Day 17 | Puppy Love {Cookies for the Pooch}

I must preface this by saying that we are a hard core, dog loving family.

Once upon a time, almost 4 years ago, the sweetest puppy ever came to live with us.

The moment I first laid eyes on my sweet pupster.

It was love at first sight.

His first trip to the Vet...he's always loved to play with the big dogs.

To say that we spoil our beloved pooch is a huge understatement.  After all, he has his own raincoat...

...and he gets to eat Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner before anyone else...

He even gets his own chair at the lake {the pregnant lady was lucky to get her own chair, too}.

Needless to say, when we brought the Kiddo home from the hospital almost a year ago {can you believe it??}, our beloved Pooch was less than thrilled.

It wasn't that he didn't love and guard the Kiddo...he just wanted us to himself again.  Um...sibling rivalry with a dog?!  Yes, friends, that's what we had.

But as the Kiddo got bigger, the Pooch began to see that maybe this wasn't so bad.

And now they are not only best friends and playmates, they are inseparable.

So, to treat our sweet Pooch for his faithful friendship...and because there is a seemingly endless supply of leftovers in my fridge...we made dog cookies.

Add the peanut butter, skim milk, baking powder, and whole wheat flour to a mixing bowl and beat until well blended.

Like so.


...roll out...

...and cut out your cookies.

Let your pooch inspect...he'll probably try to do this anyway.  ;)

Can you go any faster Dad?

Bake for 20 minutes in a 375 degree oven.

Let cool so your Poochie doesn't burn his tongue.
