Woof, woof.

September 18, 2009

So I mentioned awhile back the Just For Fun Dog Show I was donating homemade dog treats to, and Yoyo donated some handmade dog blankets to. Well it was supposed to be on September 12th, but it was postponed due to the rain, so it was actually on September 13th in Cedar Creek Park and it was a huge success! Unfortunately, me, Indy and Jay were unable to go because Jay had to work. But I have some pictures to share, and also the recipe for the doggie biscuits I made ‘specially for this!

First, some pictures of the prizes themselves:

They came out really beautiful, and in case you can’t read that picture, they each contained a handmade blanket from Topstitch, a dog bowl filled with homemade doggie biscuits I made (tied with a red ribbon), and a nylon chew toy. Thank you to Dayna for making me a part of this, and thanks to Yoyo for helping out and donating the gorgeous blankets!



  • 1 ½ c. whole wheat flour
  • ½ c. all-purpose flour
  • ½ c. cornmeal
  • ½ c. rolled oats
  • ½ c water
  • ½ c. canola oil
  • ¼ c. parsley flakes
  • 3 tbsps flax seeds
  • 2 eggs
  • 5 tbsps peanut butter
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° and lightly grease your baking sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal and rolled oats.  Little by little, add in the remaining ingredients until it’s mixed well.
  3. Using your fingers, scoop out a decent amount of the dough into your hand.  Press it down on the baking sheet and form a rough dog bone shape, then press down to flatten.  Alternately, you can just make plain round cookie shapes, or roll the dough out on a floured surface and cut into whatever shape you like. If you have a dog bone cookie cutter, you don’t need to mold them into bones by hand!
  4. Bake for 10-20 minutes then turn off the oven.  Let the cooked treats hang out in the oven for at least 20 minutes, so that they will harden.

Flax seed aids digestion, and also helps dogs keep a shiny coat and healthy skin. Parsley naturally fights bad breath and peanut butter… well, all dogs love peanut butter. These biscuits are a huge hit with Indy (hence my name for them, heh) and I’m sure your dog will love them too.

And here are some pictures from the Dog Show itself of some awesome doggies enjoying themselves! Thanks to Dayna at All Things Sweet for the pictures.
