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.

She chowed down. She preferred the Cranberry Liver Brownies, her favorite of the two.
