I volunteer and work with the most most wonderful group of people. We used to be a part of a rescue organization that closed its doors unfortunately. It’s very hard day in and day out seeing dogs and cats that are abused, neglected and discarded and Veterinary care is very expensive. Since the organization ceased to exist a new group was started whose sole purpose is to help resuced pets get medical treatment when needed we call ourselves Pug Squad. We recently had an auction for little guy named Marco who desperately needed surgery for Cherry Eye. To help I donated baked goods, a dozen cookies, a loaf of banana bread and dog biscuits. As I watched the bidding there were 3 people who really wanted to win, my solution was to offer to send 3 boxes to the 3 highest bidders. The auction was a huge success doubling the goal amount, and I am happily packaging 3 boxes filled with goodies. The dog biscuits are loosely based on a recipe I found on the internet and I hope the recipients enjoy them. The biscuits are made with 3 kinds of flour, oat, spelt and barley. Not completely grain free but it’s healthy whole grains along with peanut butter and dehydrated and dried fruit. Percy is my guinea pig, we’ll see what he thinks, he is a picky eater and will often shun food if it doesn’t pass muster, Percy’s sniff test.
Made 42 biscuits I made 24 bone shape and 18 small round
1 cup spelt flour
1 cup oat flour
1/2 cup barley flour
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 cup peanut butter
2 large eggs
pinch of salt
1 tbs honey
1/4 cup water (enough to make a cohesive dough)
some dried and freeze dried fruit- I used blueberries, cranberries and apple a little of each.
Mix all the ingredients together adding water until the dough is cohesive. Preheat the oven to 325-350 degree’s (depending on your oven). Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness and cut out the cookies with your favorite cookie cutter or cut into rounds. NOTE: The dough is a bit finicky, crumbly I added a little water while rolling it out, my dough sat in the refrigerator overnight and dried a bit. Bake until golden brown and cooked through approximately 15-20 minutes. Let the cookies cool completely before storing.
I saw this on instagram from @puppymillssuck It touched my heart and is how I feel about my dogs.
