For Valentine's Day we like to spoil Momo with something sweet. She always makes us smile, so it's the least we could do, right? There's a great boutique by our house that sells adorable treats, but this year we're gonna try baking her some. We found this recipe for Peanut Butter Doggie Bones on BrownEyedBaker.com - instead of making them bone-shaped, we're going to make them heart-shaped. Too cute huh?
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup low-fat milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well.
Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.
If you don't have time or are just baking impaired, no worries - you can order gift boxes online. PamperedPawGifts.com has a wide selection of treats and baskets that you can buy for your furry valentine. They can even personalize them with your pup's name! (Not that your pup can read, but it's the thought that counts.)
If your dog can't have sweets, you can still get them a special treat! TrendyPuppy.com has a wide selection of awesome Valentine themed toys, outfits and charms. Act fast though, they're selling out quickly!
Finally, what better way to show your dog how much you love them, then giving them a place of their own. Don't forget to check out our website to view our whole selection of super-comfy beds! If you're in the Seattle-area, we'll be at CityDog's MuttMixer at the W hotel on the 9th, so make sure to come by and say hi!
