Summer Treat

Here's a little recipe for a nice hot summer day treat.

Get one kong, put some peanut butter into the smaller bottom hole to plug it up. Then in a bowl mix in one egg, 1-2 spoonfuls of plain probiotic yogurt, and one spoonful of cottage cheese (optional). Pour the mix into the Kong almost to the top. Then plug up with more peanut butter.

Pop it into the freezer and let freeze til it's rock solid. Then give in place of a meal.

Have no worry about it leaving a mess. Your Havs will be constantly licking it preventing it from making a mess.

My guys now get this once every couple of weeks. They love it.

Actually I see it as I'm more lucky to have these wonderful guys. Right now Brando has one of his little toys and is running with it through the house. Shaking it, tossing it, then chasing it, then running like hell. You really need to just pause, enjoy the moment, chuckle and marvel at how much fun these little guys are.

We were just outside for a walk and it started to thunder and lightening but no rain. I was about 50m from home when all of a sudden it started to pour so we made a mad dash for home. We were all soaked but they seemed to enjoy it lol

Do you find that eating that treat affects their stools at all? Lola eats mostly kibble and some cream cheese when I need to bribe her. I wonder if the yogurt will give her runny stools. I do a kong filled with cream cheese and some jerky treats hidden inside, then into the freezer.

I picture this all over in Sully's hair! I bet most dogs would lap it up, my old Papillons would have, Sully just won't eat it if it's not jerky.

Not difference in my guys stools. I usually give them a spoonful of yogurt with their breakfast 2 or 3 times a week. I would do a small test by giving them some yogurt and see how they do. If they are okay, then you are good to....go....

I use the mid size Kong Ryan. The small ones are way to tiny for my guys. It's the next size up.

I doubt it will make a mess in Sully's hair. On a hot day, they will be licking the kong constantly because it's nice and cold. It won't even really have a chance to melt.

Thanks for the recipe, Daniel. I'll have to go get the larger Kong before I can try it, I've only got the small one.

I know many of our Havs enjoy playing with and eating ice cubes so, here's another "cool" recipe to keep our fur babies more comfortable in the coming months.

Pupsicles

Place some dry kibble* in an ice cube tray. Fill with chicken broth and cover with plastic wrap; let freeze. A small Bully stick could be stuck in, too. Your fur babies will love them on those "dog days" of summer!
*For an extra special treat, small pieces of Bailey's jerky could be used in addition to, or in place of, the kibble.
