Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Bones

Dog bones

If you know me personally, then you know we don’t have a dog.
Then why did I bake up so many dog bones?
 For my daughter to give to all the cute puppies she attends to over the year.

My daughter LOVES dogs, * don’t tell our cat, she LOVES him too.
Sometimes I am sad for her we don’t have a dog, although I don’t think any dog we could ever get would receive so much of her attentions as these dogs do. You know how kids are! She takes her responsibility seriously and cares for these dogs better than in they were her own. Many people around our neighborhood ask me how are our dogs are….when I tell them, we don’t have  a dog-they are shocked. Some she walks daily. Some periodically.She has been doing it for a few years now. It sure has shown us how responsible she is, an we love having them all visit! From Boxers to Shiatsus to Jack Russel Terriers to Labradors and so many more, we enjoy seeing how they have made her into the dog lover that she is today :) Everyone said the dogs really enjoyed their treats. Looks like I’ll have to make another batch, all 30 are gone!

It was a cute way for her to deliver these to all her canine friends. These are only a portion of them. My son said we should call this recipe “Bone Appetit”.
I love it!
What a fitting name.

    Those look like awesome treats! I have never been “brave” enough to try puppy-icing (other than some carob drizzle), but will have to give it a try – that looks great. I shared your link in the round-up at http://creativityunmasked.blogspot.com.au/2012/08/cupcakes-and-pupcakes.html :)
