I once made a mini mouse on a piece of cheese ornament. The cheese was a yellow sponge cut into a pie shape and the mouse on it was made with two small pompoms and some felt.

I just bought a dog bone cookie cutter at my Ben Franklin's in the cake decorating dept. It is plastic and I paid 69 for it. I believe Walmart has them also. Here is another Doggie Treat recipe for anyone who is interested. I also have recipes for Kitty Treats and Horse Treats that I can post if anyone is interested.


1 pkg. dry yeast
1/2 c. warm water
1/2 c. bran
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. white flour
1/4 c. cornmeal
1 tsp. salt
1 small can tuna in oil
1/2 c. powdered milk

Dissolve yeast in water. Combine dry ingredients, add yeast and tuna. Stir and squeeze until well mixed. Roll out, cut into shapes. Bake at 325 for 30 minutes.

Hi everyone! I finally located my recipe for dog biscuits that a few of you have requested. So glad that you enjoyed my pet projects. So here it is Birthday Bones

2 c whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 c natural peanut butter
1 c skim milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly browned. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container.

I thought that a bone shaped cookie cutter would be a good thing to use but I haven't found one yet. If anyone knows where I could get one please let me know. Thanx Eileen from Ontario

Subject Re Attention Dog & Cat Lovers!

Sorry, I don't have a biscuit hanger around here and no time to make one but here's the Liver Treats Recipe.

This is a soft Treat, not a hard dry biscuit. My dogs are seniors now so I eliminate salt. Also I sometimes add wheat germ because it's good for the skin.

1 lb liver
Water .. this is not an exact recipe ... you just judge the amount
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup corn meal
Seasonings (salt, garlic, whatever you like) can't smell the garlic on the pets...strange! and it's supposed to be a natural flea deterrent????

I put the whole pieces of liver in a large frying pan with about 1 1/2 cups of water and simmer it until it's cooked. Then cut the liver into 1" pieces and put them and the water into a blender and blend until it's all liquid. Mix the flour & cornmeal together and add seasonings and finally the blended liver/water mixture and mix very well. It should be llike a pancake batter consistency...if too thick, add more water and if too thin, add more flour/cornmeal. Spread it on a cookie sheet and bake for abaout 20-30 min. at 350F.

When cooled cut it into pieces ...1" squares or smaller for small dogs and cats and into larger pieces for large dogs. I have small dogs so this recipe makes too much for me to use up in a short time so I keep a small container in the fridge and freeze the rest and store it in the freezer, baring it out as needed. I'm sure the pets will enjoy these. Mine sit n front of the fridge all day when I've made them!
