It used to be that Blue Puppy was the one to share Toby’s misadventures.
Then today I found this…
…next to these two.
It looks like I am going to have to keep an eye on the whole toy box now.
It wasn’t me. Honest.
Oh, I forgot. The boys and I had an anniversary last week. On the 6th, my boys reached the milestone of hiding away in the museum for a whole year! In that time, no one has been able to see them or buy them. Gosh, what a great year it’s been.
If you would like to see what my two have been up to by themselves with no supervision, pick up a copy ofDream Our World. Inside, the boys visit the museum of their dreams and view the world of art from a canine perspective.
Despite the similarity of their names, The Tobester does not like The Toaster.
Mom, you can’t draw a car for crap!

While Toby’s bestie for trouble-making is Blue Puppy, his partner when it comes to food is Tiger. Tiger is actually a cheetah, but my family named the toy “Tiger”, and this is what I picture in my mind when they say it.
When Toby first started bringing me Tiger, I thought he wanted me to chase him. It took several tries before I realized that Toby was saying “Tiger is hungry too”. (D’oh!) So now after Toby eats he brings me Tiger, and then Tiger has his share.
Tiger waits patiently for his snack while Toby heads offby himself.
Toby had tried to steal a pair of pajama bottoms from the laundry to trade for food, but the more he pulled the more he closed the door on himself. Eventually he gave up and took a nap.

This is not my recipe. I found it on the internet and have no idea where.
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup sweet potato puree
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped
Mix dry ingredients. Cream butter, potato, sugar and egg. Mix with dry ingredients, then add pecans. Scoop 1” balls. Bake 400 degrees for 10 min until set. Can be glazed.
I have to use alternative ingredients, so my cookies are brown rice flour with coconut oil and very little sugar. To me, they remind me of Snickerdoodles in that they have a mild flavor and a medium texture (not hard, not soft). If you wanted to get adventurous and put mini chocolate chips in them, that would probably be good too!
If you try them, you’ll have to let me know how they turn out. 😊
