At 8:30 on Saturday morning, I had a brilliant idea! So brilliant, in fact, that I absolutely had to run into our bedroom, jump on the bed and wake Brandon and Pele’ up to let them know!
Why don’t I make Pele’ some homemade treats?
When Brandon brought him home some treats the other day, he took note of the fact that we try to avoid buying stuff that has a billion ingredients…so why wouldn’t we do that for our dog? The “healthy” dog treats at the grocery store have just about the same thing that the regular treats have: flour, meat mush, bone mush and lots of unpronounceable preservatives.
Thus, my brilliant 8:30 a.m. idea was born!
Pele’ loves apples. Pele’ also loves carrots. I had some apples in need of a use, because they were threatening to go bad. I also had some carrot pulp I had saved in the freezer (they were carrots from our garden that we had used for juicing – I didn’t want to get rid of the pulp!) I’d bet veterinarians and vegetarians would approve!
Homemade Doggie Treats
*Note: You can also use leftover apple pulp from juicing apples, but you may have to add more water to the mixture.
The verdict?? Pele’ loves them! Gosh, Becca. That was a brilliant idea!
