My 11th Gotcha Day

Yes furrends, it do be 11 years ago on this furry day that mom came and got me out of the big bad scary shelter.
Scared baby Shawnee fresh out of the shelter on 7/11/2001.
My sisses and I always get special noms fur my Gotcha Day celebrashuns and this year the recipe comes courtesy of my good furrend Zackary Rabbit and his most pawsome cooking show.
Psssst - put your ears rilly close to the monitor coz I has to whisper sumpin to you.  That be Zachary with the chef's hat on.  He do be a stuffie.  So be careful talking about stufficide, stuffie guts and *gasp* washing stuffies in the wash machine.  He do be furry sensitive about that.  OK, you can back away now.

So anyways, Zachary has a pawsome show about making noms.  Most of them is peeple noms but he did do a special dog treat show just in time fur MY Gotcha Day.  Click here to see the Special Edition Dog Treats episode.

This is wot be in the noms - go to Zachary's page fur visuals on putting them togedder and stuffs:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 5 tablespoons oats
  • 1 egg
Checking to be sure mom got the right stuffs.
Wowser, mom got the good stuff.  She do be a vegebullatarian and nefur buys meats but she did this one time speshull just fur me.
Waddaya think?  Do it be looking like Zackary Rabbit's?  So far so good, I think.  I is drooling alreddy.
Now fur the long, long, long wait... Then...
Oh. My. Dog.  Total delishussness!
Yes, that be drool on my chin, BOL.
