|Kona doesn't just eat undies. Lots of things make him lick his lips throughout the story.|
|A big ol' cup o' goodness|
Both our previous pups LOVED our smoothies. Bailey, our beagle, would take any chance she could to try and get her head in the blender (we make HUGE smoothies so I get a big glass full, and the hubs has whatever is left and drinks it straight from the blender).

|"Okay, yeah... it's not bad."|
I wish I'd been quicker with my camera, because at first she looked at me like I'd offered her ... wait, what's something gross that a dog won't eat?? Dogs love to eat gross things... hmm... Something not gross, but still bad... maybe arsenic... yeah, she looked at me like I'd offered her arsenic. Or butterless popcorn (she hates that). Anyway, after a little coaxing she finally realized that smoothies are good!
She's not so convinced of their deliciousness that she'll come beg for some, or try to steal some out of the blender, but she'll at least join us in a little bit if I pour it in her bowl.
Remember - if you make your own smoothies and want to share a little with your pup, go easy on the dairy since dogs' tummies don't do well with dairy. (That's a kind of mischief you want to steer clear of.) For our smoothies we include: 1/2 a frozen banana (makes them good and creamy!), soy or almond milk, whatever fruit we have handy (usually frozen organic mixed berries, cherries, or peaches), cherry juice (or whatever juice we have handy - OJ is nice w/ peaches), some veggies (raw kale &/or beets) and we usually add a scoop of vanilla or chocolate protein powder. (We have a Vitamix, so it makes easy work of the hard raw beets.) Yum!!
Have you ever shared a smoothie with your pup? Happy Monday Mischief!
