There aren’t 500 steps.
But today I did make the dogs some treats.
Step 5: Add desired amount of peanut butter.
This you can eat!
Step 6: Mix it all up!
Step 7: Add apple slices! Or whatever fruit your dog enjoys. Just so long as it isn’t grapes or raisins.
Step 8: Start spooning it into a Kong!
Step 9: 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.
Step 10: Place Kongs in freezer, because frozen treats take a little longer to devour and thus they keep your dog busy longer. ;]
Step 11: 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. ;]
