    Default Blueberries

    Who knew Sheldon likes blueberries. Kenzie blended some blueberries with a banana and Sheldon liked it I knew he likes banana's but I had no idea he would like blueberries. Just a thought will he now have blue poop?

    You might also see some blueberry skins come out. Baxter gets a Blueberry every time he potty's in the right place on the balcony

    Blueberries are a great, nutritious snack for pooches, they are high in antioxidants I give the boys frozen blueberries in some plain yogurt sometimes and they love it.

    Hi, both my guys love fruit, we give them banana, watermelon, strawberries, and blueberries, and yes they poop out Smurf poops. Lol. It freaked my husband out the first time he saw it. He came inside and asked me what I had fed them, because they had blue poops. Lol. He doesn't really pay attention to what I feed them, other than he buys the Fromm's Beef Kibble, and knows that in pretty anal about what they eat. They aren't allowed any table scraps, leftovers, other than when we have broccoli, carrots, green beans, cauliflower, or other vegetables, and they aren't allowed any store bought treats unless their all natural and approved by Mommy. He thinks I'm crazy, and my kids call me the crazy dog lady, but when my vet and other people say they look so healthy, and their coats are so soft and shiny, and their eyes are so clear, then I know I'm doing the right thing.

    Exactly! I love that Sheldon has so much energy now and his coat looks so good and soft. Sheldon doesn't get table scraps. Oh and the shedding has been knocked in half he doesn't shed nearly as much as he was. I am going to try watermelon this weekend and some strawberries I know he loves banana's doesn't like cantalope loves apples (provided they are peeled he doesn't like the peeling) blueberries. I make all Sheldon's treats now that way I know he is getting a healthy snack. I make him frozen banana yogurt treats peanut butter yogurt treats. Oh and can I give him Kiwi I have a daughter that loves kiwi????

    How can Sheldon not like cantaloupe, for shame . I keep some of that around at all times and when I get it out to have some Colossus just sits there going - whens my bite, I want a bite, give me my bite, I want my cantaloupe. If I dont give him some he follows me EVERYWHERE until I break down.

    Good to know they can have blueberries too. The things we learn on EBN!!!

    my guys love all those fruits you mentioned, and they also love some cooked vegetables, like broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and green beans, I usually just make a little extra at dinner time, and give them some with their evening kibble. If you like making your own homemade healthy snacks for them , you should try some of the recipes on the nutrition forum, there are a lot of really good easy to make recipes that members have shared, and they have natural ingredients like apple sauce , peanut butter, oats, and flour. I've tried some of these ones and they're good, you can eat them yourself.

    2 eggs
    1/2 cup canned pumpkin
    2 tablespoons dry milk
    1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    2 1/2 cups brown rice flour *
    1 teaspoon dried parsley (optional)


    Preheat oven to 350.


    In large bowl, whisk together eggs and pumpkin to smooth. Stir in dry milk, sea salt, and dried parsley (if using, optional). Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to form a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.


    Roll dough between 1/4 – 1/2″ – depending on your dog’s chew preferences, ask first – and use biscuit or other shape cutter to punch shapes, gathering and re-rolling scraps as you go. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down movement with fork, lightly pressing down halfway through dough. Bake 20 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog.


    * Brown rice flour gives the biscuits crunch and promotes better dog digestion. Many dogs have touchy stomachs or allergies, and do not, like many people I know, tolerate wheat.






    Peanut Butter and Banana Oat Drops by Gwen Burgart & Kim Forrest


    Ingredients
    4 cups rolled oats
    2 Tbsp ground flax seed
    2 medium very ripe bananas
    1/2 cup natural (no sugar or shortening added) peanut butter
    1/2 cup water


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
    Mix together oats, flax seed, bananas and peanut butter in an electric mixer. Add some water and mix well. Drop 1/2 teaspoon-sized drops onto greased cookie sheet or roll out and cut with a cookie cutter (let dough stand for a few minutes before rolling; it's sticky initially). Bake for 25 min or until golden brown.


    Doggie Peanut butter and Pumpkin cookies (wheat free)




    These are actually a combination of peanut butter and pumpkin, mixed in with white rice flour rather than conventional flour. It's a great alternative for those who may have an allergy to wheat but still want something tasty to munch on. You can find white rice flour in the baking aisle at your grocery store. I got mine at an Orowheat outlet so if you have one of those stores nearby, you may want to buy the flour there instead as it was a little cheaper in price.


    The nice thing about this recipe is you can make the dough ahead of time, then wrap it in plastic wrap and place in the fridge if you don't feel like baking them just yet. Refrigerating them also helps when you roll it out to cut into pieces. As you can see, I used heart and star cookie cutters


    With the holidays coming, I thought it might be fun to give these cookies as gifts for our own furry critters as well as our friend's and family's.


    Once again, this recipe is taken from the Doggie Dessert Chef website:


    Ingredients
    2 cups White Rice Flour
    1/2 cup Peanut Butter
    1 cup Pumpkin Puree
    2 Eggs
    1 teaspoon Cinnamon
    Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
    2. In a large bowl mix all ingredients one at a time, kneading well after each addition.
    3. Knead dough into ball and roll onto a floured surface 1/4 inch thick. Cut with the cookie cutter of your choice.
    4. Place on your prepared cookie sheet and bake for 10 to 15 minutes (actually took about 18-20 minutes in my oven). Cool and refrigerate.
    Makes 5 to 6 dozen small circles.

    The ones I make I got the recipe off here and the kids love them too LOL...they call it the skur treats because they are for the skin kids and the fur kids....They are so funny. I just love seeing him play like a puppy again and when I stopped all the store bought treats and started feeding him quality food and giving him the healthier snacks he plays twice as much as he use to. Doesn't shed half as much he is soft and to me he doesn't smell.
