Batching with Dad

Henry wanted to come too, but I didn't want to leave Greg home with the cats...they could seriously take advantage of him.  So, Henry and Greg are in Southern California while the mama figure in Henry's life goes to Oregon to defrost frozen pipes.  I'm sure he understands his responsibilities. I explained it all very explained it all very carefully.

Treat Opportunity

Just a heads up to my puppy friends. I've been working a great scam! Mama gets me all gussied up in holiday clothes and takes my here is the scam part. I know she made treats - all I have to do is nod my head and the hat slips. To get me to hold perfectly still, she bribes me with a yummy. Ha!! I win!

Even better -- I know where my Peep is keeping the holiday stash.  I'm betting there will some new stuffed animals to rip up when Christmas rolls around.

Marilyn's Dog Biscuits

Auntie Joy sent Henry a cousin-treat goodie pack.  Now, with his treats finished off, I am making more for the boy and his fence neighbor, Sheldon. I thought I'd share this very simple-to-make yummy concoction with our cyber friends.

Marilyn's Dog Biscuits

1 1/8 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/8 cup white flour
1/2    cup peanut butter
1       cup water
2       tablespoons canola oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Blend wheat and white flour in bowl.
Combine peanut butter, water and oil in second bowl.
Add flour, one cup at a time to form dough.
Knead into a nice firm ball.  If it is sticky, add a little more flour.
Let stand 10 minutes.

Roll dough 1/4 inch thick on parchment paper and cut into desired shape.
Score the tops so that built up steam can escape.

Bake on parchment paper for about 25 minutes.
Turn the pan a couple of times during baking process
If treats are not hard, leave in oven about five minutes more.

Cool and then stick them in a zip lock baggie or a snap top and store on the shelf or in the refrigerator.

Henry adds his "wuff" to Marilyn's "woof."  In human words, they both approve!  The only problem with this is the pathetic looks from Henry awaiting his single treat for the day from the newly baked, cooling goodies…..okay, he was so pathetic I ended up giving him three.
