We have a name for my house around these parts, and it’s The McBrawley Home for Wayward Wiener Dogs. Along with our two chickens and one majestic cat, Sean and I are constantly wrangling our two dachshunds: Noodle and Lucy. And we wouldn’t have it any other way. Sometimes they bark at the UPS man or chase the chickens around the yard and whatnot, but other times I’ll catch them curled up together on the couch or posing for pictures perfectly (ahem, I’m looking at you Lucy) and my heart just melts. Those are the moments that I love to treat them to something delicious.

Just like my yia yia still to this day makes me her signature Greek soup recipe when I’m home and in need of something extra special and crave worthy, I like to treat my two pups to something that’s premium, hearty and made with love. Kitchen-inspired Milo’s Kitchen® dog treats are made with real chicken as the number one ingredient, they’re high in protein and free of artificial flavors —you better believe these wiener dogs went crazy for them! But I wanted to help share our love of the kitchen and take the #TreatingTuesday experience to the next level, so I decided to dress up a simple mason jar in which to store some delicious chicken meatball treats in a way that blends perfectly with my kitchen decor and is pretty enough to keep on the counter. It’s a great way to take treating and bonding in the kitchen to a new, DIY level. Giving Noodle and Lucy treats is one of my favorite things to do – it makes all of us happy. I especially love to treat them in the kitchen, which is the heart of our home and where memories are made.

Now I just have to explain to Lucy that she can’t actually eat at the table with us every day…

These days our adventures are a bit limited because of my leg, but there’s one outdoor activity that I can still do: sailing! We especially love to go out on the boat with the dogs during the summer to catch the sunset over the Olympics. When Stella & Chewy’s reached out to share how we go above and beyond for our pups, I knew exactly the stories I wanted to share with you guys.

Ever since I got home from my accident and figured out how to get back into the pace of day-to-day life, I’ve noticed one resounding theme: a deep and true appreciation for the simple things in life. The truth is that this injury truly shook me to my core and has now encouraged me to re-evaluate everything. Partially this introspection is due to how hard it is for me to do physical things, but also because of the sheer emotion involved in healing. I’m choosing to remain positive though, which essentially means that I am all about enjoying life’s little moments these days. One moment that immediately comes to mind is the day I got home from the hospital and was reunited with our dogs! Today I partnered with K9 Natural to share that story, plus how I’m enriching the dogs’ meals to keep them happy and healthy.

I always make sure my sweet dachshunds are fed with the very best food — raw, organic, and nutritious like @stellaandchewys Meal Mixers. Find out more on Jojotastic.com #MealMixerChallenge #StellaandChewys #ad

Noodle is basically the other editor here on the blog, but did you know that there are now two members of the long-n-low crew?? When I met Sean, my boyfriend, we realized we both had dachshunds. Now they’ve formed quite the little gang! I absolutely love having two of them to walk, snuggle, and play with — truly, they make those everyday moments just so much better. To keep them happy and healthy, we believe in feeding them only the best and making sure they eat raw. One of our favorite brands is Stella & Chewy’s, so today I’m thrilled to share that we’ve partnered to tell you more about their Meal Mixers (and share some super cute photos of the dogs!).
