So, I’ve been delinquent and quite absent since May. How bad am I??! Just goes to show how busy life has been around here this summer…
I now have a part-time job with the Kansas Turnpike.
We put in a small garden and I canned many jars of Red Pickles from our surplus cucumber crop. I also picked strawberries in June from a local farm and made strawberry jam.
I saved a small kitten from certain death in June, on one of my trips home from Ohio. CiCi is now a bonafide member of our household and she is destined to be our #1 entertainer. She is quite hilarious to watch, esp when she is interacting with our australian shepherds. She plays differently with each one. With Tori, she will hide under the bed and bat at her… however, she will chase Trixie around the bedroom, trying to catch her tail. CiCi’s trademark maneuver is to take a flying leap off our bed, both front paws outstretched, as she flies toward one of the dogs! I really need to get a Flip video recorder so I can share some of the laughter with everyone.
We also acquired 5 guinea keets 7 weeks ago, and have been renovating our chicken coop for them.
Aside from all that, I’m in the middle of changing up the Lazy G website too. I’ve removed some of the dog treats but I’ve kept the most popular one, Trixie’s Cheesers. It’s definitely popular around here. I’ll be doing testing on some new varieties and if they turn out the way I hope, then I’ll be posting them for sale.
Winter is coming, and that means more indoor time. More time to bake dog treats and human cookies!
I’ll try to stay in touch, and let you know as soon as some of my updates are realized.
In the meantime, I hope everyone is enjoying the fabulous autumn we are having!!

I’ve been very remiss in posting updates here. However, rest assured the Lazy G is a hoppin’ place… in fact, that’s why I’m not up-to-date here! It’s been a little TOO hoppin’. Pupster treats are still being baked and sent out to our fans (and friends), and the I Heart You cookies have been a big hit with all who have ordered them. In fact, I am whipping up a fresh batch of yummy cookies to take with me to a picnic and bonfire tonight.
And I will leave y’all with this thought from Erma Bombeck, which sums up my busy days at the ranch quite nicely….
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything you gave me.

If a Dog’s Prayers Were Answered, Bones Would Rain from the Sky by Suzanne Clothier
Ah yes, another fun giveaway! This one is in honor of today’s holiday, International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. I kid you not. One of my blog readers alerted me to this little known factoid. In fact, it’s listed on a web page entitled Bizarre February Holidays. I would have to agree, it IS rather bizarre. Nowadays, they seem to have christened every day of the year as a holiday for something. Here’s another interesting link about today’s special day.
And let’s get one thing straight here about my all-natural dog treats…. YES, humans can eat them. My treats are in all likelihood more healthy than that snickerdoodle cookie you’re about to eat… and I have it straight from some of my customers that they have tasted my treats, and they particularly find the peanut butter ones rather yummy.
Back to our giveaway: This is a marvelous book, not so much a dog training manual or commentary on canine behavior; its primary focus is on communication with our furry kids. I highly recommend this read for any dog owner. Please go to Amazon and check out the high praises of this book by its many readers.
I would love the opportunity to pass this informative book along to one of my many dog owner friends… simply leave a comment here and I’ll draw a winner using Randomizer.org on Sunday, February 28 at 12 noon Central time. Earn extra points if you tweet, facebook or post on your blog about my book giveaway…. earn an extra 5 points by subscribing to the Lazy G blog! And some of you know how unpredictable I can be…sometimes I include extra goodies when I send a winner their package!
Feel free to browse my Lazy G Ranch website while you’re here. There’s some real yummy stuff here — both for you and your four-legged friend!

Just a quick post to let y’all know that Tori’s Breath Mints are even mint-ier now! I found a fantastic spice source, and I have the freshest mint possible. The pups love ‘em all the same ~ the whole house smells like mint while they’re baking. Now we’ll find out if they help poor Tori even more… that gal is plagued with the worst doggie breath!
Oh so minty now!
