|Nika (left) and Misha (right) go urban mushing with Ritalin Boy|
Talk about doggie and Ritalin Boy nirvana. The pups can run at high speed while RB gets an adrenalin rush. I have been helping with the training from the sidelines. I get the fur kids in their harnesses, help hitch them up, walk alongside the Diggler, help with commands and untangling the fur kids when they don't show the best cooperation. Yes, they have a long way to go on learning to cooperate. Once they are better trained, I will hop on board the Diggler.

|Chard with butternut squash cream|
1 bunch of chard
1 cup cooked butternut squash
salt and pepper
1 T. olive oil
Optional: 1/2 onion, sliced
1/4 cup lite coconut milk
Chop your chard into bite-sized pieces. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Saute chard (with optional onion) until tender. Add a bit of water or broth, if desired. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Make your butternut cream. Put squash with coconut milk (or other non-dairy milk) in a food processor. Process until smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
To serve, plate up chard and top with desired amount of squash cream. (Save the butternut squash skins as a treat for the hungry pooches.)
