I’m going to admit that I am a little too obsessed with my dog. Tara is so squishy and fun to cuddle. I can’t resist her. When Jake brought her home at 8 weeks old, I couldn’t believe how long her ears were and her paws were the size of my fist. To say she’s loved is an understatement.
We found out pretty early that poor Tara Dog has a few food allergies. We’ve had to adjust her food several times to deal with it. Since she is turning 5 tomorrow, I wanted to make her something special. Last year Audrey and I made her a cake and you can find the recipe here.
I looked up some dog treat recipes and just wasn’t a fan of some of them. I needed something simple that Audrey could participate in. No bake dog treats kept popping up. They all called for pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie filling. There wasn’t any pumpkin puree at my grocery store and I wasn’t going to use baby food (which would work if you have some already.) So we decided to try and make up our own again.
