This weekend was a weekend to pamper our dog, Zoe!  Friday we went to one of the nations top 10 dog parks and it’s  here in Seattle.  Zoe met a friend (Elvis) and, being a hound she had to sniff EVERYTHING!!

With the “heat wave” we experienced in Seattle this past week (warmest day since October 15th, reaching 71F!), we ended that dog park visit with a quick trip to the water, Lake Washington.  Now let me tell you, Italian Greyhounds HATE water….Zoe’s first trip in the water, she quickly ran out……when I was able to get her in the water a second time, she just stood there.  It actually seemed like she was finally enjoying it….although the pictures say something different.

Well, today I decided to make another batch of Zoe’s favorite doggy cookies.  In the past I have made Chicken Liver treats, Peanut Butter Bacon cookies, and a Parsley Oatmeal treat….Today was a new mixture, Parsley Mint Carrot Spelt cookies. And let me tell you, first sampling was gone in an instant, so she had to try another.

If “Man’s Best Friend” is truly your best friend, then you’ll spend an hour of your busy day making a special treat for your little girl, or boy.
