    I don't know if you make your own doggie treats for your pups or not but I thought I would share this with you. I just found it today. So i've not tried any of them for the pups yet. They look pretty healthy though so I plan on too. Maybe this weekend.

    Hey Mitzs,

    I know I'm not Tinus, but I'd like to thank you for the link. Fits right into our line of work. I'll look a little closer later, but first glance looks like pretty good stuff. We feed our pets a natural diet, try to avoid anything artificial or chemical, and we supplement their diet with dehydrated fruits and vegetables. Have to try some of these out.

    Hey BB, your most welcome. Let me know what ones you try and what the dogs think of them. What kind of dogs do you have? There is a tuna fish one that I am thinking about making for my cat mario since it is the only fish he will eat and loves it. I can't open a can of tuna with out him between my feet. So he always get the juice. I get the kind that is packed in water.

    We've got three dogs of our own and an old cat. One's a small Sheltie, Chance we call him, that I found running loose on the streets down in the southern part of the city. Kind of odd, he had a stance like a show dog but didn't seem to even know what food or toys were. He was undernourished to the point that rickets were a concern. Poor little guy had a little trouble focusing his eyes together, had a bad bite, and congestive heart disease. Honestly, I thought he was a puppy, and a bag-o-bones at that, but he was about 8 months old. We think he was being raised as a toy breed for show and just didn't make the grade. He's the old guy, about 11 years.

    Our second is a 45 pound frisbee dawg named Breeze. Really lives up to her name. We got her from the pound when she was 7 weeks, she's 5 now. She was our first experiment on raising a dog on a completely natural diet. Raw bones and meat, fruit and vegetables, grains. Beautiful animal. That's momma's girl.

    Then our little one is a 5 pound Peke/Yorky cross named Prescious. Brought her home after her owner had passed. We kept her while he was in the hospital and were about the only other people she really knew. I like to take her up to the nursing home with me to visit with the residents there. Really makes their day and she just loves all the people.

    We've had Feather, the old cat, going on about 25 years now. I think she's about half blind and maybe a little deaf, but sometimes I swear she'll outlive me.

    I noticed a lot of the recipes had flour and cornmeal in them. Be careful feeding those to dogs with food allergies. Wheat, corn, and soy are major triggers for allergies. Most of them look pretty good for your average dog though. Thanks again, I'll let you know what we try.

    Thanks Mitzs. I do not have pups at the moment. There is Fanulin, 15 months, Eliandor, 25 months and Noa (mother of Eli) and she is 7.5 years. Since I do not breed myself, it will be probably another year or two for pups again.
    But also adult dogs just do anything for a nice cookie and mine are no different.
    Noa has her own sofa where she sleeps most part of the day. When Janny (my wife) opens the door to the cellar Noa does not respond. When Janny take some bread Noa sits in front of her within 15 seconds.
    Even when we take them for a walk in the forrest, the word "cookies" works magic, even when they are chasing a rabbit. You can literly see skitmarks in the sand.
    Thanks for the link. Looks good and a lot of choice. I'll try some of those.
