Pumpkin Puppers

This is my three year old lab named Roxy. She enjoys long walks, humping t-shirts, destroying remotes, and playing frisbee. Her favorite snacks are dog treats, dog treats, dog treats, and occasionally her own feces. I bet you're hungry now!

I decided to make my pretty girl some homemade dog treats after my mom recommended this recipe. She had purchased some of these at a bake sale and her picky dogs gobbled them right up so she asked for the recipe. (In case you are wondering, we asked a vet whether pumpkin was okay for dogs and he confirmed that its good for them!)

Kensington tried to eat my hand because they smelled like the treats. True story. Thanks again for making these for her. She loved them!!

Feeding dogs pumpkin actually helps prevent them from eating their feces. I must try this recipe as my beagles are notorious poop eaters.

Thats funny because for the two weeks I fed them to her, she didn't eat a single turd. Now that they are gone.....not so much.
