It seems like from the moment it December 1st comes around, our lives literally turn into chaos. Between cutting down & decorating our Christmas tree, more parties than I can keep track of, seasonal events/outings and just regular old daily life – sometimes it’s easy to get wrapped up and let some things go. This time of year my poor dog Milo is one of them. He’s a member of the family, of course, but since we’re out of the house so much, he doesn’t get as much attention during the holidays as he usually does simply because we are so busy.
When I manage to sneak a little free time, I always like to do something a little extra special for Milo – especially this time of the year. I want him to know how much he means to us and that even though we may not be around quite as much, we still love him to the moon and back. I decided to make him some of his favorite treats recently so that he knows how much he’s loved. They’re super easy to make and they were a huge hit with Milo.
Here’s what you need:
- 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup smashed bananas
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup oats
- 2 tablespoons water
Here’s what you do:
1. Mix all your ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
2. Roll out your dough onto a floured piece of parchment paper.
3. Cut out your biscuits with cookie cutters.
5. Fill up your pups stocking!
As much as I love making homemade treats for Milo (and I really do), they don’t fare so well in his Christmas stocking. Cue his favorite treat of all time – Purina Beggin’ Strips (25oz)! Oh man, he loves his Beggin’s Strips!
And they really are the perfect stocking stuffer.
Milo is like one of my babies, so why not spoil him on Christmas just like I spoil my human children? I shopped at Walmart and saved myself a bundle. The savings make me as happy as the Beggin’ Strips make Milo!
Of course Milo deserves something special every day, but I really do try to make Christmas a bit more special – just like I do for my children.
What kinds of gifts do you plan on giving to your pets this Christmas?
