Who loves me?

Here’s what I am saving up my dog biscuits to get my mom for her birthday...

I think that this tattoo will be much more stylish than micro-chipping her, don’t you agree?

Our wire-y friend Mikos went to the Bridge happy & without an itch. His owner Elizabeth shares this recipe for doggie treats that are especially good for curing the itchies.
Even if you don’t have an itch, they are a yummy, healthy treat!


What you need:
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups ground flaxseed (organic, cold-milled)
1 cup powdered non-fat milk
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 cup boullion powder (beef, liver, veggie or soup mix)
2 eggs
1 1/2 cup iced water
1 tbsp flax seed oil

What you do:
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
• Combine all dry ingredients.
• Mix in eggs & flaxseed oil, then add the cold water so that the mixture forms a ball.
• Use a rolling pin to roll dough out to about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thickness, then cut into desired shapes. (Sprinkle flour on your board if the dough is too sticky to roll out easily.)
• Bake for 25-30 minutes on lightly greased cookie sheets. the longer you bake, the crispier the cookie. A shorter baking time makes for a softer cookie.
Alternatively, you can mix in a little extra water to the dough and just spoon it onto the cookie sheet. This method is faster than using cookie cutters and the dogs are just as happy.

Recommended quantities: 2 cookies per day for 15-20 lb. dog
(The Dog Mother says that she is going to double up on the garlic powder for the flea season & make me some Fleabusters - Dean-O!.)
