Dear Friends, 
We at ATI wish you all a 2012 filled with good health and much love.

We wish you a year filled with great promise for your personal lives as well as your dogs.
We hope for friendship and harmony around the world. We have a small breed so friendship and
co-operation are imperative to its longevity, as well
as, its continued good health.
We hope ATI continues to inspire you, as you
inspire us. We hope we continue to enrich your
lives because you enrich our lives.
We send our love to your Aussies – blue and tan,
red and sandy, with natural tails or docked tails,
in every country.
To Aussies who are loved pets, show dogs, performance dogs or all of the above, we send you our very best and will do the very best for you.
May your holiday season be joyful. May your life be touched by someone who cares.  May you have the ability to reach out and touch someone who could use your help this holiday season.
May God bless all of us and our little Aussies,
Pamela Levy

Christmas Cheese-a-licious Cookies 

Click Here


Published Dec 19th, 2006

By Renée


Cheese-a-licious cookies are excellent as a party appetizer or as dog training treats. Because of the “rich” ingredients used in this recipe, you might prefer to reserve this treat for a special occasion, like Christmas. Hence the name for this recipe Christmas Cheese-a-licious Cookies, aka C.C.C.!

With  it only being days away from Christmas Eve, you still have plenty of time to perfect this recipe to your liking or your dog’s. For your dog’s health reasons, you might want to opt out almonds (about 411 calories), otherwise it is as good as presented here-darn delicious!


Warning: Be prepared for second baking. Some human guests will eat them without your knowing. So don’t blame the dogs for eating too fast. Dogs aren’t the only greedy ones, you know!


Servings: 18 C.C.Cookies


  • *120 ml  of low-fat Cheddar cheese, shredded  – ½ cup
  • *120 ml of low-fat cottage cheese  –  ½ cup
  • *30 ml of canola oil  –  2 tbsp
  • *470 ml of whole wheat flour  – 2 cups
  • *180 ml of almonds, chopped. ¾ cups Optional,
  •                                  (NEVER substitute almonds with macadamia nuts)
  • *60 ml of water  – 1/4 cup


  1.  Preheat oven at 190 degrees C /375 degrees F
  2.  Mix cheeses, flour, oil, and almonds thoroughly.
  3.  Add water and stir until dough forms a ball.
  4.  Divide dough into 18 pieces, rolling each into a ball and placing on greased  cookie sheet.
  5.  Use a fork to press down on each ball.
  6.  Bake for 30 minutes or until brown at the edges.
  7.  Either serve them when cool or chill them overnight in  the refrigerator for next  day serving.

Special note:

It doesn’t have to be 18 cookies if you want them to be smaller or bigger. If you have a chubby dog, just make the cookies much smaller. If your dog has lactose intolerance, limit his intake. If your dog is in excellent health, go ahead and double up the cheese. This means double the fun. If you fear your human guests will consume way too much for your liking, you could use a dog bone cookie cutter instead of the traditional cookie shape. This might ward off some guests. This method used to work for me but ever since friends and family discovered my “recipe secrets”, they could care less whatever shape my food is, they just eat.


* You may wish to consult with your veterinarian before feeding new foods.

My Dogs Live Here

My dogs live here, they’re here to stay.

You don’t like pets, be on your way.

They share my home, my food, my space;

This is their home, this is their place.

You will find dog hair on the floor,

They will alert you’re at the door.

They may request a little pat;

A simple “no” will settle that.

It gripes me when I hear you say,

“Just how is it you live this way?”

They smell, they shed, they’re in the way.”

Who asked you? Is all I can say.

They love me more than anyone,

My voice is like the rising sun;

They merely have to hear me say,

“C’mon guys, time to go and play.”

Then tails wag and faces grin,

They bounce and hop and make a din.

They never say “no time for you;”

They’re always there, to GO and DO.

And if I’m sad? They’re by my side.

And if I’m mad? They circle wide.

And if I laugh, they laugh with me;

They understand; they always see.

So once again, I say to you,

Come visit me, but know this, too.

My dogs live here, they’re here to stay.

You don’t like pets, be on your way.

They share my home, my food, my space;

This is their home, this is their place.

I’m a Forever Dog

Not An “Until” Dog.

I’m not an “until you get bored with me” dog.

I’m not an “until you find a boyfriend” dog.

I’m not an “until you have a baby” dog.

I’m not and “until you have to move” dog.

I’m not an “until you have no time for me” dog.

I’m not an “until I get sick and cost me money” dog.

I’m a forever dog.

If you can’t give me forever

I’m not your dog.
