What a week

Notes from S&S, Odie Sanchez

Is it the weekend yet?

Here is what has been happening in the week that was:

Monday: What a busy start to the week. I arrived at work a little dis-heartened becuase my foster dog Jedi had still not been adopted. Taking matters in to my own hands I phoned around everyone I knew who may be interested in the worlds nicest dog before getting a phone call from the lovely Lisa who I had been chatting to all year in the hope I could find her a new dog for her family. She came out to the shelter with her kids and her partner Sean, (who is also the co-host of 102.9 Hot Tomato’s breakfast show). I am fairly certain it was love at first sight. They took Jedi home late Monday afternoon and I have been getting facebook updates about his progress ever since. I look forward to hearing the adventures of newly named JED on the radio in the future.

Monday also saw our new keyrings arriving to S&S HQ! Don’t they look great? Buy yours by emailing: sausageandsanchez@gmail.com

Tuesday: What a day Tuesday was. Tuesday saw our longest resident Greyhound Hugo find his forever home! The entire shelter stopped to say goodbye to this beautiful boy and we were all so happy that he would never spend another night in a kennel.. His new owner intends on showering him with love and affection.We have lots of Greyhounds waiting for their forever homes. Some of which I have written about here

Farewell mate!! – We will miss you!!

Tuesday was also the day I was reunited with two of the little Rotti pups who I spent the night awake with a few weeks ago bottle feeding every two hours. They are now five weeks old and will spend the next 3 weeks living at my place getting bigger and fatter..

Check out their video they are sooo cute! Han’s has his hands full teaching them who’s boss!

Wednesday: Puppy central! I got to work to find that Jack & Rosie the Border Collie pups our photographer Jane had on foster are ready to be desexed and put up for adoption. These guys will be great playmates for a family that are able to spend time running around the backyard or a farm with them. They are so much fun!

Keeping on top of all the Sausage & Sanchez orders I went home and got to work on a new coat for a little Dachshund named Molly. Her new Strawberries & Creme coat looks just fabulous on Hans Sausage. (Although he did not seem to impressed in his new pink attire).

Thursday: Today I checked up on the Sharpei Mum who gave birth at our shelter to 7 little puppies. They will all need to go out on foster with their mumma to grow big and strong. They are so tiny and we think they are crossed with a Staffy. She is such a good mum.

Look out for tomorrow’s aritcle where I will post lots of new pix of animals waiting for their forever homes. It’s been a busy week!

A Day in the Big Blue

Hans Sausage, Odie Sanchez

What a glorious weekend!!! Having recently purchased a new boat from friends who are sadly leaving us for the grey skys of Melbourne we decided to spend the day on the water with family seeing what our new pontoon boat could do.

Hans Sausage and Odie Sanchez are often seen cruising the canals of the Gold Coast but it isn’t every day they go across the seaway in the big waves.. They coped quite well which was a relief to me because quite frankly I didn’t want to be spending my Sunday cleaning up puppy spew in our new craft. Check out our photos below:

Tina, James and my sister Breanna

My love and my Hans Sausage

Anchor Down  – Hans loves the water and will not sit still when boating. He is always bouncing around from one side to the other, tail wagging, nose sniffing and ears flying in the wind. funniest sight ever!

Ever Since Hans was little he has been out on the water – Hare are a couple of my favourite photos of him growing up on the big blue.

Han’s first life jacket.

In the Ski Boat

Watching his dad wakeboarding

Odie is more the fashionista. He is quite happy to be laying back watching everyone do their thing. He does love boating apparal though – Don’t you just love his collar?!

Here is Odie after we took him for a little ride on our Jet Ski. He LOVED IT!

Happy FUNDAY SUNDAY 🙂

Hans works out

Hans Sausage, Notes from S&S, Uncategorized

My New Years resolutions this year was to be more creative and to get fit.. In April I started Sausage & Sanchez and I am so proud of what has become and so thankful to everyone’s support along the way. Especially those of you that have bought the S&S products.

The get fit side of my new years resolution is a work in progress and I have had so much fun pushing my body to achieve the strong healthy body I have always longed for. It is amazing how when you really want something the universe has a way of making it happen for you. (I will explain what I mean more below).

