You know those pathetic people who talk about their dogs all the time…..that’s us.  If you know my family you know we are HUGE dog lovers……well, animals lover really.  I’m pretty certain I have lived my entire life with a dog in the house and in the 27 years I’ve been married, we have always had more than one dog.  I don’t know how they do it, but without ever speaking a word they wiggle their way into our hearts.  With out a doubt, I believe they make our lives fuller and richer.

This past week we had to say goodbye to Pepper.  Our hearts were heavy, we knew the time was coming, she was about 14 years old.  We rescued and fell in love her over 12 years ago.  No matter how prepared you are, you’re never really ready for the final goodbye.  We miss her so much…….as do Cullen and Callye.

As strange as it feels, it was also a time of celebration………it was Callye’s third birthday, and Allison wanted to make homemade dog treats (yes we celebrate dog birthdays.  pathetic family; see above).  Pepper never wanted to be the center of attention, she would have totally been ok with Callye taking the spotlight.

Allison and Callye are quite the pair.  I’m not sure who is going to have a harder time when she leaves to college next year.  This little video I made of the two of them playing in the snow a few weeks ago, sums up their relationship perfectly.

The four-legged friends in our lives aren’t necessarily looking for the sweets that we indulge for birthdays and holidays, but their taste buds will thank you for these tail wagging good, Peanut Butter and Coconut Dog BiscuitsHomemade dog biscuits are probably both cheaper and healthier than a lot that you’ll find in stores.

*before making homemade treats for your pet, you might want to talk with your vet about allergies and check this list of foods that are hazardous to dogs.

Any time I’m in the kitchen these two are always underfoot, staring at me with those big eyes hoping I’ll share a few bites. I think they were pretty happy to find out this time the treats were for the birthday girl and her brother.

You can cut them any shape, your dogs wont care!  I already had a bone shaped cookie cutter, then we made a few X’s and heart O’s for our Valentine’s Day pooches!

 I’m willing to bet your canine companions will love these biscuits as much as Callye and Cullen did!

    My previous Bichon, Bisquit, loved homemade cookies. One time I made the whole batch and put the trays in the oven, set the timer and went in the living room to watch tv. When the timer went off, Bisquit came RUNNING to get me only to be disappointed that it was a signal to switch trays in the oven! She waited patiently by the oven for those cookies to come out!

    It is not pathetic! Never call yourself pathetic for being an animal lover! I don’t have kids yet so my dog is like my child and I spoil her as such. These treats look delicious and I cannot wait to try them out for Hera, my mini dachshund. I guess my fiance and I are doing some baking this Valentine’s weekend. Thanks for the great share!

    How do you store the peanut butter treats? What is their shelf life or can I freeze them? Is the oat meal quick oats or some type of meal, similar to corn meal?

    • TidyMom replied on March 17th, 2014 at 5:21 am

      If left to dry out, they will keep for months stored in a cool dry place. For the oatmeal, you can use quick or regular.
