Update: 7-19-10. Today was Sake’s last day with us. This past weekend was so rough; he was clear with his wishes and asked that we have the honor of putting him down. Anyone who has done this knows the heavy heart we have, yet I can say with all honesty that pets are very lucky we can do this for them. He is no longer struggling. RIP Sake 1994 – 2010.

Sake, our 15-year-old black pug, gets very hot. And the weather just went bonkers in the past two days, suddenly it is summer-hot here. His constant panting tells me it is time to make a favorite treat, Pug-sicles.
Unfortunately, he loves them so much that after about 10 minutes of licking, I have to take it away to avoid rubbing his tongue raw. And he also knows where it goes – back into the freezer — so unless I sneak it without him seeing, we then endure excessive barking at the fridge. At least he cools down a bit before getting hot-headed again.
- 1 can low-salt chicken broth
- 1 can water
- 1/4 cup dry kibble dog food
Stir together broth, water and kibble, then distribute equally between several plastic containers (choose the size based on your freezer or dog). Cover and freeze. Serve in a skid-proof dish.
