Doggy Valentines

This year for Valentine's Day I decided to make the dogs a special treat. I came across this recipe from Tails Magazine and thought this would be a great way to break into the world of homemade dog treats.

What I liked about this recipe is that it used only six ingredients and was easy to make. The one thing I didn't like about it was the cook time (45 minutes) which is a little timely when you are using more than one cookie sheet.

Still, I found the smallest heart-shaped cookie cutters I had. It was a pretty easy

recipe to make. At times, I felt like I was making bread since you knead the dough. The true test were the dogs. All of them, including Gigi, absolutely loved it. One of the best things about making your own dog treats is that there are no preservatives added. Also, this was the one time I could snap a picture of all three dogs together without them fidgeting.
