Dog biscuits

Friends of ours welcomed a new puppy into their home earlier this year. When we were invited over for lunch last weekend, I thought a gift of home-made dog biscuits would be nice. I looked on the internet and found a recipe (there are a lot) that used ingredients that I had, more or less, on hand.

Dog biscuits baking in the oven. Yes, I have a bone-shaped cookie cutter.

Tasha liked the biscuits so I hoped the new pup would as well. And it turns out that she did. They're made with whole wheat flour, duck fat (in place of vegetable oil), chicken broth, and a little leftover roasted pumpkin purée (in place of corn meal). What's not to like? BOL (barking out loud)!


  1. What a wonderful idea and sweet thing to do!

  2. That is a really nice present.

  3. That's a fabulous gift! Did you have a dog-bone cookie cutter already?

  4. I read somewhere recently that pumpkin purée is very good for a dog's digestion and in fact can relieve an upset stomach in dogs. So your biscuits are medicinal as well as (no doubt) very tasty!!

  5. Oh, woof! Pumkin and sweet potato are very good in doggie treats.

  6. mitch, :)

    jean, I didn't know that! We have lots of pumpkin...

    ck, only if the dog likes them... LOL!

    judy, yes. Many years ago a friend gave us a commercial dog biscuit mix and it came with the cutter.

    travel, :)

    emm, apparently so! Tasha gobbles them down.


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
