National Dog Day

I made Shiro some homemade dog treats a couple days ago with my sister as a token of appreciation for the past 7 years of friendship and puppy love.

It was easy!

We ground 2 cups dry brown rice into flour (because white flour isn’t that healthy for dogs), mashed up 1 can of peas and carrots, and mixed everything with 1 cup of peanut butter.

Then we baked the batter in tiny circle molds at 350 degrees for 10 minutes a dozen. 

We made 3 batches – that’s 36 treats!

It was pretty funny. Shiro was skeptical at first since we’ve never really used the treat system before, so he came up and smelled them for a few minutes and backed away. But after a tiny taste, Shiro immediately grabbed the treats out of our hands and ran off to devour them. 

What did you do for National Dog Day? Do you have any treat recipes to share? Let me know in the comments below!
