All The Bones In The Word

Published as a part of the “MattieDog Perspectives” series, this article share’s observations about life based on a dog’s perspective. Often joyful, whimsical, and reflective, the MattieDog Perspectives always contain a nugget or two of wisdom for you to contemplate as you travel along the journey of your life.  I hope you enjoy reading All the Bones in the World, from the MattieDog Perspectives series. ~ Rebecca Sanchez, Momma and Forever Servant to MattieDog “Just because you can eat all the bones, doesn’t mean you have to eat all the bones,” my momma said to me as she collected my little bowl of bone treats. I looked up at momma, watching her place my bowl full of treats on the counter, out of the way of my reach. Momma left the room, walking toward her home office. I sat on the cool tile floor, sniffing in the air, making little twitching movements with my nose. I looked up at where my bone treats were being kept…and slowly looked down the long hallway to where my momma was busy getting settled in for her day. I gave one last sniff upward in the direction of where momma had placed my bone treats – even though I couldn’t see them, I knew they were up there, on the counter, out of reach. Boy… if I had all the bones in the world I wouldn’t put up with this! With that I went out to the backyard, pushing my way through my doggy door, and flopped in to the doggy bed that my parents keep tucked close to the house, right outside of my door. *Kick, kick,...

I rolled over on my back, pushing my four paws upwards towards the sky, wriggling, I scooch next to my dadz. Momma dropped the blanket she was carrying down on to the cool grass, readying the area for them to sit down on. Spreading out on the bright yellow throw, momma began to unpack the whicker picnic basket while dadz looked down at me and gently rubbed my tummy. “Isn’t it glorious,” my dadz gleefully cheered, and used his free hand to help momma place their picnic goodies on the blanket. It was Saturday and the sun was starting to warm the day, glistening rays of golden light streamed down on our faces. It’s days like this that I just love – no real plan, just a calm easiness that transmits throughout the day….like strawberry jam spreading across a warm piece of toast. “I hope we just stay like this forever,” said momma, “I hope things never change.” Slowly I rolled over to lay on my tummy. Resting my chin on the lawn, with my back legs stretched out behind me. I was enjoying the freedoms that doing nothing affords you. Momma and dadz’s voices drifted past me, carried along by the gentle breezes. I heard momma say how she...
Farmers Market Recipe and Tote Tails Give Away

Farmers Market Recipe and Tote Tails Give Away

One of the coolest things a dog can do with his or her human? Go to the farmers market! Farmers markets are social – I go there and see my pals, dogs from the park where we often visit. The coolest thing about farmers markets? Eating goodies, a variety of dog-safe fruits and veggies that give me good nutrition to be all the good dog that I can be! Hee hee hee… well, or as momma puts it, “as good as you can be!” So, yup, I went to the farmers market, got some goodies; and I have have a recipe to share, along with a Tote Tails animal-themed canvas bag give away for you! Here’s a tip about going to a farmers market- when you go you have to fill your arms with goodies so you want to make sure to: 1. Know what you are going for! You don’t want to buy things you don’t need, but you want to make sure you got what you went there for; and 2. Bring a strong bag to carry all your goodies! It’s best to have a bag made out of breathable, washable material. Preferably an all natural material, not plastic – because plastic takes approximately 450 years to break down – compare that to canvas which takes one (1) year. Good for the earth – good for you! So what did we get? Organic goodies galore: blueberries, black berries, granola, sweet potatoes, a variety of veggies, as well as wild Pacific sardines. Well, you know my momma and dadz are vegan, so why the sardines? For me! That’s right, us dogs get some...
