Pumpkin Peanut Butter Pup Cookies

#30DaysOfPumpkin can not exclude  Sydney. These whole wheat dog treats are oil free and protein packed, a fun healthy treat for your four legged friends. 


Just over a year ago we adopted Sydney a 10 month old Australian Cattle Dog Labrador mix. She had had no training and had awful manors. She was not house broken, ran away constantly, did not listen to a single command, and chewed everything. She was seriously the puppy from hell. Causing us thousands of dollars in damage to our rental. We came really close to giving up on her. Then just like that, practically overnight Sydney turned into the sweetest, most amazing dog I have ever owned.

I've talked you all about Ollie a ton on here, and how he died last July. At the time I did not think I could ever love another dog as much as I did him.... but Sydney is starting to fill that hole in our family. Though we've had her for over a year, I feel like she has only recently become a big part of our lives.

Want to know what I love most about owning a dog? Coming home to an empty home and having her great me at the door. Doesn't matter if I have been gone a week, or just ran out to check the mail. The second I walk through the door that dog is jumping all over me licking me like it's been years since she has seen me last. She loves me even on my worst days, and she is always happy.


My youngest son has prepared these cookies for Sydney a couple of times now and each time she gobbles them up. Made with wheat flour, eggs, peanut butter, and pumpkin, these treats are easy and super healthy!

  3. It's been 2 months since we lost Ebi. I still cry. And watching Ginger roam the house looking for her makes it worse. Maybe I need these biscuits for myself!

    1. I still cry every time I think of Ollie. Sydney was a little lost without him for a few weeks. But she was much younger than him and only lived with us a year before he passed away. I imagine it's tough for your other dog! *Hugs*

  4. I'm definitely making these cookies for my lil Abby. I'd never had a dog before and now, I can't imagine life without her. Just reading this post made me teary eyed (that's how big of a sap I've become over pets). I can totally relate to feeling depressed/stressed/angry about my day and it all melts away the minute I get home and Abby is running to the front door to see me. Dogs are the best!
