Make your own Dog Treats
I love dogs, especially my dear best friend Frank. Frank likes treats and I have recently started to seriously learn to cook. This seems like a match made in doggy heaven and it is! Frank loves his home-made dog treats! I have a great time making them for him. One batch makes many treats, and I tend to make a few flavors at a time so I give treats away to EVERYONE! my neighbors, my friends and even my yoga students! I can’t give them to all my friends on the interwebs (tho i have recently shipped some to a few “lucky dogs!”) BUT to all of you- I give to you some pics, and a recipe! Enjoy making your furry friends happy with lovin’ from the oven.
