Merry Christmas

Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful day filled with family, laughter and happy memories in the making.

Kona will be celebrating her first Christmas at our house in the morning, and then in Oakville with my family. She’s already in the holiday spirit and even gave out gifts to many of her doggie friends.

I helped her put together some packages of homemade dog biscuits.

And by “I helped” I mean that she sat a foot away from me and watched intently as I made the dough, rolled it out, cut the biscuits and baked them, then packaged the cooled biscuits in some cellophane bags with ribbon. She’s an excellent kitchen assistant.

I found this dog biscuit recipe online and used the medium and small sized cookie cutters from this set. The recipe was straightforward and the dough very easy to work with.

While the effort to cut them all out was time consuming, it was well worth the effort. Kona doesn’t have the most discerning taste (see this post about things she’s eaten), but she is definitely showing a preference for these cookies over other less exciting treats. And we’ve gotten some great feedback from Pippa and Emma as well. Plus, the cost to make them was a lot less than the bags of dog biscuits we’ve been buying. So I’ll definitely be making these again!

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!!!
