My Fur Baby is 3!

It's official.  I've gone off the deep end. Loco.  

I've become one of those crazy dog people - the ones who pretend that their dog is their kid, and treat them like a kid (sorry, if you are one of those people...at least we are in this together!).  

Let me attempt to explain.....

Diefenbaker goes to doggie daycare a couple of days a week.  He goes on days that nobody is home, so that he can run and play and just have all around doggie fun.  He LOVES it.  He gets so excited when we pull up that he just about knocks us all out with his tail.  At daycare they celebrate birthdays. When it's a dog's birthday, the owner often brings in treats for all the other dogs.  (yes, it seems a little in reverse to be giving the gifts on your birthday....but whatever, that's just what they do there).  For the last 2 years I have been a bad human and haven't done anything for Diefenbaker's birthday.  He often comes home with treat bags from other dogs, and the guilt finally started to get the better of me.  

Our fur baby is 3 on Friday!  How time flies....

In order for Diefenbaker to keep hanging with the cool peeps at daycare, I figured I'd better get on the train this year.  I baked up a batch of natural doggie cookies for all of the pups.  Now Diefenbaker can bask in all the attention he'll receive from his minions buds at daycare tomorrow.  

In case you are interested, I used the following recipe:
3 C flour
1 C quick oats
2 C natural peanut butter
2 Tbsp baking powder
2 C milk (I used soy milk because it's what we had. Don't worry, I googled first to make sure it was ok for dogs.).

Mix everything together and chill for a few hours.  Then roll the dough out nice and thin and cut however you'd like.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.  Yields 50 cookies.
