Christmas Cookie Dog Treats

If you are feeding yourself well, shouldn’t you feed your best friend well to?  Your best furry friend that is! My dog is the light of my life and I spoil her accordingly.  This was my first Keebler Cookie Day with my new furry friend, so I had to make sure she felt included as well!

What is Keebler Cookie Day?  You might find yourself asking that right about now.  Well believe it or not, my family has been making cookies for a long, long time.  You all might be familiar with the brand Keebler.  Well, the man who started the company, was my great-great-great-great grandfather.  A little outdated, I know, but still, pretty dang cool I think.

So, back to cookie day.  Every year around Christmas, my Mom’s side of the family (aka the Keebler side), all get together and bake cookies.  Now this is not “just for fun” baking.  We take this day very seriously.  This year alone, we baked 804 cookies.  In the past, we have baked over 1,000.  This day is intense and about as self indulgent as it gets.

Of course, with my new addition to the family, Brindle, I needed to make sure she gets her own treats too.  I wanted to make it simple and quick.  That is what brought me to make these sweet and simple treats that your dog will love.  I, of course, gave Brindle one after they were done baking.  Brindle ate it, and I found her licking the floor (where she dropped the treat) constantly for about 30 minutes after I gave her the treat.

That is when I knew.  This treat is dog tested, and dog approved.

Brindle was a stray found by police in Philadelphia.  She was taken to ACCT, where she was scheduled to be euthanized due to her deformed eye.  Luckily, before that date came, a shelter local to me adopted Brindle from ACCT and put her up for adoption at their no kill shelter.

I was scrolling through petfinder.com and was applying for dogs over the summer.  A few answered and declined my application, but when I hit Brindle, I filled out the application, and about 2 hours later, I was approved.  Two days later, I brought her home for our foster to adopt period.  Basically, this meant Brindle would stay with us so we could make sure she was a good fit for our family.  It usually lasts about 2 weeks, I signed the adoption papers 3 days later because I knew she was just too perfect.  I have not second guessed that decision since.

I am blessed with my 10 month old pup and I love to spoil her! So here it is!
