    This recipe is heaven like! I enjoyed it and my dog loved it!

    I was looking for dog treats recipe which had some extra dietary fiber and I found this recipe on your site just in time.

    Made this yesterday and had to come back here to brag a little he he.

    My doggie loved it so much that he was jumping around me the whole time while I was in the kitchen preparing it and when it was finally done after a long dog hours we both started eating it.

    He got a smaller piece but the rest of the tray is reserved for him and him alone. But like you wrote this is for treats and no matter how much my dog gives me puppy eyes he cant get a big piece at once.

    Anyway this is an awesome recipe and my dog says Whof! Keep posting things like this please 🙂
