Great post SkyEyz_7. This is a keeper. We have an 8 yr. old German Shep. that doesn’t think she’s a dog! At meal time or snack time for my kids, our dog (Nikki) thinks she’s a person too, and expects her fair share. Worse than that, my dad has taken her in his car when he has to make a trip to the hardware outlet or other such store…and she loves it. Sits up, as though she owns the seat…but, he takes her for ice cream! He gets himself a cone and Nikki a baby cone! Any wonder they are best of friends! So added to that little repetoire, is his regular pruchase of dog treats for her. Anytime she hears a bag rustle, or any noise from the kitchen…she thinks “that’s gotta be for me.” Don’t get me wrong…she’s a great pet…very possesive of our kids. And she isn’t allowed anywhere near the table when people are eating. She’s pretty good about that. But, with the cost of dog treats from the pet store…this is a prayer answered! I can’t wait to try the recipe. My only fear…after a batch is made, and if I ask my wife if there are any cookies, I’m afraid she’ll say “shake a paw!” :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Thanks again…and Nikki thanks you too! Regards,

B-man :wink: :smiley:

Your very welcome b-man . I hope she enjoys it as much as our dog does. Our dog Cody wont eat even the expensive treats i have spent lots of money on them only to have his nose turned up at it, but he does like these. I know what you mean about ice cream Cody goes nuts when he sees ice cream container or hears the word we dont say it unles we intend on giving him some or he whines and sulks and wont come near us.
Plus the benefit of making your own treats for them you know they are getting healthy food not by products. Let me know what she thinks of them. :smiley:

:smiley: These recipes are great! We, too, have a dog - a Dandy Dinmont Terrier. What a BABY!! We buy her dry dog food ($15 for small bag) and she will not eat it unless it is fed to her “one by one” while you’re pretending to eat it too. Spoiled!!! She would rather have our food. She loves pinapples, oranges, and broccoli. However, she cannot eat anything that contains corn. It makes her itch too much. She goes absolutely crazy with eyes bulging out when she sees a “Little Cesar” package. Personally, I think their gross. Will have to get hubby to make these dog treat recipes cuz I don’t know if I can stomach it :mrgreen: :lol: She loves her treats and expects a treat when let out it the morning and upon her re-entering the house. My daughter will love the cake ideas! And like skyEyz_7 said, you know what they’re getting when you make it yourself. Thanks again for these recipes.

Thank you all for the recipes! We have a beagle and a black lab that love their snacks! Now they can have them at a more economical price.

What a great posting!:slight_smile:
