Everything I Did Last Sunday

Hi :)  I went to three different events
#1 The Running of the Bulldogs
#2 Garlic Festival
#3 Pie Championship

I took our french bulldog, Lulu, and our friend’s pug, Petunia, to the The Running of the Bulldogs :) It was a really hot day, and Lulu and Petunia were already tired before the race had even started so they didn’t participate :(

After that, we went to Garlic Festival because we heard they would be  serving garlic ice cream. I thought it would be perfect for Joe’s “Weird Food Purchase of the Day” video segment, but they were sold out by the time we got there :(

Next was the Pie Festival. I was so exhausted by this point but was really glad I attended this event. It cost only $5 and we got to try many delicious unique pies! I may make some pie for the next year’s festival :)!

Banana Pancakes for Dogs わんちゃん用のバナナパンケーキのレシピ

I posted this recipe on Instagram before but I made a video as well :)
You can store these pancakes in the refrigerator for up to three days or freeze them for up to a month.


1 banana  バナナ1本
1 egg    卵1個
coconut oil ココナッツオイル 適量
(I sometimes add 2 Tbsp old-fashioned oatmeal and1/8 tsp cinnamon powder for this recipe.)

If you add a touch of baking powder, dog parents can enjoy it too :)

I mainly post my dogs and food pictures on my Instagram. :-D

Package from Tokyo 東京に住んでいる姉から荷物が届きました^^

I sent birthday gifts to my sister in Tokyo last month. And now she sent me some goodies in return :)


My dogs and I were really happy with the dog treats she chose.



Especially these cookies. They are very popular. Even I liked them, even though the dog treat . I may ask my sis to send me more :9 haha



Dog Food Update :3 わんちゃんのご飯

I’ve been reading a few dog cookbooks. Each book has a different philosophy but they are very interesting :D I’m still researching, so if you have any tips or books you could recommend, please let me know :)


I always give my dogs some meat, pumpkin and flaxseed oil when I feed them.  The flaxseed oil I’m using is a supplement made for dogs that our vet recommended for Bubba’s joint pain. They seems to love the flavor.  Kill one bird with two stones :D yay

私が毎日みんなにあげているものは、お肉、かぼちゃペースト、亜麻仁油です。亜麻仁油は犬用に開発されたサプリメントの様なもので、先生に勧められて使いはじめました。美味しいみたいで、嫌いな野菜等にかけると、喜んで食べてくれます。一石二鳥だね🐶 人にも良いみたいですが、私はあんまり好きじゃなかったです。

I sometimes feed them a lot of veggies. Sometimes, not so much… It’s depends on what I have in the refrigerator.

お野菜を沢山あげる日もあれば、そうでない日もあったり...笑 冷蔵庫にあるお野菜等をトッピングしているのでちゃんとは決まっていません。もっとしっかりとした献立を作れる様にがんばろうと思います^^

Here are some dishes I made for my kids :) Since I’m Japanese, I’m having fun with making kawaii (cute) dishes ;p

  • Raw lean beef…protein, Vitamin B, zinc, iron
  • Pumpkin puree…dietary fiber, Beta-carotene. Good for vision. 
  • green peas…Vitamins B1, B2, VB6, C, Beta-carotene, dietary fiber. Cook well to make it easy to digest.
  • tomatoes…Vitamins A, C, lycopene, Beta-carotene, iodine. Antioxidant and good for their lungs. If owner smokes a lot, it may good for your dog. Tomato cools the body so it’s good for hot summer.
  • dried sardines…mineral, calcium, iron, Vitamin D, DHA, EPA. My dogs love them :)
  • black sesame…calcium, Vitamin E. Good for anti-aging.
  • chicken liver…Vitamin A, iron. Good for vision and skin, but don’t feed them too much.
  • flaxseed oil for dog…omega-3, omega-6. Good for skin, coat, heat health, joints and immune support and allergy prevention.
  • cookie from a pet shop :)

My pug, Bubba, eats whatever I give him but the other dogs are a little pickier. Lulu and Jelly don’t like raw tomato but they seems to like dried sardines and flaxseed oil.
