Dog Days of August

by Vivian A

Since July was National Ice Cream month and the Dog Days of August are from July 3 through August 11–why not celebrate with homemade ice cream for your DOG?  Sure you can probably buy it at the grocery store but nothing says loving like homemade ice cream. Here’s the recipe for doggy ice cream. Take 32 oz. of vanilla or plain yogurt, 1 well mashed banana, 2 T. peanut butter and 2 T. honey.  Blend in a blender or food processor, pour into small paper cups and freeze until solid.

While you’re waiting for your pup cream to harden, you can ponder the  Dog Days of Summer which occur when the Dog Star is easiest for viewing. Or you can read the book Totally Fun Things to do with your Dog by Maxine Rock. She’d probably suggest serving your new creation at a Paw-ty.

Thanks Vivian!

I made the “doggy ice cream” for my Jack-Chi, Dutchie. He absolutely loved it! It was a good cool treat to give him after a hot evening walk.

What a fun idea! Milo and I may try this out this weekend. We’ll need some kind of treat now that we’re back from vacation.
