Two Paws Up

I would not post recipes that I have not tried myself. Well, not me personally, but my pups.

Three of three dogs all approved! That's one yorkie, one APBT, and one St Bernard/Collie mix.

If you're worried that your pooch is a picky eater, well the St. Bernard/ Collie is a very picky eater, only eating select dog cookies. And, well, these dog biscuits suit her taste buds.

      I'm sure that you could, but the treats will not taste the same, not will they cook the same. I really wouldn't recommend it. You will not get the same overall health effect.

      Thanks Whitney for a couple of new recipes for my poochies. I haven't tried them with the ginger or the parmesan treats yet.
