Everyone is an Irish Setter come March 17th! Try this St. Patty’s day themed treat based off the flavors of the traditional Irish-American dinner of corned beef and cabbage, these treats are much healthier for your dog than the human version though.
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon parsley
1 tablespoon grated carrots
2 tablespoons flaxseed oil
½ cup low-sodium beef broth (if your pooch has an allergy to beef use a veggie broth instead)
Shamrock cookie cutter
1. Mix flour, carrots and parsley together
2. Add flaxseed oil, mix
3. Add broth; mix until all dry ingredients are moistened
4. Roll dough out on floured surface to a 1/8” thick sheet
5. Cut into shamrock shape using a cookie cutter
7. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
8. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes
Makes about 10-15 cookies, depending on size of your shamrock cookie cutter.
Be sure to let the treats cool thoroughly before giving to your doggie. These make great party favors for St. Patrick’s Day guests, or just to spoil your own Irish-loving pup!
Adventure Beach Run Diary
February 17 – Today I (David) got to do the beach run! it was so much fun. I had the dogs in Black. Sydney and Selkie were swimming like olympians and Ebony got her paws wet. She didn’t want to ruin her feathers in her hair.
February 18 – Torrential downfall rain today but that did not stop the ABR crew! Miss Ruby was in fine form trying to get Mr Nacho to chase her and on several occasions he almost caught her too. Full of beans every one of them, Toby and Selkie found lots of smelly things on the beach. Its was great to see the tide out so far, spring/summer is on it’s way!
February 20 – Today was the most beautiful spring day! Zorro was full and beans and played the chase game with both Lucy & Ruby. Ebony even joined in on the fun and let Rio (the great dane) chase her. Everyone was splashing around in the surf. Zorro after a long chase would plop himself down in the ocean and lay there in the tide for 2 mins. Selkie and Ruby found a giant stick and played tug of war with it until Mr Zorro joined in and won it over.
February 21 – OMG another gorgeous day in Vancouver!!! Miss Lucy was crazy in love with Matty today, she chased him, she pawed him, she jumped all over him barking “Play with me” or “I am going to make you play with me!” and he was in love with her. I have a bunch of pictures below of the two of them going nuts together! even little Miss Ebony joined in on the fun. It must have been a very windy night before, there were lots of dead crabs all over the beach and I really worked my recall with each doggy getting them to please drop those CRABS!!!!! 9 out of 10 success rate!!

February 17 - Zorro enjoyed a little playtime with Joey before his big walk. Quite the pair! Little Stevie had the zoomies in daycare. It was so cute watching her run around. Dior and Miles were pretending to be Irish Leprechauns and played tricks on everybody! Spooner, Joey and Maggie were lighting up the place playing tag in the front pen. Sammy did such a great job in daycare and on the walks today. She is really coming out of her beautiful shell! Katie was all snuggles today, same with Ella. It was Ella’s first day and all she wanted was love from the daycare staff.
February 18 - It was pouring rain today so most of the pups were feeling pretty lovey dovey because of the wetness! Some of them had cuddle piles like Jessie, Jaime, Mia, and Mackenzie and others played until they couldn’t play anymore (London, Leo, Smudge, Ocho and Molly). Joey and ZuZu were very cute this morning. After a solid half hour of running around the daycare, they were just mouthing each other of the floor. Dior’s face was covered in Prim’s slobber. Yummy. There were only four big dogs today so the back pen and the middle pen were able to be open together, making the dogs super happy they could run around even more! Jaime finished off the day as leader of the pack. She did so well on her walk! You go girl!
February 19 – Ella was super cute playing with her shadow in the sun today. Tucker and Frankie had alot of playing business to attend to with Smudge and MacDuffy played an epic game of tag. Miles played teacher/ coach with Laika. Knowing if he played with her for an hour she would more than likely sleep for an hour. Very smart Miles!
February 20 - Toby and Elio played their very unique play style after the morning walk…it is so hard not to laugh at them. Lucky Tucker found a fantastic spot on top of the tiny crate. He didnt fit but he didnt mind because he was in the sun! Charlie Yorkie was a little firecracker this morning on his walk- he was leaving everyone else in his dust! Miss Jaime and Miss Jessie were giving out sweet kisses. How nice of them. Joey and Bella had a great time playing a round of tag…as per usual.
February 21 – We have George the slobbery handsome Saint Bernard in today. He is having so much fun with the other big dogs like Soul and Jimmy! ZuZu and Joey were (obviously) inseparable today. Diesel got the zoomies and Dior had no idea what to do with him! We saw a nice play session with Bobby and Calypso, very nice to see Bobby play. Davis, Bella, Miko and Teddy were all about snuggles. They just couldn’t resist the charm of the daycare staff. Lucy (wiener) was the leader of the pack today on the afternoon walk. She took her job very seriously!

Pacific Spirit Park Walk Diary
February 17 – There was a rematch in the Dirt Challenge from last week. Reigning Champion Zorro was thoroughly defeated this morning by Challenger Jimmy, who took gold by ROLLING in a mud puddle. I didn’t know where the mud stopped and Jimmy began. Jersey and Sniper parkoured in pairs in the afternoon. Jabway and Matt wrestled their way down the trail and over deadfall.
February 18 – Oh boy, did we get wet this morning. Georgie and Olive are the best playmates and chased each other all over the forest. Joey was a super trooper and may have looked like the saddest, wettest dog, if it weren’t for his wagging tail! Rosie was going to practice her long-line today, so she can be off leash, but Sniper wasn’t ready to see her all on her own, so he insisted on carrying the end of her line in his mouth. I got video.
February 19 – Happy Birthday London! We treated her to a PSP walk today and she had a blast with JJ and Dakota. Selkie and Ebony guest starred from the Beach Run. It was lovely to have them. Inge did some rolling in the afternoon and enjoyed the sunny, warm, coat-free day! Little Lucy got coos from passer-bys.
February 20 – We had more lovely sun today. Joey the Havanese spent his morning chasing Stanley. Georgie was pretty laid back, loping after Dakota on his hunt for sticks. Leo and Inge had a riot this afternoon, running and bucking like horses! Jabway did some swimming while Rufus did his own thing today.
February 21 – It was a high energy morning. Olive, Scout, Ruby, JJ and Henry partied it up in the sunshine. Chloe found something stinky to roll in, much to her delight. Inge and Jabway made new trails in the forest. Bailey did more running than usual, maybe he’s on a new exercise regime!
