Big licks to you! My name is Suzuki aka Suzi. I am 8 years old and have lived with my Mum and Dad since I was 6 weeks old! I have a younger sister named Tahlia, a younger brother named Scooby Doo and a rabbit brother named Brandon. I am a water baby, I love the beach and my favourite past time is boogey boarding. I love the colour purple and lots of attention! I am a show off and love to compete in different competitions. I was in the WA finals for Pet Fashion Week in 2006 and I won Mandurah's Cutest Pet in 2007. I am also featured in the 2009 Dog A Day Calendar for the RSPCA as Miss 5th December. I have an older brother named Jerry-Lee who I dont see anymore... Mum says he went to the Rainbow Bridge and I will see him again one day.

Mummy Makes It Monday - Fruity Furballs

Due to Mummy forgeting some things when she went hunting, she has moved next weeks recipe of Fruity Furballs furward to this week and will be making New Bark Cheesecake next week.

You will need:
150gr (5 oz) carob chips or carob bar broken into pieces (Mummy used dog chocolate)
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
250gr (8 oz) naturally dried apricots, apple rings and bananas (non sulphur varieties)
50gr (2 oz) blanched almonds, chopped

1. Place the carob in a heatproof glass bowl. Set the bowl over a saucepan of lightly simmering water and heat until the carob has melted. (Mummy did it in the microwave). Stir in the vanilla extract.

Dip each piece of fruit into the carob so half of the fruit is coated.

Then dip into chopped almonds and place on greaseproof paper.
Leave to set fur 20 minutes. Transfer to an airtight container and chill until hard. Fruity Furballs will keep fur up to 4 weeks in the refridgerator.

Mummy used less ingrediants when she made this because she wanted to see if we would like it first... WE DID!

Bone Appetite :)
I would like to take a moment to send our thoughts and love to Bogart and his Mummy Lulu, they lost their beloved Klaus and could really use your fur love right now.
Big licks to you

we heard the very sad news about Klaus - so hard to put into words the sorrow. We send them our best.

The fruity furballs look wonderful, but Mom said she is afraid she would eat all the apricots befoe she got to step one:-)

But we think we'll take our chances and paw her to give it a try.

Woos, the OP Pack

Hi, Suzuki - Nice to meet you! Thanks for stopping by Tess and Jazz's blog. We LOVED your boogey board photo! It's pretty hard for us to learn that skill when we don't have an ocean here in Pennsylvania, but we are going to the beach on vacation in May, so maybe we can try then!

Your blog is a lot of fun. We're going to make your fruity furballs to share with some of our agility friends this weekend! We're looking forward to following yours and Tahlia and Scooby Doo's adventures!
