Dogs on Thursday

This week's Dogs on Thursday is all about sweet Tara! Five years ago yesterday, my dad, sister and I drove to Princeton to pick up Tara. Around here, March 17th is no longer St. Patrick's Day...it is St. Tara's Day! Little Tara had been traveling for three days, making her way from Arkansas to New Jersey, and we had no idea what to expect. We only saw one blurry picture of this little sweetie on the American Brittany Rescue website, but what a shock when we saw her in person! Skinny, scrawny, trembling...we fell instantly in love with that pathetic little creature.
Here is a recent picture of Tattie. What a difference a little love (and some nutritious food) makes!
Speaking of nutritious food, here is a picture of their St. Tara's Day breakfast:

See those little yellow squares? That's lemon cake. The dogs have recently discovered their love for lemon cake (thanks to an episode of Cooper pulling it off of the counter and sharing it with his sisters). So, as a little treat, I put some on their breakfast to kind of spice it up. I know, lemon cake on top of turkey meatloaf sounds gross, but the babes didn't think so! Here is Tara saying "Stop taking pictures and put the food bowls on the floor or as Dog as my witness I will go for your jugular vein."

No, lemon cake on turkey meatloaf does not sound yummy, but hey, to each his/her own. Dogs eat all kinds of stuff I would turn my nose up at.

How beautiful Miss Tara is. And how lucky to have a family that loves her.

Happy gotcha day, Tara!

Sissy will be blogging her own, new food passion later today...

She looks like a different dog.What a nice lady you are to take in babes who so desperately need a safe loving home. Happy Tara Day to the whole family, but I think everyday is Tara Day.

Hey, a twist of lemon makes almost anything better. Almost anything, not so sure Turkey. LOL!
