We’re talking desserts today, doggy desserts that is! As I’ve said numerous times, little Miss Mollyanna (our Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix) is overweight. A lot. I’ve changed her to NUTRO Natural Choice Weight Management Small Bites dog food, but hubby constantly giving her table food and cracker treats is NOT helping at all.
So I look at it like this, since I can’t get him to quit giving her treats, how about making natural homemade treats to spoil this pampered pooch with?
In the new book Doggy Desserts: 125 Homemade Treats for Happy, Healthy Dogs by Cheryl Gianfrancesco, dog owners like us can rest easy knowing they are providing their pooch with a snack made with healthy ingredients. This beautiful book presents easy-to-do, fun recipes divided into six categories: cookies, bars, drop cookies, cakes, muffins, and frozen treats.
Cheryl is an avid cook and dog lover, and cooking for her dogs is one of her favorite passions. I’m thrilled that she’s sharing these tasty, wholesome doggy snacks and desserts that her own dogs love! With over 125 easy-to-make recipes, you’ll find that they are healthy, tasty and easy to make with ingredients you already have at home. There are several low-calorie, low-fat options for overweight dogs too, just like Molly!
The book has sections for cookies, bars, drop cookies, cakes, muffins, and frozen treats (something Molly adores) so there is literally something for every pooch!
The book is available August 8, 2017 and you can pre-order your copy here. We have a treat for our dog lovers out there though with a preview of some of the great recipes you will find in the book that you can make for your pets right now and try them out!
