I'm thoroughly exhausted!
Being a full-time mommy to a hyperactive Lurcher is one hell of a challenge! I am the one that walks him, but the boy took him out the other day while I was at work and I called him and it was pretty funny to hear him say he thought Gerry was hard work! He's really been keeping me fit :) A couple of friends came over last night and Gerry really got on well with them.
I decided to bake him some veggie doggie biscuits today. As he has kennel cough we've had to buy him some honey to soothe his throat, so I thought I'd also incorporate it into some homemade biscuits along with some peanut butter as a special treat for him. Normally I would obviously not have honey in the house, so feel free to substitute it with molasses, a sweet syrup or agave nectar - whatever your doggie likes the most.
- 3 Cups Flour
- 0.5 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1.5 Cups Soya Milk / Rice Milk / Water
- 2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1.5 Cups Peanut Butter
- 1 tbsp Honey / Molasses / Syrup
Knead the dough, roll out and cut with a cookie cutter. Bake for 20 mins on 350F (180C) until golden brown. Leave in the oven to cool and harden.
I froze the rest of the dough so I can just take it out a little in advance next time I want to make a batch of cookies for him. This mixture makes LOADS! Gerry really liked them and I think they will really come in useful for training as he always wants more. Humans can eat them too of course, and it's nice to be able to feed him something that I've baked myself which doesn't contain any artificial flavouring, colouring or preservatives.
