As you bake your trays of holiday cookies this year, make some homemade dog treats too! Don’t forget about your favorite furry friend at Christmas! In my house our dogs always had their own little stockings hung over the mantle filled with little treats. These little treats only require three ingredients and your pups will go crazy for them!

Speaking of pups, I have to share this event that Ben and I went to last month….Corgi Con. Every year San Francisco hosts an event called Corgi Con. It is literally an entire day dedicated to corgis, their owners, and lookie loos who can’t resist (us).

The iconic windmills seemed to watch over the event with a smile! Parking is impossible, but luckily the long walk to the car is along the gorgeous beach. I’m not complaining!
