With fall in full swing I have found that it’s my favorite time of year to my cooking on and in ‘pawtciular’, I love finding new recipes to make for Mia – our in-house pup. So, naturally when I came across this recipe via Rebecca’s blog ( Sugar & Soul ) and fellow doggy momma, I knew I just had to share it.
( Rebecca’s beloved pooch and fellow pupcake lover )
Mia, like all dachshunds, loves to feast on just about anything home-made and fresh made. Heck, this little beloved beast loves to feast period! So, cooking for her is not only fun but quite fulfilling too – and yes, pun intended. 😉
What I favor most about these pet-treats, is that these are really simple to make and are completely dog-safe. They are made with whole wheat flour, yogurt, apples, honey and peanut butter. The frosting on top is unsweetened whipped cream. So yummy for the tummy! Enjoy!
Come and dig this delightful animation discussing the science behind a dog’s sense of smell and how they use it to see the world around them.
You may have heard the expression that dogs ‘see with their noses.’ But these creature’s amazing nasal architecture actually reveals a whole world beyond what we can see. Take a moment to watch this TED-ED Original illustrate how a dog’s nose can smell the past, the future and even things that can’t be seen at all. Totally ‘pawsome!’
Perhaps one of the greatest ways to celebrate Valentine’s is to make a fun treat for that special love in your life; even if that special someone is a bit on the furry side. Yes, I’m speaking about our beloved pets. After all, who loves us like no other and who sees as their own personal Valentine each and every day?
So, whip on your chef’s hat and let’s prepare to make some easy, delicious and healthy treats for your dog found via Pretty Fluffy dog blog.
::PUPPY PEANUT BUTTER BALLS::
1/2 Cup Low Fat Milk
1 Cup Peanut Butter
3 Cups Rolled Oats
1. Combine the milk and peanut butter in a mixer until it forms a paste.
2. Add the oats 1/4 to 1/2 cup at a time ensuring they are fully coated and no dry spots form.
You will be left with a heavy mixture.
3. Scoop out bite sized pieces with a spoon and roll into little balls.
4. Place on a flat tray lined with baking paper.
5. Pop them in the fridge for one hour.
* Makes 25-30 treats.
* Treats can last up to 2 weeks stored in the fridge.
* Use a gentle pressure when rolling the balls. The mixture can be sticky and overly handling it can cause it to crumble.
* Milk can be substituted with other dairy free variations for dogs with allergies.
Our constant quest and thirst for new and fun animal themed tidbits has lead us to another very talented and inspiring illustrator: Michael Fleming. To freely view more of his work, please visit tweedlebop.com/blog.

So, if you happen to need a quick get away into a world where texture, color and creativity rule, his blog is a great place to start, sit…and stay.

Here is a delicious peanut butter biscuit recipe. Have you ever met a dog who doesn’t like peanut butter? Neither have we. That’s why these peanut butter dog biscuits with molasses is a great. Even though dogs don’t need added sugar to make their treats delicious, molasses is a natural choice. Usually, ingredients found in commercial biscuits are typically called natural if they are processed to the least amount. However, unlike refined sugar, blackstrap molasses retains vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron. So, you can rest easy knowing that these home made dog biscuits will be fresh and healthy.
So, did you make this recipe? What was your experience? Did your dog gobble it up or take a polite sniff and walk away? Now don’t let Fido hog this recipe all up. Be sure to share this blog entry with other dog treat aficionados or better yet, please send in your pics showing your favorite pooch eating these delicious treats to share with our dog blog audience. We’d sure love to show em’ off! <3
