Not even kidding! I found these amazing dog bone trays for $6.95 and have made 3 recipes for Tomlin. They are soooo easy and she loves them. The tray comes with a silicone insert and a spout so you can easily pour in the ingredients, freeze it, and then pop the bones right out. Seriously, does it get easier than that? I wonder what Phil would think if I started making his meals this way? hmmmmmm ;-)
Ok back to reality. The first set of bones I made for Tomlin were chicken flavored. I mixed a cup of water with a cup of fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth. I poured the mixture into the little spout and froze it over night.
The second recipe I made was with creamy (salt-free) peanut butter, greek yogurt, and about a teaspoon of honey. I mixed all three together and spread a dollop into the silicon tray. These are Tomlin’s favorite; she can finish an entire bone in less than 5 seconds (we’ve timed her).
The third type of bone that I made for Tomlin required a trip to the store. So far with the other recipes I already had the ingredients on hand. For this recipe I needed baby food and this was a first time shopping experience for me. I was blown away with the variety of flavors but glad that there were so many options so that I could make sure to get something soft for Tomlin’s stomach (she’s a little sensitive in that department). Not knowing what brands are the best, maybe y’all can give me some suggestions on that one for the future, I purchased several flavors of Beech Nut. Thank you Jesus that the guy at the register didn’t ask me anything about my “baby”; otherwise I would have had to admit I’m one of those pet-crazy ladies who makes dog bones for her 4-legged child. I mean I will admit it openly, but I don’t want my weekly cashier judging me for it lol. Anyways, this time I mixed the baby food with the greek yogurt and peanut butter. This was another cheap and easy hit!

On a different note, remember when I shared some collars with you? Well I finally decided on one and it arrived a couple weeks ago. Look how precious Tomlin looks in her new jewelry :-) If you want to spoil you pup, check out Bow Wow Couture on Etsy!
Hope you’re having a great day!!!
