Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

Frankie & Remi Turn 12 Peanut Butter & Pumpkin Dog Biscuits Dog Treats Frankie and Remi turn 12 on June 18. While we usually have a dog party with friends Kona and Kaleia, this year we stayed home so they could practice social distancing.     Actually, I hate to say it but they are slowing down a tad. While we used to be able to take a four-mile hike, the mile around the block is more their speed these days.  Slow walks … … chasing the ball …                  … and barking is what they like to do best. Oh yeah, and eating! On past birthdays, I have made them the Barefoot … Read more…

Carrot, Apple, and Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Corgi Delicious Apple, Carrot, and Peanut Butter Dog Treats   Dog Treats As the dog days of summer turn toward autumn, Remi caught a few rays in the backyard while I baked them a belated birthday treat. (Ok, I confess, I had to use that intro so that I could use this photo. It is SO WRONG that my swimsuit from high school now fits my dog, and I can barely pull it over a thigh!!!) For Christmas last year, my mom gave me the cutest corgi shaped cookie cutters, which I had been saving for Frankie and Remi’s birthday in June. Since I was late with a birthday post, I held it for National Dog Day on August 26. … Read more…

Watermelon and Yogurt Pupsicles (Frozen Dog Treats)

They’ll Want To Get Their Paws On These Frozen Dog Treats with Yogurt Watermelon and Yogurt Pupsicles  Dog Treats I wanted to make something special for Frank and Remi’s 10th birthday this year.  They especially like frozen dog yogurt (pumpkin and bacon flavor is a favorite) but it is expensive.  So when I came across a recipe for Watermelon and Yogurt Frozen Dog Treats from Baking Mischief, I knew I was on to something and maybe it would save us some money!  (Well, except for the fact that I ordered paw and bone shaped silicone molds, but that was like $9 so it doesn’t really count, right?)             These are so easy, just puree seedless watermelon … Read more…

Furry Godmother’s Peanut Butter Banana Pupcakes

Celebrating National Dog Day! Furry Godmother’s Peanut Butter Banana Pupcakes Dog Treats Recently, Frankie and Remi’s Aunt Susan (who is a total cat person) came across a recipe for these Peanut Butter & Banana Pupcakes while reading a cat caper by Julie Chase, Cat Got Your Diamonds:  A Kitty Couture Mystery.  Being the good aunt that she is, she shared it with me, and I made them in honor of National Dog Day on August 26 (of course, every day is National Dog Day at our house). National Dog Day was created by the National Dog Day Foundation in a mission to promote adoption of rescue dogs and to support local pet shelters coast to coast.  Their motto?  “Saving 10,000 … Read more…

Barefoot Contessa’s Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits  

Bone Appétit! Barefoot Contessa’s Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits Dog Treats As some of you may know, we have two Pembroke Welsh corgis named Frankie and Remi.  They are brother and sister from the same litter.  We adopted them when they were two years old. They are joyful and exuberant (although they were quite tired on that long drive home seven years ago). As seen in this Vanity Fair piece, corgis are Queen Elizabeth’s favorite dog. They are also super smart and athletic.  Because they are herding dogs, they need to be kept busy.  We have taken many agility classes over the years and even once took them to a ranch in Malibu to herd sheep.  That experience set … Read more…
