Beach Fun for Fido

August 7, 2013 | Things To Do

beachdogIt may be hot out during the day, but that doesn’t mean you and your furry bud can’t enjoy the beach together.  After all, the beach is the perfect place to get out tons of their energy and some of your own stress.  You can take a stroll down the beach in the evening and collect some shells, or toss a ball in the water for your dog to go fetch.  Always remember to bring lots of fresh water and a portable bowl for your pup and keep a close eye out that they aren’t drinking too much ocean water!

Also, always make sure you know the beach rules:

  • Folly Beach – Leashed dogs are allowed before 10am and after 6pm
  • Isle of Palms – Dogs must be leashed between 5am and 8am
  • Sullivan’s Island – Dogs are allowed off-leash from 5am to 10am in the off-leash areas (with a pet permit)

Hope you and your furry pal get a chance to go and relax by the waves this summer!

MollyMeet Molly – aka Doggy

Doggy is a teeny tiny bundle of joy that will make you smile every time you see her!  She loves to go on walks and check out all of the other critters – like turtles, frogs, and butterflies – that hang out by her house.  Don’t be fooled by her tiny legs, either, because she is lightening fast.  Her absolute favorite toy is a purple dragon and she will run anywhere to retrieve him.  Doggy is a great pup with a huge heart and she is always ready to snuggle up with you for some love!

crunchy-cat-treats-DS41Our kitties need some yummy treats, too!  This recipe is quite basic – just mix and bake – and it is filled with cat favorites.

  • 1 (5 oz) can tuna, no salt added and packed in water, drained
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 heaping tablespoon dried catnip

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with some parchment paper for your treats.  Add your drained tuna, oat flour, egg, olive oil and catnip together in a food processor and then blend until smooth, but thick.  Roll the dough into 1/2 teaspoon balls and put on your baking sheet.  Use a skewer or edge of a fork to press an X into each treat ball.  Bake the treats for 10 to 12 minutes until they are dried on tip and slightly browned.  Let them cool completely and then you’ve got some delicious treats for your kitty!  You can store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.

Check out the full recipe here and your cat will thank you!
