocks and I thought he will brake his legs...after he started running towards me I thought he will brake mine.

Anyway, we went back to the car with no incidents.


We stopped in a wood to let Festus play.





Hubby inflated a balloon so Festus could pay attention only to him as we went back in the car park.


The car park was in a remote aria, away from the traffic, so we didn't put the lead.

Our usual walk

On our morning walk we go to different roads, so this way Festus has the opportunity to "discover" new places. 

Preparing for the photos:





Yeee!!! The winter is coming.

3rd birthday

Festus turned 3 on Friday and we've celebrated his birthday with cheesecake and a play in the park with his new football.

I couldn't resits not to buy a tie for him, it was near the birthday candle :)

He loved the candle. Probably he forgot that animals should be afraid of fire.


His new toy.




He managed to brake it, but he had a lot of fun with it.

Lap dog

Festus insists he is a lap dog, even if I tell him otherwise...

Carrot cupcakes

I love cupcakes! So, I started baking cupcakes for Festus too.

ingredients:
115g wholemeal flour
1 egg
2 medium carrots
2g baking powder
120 ml full fat milk
1 spoon of olive oil

I mix the flour with the baking powder and the grated carrot. I beat up the egg with the milk and the oil. I poured the eggs over the flour and I mix them together.
I put the dough in the muffin tray and I baked them for 15-20 minutes at medium heat. I have a silicone tray that is not sticky, so the muffins look great, without a paper wrap or a lot of oil.


Festus can't speck, but I think it's pretty obvious what he was thinking: "So?! I'm drooling...When can I eat this muffin?!"

Festus loves them. I make muffins for him with fruits (apple, plums, peaches) or vegetables (carrot, parsnip).
