CURL UP WITH YOUR DOG & A GOOD BOOK

reading a bookI love to read everything about animals. I am always in search of all things dog and pet related in magazines, reference books, biographies and fiction. Here are a few of my favorite reads:

By Ted Kerasote

FROM BAGHDAD, WITH LOVE
By Lieutenant Colonel Jay Kopelman with Melinda Roth

HOME-MADE DOGGIE TREATS

My pups; Oliver, Rico & Nellie recommend these yummy PUP-KIN COOKIES to your canine companion.

1cup oat flour
1cup brown rice flour
1cup canned pumpkin (or fresh pureed)
1tsp. cinnamon
1 egg
1/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 350.
Combine all ingredients together & mix until dough forms. Roll into small balls (about 1″).
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake about 20 minutes. Less time for chewy cookie…a bit longer for crunchy ball.
Let cool on wire rack. Store in refrigerator.

These treats are very easy to make and the are high in fiber, low in fat & great for sensitive tummies.
