These are the tools and workhorses that help me in the kitchen. My must haves and a few of my wants!

Kirby, being the discerning culinary Canine Cuisine Chef, loves to whip up tasty, healthy meals and treats in the kitchen. He knows what he likes, and doesn't like, as he puts that amazing doggie nose to work sniffing out delectable tastes and aromas.
A pinch of this, a cup of that until it's just right. Of course he relies on his beloved sidekick, his newly painted orange Kitchenaid mixer, to easily whip his food choices into shape.
He knows and appreciates that it saves his paws from having to mi... read more »
1 year 2 weeks 3 days oldSo, there's been a bit of a setback in getting the new pup. As I've been struggling with a migraine on and off for a week or so now, I sent her an email instead of phoning the breeder again. Email did seem to be her preferred contact method on her website anyway. I didn't anticipate a problem, I had offered to put a deposit on the pup, so she knew I really wanted one of them. In my experience many breeders are rather poor about returning emails, so I rather assumed she had got th... read more »
It was a pretty sunny day not to go out and have some fun. Just in time for the most awaited dog show in Cavite. It was a no-brainer; Blogger Bark just had to be there! The Cavite Canine Club All Breed Dog Show was held at Island Cove (Kawit, Cavite) last July 8, 2012.A few meters away from the event, you can almost hear all sorts of barking from the tiniest voices to the modulated deep ones. The moment we walked in to the event’s area, it was heaven! All breeds in all sizes were there, waiting for their... read more »

Unfortunately Knightley was completelyrecovered from his ... read more »
In 2004, equine influenza (H3N8 aka equine2), a disease which was 1st recognized in horses in 1963 and created an epidemic in the Miami area, which quickly spread to the other continents. There have been other outbreaks in 1964, 1965, 1978 and 1981. Since the 1980's, it has diverged into 2 forms in the horse population and it has crossed species and now infects dogs. The dog form has mutated to be recognized as H3N8 canine influenza. Grey2K USA (Grey2K) is attempting to use this quickly mutating influenz... read more »
So, I continue not to be well at all and we are doing minimal training unfortunately. When things get back on track I think I'm going to go right back to Level 1 and refresh all our skills from the beginning. Some parts of Level 2 especially are getting a little rusty from lack of use because we have been focusing so hard - pretty much only on retrieve stuff and other bits of Level 3 (all from Sue Ailsby's Training Levels... following the "Training Levels" tab up the top of this page if you are intereste... read more »
Well, I have been dabbling with recipes for a while now posting the successful ones here. It just came to my attention that I have been leaving a few important things out. To fix that I have dedicated a page called 'Tips Tricks' under Kirby's Kitchen for the rest of the story so to speak.
I'll have instructions on how to prepare certain ingredients I use all the time, tools of the trade that I find indispensable, and whatever else comes to mind that I think will be useful for your endeavors into the ... read more »
I have been making these frozen dog treats for Knightley for the last week or so, inspired by other ones I have seen online. It has been particularly warm weather... summer is really starting here downunder, and I think he has appreciated the cold treats, especially because he is on the very end of teething and his teeth are just finishing coming in. I put him in his crate to eat these, so that he can't make a mess. He really enjoys them and I know that he is getting hydrated too. Any left over stock I k... read more »
