Dog Bone Biscuits

Have you met Charlie?   He is now 7 months old and he is turning out to be the sweetest, most loving, most adorable little thing ever.  Its no surprise that he is my Valentine.  We’re going to have a play date at the dog park Tuesday afternoon.
Charlie likes long walks around the lake, sunbathing, stealing socks, candle lit rooms, and warm fuzzy blankets.  He enjoys lounging on the couch and watching TV with me after dinner.   It’s fun watching Modern Family with him because he has a little crush on Stella.  He also likes Vampire Diaries, especially when the wolves are around.  But his favorite show is Planet Earth.
Probably like any other dog, Charlie absolutely loves peanut butter.  He gets all excited when he sees me pulling out the peanut butter jar from the cupboard.  He gets sad when I make a peanut butter jelly sammie for myself without letting him have a lick of the spoon.

These doggie biscuits are super easy to make.  The dough is very forgiving.  You can keep re-rolling the dough over and over to cut out your shapes.  They make the whole house smell like peanut butter.  Charlie was going insane in the kitchen because of the aroma.  He sat and watched the oven waiting for my timer to go off.  He was more polite than usual.  Once I pulled the biscuits out of the oven, he patiently waited until I offer him a piece.  He sat without whining while I took photos of the biscuits.

I could tell you that Charlie loved the biscuits, but I think the photo below explains it all.  Just look at that precious face.  How can you not fall in love with the little guy?

    Love the biscuits…love Charlie…especially in the photo of him licking his chops. I have a little furry girl myself (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) and I’m not sure she would wait so patiently for these treats :)

    • Thanks, Anita! Hadley looks beautiful! It took Charlie many many hours of practice to stop begging for treats. Happy Valentine’s Day!

    I’m so glad you posted this. I have a 1 year old french/english bulldog and she’s so cute that I can’t help but put her at the end of my posts like you did here with Charlie, who is, indeed, super adorable. Mine loves peanut butter treats (and apples!) Take care.

    • I just looked at your website, and omg your dog is so cute! Charlie loves apples as well, especially the tart granny smith apples :)

    I just found this and want to try making them for our sweet little Sadie. She also loves peanut butter and so we save our empty peanut butter jars (plastic) for her to lick out. She is so cute as she walks off with her treat, her tail wagging happily! She can’t reach the whole way to the bottom, so I try to scrape that off onto the sides before I give it to her, but the rest of the container is spotless when she is done!

      Sadie sounds adorable! I’ve never met a pup who didn’t LOVE peanut butter. I hope Sadie enjoys the treats!

    Charlie is a handsome critter! Since he seems to love these biscuits I will have to make them for my Bailey boy — he just took a liking to peanut butter!
