Happy Tuesday! Hard to believe that it’s almost August, right?! I’m just happy that summer is here, the sun is out, and the days are long.
A few weeks ago, the folks at The Experiment contacted me to see if I’d like to check out the book Dinner for Dogs, which features recipes for home-cooked meals for your dog. I jumped at the chance because I love cooking for Teton and pet nutrition is something I love learning about.
Dinner for Dogs author Henrietta Morrison concocted 50 recipes for every meal from breakfast to dinner and snacks in between. One of my favorite things about Dinner for Dogs is the detail that Morrison puts into her introduction. She covers calorie intake, dog food labels, and even poop(!) before outlining her many recipes.
I love the content of Dinner for Dogs, but I also think it’s stinkin’ adorable! There are fun illustrations on each page that bring the recipes to life and make it a fun book to flip through. One of my favorite sections is the one on vegetables and fruits – what can I say? I love cartoon veggies.
Last weekend I made a fun treat recipe.
It’s been hot here (well, hot for a dog like Teton who has about 12 layers of fur) so I thought the Quick Doggy Ice Cream would be a nice treat to cool The Little Blogger off!
This is definitely one of the easier recipes in Dinner for Dogs. If it doesn’t seem that exciting, don’t worry – there are tons more recipes that feature more unique ingredients.
After just a few hours in the freezer, the Quick Doggy Ice Cream cubes were ready to be devoured!
And devoured they were.
(This was a particularly fun recipe because I got to use fresh blueberries from my garden!)
