And Then Came the Last Days of Cafe...

Part of the reason I've been so selfish (hehe) and kept Lippe for so long is that I wanted him here to help with the huge task of cooking our last dinner document our last day at the cafe.

Before I go any further, I want to clarify: we had a blast at our cafe. And by the end were a rip roaring success. I've had many people express condolences and give advice when they hear of our closing, but we didn't close because we failed...we closed because we did SO well that we outgrew our tiny tiny kitchen! BOL! In all honesty, the "cafe" is actually a coffee shop and was never meant for cooking and serving food. But it was a grand experiment and who knows...maybe we'll be inviting Lippe back someday for the Grand Opening of our restaurant at a new location. ;)

Now, to the pics!

As part of our final day, we opted to put on a big invitation-only customer appreciation dinner for our favorite, most loyal customers. We chose a big Chinese dinner!

Lippe got to work folding (and tasting) fortune cookies:

After that hard work, he took a break to eat some sesame chicken:

Then it got intense! Time to fill & fold approximately one squillion crab wontons:

But the reward is worth it! Check out that spread!

Lippe having a hard time deciding what to put on his plate first:

Then, after everyone's gone home, it's time to pack up and clean, clean, CLEAN. Goodbye, tiny kitchen:

Goodbye, tiny coffee shop! Thanks for the memories!

Giveaway Extravaganza!

Girl has some Dogswell Mellow Mutt and Dogswell Happy Heart chicken jerky dog treats in her store that are about to expire! So I thought, hey, how about I give them to my friends?

If you would like a bag, leave a comment letting me know which you'd like and I'll send a bag to you!

For my cat pals out there, I do have some Catswell Vitakitty chicken treats that are ToPu & Kenshin approved...they are slightly out of date but if anyone would like them, let me know!

Odds & Ends

So after reading about Mario's teeth, I was wondering: do any of you out there have dental chews you'd recommend?

And totally unrelated to my stinky breath:
I know times are hard for everyone right now and it seems like the pleas for charity and donations increase every day. That said, I'd like to give you links to a friend of mine who's having a bit of a hard time. He has a children's book and some corresponding merchandise. The book is about the responsibility of owning a pet, which is why I'm pitching it sharing it with my anipal furriends. :)

Have you all seen @MarioDaCat's blog?

Our very own Mario, a bona fide celeb!


I have some of the best teddy friends a dog could ask for. As you know from my posts, I also have teddies that live with me. Well, this morning I was reading the latest issue of Fauxgue and in the Literature>Poetry section there were some of the sweetest quotes about teddy bears and I was reminded of all my teddy friends (well, all my friends of the plush variety, really). I would copy & paste them all but you really need to just check out Fauxgue and please share it with all your friends!
