Round 'n Round We Go

Circles from Classic Hound on Vimeo.

What else are the doggy's and kiddos to do when there is 2 feet of hard snow and frigid temperatures outside? I couldn't resist grabbing the video camera when I caught them all doing this!

Valentine Dog Treats


My Heart Beets For You Treats

Adapted from's Red Velvet Pupcakes

I just loved making these dog treats. I did actually make the Red Velvet Pupcakes from Kaboose, but didn't like the cottage cheese frosting it called for, because it didn't turn out like anything that remotely resembled frosting. And since I had my heart set on making heart shaped cookies anyway, I decided to add more flour and make the cupcakes into cookie biscuits. Beet juice gives them their color, and whole-wheat flour gives them fiber.


* 1/4 cup canola oil
* 1 cup applesauce
* 1/3 cup beet puree or fresh beet juice
* 1 and 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder

Cooking Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a six-cup muffin tin with muffin cups.

  2. In a large bowl whisk together oil, applesauce and beet puree.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Slowly stir flour mixture into the wet ingredients.

  4. Knead for 3 minutes. Roll out dough to 1/4" and use the cookie cutter of your choice to cut out cookies. Place on prepared cookie sheet (either use parchment paper or grease sheet) and bake 14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a cookie comes out clean. Remove cookies from the pan and cool on a rack.


Here's what Dewey thought of the cookies:

Congratulations to our February winner, Millie!

Millie, a greyhound from North Caroline is stunning in her Squirrel Patrol Red martingale collar! We'd really like to know how Millie found herself in so much snow, maybe she ran all the way up here to Maine for a day? Oh, and one more thing! Millie's mum, Libby, has a super cool blog that you should check out.

Hugs & Kisses Valentine Collars

Can you believe Valentine's day is right around the corner?! As the big V day approaches, feast your eyes on our new Valentine collars! I'd like to know who doesn't love a good hug & kiss now and then?! And who doesn't want to dress their hound up in perfect Valentine style this February 14th? These pink and red ensembles are glitter "kissed" all over, which is a subtle and gorgeous touch to them both. We think their a match made in heaven! And I can't decide which one I like better for my Valentine, a kiss or a hug?
