Bane, my dog, is one of my absolute favorite beings on the planet. Every time I see him, my heart just swells with joy. He's so darn handsome and I'm totally in love with him. So, I have decided to add a new section for those of you who feel the same way about your lil babe, "The Barkery." You can find this section under the Recipes tab. Dog treats are really simple to make and your dog will love them, way more than anything store bought. I've given these treats to four different pups and they all loved them.
I always make Bane a treat for his birthday or on holidays, but the first time I made these, they weren't actually for Bane. Brennan's mother has a sweet little beagle name Penny (hence the treat name.) Lisa, Bren's mom, loves her Penny the way I love Bane, so I thought she would appreciate some homemade treats that didn't have all that awful stuff that store bought pet food usually has. I made these as a gift for Christmas last year. They only have four ingredients, one of which is water, so they have a pretty long shelf life compared to homemade dog treats that may contain egg or other animal products. That being said, my dog is certainly not a vegan, it just so happens that these treats are.
I'm making them today for two reasons. One, Penny needs a refill on her treats. These are her favorite and Lisa only gives her one a day, at bedtime. The second reason is Bane's birthday! He is now 8 years old, but I still call him a puppy. Penny gets the hearts and Bane gets the people-shaped treats. They have a shelf life of about 3 months, 6 months if kept in the freezer. So, go ahead and make a whole bunch of these for your buppy. They're gonna love you forever.
