Dog book signing and Thanksgiving picnic planned for Saturday • Long Beach Post News

“Gone are the days of locking the family dog ​​in the bedroom with a boring bowl of brown kibble during the party,” says Cable.

Katy Cable started her career as a teenage actress. As Kathryn Britton, she starred in films such as Back to the Future and Tales from Darkness and appeared in many commercials. She lives in Long Beach with her husband, Rick, and has a grown daughter and stepdaughter. A diagnosis of Hashimoto’s disease, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid gland, caused Cable to radically change his diet. She found she could safely feed and enjoy the healthy food she made for herself with Olive, her rescue, whom she found abandoned on the streets, sick, thin and scared to death. Olive is now neither of these, especially thin.

Out of that came Cable’s cottage industry of helping people keep their dogs healthy and happy. His blog and show The Weekly Runt have enough articles and videos to feast your eyes on one of Cable’s unashamedly obsessing hats: dog health, safety and travel tips, breed facts, how-to videos, nutrition tips, party ideas and tips for your own dog. anything to inspire your love for. The Weekly Runt tapped Kabel to be the spokesperson for Nulo pet food.

A friend suggested that Kabel compile a book of her recipes and party ideas, and so Kathy Kabel’s Fun with Your Puppy was born. Available at regular outlets, the book includes healthy recipes like Pumpkin Spice Latte, Barkaritas, Red Velvet Pupcakes and Pupsghetti; tips for treating common canine ailments such as fleas, allergies and upset stomachs; and of course paws, which are themed for each month and include menus, decorations, invitations, and everything a pawty planner needs.

“I have all the tools I need to throw epic parties with dogs,” Cable said.

A rifle in the pages of “Katy Cable’s Party with Your Pup” will show that parties, if anything, involve humans. It’s all for the dog and you’re welcome to trot along. The recipes use ingredients that are good for dogs and people – pumpkin, pumpkin, turkey, carob. Pumpkin Spice Latte is made with pumpkin puree, an excellent ingredient for gut health in cats and dogs; camel milk (you can get over the hill of relative rarity – Long Beach is a camel milk desert – buy from Woofpak Kitchen) or goat milk kefir, available at Trader Joe’s; and turmeric and cinnamon, which Cable uses for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Recipes invite people to change their taste.

“Add a shot of your favorite espresso and a dash of coconut whipped cream to your latte and voila! You both have a delicious, healthy drink!” Cable said. You can certainly change the Barkaritas as well.

Each party belongs to a certain month. October, November, December, February and July all have their own holidays, but August, which has none, had no effect on Cable.

“August is a great time to have a Bark-to-School meeting – maybe try some fun training tips and tricks with everyone’s dogs and serve up some favorite treats in the treat box,” she said.

What about cats?

“I’m all for bringing cats into the fun, but they probably won’t enjoy that kind of thing and would rather be left alone with a cat and a scratching post,” Cable said. Olive herself doesn’t like parties, crowds or sharing the limelight with other dogs, but Cable said she is a foodie and uses bananas in most of her recipes, including some with bananas.

Although the book focuses on dogs, the odd cat can also be a social animal. For example, @sunglass cat has been to more parties and events than most people and loves it! Bennie the Cat usually made party appearances in his honor as well. Photo courtesy of Katy Cable

To celebrate the release of “Katy Cable’s Party with Your Pup,” Cable teamed up with Barnes & Noble to host an in-store Pupsgiving Book-Signing Party. A few surprise “canine celebrities” will be in attendance for photos. Proceeds from a raffle for various prizes will benefit several local animal shelters. Full details are below Fur balls of fun! Space is limited, so make the life of your party a good time. And look at those Barcaritas!

I cowboy. I am a 3 year old mastiff mix and although I love my foster family, I hope Santa will find me a family, a real family. I’m a big one at 100 pounds, but don’t let that fool you – I’m a lap dog in my foster family’s home! I love hand rubs, and even though I’m excited to see people when I get home, I don’t jump all over them, so they appreciate it! I like to stay up late in the mornings, like any fun guest – do we have anything in common? If so, visit K9 Kismet and fill out an application. Image K9 Courtesy of Kismet

hello! I Mookie (ID#A681198) and I am a 4 year old boy. I love what passes for winter weather here. I’m kind of shy and a wallflower at parties until it’s time to go back to the kennel and then I don’t want to leave the party! Heck, the kennel is not the place for me! I need a house and a stove – if the stove fails, I’ll settle for a wall heater. If you are familiar with husky characteristics, come pick me up! Photo courtesy of LBACS volunteer Dee Glick
