With that hot time of year here, I thought this would be a great time to share some ‘cool’ doggie recipes! This summer heat gets to all of us and our canine companions too so here are some homemade summer treat recipes with coolness in mind!

Peanutty Pupcicles

1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Fruity Yogurt Treats
2 kiwi fruit — mashed, or jar baby food fruit
8 ounces strawberry yogurt — or other

Frozen Peanut Butter Yogurt Treats
32 ounces vanilla yogurt
1 cup peanut butter

Put the peanut butter in a microwave safe dish and microwave until melted. Mix the yogurt and the melted peanut butter in a bowl. Pour mixture into cupcake papers and freeze.

Icy Paws
2 cartons plain or vanilla yogurt (32 oz each)
1 small can tuna in water (8oz.)
2 tsp. garlic power
24 3 oz. plastic cups (not paper)

Open yogurt, if they are full to the top use a spoon & scoop out one cup. (these will be
frozen as plain yogurt). Put half of the can of tuna in each yogurt container add the garlic
power (1 tsp. in each) & stir thoroughly.
Use a spoon & scoop the mixture into the cups. Place on a tray & freeze
overnight. Makes about 24 treats.

VARIATIONS:
Mix in garlic powder, brewers yeast & fennel seed. Veggie Delight: Mix in cooked peas
or other vegetables.
Chicken Icy Paws: use canned chicken instead of tuna
Potassium Boost: Add in a mashed banana.

These recipes also work great stuffed in a Hong. Best served outside, they can get a little messy. 😀
