How about trying some of my favorite doggie treat recipes? They are easy to make and so good. And they're good for us too.....no preservatives.

*** These recipes were given to my Mommy by friends. Credit is given when we know the origin of the recipes.


DOG BISCUITS

Ingredients
3 1/2 c Flour
2 c Whole wheat flour
1 c Rye flour
1 c Cornmeal
2 c Cracked wheat
4 tsp Salt
1/2 c Dry milk
1 Egg
1 pk Dry yeast (or 1 Tablet)
1 pt Chicken stock

Ingredients not generally available may be found at health food stores. Dissolve yeast in 1/4 c warm water. Add chicken stock and pour into dry ingredients. Knead for 3 minutes, working into a stiff dough. Roll dough into a 1/4 in. thick sheet and cut with cookie cutters shaped like dog biscuits (if they are available). Bake in 300 degree oven for 45 minutes, then turn oven off and leave biscuits in oven overnight. In the morning the biscuits will be bone hard.Note: This dough is extremely stiff to work with, but the end product is excellent.

Fido Bone Christmas Cookies
Yield: 80 servings
Ingredients
2 1/4 ts Dry yeast
1/4 c warm water
1tsp sugar
3 1/2 c All-purpose flour
2 c Whole wheat flour (or 2 c Cracked wheat flour)
2tbs milk
1 c cornmeal
1 c Rye flour
1/2 c Nonfat dry milk
4 ts Kelp powder
4 c beef or chicken broth

-------------glaze-----
1 Large egg

Preheat oven to 300F.

Sprinkle the dry yeast or crumple the compressed yeast over the water (110F if dry yeast, 100F if compressed yeast). Add a pinch of sugar and allow the yeast to sit in a draft-free spot for 10-20 minutes. (The mixture should be full of bubbles. If not, the yeast is too old to be useful.)
In a large bowl, place all the dry ingredients and stir to blend
them. Add the yeast mixture and 3 cups of the broth. Using your
hands, in the bowl, mix to form the dough, adding more broth if
needed to make the dough smooth and supple. Half a batch at a time, knead the dough briefly on a lightly floured counter. (Keep the
second batch of dough covered with a moist towel while shaping and cutting the first.) Roll out the dough into an 18 x 13 x 1/4" rectangle. Cut it into desired shapes, using a 3 1/2-inch bone cutter or a 2 1/2-inch round cookie cutter. Reroll the scraps. Repeat the procedure with the remaining dough. (Note: The remaining dough must be used immediately, it cannot be stored for remaining use). For an attractive shine, lightly beat together the egg and milk. Brush the glaze on the cookies. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes or until brown and firm. For even baking, rotate the cookie sheets from top to bottom three quarters of the way through the baking period.
Use a small, angled metal spatula or pancake turner to transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. The baked cookies will keep for many months. Allow cookie sheets to cool completely between batches.
