RECIPE: Lexi’s Famous Pupsicles

May 2, 2020

Dog Care Tech Lexi’s pupsicles are a fun treat that keeps our shelter dogs busy and happy. Try them with your pups!

You will need:

  • Cups (Lexi used plastic cups)
  • A Kong toy or tough toy. Our dogs really enjoy the rope toys!
  • Honest kitchen goat milk powder- The small tin will last you a while!
  • Shredded chicken/canned dog food
  • A spoonful of canned pumpkin puree (I add a pinch of cinnamon)


“Place the rope toy or Kong in the cup. In a bowl I combined the goat milk powder, pumpkin, and cinnamon with water. Then I poured this mixture into the cups, alternating layers with shredded chicken. It smelled like a Christmas dinner!

From there I put them in the freezer overnight. In the morning, I ran the cups under hot water to release the pupcicles from the mold.”

DJ: From Beach Buddy to Snowy Chicago

Upon our return to MHS, we gave DJ back to a volunteer who had an Australian accent (we didn’t catch his name). I told him I think we failed because I fell in love with DJ and felt like he was such a good match for us. The volunteer said “we called that a success” and told me I probably gave DJ the best day ever. This made me think why can’t I make every day “DJ’s Best Day Ever.” Then, we briefly discussed adoption and bribing him to the mainland with Tucker. We boarded our flight home to Chicago the next morning. I thought about, talked about and looked at pictures of DJ until I called MHS when they opened on Monday. I spoke with Kam who told me DJ was already part of the Wings of Aloha program. She was going to see what DJ’s options were.

The Tail of Two Cody’s

Then one day, another Cody called us. One all the way from the Pacific Northwest that felt they could help. Several months after the last of his senior dogs had passed he was ready for a new friend and was looking up “older hard to place shelter dogs”  online when Cody’s profile came up. After reading his Bio and watching his video on our website, Cody felt that he just might be the right home for Cody.  And boy was he!
