Homemade Dog Treats
Homemade Dog Treats

My little Westie Zoe has what I like to call “little dog mouth”. Most small breed dogs seem to need extra dental cleanings and have horrid bad breath almost all the time. Since Zoe isn’t a chewer at all, she is no exception to this dog “rule”.

These homemade cookies have a light mint flavour to help discourage the bad breath. The key is to try to get your dog to chew these instead of inhaling them like Zoe, as she found them a delightful treat!

The winter here in Alberta is quite cold with the temperatures averaging around the minus 10 degree celsius range most days. So when we go outdoors, Zoe enjoys showing off her colorful knit sweater that my mother made for her. It takes a lot of fittings and adjustments to make one fit just right, and Zoe is always eager to wear it.
