We are learning the in's and out's of dog care. Ye-gads, I had to post a poison list on the fridge! I'm hoping the Sunday trip to The Boulevard Market had no lasting effects, as Pierre found and promptly ate a piece of Pannetone with raisins, a few stray coffee beans as well as many crumbs of cheese and salame, 2 toothpicks and some artificial greenery. Yes, I technically stopped in to work...that did not happen. But who can work with all that cuteness staring at you?
Happy Day Doggie Treats
- 2 cups whole wheat flour (you can use another type of flour if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1/3 cup peanut butter, chunky or smooth (I used smooth this time)
- 1 1/4 cups hot water
Mix all ingredients together until combined. Turn out onto floured surface and roll to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes (dog bone maybe?) and bake for about 20 minutes until browned and crunchy. I cut ours into small bites...but if you do larger biscuits (cookie size), you will need to add 8 minutes to baking time. I added the cheese right before rolling out and brushed mine with an egg wash to make them a bit shiny.
Hope you enjoy your next day off with a doggie too!
