Woof, Woof

A few weeks ago my dog had asked you all for a couple dog bone recipes…we got over 50…so thank you. While my mom was here(also a dog owner) I mentioned to her that I wanted to start making my own dog bones. She was very much on board with this and also wanted to make her puppy some as well. So after the Easter dishes were done we set out to make dog biscuits. We originally were only going to make two kinds but then my mom realized that we didn’t use the molasses, and darn it all, we bought molasses just to use in these biscuits…so we made three kinds. As I suspected, the peanut butter kind were by far my puppy’s favorite…however, both dogs loved all three kinds and gladly ate them whenever they were tossed their way. I can not for the life of me remember who gave me what recipe so if you recognize one you submitted, please let me know…or if you know where it was from.
Quick Hockey Update: Calgary lost their first game…apparently they were confused and thought it was a scrimmage game and played like they didn’t give a crap. I cussed so much during that game that I was pretty sure the police would be at my door…my neighbors thinking domestic violence, not a hockey game. They play Sunday morning and they best pull it together by then!!!
My Sabres however, were indeed aware that they were playing in a playoff game and won. They play again in a couple of hours and I am hoping for the best.
In case you were wondering what I am stuck eating now that one of my teams has won…that would be quiche. Not a good choice for my waistline/heart…but I will hopefully not get sick of it as quick as I did with pea soup.

Note: Some people feel garlic is bad for dogs. Don’t use it then. My vet as well as two other vets(who are friends) said the small amount of garlic would do nothing. This person tells me by recommending these treats I could kill your dog. I got another email telling me that cornmeal and wheat is bad for your dog and will cause tooth decay. I also got reprimanded for using peanut butter because dogs might be allergic to nuts. So please, for the love of God don’t make these dog biscuits.

 

Molasses Dog Biscuits

2 cups cornmeal
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons molasses
2 cloves garlic
½ cup chicken broth
½ cup powdered milk

Preheat oven to 400º. In a large mixing bowl combine all the ingredients. Blend until smooth. Roll this mixture out  ¼ inch thick and cut into shapes or shape into dog biscuits by hand. Place 1 inch apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.

 

Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Dog Treats

2 TBSP flaxseed meal
1 TBSP olive oil
1 cup water
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup oatmeal
2 cups whole wheat flour

Mix all the ingredients together. Roll on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thick, adding flour or water as needed. Cut with a cookie cutter(we just make squares). Bake at 300F for 20 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the treats for several hours or overnight in the oven.

Soy Flour Dog Bones

2 eggs
2 TBSP soy flour
2 TBSP wheat germ
2 TBSP instant nonfat dry milk
1/2 tsp salt
4 TBSP water
1 tsp chicken flavored granules
2 cups whole wheat flour

Preaheat oven to 350F. Use ungreased cookie sheets.
Break eggs into a large bowl and stir until blended. Add the soy flour, wheat germ, dry milk, salt and water; and stir until smooth. Add the flour and mix into the egg mixture; you can do this with a spoon, but your hands work better. The dough will be stiff and dry.
Remove the ball of dough to a working surface; pat into a rectangle 3 inches wide and 1/2 inch thick, then cut itno bones 3/4 inch wide…we made smaller ones than that…basically cut those in half. Place 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes on one side then flip and bake for another 15-20. Remove and cool on racks.

  1. Is it wrong that I want a bite of those biscuits?

  2. Oh goodness I really do want a puppy!
    We travel too much to have a puppy…
    Oh, I really miss having a puppy…
    Did you just give the puppy all the biscuits at once? How could you ever say no to those puppy eyes…

  3. My husband loves your love of hockey. He is considering taking you on as a second wife.

    You dog is so beautiful and what a lucky dog she is to have a mommy who makes her homemade bones.

    I am definitely going to try the peanut butter ones for my dog.

  4. Ohhh, I’m going to have to try these!! And my dog Max will want to give you a big kiss, I’m sure!

  5. Lucky puppy, look at all those doggalicious treats! I bet your fur-kid was happy with all these yummies!

  6. Sorry about Calgary Peabody, but the dog bones/cookies look great. I’m going to make the ones with molassas for Xam, but I’ll bet Sweetie will steal at least one. Hehehe.
    Good luck for the next games.

  7. The peanut butter and oatmeal recipe was mine — I’m so glad they were a hit! Every dog I’ve made them for goes nuts for them.

  8. aww your puppy is gorgeous!

  9. rusvaplauke says:

    To say the truth, I’d be more than glad to take a bite of those peanut butter oatmeal biscuits myself.

  10. Who knew making dog biscuits wouldn’t be crazy technical to make! These are a great gift idea…hmmm.

    And – The Thrashers? Ugh! Losing in the series to the Rangers 2-0. But, this is the first go-around for our young team….:) I have faith!

  11. Oy, that face!

  12. What a cutie! Thanks for the recipes, I’ll try them out on my dog this week.

  13. I’ve pulled out all my hair from those Flames. WHAT is their problem Peabody???

    PS – cute dog!

  14. lucky pup. I use to make dog bones for Pooh Bear too. I think used bacon and cheese. Trouble is the hubby kept eating them as they lay cooling on the baking rack.

  15. Nigel & Chloe say “Thank You!”

    xoxo

  16. Those look good enough to eat! You, I’m sure, have one happy little dog now.

  17. I’ll definitely be making some of these for our two. Dogs that is.
    I hadn’t heard that garlic was bad for dogs, quite the opposite in fact and I used to give our dogs garlic pills with their food. However, as you quite rightly note, if you’re iffy about using anything, then don’t use it.
    Thanks for sharing!

  18. A blog reader of mine just referred me to your site for these recipes. My Miss Daisy’s birthday is Saturday – I’m gathering recipe ideas for her. =) Thanks for the post – beautiful cookies! I think they all look delish! -Anna.

  19. i have the understanding from a friend that cornmeal is bad for a dog and the dog has a verry hard time digesting it. and that i can make them verry sick, true?

  20. My dong has never gotten sick from digesting it and my vet has never listed it as something to avoid. I would just not make them if you have concerns.

  21. so I hope it’s not too insulting that the first recipe of yours I tried was for my pup. I made the peanut butter and molasses cookies, and she loved them both.
    They didn’t kill her, though she had some tummy issues – probably because they were rich.
    The only problem I had, not at all recipe related, was that I brought them to Florida, and the humidity made the peanut butter treats moldy. We chucked those and kept the molasses ones in the fridge after that. Thanks so much, can’t wait to try one of your people recipes!
