A season and reason for giving

As part pf For Paws twenty five days of Christmas we've started a collection of home cooked recipes for the Critters of Christmas, called, "One Dog's Kitchen".

We've asked our readers to send their best home cooked specialties; we'll publish them here so every family can bring their pet to the table this season for a special meal.

For each recipe received For Paws Hospice will deliver a meal to a hungry pet in time for the holidays. So here's your chance to share a gift that will make a difference in someone's life and spread some good cheer in the process.

To get you in the mood here's a frosty treat that is sure to warm the heart of your best friend.

Yogurt Pupsicles

From Puppy Tuff

Technically speaking dogs don’t eat dessert, they love snacks, but desserts as humans prefer them are loaded with things dogs shouldn’t or can’t have: chocolate, lots of sugar, too much dairy or in the case of a Double Chocolate Fudge Nut Sunday with whipped cream... No!

So we created this dessert (treat) that is both satisfying and just a little decadent, if you’re a dog.

You will need:

Cup cake tins with liners
Peanut butter
Vanilla yogurt


Start with 1 cup of yogurt in a bowl.  Add a tablespoon of honey, a ripe banana and 2 tablespoons of peanut butter. Mash together thoroughly.

Spoon the mixture into cup cake tins then, using your fingers, insert a small ball of peanut butter into the middle of each cup as a surprise frozen center. Cover loosely with aluminum foil and place in freezer for several hours.

To serve, peel the cup liners away and hand the treat to your very patient dog.
