During Sunday’s post when I wrote about the dog’s diet, I mentioned I would share about their night-time treats.
Every night around 9 PM I make myself a snack, it seemed only fair since I was eating, that the dogs should get a treat too.
Delilah took to 9 PM treat time, like a Labrador takes to food, (or large bodies of water.) Needless to say, it’s not possible for you to forget snack time.
Over the years the treats have evolved. What started out as raw hide, changed to twisted pork hide and after watching in horror as Delilah lodged a large piece of pork hide in her mouth, I decided we needed to find a kinder treat.
Since we were trying to help the dogs lose weight, I switched to a lower calorie treat. On occasion I will stuff a Kong with pineapple and yogurt, but lately my go to treat has been the stuffed white bones.
Now they are washed out every morning and I frost one end with pumpkin and stick it in the freezer. When I get home from work, I fill the rest of the bone and freeze it until snack time.
Most nights the bones are filled with either applesauce or yogurt, but as I mentioned in my Sunday post the place where we buy our raw food has a nutritionist, she prefers something called Kefir. (Sounds like reefer.)
Of course, you can always make yourself a treat as well.
I love things that I can make that I can also share with my dogs, is there any particular food that you make that you share with your furry ones?
