Corky is our only dog now. His sister, Murphy, had to be euthanized (at age 14), about 1 month ago. He is 10 years old, does nothing much but lounge on his bed in the living room (he was never active, even when he was 1 year old.) He did manage to come out with my granddaughters and I to play in the leaves the other day.
Here’s a great treat for dogs that you can make as needed. Add a little dried spearmint for “doggie breath”
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 T baking powder
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup skim milk
1 teaspoon dried spearmint (optional)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour, baking powder, and spearmint if used. Add the peanut butter and milk. Stir until mixed well. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough is smooth. Roll out to a 1/4 inch thickness and cut with cookie or biscuit cutters.
Place onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until brown. Cool overnight before placing into an airtight container. Makes about 2 dozen cookies depending on the size cookie cutter you use.
