Don't forget your furry friend

Make sure your furry friends have some Christmas treats, too.

Homemade dog biscuits:

5 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup wheat bran
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup nutritional yeast, optional
1/2 cup non fat dry milk
2 eggs
4-5 cups broth, homemade is richer in flavor
1/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 tablespoons active yeast
1 tablespoon sugar

Mix together the water, sugar and active yeast.  Set aside to allow to activate.
Mix together the dry ingredients.
Add the wet ingredients and yeast mixture.
Mix well.
Roll out dough and cut into cookie shapes.
Place on greased cookie sheets and bake at 350 for about an hour.
Remember, they will harden some as they cool.
You do want them hard.

These are great for your pet and you know what's in them so you can feel comfortable feeding them to him or her.  They are one fourth to one third cheaper than most store brands.

Crunchy Cat Treats:

1 can undrained tuna
1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour
1/3 cup water

Mix the ingredients until a dough forms.  Roll out on a parchment lined sheet until about 1/4 inch thick.  Cut into small pieces using a pizza cutter.
Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.  Will continue to harden as they cool.
Let your kitty enjoy.
MUCH less expensive than commercially made treats.
