**Guest Post by Ava Baradel**

This is a guest post by my daughter who LOVES dogs.  You know the phrase “You always want what you can’t have”?  Well, that is what is happening in our house.  She really wants a dog but me, AKA Mean Mom, refuses.  So, instead, I have created a dog-crazy daughter!!  She hears me talk about blogging and decided that she wanted to blog about dogs so this is her first blog post.  The recipes were taken from a book called I Love Puppies that was compiled by Tammi Solzano.  FullSizeRender

Here is a picture of what I found in her book bag.  Along with all these books was a small notebook that she was taking notes in so she could learn all about dogs.

Happy Reading!
