dog breath

a rainy day after many rainy days...
already we have made so many cookies,
muffins, and human treats...
time for doggie snacks.
(a great way to use up a few odd ingredients in the pantry also.)
(and no, we don't have a dog.)
Dog Biscuits:
mix up in bowl:
1 C oats
3 C whole wheat flour
1/2 cup ground nuts
(whatever is on hand...I used toasted pumpkin seeds, hull on)
1/4 C wheat or oat germ
1/4 C flax seeds
cut in:
1/3 C fat
(I used bacon drippings...yum!)
1 beaten egg
1/2 C milk
when that looks like the mix is in even chunks, stir in 1 C boiling water.
 then when cool enough,
knead until a nice elastic ball of dough.
(add flour as required.)
roll out about 1/2 inch thick,
cut out with your favourite ironic cookie shape,
pop onto a cookie sheet and
bake at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes.
to let them get nice and hard,
leave the snax in the oven after you turn it off.
pack in paper bags, and
deliver to dog households around your 'hood.
enjoy the love that love brings.