The year started out great. On the third of January I started Bikram Yoga at Mermaid Beach Thanks to good old SCOOPON I was able to try it out for a month unlimited for $50. I have always been pretty flexible and loved how challenging Bikram was. It was such a great escape and even though I left looking like a hot tomato and constantly soaked my car seat with sweat on the drive home, (I purchased a moped to avoid my car smelling like a garbage truck). I truly loved it.

For those of you that don’t know Bikram yoga is synthesised from traditional Hatha Yoga, runs for 90 minutes and consists of a set series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. Sound easy? Here’ the kicker, it is practiced in a hot room where it is not uncommon for the thermostat to read 40 degrees Celsius.. YUK I hear you say. Well yes, it certainly does take some getting used to.

In the month I averaged 4 classes a week and I finished up with glowing skin and lots more energy. I could feel my body getting more toned but was not losing any weight nor losing any centremetres. I could feel myself getting bored as the movements in each class are always the same and 90minutes is a looooooooooooong time to spend in a hot room in the middle of Summer. So after a brief encounter with BIKRAM himself I thought it time to leave on a high and try something else.

Enter ESSENCE OF LIVING.

I L.O.V.E this place. Pilates Barre being my favourite. Again thank you Universe for the 21 day living social deal where I got to try unlimited classes, (and boy did I ever). I think I went every day for 21 days and then signed up again for a 3 month pass. The studios are beautiful and there are fresh flowers brought in weekly. You can even finish your class with a complimentary Apple to give you a quick boost of energy. Check out their blog for some awesome recipes.

If you haven’t tried Pilates Barre it was started by a Russian Ballet Dancer who developed a protocol for her own rehab after a serious spinal injury in the 1940’s. It integrates fat-burning interval training with muscle shaping isometrics to quickly and safely reshape the entire body. It uses a ballet barre, a yoga mat and hand weights  and boy does it help you find muscles you never knew existed.   This workout also requires mental focus which is great on the weekend when you want to block out work, and things you ‘have to do’ floating into your head.

With all this Yoga and Pilates I felt great and very elongated. I loved the chance to meditate and try new movements and to shut out the world for an hour. But I thought it was time to boost up the cardio and try something a little more ‘hard core’ and once again as soon as I asked the Universe provided.

“Congratulations Brooke you are the lucky winner of a 12 week challenger boot camp at Urban Babes“. OMG I think I have found my work out calling.

URBAN BABES

OMG, OMG, OMG, OMG OMG This is the best thing ever!

Urban Babes is about females who want to empower themselves, get fitter and improve their bodies by becoming stronger and more toned and I did just that. in 12 weeks I lost 26cm off of my body! Our trainer Revie is amazing and designs high intensity workouts that really get results. (I also love her because she owns a Sausage dog named Peach). I have met some great girls here and have never felt fitter. I am a convert!

The Babes. (I’m second from the right).

With all this energy and exercise on the brain I thought it only natural to make Hans Sausage a gym sweater. It is so cute, made from fleecy bulldog print he is snug as a bug and comfy as can be. I think I should change his name to Rocky he looks so tough.

You can order one for your pooch for just $11 by emailing brooke@sausageandsanchez.com

Thank you Universe for helping me stick to my goals and achieve so much in the last 7 months. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store.

Are you sticking to your NY resolution?

Han’s Sausage & his blue balls

Hans Sausage, Notes from S&S, Uncategorized

I was tinkering around today and thought I would get a little creative and pull apart an old blanket that was stating to fade. Han’s is obsessed with squeaky toys and so I set about inventing something that would keep him busy and that wouldn’t be destroyed in 2 minutes flat. I think the results were pretty impressive and Hans loves it!

For those of you who like to recycle as well… Here is what I did…

 

What you will need

Old blanket (see below)
Squeaker
Filling
Sewing Machine
Needle & thread
Crazy Dachshund

Old Blanket – I loved this one because it was a knit and Han’s teeth can penetrate it without ripping SUCCESS!!

Step 1: Cut out circle shape

Step 2: Sew both pieces together

Step 3: fill with stuffing

Step 4: Insert squeaker

Step 5: Hand stitch closed

Step 6: Give to your pooch and watch them try to destroy it.

Got Fans? S&S sure do!
