This post is for all of my fellow friends to the animals out there.  I LOVE my dogs, they are a huge part of my family!  My dogs are Durban(the brown one) and Daisy, better known as Sweet Lu Lu Poo Pants.  🙂  They are my little miniature weiner dogs.  Sweet Lu and I are definitely BFFs and I think she is one classy gal.

I love doing nice things for my little friends so , I was so excited to find a super easy recipe for homemade dog treats on a crafty website I love – Martha Stewart.   The recipe is really easy to make  and the ingredients are totally normal, not anything yucky.  They actually were really yummy smelling while they cooked.

Here is what you need:

1 cup flour

1/4 cup wheat germ

1/4 cup brewers yeast

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 tbsp. canola oil (I was naughty and used vegetable oil)

1/2 cup low sodium canned chicken stock (you can also use peanut butter)

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.  Bake at 350* for 10-15 minutes.

I bought my dog bone shaped cookie cutters at Hobby Lobby.  I got a medium sized one and a teeny one, because it was so cute.  🙂   My kids had fun rolling out the dough and making the treats for their beloved little friends.

I thought that they would make a great gift for a special little doggie friend, so I put the treats in these adorable takeout boxes and made some fun tags for them.  This one is for Lu Lu and Durbans little doggie cousin Pawz.

These are so easy and fun to make, so go make your little friend some tasty homemade treats today!
