Puppy Love

For the last week we have been watching our good friends' black lab puppy, Hunter while they are off skiing in Montana.  It's been a long time since we've had a puppy in the house. Our Golden Retriever, Carlton is going to be 12 this summer.  Ohhh how I love a puppy!!!  I love the energy, playfulness, puppy groans and above all else, how almost overnight it has made our old man dog-young again. These two pups play and wrestle all day long and at night crash out on the floor-exhausted.  All that puppy play calls for some major dog treats!!!  And today we are making some.
Peanut Butter Dog Treats
1 Cup Flour
1/4 Cup Oatmeal
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Milk
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.  Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix well until combined.  Knead the dough into a large ball and roll out onto wax paper.  Use cookie cutters or in my case a silicon baking mold.  Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Store in an air tight container or gallon zip lock bag.  

Sweet Hunter
