Weekly Drool Recipe: Pumpkin Please Pupsicles

Pumpkin pie is a staple of the Fall and Holiday season. And BestBullySticks.com knows no matter how cool it may get, ice cream goes great with pumpkin pie! Because we know that you love your dog, we found a recipe from Kirby the Dorkie that lets you include your four-legged family member! These quick and yummy treats are like mixing the pumpkin pie with the ice cream! Whip up these Pumpkin Please Pupsicles for your pooch this Fall!

Ingredients:
1 – 15 oz can pure pumpkin purée**
Same amount of vanilla yogurt
2 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:
1. Pour pumpkin into a large bowl.

2. Fill empty can with vanilla yogurt and add to the bowl.

3. Add cinnamon.

4. Mix well.

**Don’t use pumpkin pie filling which is full of ingredients dogs don’t need. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Recipe Notes: If using plain yogurt add 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract.

It’s that easy! This way has a little twang to it from the yogurt which is ok since Kirby likes yogurt but make sure your dog does. For a frozen treat you have several choices: use your ice cream maker, freeze and stir in thirty minute intervals until it has a creamy consistency, or spoon into molds or little plastic cups, cover with saran wrap and freeze.

Thanks to Debby & Kirby at Kirby the Dorkie for sharing their great recipe and photos!

Weekly Drool Recipe: Seri’s Grain-Free Dog Treats via Tasty Yummies Blog

Increasingly, gluten-free diets are becoming common in American households. BestBullySticks.com knows that these grain-free meals aren’t just for the humans anymore, either. Beth at Tasty Yummies blog has been eating gluten-free for 7 years and shares her great recipes with her readers. By a stroke of irony, Beth’s Miniature Bull Terrier, Seri has a gluten allergy and needs grain-free food and treats. Beth wanted to create a special 2nd birthday surprise for her special dog and that’s what she has shared with us today—Seri’s Grain Free Dog Treats! Keep reading to learn more about Seri, Beth and these great treats!

Seri came into our lives nearly two years ago at a time that I never thought I would be getting a new dog. It was much sooner than either one of us imagined that we would be doing the puppy thing again!

We patiently waited for the litter to be born to find out if we would be getting a pup and we soon found out that we were in fact getting a sweet little white baby with the tiniest little spot on her bum! We thought long and hard about a name and ultimately decided on Seri (inspired by the word Serigraphy – another word for screen printing). We picked Seri up the day before my birthday and she was so tiny and sweet. We of course fell in love with her instantly.

Seri is a very independent dog and for all of the amazing cuddle sessions that we have, she also loves to be on her own, either in one of her crates or wrapped up in a pile of blankets in our bed. Oh and Seri has a serious, serious love for playing ball. If that dog sees a ball she goes nuts. No matter how tired she is or where we are, if we pull out one of her balls, she is ready for it. Seri has this ability to make everyone around her smile and she walks with this bounce in her step that makes me happy every time I see it.

If you can believe the irony in this, Seri is also on a gluten-free diet. Just a month or two into having her, even with the most expensive organic dry food money could buy, Seri just seemed to have issues with grains. She would be a bit itchy. After speaking with her and a holistic veterinarian we decided to make the switch to a grain-free all raw meat diet. Seri’s skin, coat and all around health immediately responded to the diet and we have never gone back since.

Seri’s Grain-Free Dog Treats: Gluten-free, Grain-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free
(Makes about 2 dozen or so, depending on the size)

Ingredients
1 cup potato starch, plus a little more for rolling
1 cup almond flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
dash of salt
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (chunky or creamy)
1/4 cup low-sodium beef stock (you can also use veggie stock or water)
1/4 cup shredded carrots read more…

Weekly Drool Recipe: Peanut Butter Pupcakes

Today’s Best Bully Sticks Weekly Drool Recipe teams up with Sprinkle Bakes blogger and author Heather Baird to bring your pups a delectable birthday surprise. So, shhh… don’t tell them, but we’re making Peanut Putter Pupcakes!

Of course your precious pup is special, so why not make them a special treat on their special day? Heather was kind enough to share the birthday recipe she made for her pug, Churro. Whether it’s your dog’s birthday, adoption anniversary, or just a fun treat, Sprinkle Bakes’ Peanut Butter Pupcakes are low-fat, dog-friendly treats that are sure to let you dog know they’re loved! Here is Heather’s original post:

It’s Churro’s birthday!

Well, sort of.

We don’t really know when his birthday is.  And we don’t know exactly how old he is either, but we still like to celebrate the day we welcomed him into our family. Churro is a rescue -yes, a pound puppy.  His history is somewhat of a mystery to us, but we were told that he came from a pretty bad situation. You’d never know that from his demeanor. He’s the sweetest real-life teddy bear you’ll ever meet! And he instantly fit right in with Biscuit-the-pug and our three kitty-cats. Words cannot express how gentle and loving he is.  It breaks my heart that there are so many animals of similar docility that get taken to the shelter.  I don’t like to think about that too much, but I felt that I must mention it.

Maybe someone out there looking for a furbaby will remember Churro’s happy ending and decide to rescue. read more…
