Check out this interesting story we found which tells you how you can make a real difference in the lives of some doggies whose pet parents need to learn how to take better care of them:

Pet Valentines

We thought it would be fun to start out with Valentine ideas for your pets. Here is an article about fun things to do with your dog for Valentine's Day. This article, from last year (but still relevant!) focuses upon how a new friend from the animal shelter makes a wonderful Valentine's Day gift for the whole family. If you have the finances and space to accommodate an additional pet, please remember that the shelters are always full to overflowing with animals that would love to be a part of your family!

Here’s a great idea coming up in Hollywood:

How cool is this? We found a doggie who was born with a heart-shaped marking. Just for you!

Red Velvet Pupcakes

Adapted from Kaboose.com
Red velvet is all the rage in the world of cupcakes these days. So why not try these crimson-hued beauties on your best friend? Beet juice gives them their color, an whole-wheat flour gives them fiber. The cottage cheese icing helps make these trendy treats a balanced meal.
  • 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

  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese

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. Spoon batter into muffin cups to three-quarters full and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into a cupcake comes out clean. Remove cupcakes from the pan and cool on a rack.
  5. In the bowl of a food processor, puree cottage cheese until smooth, about 30 seconds. Keep frosting refrigerated until cupcakes are completely cool. Frost and serve.

Hi, my name is Annette Filecci. I am a Miami native, one of the few! I have been pet-sitting in the Hollywood and Hallandale area for the past several years now, and I couldn't think of a better job for me. I love animals and have almost always had a pet around, from birds to fish to dogs, cats - even worms and snails - so I am very experienced with all kinds of pets!

I am married with three children and we have lived in East Hollywood for the past decade.

For more information about our services please click here. We are insured and bonded, and have references, as well as many happy clients.
