Jessy will be visiting us again

Hi, everyone -

Jessy is going to visiting with us again in about two weeks.  Her pawrents are going to Florida and they are driving a car back here.  We hope all of you had a Happy Easter.  Here are some pictures.  They were made for us by one of our Dogster pup pals,  Aregon Spunky and Casper.  They also started a blog which hasn't been up very long.  Here are some pictures:

In the meantime, if anyone is interested in making holistic treats for their pets here is a recipe that Mama got from a friend.  She has not tried making these yet but thought she would share the recipe with anyone who is.  Sorry for the different font.  Mama just copied and pasted this to the post.  Here is the recipe:

These basic biscuits can be customized to cater to your canine’s palette
• 2 ½ cups whole wheat flour (substitute regular flour or oats if your dog is sensitive to wheat)
• 1 tsp. salt (or less)
• 1 egg
• 1 tsp. Beef or chicken Bouillon granules (can substitute beef or chicken broth/stock)
• ½ cup hot water
Optional Add ins
• Bacon or chicken broth, eggs, oats, liver powder, wheat germ or the other supplements discussed, shredded cheese, bacon bits, fresh herbs, dehydrated bits of apple, banana or blueberry all unsweetened, etc.,.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Dissolve bouillon in hot water
3. Add remaining ingredients
4. Knead dough until it forms a ball (approximately 3 minutes)
5. Roll dough until ½ inch thick
6. Cut into slices or bone shapes (you can purchase a bone shaped cookie cutter to make shapes with)
7. Place dough pieces on lightly greased cookie sheet
8. Cook for 30 minutes but check mid-way through as my oven is old and times may vary!

Love -
