Our Summer Newsletter
Welcome to our Summer Newsletter.
It feels as though t-shirt weather is almost upon us at last. The warmer weather has given us a welcome break from the ‘wet dog smell’ in our homes and in our cars…! How I envy those of you who live near the sea and have dogs that run and play on the beach. Mine are all absolute water babies but only get to swim in muddy rivers!
Due to a shoulder injury 2015 had a late start for Woofs Treats. In March I was at British Utility Show (BUBA) Show and the UK Toydog Show in Stafford which was fantastic. Then, at the Kennel Club in Stoneleigh the Wolfhound Society Show and the elegant Flatcoats Shows where I also met some friendly owners of very handsome Rotties. Always a pleasure to see all those beautiful dogs and of course their ‘hoomans’ too!
I was at the Hearing Dogs for the Deaf Event in Droitwich on 12th April – what a fab day it was and so well organised too. Unfortunately, my beautiful white gazebo that so many of you know well, flew off with a strong gust of wind and landed in a pile and it was (almost!) all part of the fun!
For the coming summer months, I am looking forward to new shows and some that we’ve been at previously. Dates for your diary, please come and join us at: All About Dogs in Newark on 25th and 26th April. Paws in the Buffery on Monday 4th May. We will also be at the Birmingham National Dog Show in Stafford on 7th 8th 9th 10th May. Please keep an eye on our Facebook Page for our other shows.
Some of your doggies have already tried our treats and I have had really loud ‘woof woofs’ from them telling me they loved them. I’ve even had Ruby the pretty little Caviller dance for her treats for me! Here at Woofs we are passionate about dogs and we believe that the best is only just good enough for your furry friends.
You probably don’t need to be reminded but please don’t leave your dogs unattended in hot cars over the summer as some breeds of dogs can die within 20 minutes from dehydration and heatstroke so please, please, please, take care of the furry babes.
The link for those of you who asked to see the Woofs Treats article in The Daily Mirror:
Daisy's Fish Fingers
50g Plain Flour
150g Rolled Oats
1 Tin Tuna Chunks 200g in Oil
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Whole Eggs – including Shells
1 Teaspoon Dried Thyme – optional
1 Teaspoon Parsley - optional
A really droolicious recipe for you to try for your furry friends:
Place the tuna, olive oil and broken egg into a blender and blitz either smooth or not so smoothly.
Weigh the flour, cornflour and oats and place in a dry bowl. Then add the other ingredients to form into dough.
If it isn’t wet enough, add a little water, tiny bit by tiny bit.
Roll out the dough and cut into small finger shapes (or any other shape that your doggie prefers) Place on baking tray.
Bake until golden brown and hard for approximately 25 minutes at 160c.
If kept in a cool place and stored in a biscuit tin they will keep for approximately two weeks
Cuddles to your fur babies. Looking forward to catching up with you both at some of our shows.
