Isn’t Brenna a cutie? She’s our beautiful lab mix that’s been with us for 10 years and she loves cookies. All the cookies I make aren’t for her, but she is an optimist and always thinks that the current batch is hers.
You probably noticed the shaved part of her leg. She was diagnosed with lymphoma in October and started treatment. Her veins aren’t easy to find, so they needed to shave some hair off to get to them.
It’s been up and down the past few months, but we’re hopeful that she’ll get better. She just got switched to a new treatment protocol and this one uses pills instead of needles so that’s a plus. Best of all, she’s playing more and being mischievous which lets us know that she’s feeling better.
Brenna update: She’s been in remission for about 6 months and is doing well. She is a bit of an oldster, but she is still bossing us all!
While she’s being treated it’s impossible to not spoil her a little. Plus, if a treat can get some oats, coconut oil, pumpkin, whole wheat and cranberries in her, it’s a win-win to me.
I love coming up with new flavors of dog biscuits for the pups to try. Feel free to play with the recipe. Use applesauce in place of pumpkin puree, blueberries instead of cranberries, and so on. Just make sure the end result is the texture of soft clay.
The most important thing is that you cook them long enough to dry them out well, or you’ll need to store some in the fridge or freezer so they don’t get moldy before you use them.
