Our dogs are priceless, aren’t they? I’m so thankful to God for making animals to keep us company. They are so sweet and cute and sometimes downright funny!
The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too. – Samuel Butler, Notebooks, 1912
We’d do anything for our best friend. Have you ever thought of baking your own dog biscuits? These are delicious and nutritious! Well, I assume they are delicious from the response I get when I bake them!
3 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup of Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup of Shredded Cheese
1/2 Cup of unsweetened Apple Sauce
1 Cup of any of the following: 1 can of salmon or tuna, drained; shredded beef, chicken, turkey or liver; ground meat or ground turkey or chicken
3 Eggs, beaten
Mix all ingredients together. You can roll out the mixture and using a cookie shape, cut out a size suitable for your dog. Or you can drop by spoonfuls on a baking sheet. Warm oven to 350 degrees and bake. Check after 10 minutes. You may want a softer cookie or leave in another 5-10 minutes for a crispier cookie. Cool on a rack. Put cookies in a container and refrigerate some and freeze the rest. You can take them out of the freezer as needed. They are good for 2-3 weeks in the refrigerator (if your dog doesn’t finish them before that).
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face. – Ben Williams
And then there’s bath time – oh boy.
From the dog’s point of view, his master is an elongated and abnormally cunning dog. – Mabel Louise Robinson
It’s surprising what ingredients are used in our dog’s treats and bones. At least when I make them, there’s no doubt about the nutritional value my dog is getting. Pet food is finally beginning to be a little more healthy, but there’s nothing quite like homemade dog treats! Wink! 😉
