Dog biscuits and snowy days

The forecast today called for a major snowstorm moving up the East coast.  The snow started to fall around 1:00 in the afternoon.  Charlie and Ruby have been enjoying themselves running around the backyard and kicking up snow.

Late in the afternoon, I decided to bake the dogs some Christmas cookies.  I searched the internet for a recipe and found a large selection to choose from.  Unfortunately, almost all of them called for at least one ingredient which I did not have in my cupboard.  Perhaps readers of this blog stock these items, but my provisions lean toward the more mundane. Here is a list of just some of the items the recipes called for: powered milk, spelt, wheat germ, brewers yeast, beef bouillon granules, bacon grease, molasses, Bulgar wheat, liver powder, soy flour, meat drippings.  I am sure each of these items would impart a flavor to the biscuits which the dogs would enjoy.

I finally came across a few recipes for which I had the ingredients available.  As I mentioned at the top of this post, it is snowing heavily, and I had no intention of venturing out to find the aforementioned items.   The recipe I settled on called for flour, baking powder, peanut butter, milk and shredded carrots.  The recipe can be found here.

The cookies rolled out easily and I used cookie cutters to make the shapes.  Once in the oven, a smell of baking carrots wafted through the kitchen.  I sure hope that these dogs will like the taste of baked carrots.  Well, of course I have no doubt that Ruby will eat the biscuits.  She will eat anything, really, absolutely anything.

Once the biscuits had cooled, I gave each dog one.  The dogs ate the biscuits in record time and gave them 2 paws up.

    In recent years, a number of exciting new treatments for breast cancer have become available. Many of these treatments are called targeted therapies because they target specific characteristics of cancer cells and don’t harm healthy, normal cells. New targeted therapies are emerging on a regular basis, and the results of clinical trials and studies of these new medications are encouraging. Knowledge is power and together we can make a difference! Happy Holidays!
