Look at this face…..how can you not just love her?
Especially when her wrinkly little face looks up at me while I’m in the kitchen working on some recipe. Just tears at my heart strings. Thus the other day, I dedicated the afternoon to making our little puggle, Bella, a big ol’ bag of Peanut Butter Puppy Treats.
The great thing about baking your little buddy treats at home is that you know EXACTLY what’s in it. None of that animal by-product stuff…..And trust me, after catching an episode of Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel, you’ll be reading the ingredients list on EVERY thing you buy your four-legged little friends.
Bella LOVED them……she ate them in the same manner that I attack french fries. We actually gave them a try but it just tasted like a dry cracker to us. But then again, we don’t have the same discerning palette as puggles 🙂
Got a four-legged buddy? Make their day by whipping up a batch of these treats. The molasses and honey I added give it just a little more touch of love.
