Five Cups of Unbleached Flour
One Jar of Applesauce (25 ounces - All Natural)
2 Cups of Oatmeal - Uncooked
3 Tablespoons of Cinnamon
½ Cup of All-Natural Peanut Butter
2 Tablespoons of Vegetable Oil
2 Tablespoons of Honey
1/4 Cup of Milk
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl
combine flour and oatmeal, blend. Next add
peanut butter, applesauce, oil, honey and
cinnamon. Mix well. Roll dough on a flat surface
(about 1/4 inch thick). Using a cookie cutter, cut
out shapes and place on an un-greased baking
sheet. Use any shape cookie cutter that you
wish...I used a poodle! Next combine milk and
egg in a small bowl. Mix well. Brush tops of cookie
with the milk & egg mixture (this will add a bit of
flavor and a nice shine!). Bake cookies for
approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool before
serving. Store extra cookies in an air-tight
container. Makes approximately five dozen treats!
When my Beagle, Bunny Roo, passed away, I was heart broken. I couldn't even imagine
adopting another old Beagle. After all, nothing could replace my precious Bunny.
However, as my husband says, "Never Say Never!" One Saturday I decided to go to a
HART dog adoption event. I had no intention of adopting another dog so soon after
Bunny Roo's death...but little did I know what awaited me. I saw Penny the Beagle the
second I walked into the room. She was a tan and white old Beagle, very similar to Bunny.
I was told that her family had decided to drop her at the pound because they wanted a
new puppy and didn't want the expense of two dogs! How cruel. How someone could
abandon a dog for such a stupid reason was beyond me. I could tell that Penny was
depressed. She didn't wag her tail, she wouldn't even look up when I spoke to her. She
just sat there, sad and shaking. Of course, after hearing Penny's story, I had to rescue
her. This old pup deserved to live out her golden years in a loving, caring environment.
Since I had adopted from HART before, I was allowed to take Penny home that very day.
Sadly, Penny was only with me for two years. Though she wasn't with me long, I will
always carry her in my heart and I find comfort in knowing that Penny was treated like a
princess for the last two years of her life. Rest in Peace Penny. I miss you.
