It’s that time of year: there is a chill in the air, leaves are falling, and for us Seattleites, rain is a daily occurrence. With Halloween just around the corner, social media is all abuzz with pumpkin spice latte selfies, pictures of small children posing in pumpkin patches, and recipes for pumpkin bars, muffins, pies (I could go on and on – there seems no end to the culinary gymnastics of the pumpkin). No other gourd captures the spotlight like this one. It is no surprise, then, that pumpkin supplements for pets are at the forefront of pet blogs and Facebook groups. Since I’m a shameless “joiner”, this blog is no exception. This month, Chewy sent us a pumpkin supplement, Weruva Pumpkin Patch Up!, to review.
I’ve been quite disturbed at the prevalence of dog treat and food recalls. In 2015, there have been seven recalls of dog treats and food, and we’re not even halfway through the year. With that, coupled with my pooch’s sensitive stomach, I thought I would try my hand at homemade dog treats. I make cookies for my family on a fairly regular basis, so how hard could a dog treat be?
For my first try, I thought I’d go with something simple, so I found an easy-peasy recipe on Food.com. I had been saving the recipe for quite some time, and since
I had some free time I was feeling ambitious enough to make the time, I made a batch of pumpkin dog treats for my girl.
