In case you aren’t following me on Instagram, we got a new puppy over the weekend!
We weren’t planning on adopting a pup. Well, we’d briefly talked about looking for a Boxer because my husband loves them. He even had a name picked out: Boxanne.
You gotta kind of sing it.
But then we spent a ridiculous amount of time watching our neighbor’s boxer jump on their trampoline and then sprint across their yard and throw itself at their door. Like, over and over again. Every day.
And we decided that Penelope was more than enough crazy for our house.
But anyway, like every dedicated crazy dog lady, one of the first things I did when we moved here was follow all the local rescue groups on Facebook. Just in case. You never know when a dog will speak to your soul.
And now we have another dog.
Her name is Sofia. Like the princess. She’s a mini schnauzer/dachshund mix which is very cutely nicknamed Schnoxie.
Bad news for Sofia though! She’s gonna have to wait until she’s a little older to have this treat I’m sharing today.
We go through boxes and boxes of doggy ice cream every summer. I always give the pups some after walks or after the dog park because who doesn’t like ice cream on a hot day?
But that stuff is expensive. Like, super expensive. I think a box of 4 was over 4 bucks last time I bought some. I spent around that on ingredients for this Homemade Peanut Butter Doggy Ice Cream (really just yogurt since I already keep the rest of the stuff on hand) and I have at least 20 little cups of ice cream in my freezer now.
The dogs LOVE it. And I won’t lie, I tried it before I froze it and it was pretty tasty.
