There aren't 500 steps.
But today I did make the dogs some treats.
Treats that they are anxiously waiting to freeze.
Here's what I did, but first note that...
It's not really a recipe, just me grabbing things the dogs love, mixing it up, and stuffing it into a few Kongs. lol!
But here it is anyway.
Step 1: Find yourself at least one hungry pup.
This girl always has something on her nose.
Petal will do.
Though, please note, that she's not a good food critic. She'll eat just about anything you give to her and she always looks like this when something's being made in the kitchen.
Step 2: Get the Kongs out.
Hopefully you don't have more Kongs than you have dogs. I'm still not sure how I ended up with four Kongs when I only have three dogs.
Step 3: Gather together some Peanut Butter, Yogurt and Apple slices.
Oh, and don't forget the Honey*.
*Honey not pictured because I forgot it.
: Add desired amount of yogurt to a bowl.
See how amazing it looks?
Too bad it doesn't taste amazing. At all
But the dogs enjoy it.
: Add desired amount of peanut butter.
This you can eat!
: Mix it all up!
: Add apple slices! Or whatever fruit your dog enjoys. Just so long as it isn't grapes or raisins.
: Start spooning it into a Kong!
: As you're filling the second Kong, remember about the honey that you forgot and quickly add that in! Mix it up and pretend like you never forgot about it.
: Place Kongs in freezer, because frozen treats take a little longer to devour and thus they keep your dog busy longer. ;]
And no, I have no idea who will get that fourth Kong...
: Look at this face and tell him he can't have them yet because they need to freeze first.
Then let him lick the bowl clean because you feel guilty for denying the poor starving Collie some food.
Then when the girls get jealous, you'll have to let them lick the spoons clean.
Leave the treats in the freezer long enough to get good and frozen. Then pull them out when the dogs are destroying the house or have worked themselves up into a barking frenzy because the wind blew a tumble weed down the street. Or maybe you just got back from a walk or playing outside and your dog needs to cool off. They'll have a tasty, distracting, and cold treat and you'll have a few minutes of peace. ;]
