Romeo. He might look big, but he's only a year old!

I know this isn’t exactly decor related, but it is home related.  We have been shopping for some Christmas gifts for our puppy, Romeo.  We have gotten a few treats and bones, and a new sheepskin bed.  But, dog toys and goodies are EXPENSIVE!  The other day I came accross a psot on Apartment Therapy for a bunch of homemade dog treats that are owner tested and approved.  Not only do the posters say that the treats are less expensive, but also that their pets love them.  I think I’m going to give it a try, and if Romeo approves, I may even give some out for Christmas gifts to other pet owners on my list.  This is the recipe that I am going to start with:

Peanut Butter Doggie Bones
Ingredients:
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup low-fat milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well.

Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.
