This is Bentley with Allison at the end of class... he had a ball! She's the best trainer for teaching dogs and their owners what I call "life skills"...not just sitting, staying, and coming but things that may save their lives as well. She's got a great easy going personality that relaxes both the dogs and their owners.
Here's Bentley and me (love the knee brace!) going through his heeling and sitting routine at class. His tail looks like a little flag, doesn't it? LOL
We made these yummy treats to share with the class...and they are yummy! DH actually munched on one on the way to class...they smell as good as they taste and they're gluten-free! Yes, I ate one (or two) as well.
Gluten Free Peanut Butter Bacon Treats
I found the recipe online but can't remember where...as soon as I remember I will link it up. Super quick and easy to make.
1 c. oat flour (I made mine using the food processor)
1 c. brown rice flour (I milled mine in the elec. grain mill but it took a long time) You may also use reg. or whole wheat flour if you're not worried about them being gluten free.
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 T. honey
1/2 c. water
2 pieces crisply cooked bacon, crumbled very well
1 carrot, shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except for the flours, mix until well blended. Add oat and brown rice flours and mix again until all the flour is incorporated.
Roll out between two pieces of parchment or waxed paper or on a lightly floured surface to about 1/4" thickness.
Cut into squares or use a dog bone shaped cookie cutter as above.
Bake until crisp...Now here you will have to use your judgement. The original recipe said to bake 20-25 minutes but I baked them a bit longer. Cool in oven, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store about a week's worth in a tightly sealed container and freeze the rest until needed. (you can also share them with your doggie friends. They will love you for it!)
Our dogs loved them!! Here's Bentley waiting for them to come from the oven. He could smell the bacon and peanut butter and it was almost more then he could bear.
That's how It felt like when Blogger decided to break down on everybody. I stayed up late last night to make a card for Off the Wall Craftiness' Color Challenge OTWC#52 then couldn't get it posted or linked...bummer. Sorry, Kim...I tried.
Here's my card anyway . I thought those great nautical colors needed to have a boat to go with them! I hand stitched around the sails and boat for more definition. Love this Sailboat shaped card from the Cutting Cafe, it's one of my favorites!
