My stomach is starting to get a bit knotted thinking about not seeing Jackson for that long. As you probably know by now, I’m obsessed with that dog. I have truly never loved something so much. I came home from running errands the other day and every time I let Jackson out of his kennel, I sit on the floor with him and rub his belly and tell him how wonderful he is while he wiggles his butt with excitement. Well, I was doing my normal loving act and the boyfriend came home with one of his friends and I didn’t notice them until they pushed the bedroom door open and stared at me like I was a complete, utter weirdo. Which I am, but it’s still a bit humiliating. I know other people do the same thing. They have to. How can you not be as excited as the dog is every time you see them? I think it’s normal. Anywho, I’m going to miss the crap out of him.

Speaking of Jackson, he’s developed an odd and unattractive habit: he barks at little kids. He’s not around them a ton, but he still sees them at the gym and has played with them in the past with no issue. Then one day, he just started barking at them and backing away like he doesn’t like them. I don’t get it. My first thought is that he doesn’t like how small they are and kids tend to pet dogs in a non fun way. But I don’t really know. I’m hoping this habit goes away with time and being around more kids, but have any of you had to deal with this annoying quality in your dog? I need advice. Or maybe a dog whisperer.

OMG. They have chocolate cinnamon toast crunch cereal nowadays. I’m not going to even act like that doesn’t sound amazing.

    Lovely shake. Quite perfect after a long run.

  2. Robin says:

    Great smoothie! I loved it. This will be an addition to my recipe box. I added almond and coconut milk in mine.

    This may be a weird idea but you know how dogs can sense illness? I wonder if dogs can sense kids with poor nutrition and inflamed guts. Or even the aggression and adrenaline surges from violent video games?? Maybe the dog is communicating that he feels safer at home where things are healthier and more chill. I don’t know. I have dog who was abused( I think) and I was never able to train her fear of strangers out of her. We let her in our own back yard and when my son walks her if a kid wants to pet her my son has to say NO! we also put her in a separate room when people come over. It makes me pretty nervous sometimes as she actually did nip the vet tech once.

    Do you ever swap a meal with a smoothie with formulx powder? I work out at 7:30pm every night and sometimes I just want something light that I can have instead of an actual meal. I saw you wrote that you’ll have this as a snack, so I’m just curious!

      sometimes i do for breakfast because i’m not always very hungry in the morning. problem is, I’m hungry pretty early. i prefer to have it more as a snack than an actual meal replacement.

    Really getting into the smoothie thing lately, as our kitchen is out of order (my awesome husband is remodeling it). This is another GREAT recipe!! Thank you!!!
