Peanut Butter Dog Treats

I've baked these peanut butter dog treats for the pooch before.

They were received with such enthusiasm that I decided to make a double batch - they're so easy you'll quickly get the knick-knack of them. 

Bailey seems to have a sixth sense - knowing when something I'm baking is intended for him, he then pesters me in the kitchen, dogging my every step.

Of course his dogged efforts eventually pay off and he gets rewarded with some freshly baked biscuits.

I store them in a glass cookie jar adorned with pretty ribbons and a cute button...I couldn't decide between the little sitting dog or the dog bone button…

…so I went for both...

Individually wrapped in clear plastic bags with a ribbon looped over the top and a button attached, these peanut butter dog treats would make a lovely Christmas gift for a friend who is dog-crazy.

Or hang it on the tree for Fido so your four legged friend gets a treat along with the rest of the family on Christmas morning.

Something Fishy

Christmas is approaching so quickly this year I'm certain I must be dreaming.

No need to cast around for further inspiration, these cat treats are the perfect little gift to catch the attention of your furry feline friends.

Turn the oven to 180ÂșC.
Combine the following 4 ingredients:
1 can tuna, drained,
1 C nutty wheat flour,
1 egg,
1 T olive oil.

Mix together, roll out and press and then cut into cute fish shapes.
Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 12-15 minutes until brown.

These treats keep for up to 3 weeks in the fridge…oh, and your pooch will be fishing to try and have a few thrown his way too. 
Bailo goes through all of his tricks without being asked to in order to try and have a few of these biscuits released in his direction.
On a scale of 1 to 10, he gives them four paws up.

Of course, my favourite part is embellishing the cookie jar with a lovely handmade label adorned with these 2 fish buttons
The perfect fi(ni)shing touch!
