The Girls, a Raw Food Update, and Recent Adventures.

Hello all!

I have been extra busy with school and graduating and starting new jobs. The girls have also been busy and enjoying the time that they are able to spend together now that Matt and I are further apart.

Summer and Bijou are both eating OC Raw Dog and loving it! Summer now weighs over 50 pounds and looks amazing! She is still extremely muscular but now has a bit of fat on her as well. The fat balls are perfect for her and her fast metabolism. Bijou LOVES the patties and finishes them off in one swallow. She has lost over 10 pounds and looks happy and healthy. I started giving her tripe for dinners as she dropped below 30 pounds and that seems to be the trick to keeping her between 30-35 pounds. Perfect.

We have been feeding brewers yeast pills since Jan/Feb and their coats looks amazing. We also haven't found any fleas on them! Much better than last summer. We are still really careful as it doesn't really offer tick prevention but we have only found ticks when we go hiking. The girls are in great health and are probably two of the most spoiled dogs on the planet :)

Enough typing, here's some pictures from our adventures!

We have had such a wonderful summer so far and hope our friends are also enjoying theirs!! Much love from Bijou and Summer :)


  1. I love when our Braylon lays in our lap like in your last picture! Your dogs are spoiled, just as every dog deserves to be. Sounds like in your case being busy has been a great thing!

  2. Looks like you ARE having a great summer! That awesome diet I'll bet helps everybody stay cool and healthy too.

  3. Hello Sarah,

    My name's Tammy and I'm the Marketing Coordinator at I found your blog through Blog Paws and thought you might be interested in seeing a fun and engaging infographic we've created that focuses on dog safety during the hot summer months:

    If you like the infographic and want to share it with your readers please feel free to do so. The only thing we ask in return is that you link back to in someway from your post.
