Survivor Football!

Mommy and Daddy run a "suicide football league" with lots of friends and family.  Obviously, we have our own team called "M&O picks".  Every week we are to pick a team that we think will win and if they do then we move on to the following week.  Once you pick a team you can not pick them again for the rest of the season.  Last week Mommy and Daddy both picked New England Patriots to win (along with lots of others from the league) and they lost.  So now they are out and it's up to us to keep our family in the running for the big winnings at the end.  Here is how we do it:
1. Mommy and Daddy narrow it down to three teams for us to pick from and write them down

2. They put them in a bowl and we wait to pick
3. Owen and I take turns picking a team each week-this week it was my turn!
3. We get a treat for our hard work and we watch the game and cheer!

Wish us luck that we picked a winner!

Mommy made us a special breakfast. Pawcakes. The doggy version of pancakes. 
First the ingredients

Mix them up to make the batter

Cook 'em up!
A short stack for each of us

Trying to steal some early!
Finally, time to eat!
Looking to see if there is more...
"Could we have these every morning Mommy?"
After all, Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! 
Here is the recipe for those of you that want to have your own short stack:
1 3/4 cup unbleached all purpose or whole wheat flour
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup milk, skim or whole
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 eggshells, crushed or ground (optional)
Combine flour, cornmeal, baking soda and powder.
Combine remaining ingredients in another bowl.  Mix wet and dry ingredients until combined (careful not to overmix) and cook as you would regular pancakes.  Cool to room temperature. Enjoy!
**batter lasts in refrigerator for about 2 days**

Football Sundays Are Back!

And as much as we love them-Cheering for our team is exhausting! 

At least our EAGLES were able to come out with a win!  Resting up for next Sunday's game!
Hope everyone enjoyed the return of football today :)

Owen's Gotcha Day!

Yesterday was my "Gotcha Day"!  Even though it was raining for most of the day, Mommy and Daddy tried to make it as special as possible for me.  The day was filled with cuddling, playing and lots and lots of treats (since I'm more of a treat guy than a toy man)!  Check it out!
Maddy and I running around the pool!

Cuddling with my Daddy!
A special, yummy dinner for Maddy and I to celebrate the day!
Lots of yummy treats!
So Good!
It was a wonderful way of remembering how 2 years ago I came here to be a foster dog and became part of the family!
