A Pretty Happy Thanksgiving

RACHEL WILSON

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  Now aside from all the feasting, football and family frolics, let me make sure you’re up to speed with “What To Wear”  for the start of this Thanksgiving holiday period. 

What’s tending right now on the dog-walk are chunky hand knits and metallic jackets.  It’s a good job I’ve got my paws on the pulse this season as you can find both these items for sale on the Miss Teddy website!  Just ensure that your human is also on fashion point!

 

We Reap What We Sew 

Which is why my togs for dogs are always stitched to perfection!

However, there’s never a truer sentence than that and it’s always good to know that you’ve put your best foot forward in the world in everything you do because what goes around comes around  and you don’t want karma running over your dogma! 

Thanksgiving started way back in the 1600’s when the Pilgrims from England sailed over on the Mayflower to America and feasted on their harvest with the local natives.  It’s now evolved into a holiday time for sharing, caring and counting our blessings along with a good old Thanksgiving dinner of roast turkey and pumpkin pie.  

When it comes to your doggy sharing this feast with you I have found some fabulous homemade nutritious treats you can make from turkey and sweet potato to pumpkin that are safe and scrumptious for your little scamp.  Be sure to take a look at these fabulous videos which will give you step by step instructions on how to cater for your canine at Thanksgiving.

  

Eye Can Take You To Happiness 

Looking after your pooch keeps their tail wagging but in turn your little fluff ball is doing more for you than you might imagine.  A study back in 2009 by Miho Nagasawa of Azabu University in Japan, found that a persons level of oxytocin was dramatically increased after interacting with their four legged friend.  And, the only interaction was to stare longingly into their eyes! Those who stared for longest received a bigger dose of oxytocin and took their happy feelings into orbit! 

Though dogs come from wolves they are different in that they are willing to make eye contact which separates them from their ancestors.  So, stare away with your little tyke and be thankful for the bond a man and his best friend share with each other this Thanksgiving.

 

I Feel Pretty, Oh So Pretty! 

Obviously!

But, here’s another thing to be grateful for:  It is scientifically proven that a dog makes you more attractive.  Now, I can understand that if you’re walking me in all my Miss Teddy finery because I’m Maltipoo gorgeous!  According to a study conducted by The Dogs Trust,  the largest animal welfare charity in the UK, owning a dog makes you far more attractive to the opposite sex! 

Time to forget Tinder and Bumble and all other manner of dating sites and get back to basics. Dress your doggy in a gorgeous gilet, matching collar and lead, and get yourself walking on the local park!  Not only can you be thankful for the fresh air and toned body you’re going to get, but you might just meet your hearts desire! Grrrr! 

Right, I must get back to black and prepare for the shopping spree sale!

Have a great Thanksgiving Thursday and be sure to check out our fabulous Black Friday deals tomorrow at the Miss Teddy website.

 

Blessings.

A Pooch Spin On Pumpkin

Trick or Treat?

I am the treat, darling!  So, on this “Hallows Eve” I have decided to share a few tricks with you my little pumpkins!

Truth be told, I’ve always been a bit of a fan of this winter squash. Primarily, because I just adore the colour orange - It’s a wardrobe ‘must have’ colour for spicing up an autumnal look and not going straight from dynamite to dreary. Maybe orange is the new black! 

And, this season, after a summer of “yes you look yummy” yellows, we will be witnessing a more burnt and earthy kind of orange which has “Hello, pumpkin squash” written all over it!  If that doesn’t have every Jack-o-lantern casting envious looks your way, then nothing will.

 

Food For Thought

As Glam Pooch of the Moment, I’m all about eating the right food so I look exquisite in my glamorous gowns; a girl has to look her best and shine from the inside out when in front of her adoring public and healthy eating is where it all starts. The only Goblin I want to see on Halloween is me gobbling on a tasty and beneficial pumpkin dish.

We all know about the delights of pumpkin pie and and a warming pumpkin soup but this squashedible fruit has exceptional benefits: It is high in vitamin A and C and antioxidants that fight off disease and boost immunity.  Get the Pow-Wow in your Bow-Wow!

 

Listen to the Experts

Like me! But the top producing squash grower, Sarah Frey who is known as the “pumpkin queen of America”, grows more pumpkins than anyone and her message is “cook not carve!” Think beyond the Jack o’ lantern and get into the kitchen with your squashes.

And waste not, want not, because every single part of a pumpkin is edible: the skin, leaves, flowers, pulp, seeds, and even the stem!  Roasted pumpkin seeds are great toasted and salted and used as a snack or added to breads or to garnish dishes.

It’s A Dogs Dinner!

Not only that, but pumpkin is very dog friendly!  Canned pumpkin is often recommended by vets as a dietary supplement for canines that are experiencing certain digestive ailments such as constipation, diarrhoea or hairballs!  Back in the old days, herbalists would use pumpkin remedies to rid you of worms!

I like to eat it pre cooked and mashed up with natural yoghurt and stuffed inside a Kong toy. This is wonderful to snack on whilst I’m reading my glossy magazines or watching Hollywood Hounds.  As an in-between-meals treat, dice it, bake it, cool it and doggy bag it up in your fridge for a bite sized binge beater.

 

Fur Mummies

It’s a well known fact that’ “If Mummy ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy”, and we have to look after our pet people. There’s a pumpkin pie recipe out there that takes it to the next level when it comes to human deliciousness and that is adding the well known and loved tipple, Fireball Cinnamon Whisky, to your pumpkin pie.  Warm the cockles of your humans heart and keep them smiling with this just dessert.   

Right, I must go and finish my Teddy pumpkin Pie before it turns into a carriage and whisks me off to a Halloween ball!  Be careful out there, and remember, dress it up!
