I Baked...For the Dogs

Who makes their dogs homemade treats? Seriously? 

Oh yeah, that's right, I do. Ha! 

Now, this isn't something I typically do. I don't bake for humans a whole lot, so why would I bake for my dogs? Well, of course, it was inspired from a variation of a recipe found on Pinterest and the half can of pumpkin I had in my fridge. 

Pumpkin Puppy Treats

2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup pumpkin
2 eggs
2 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 tsp salt

Heat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients until it forms a dough. Roll out as you would sugar cookies.
Cut with cookie cutters. I just so happened to have a dog bone.
Place on a greased baking sheet in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Until crispy.

Cool. You don't want burned puppy tongues.

Try to get your dogs to do something good. Like sit. Demonstrated nicely here by Wiggles.
Then "sit" goes out the window when he's rendered impatient. NOMS!
"More please!" I'd say they were a hit.

they are so cute I can't stand it! :-)

I had saved a recipe for homemade cat treats, but I never did make them. Homemade is better for the pets-no added fillers (aka garbage)!

Should I be embarrassed to admit that I bake for the dogs all the time?

ABSOLUTELY no store bought dog "cookies" in my house!
