We all know that the route to our pets' hearts often leads directly through the stomach, so backing special treats is the perfect way to celebrate a doggy Valentine's Day.

 

Valentine's Day gift givers know that nothing can top the special touch of a homemade meal by candlelight. When it comes to Valentine's Day presents for dogs, I use the same concept and whip up a batch of homemade dog biscuits. The batch of dog cookies is fit for a king.

 

There’s a lot of truth in the adage about dogs being our best friends. With Valentines Day coming, wouldn’t it be sweet to treat your pooch to an extra-special delight?

 

This recipe for homemade dog biscuits could be just the thing! Gather all ingredients before starting and kids, be sure to have an adult supervise the baking. Here’s what you’ll need:

 

* 2 cups Wheat Flour
* 4 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
* 1/2 cup Wheat Germ
* 1/2 cup Cornmeal
* 1 gently beaten Egg
* 1/2 cup Chicken or Beef Broth
* 1 Tbsp. Chopped Parsley
* 1 cup cooked chopped Chicken Livers

 

Preheat oven to 400F. Combine flour, wheat germ and cornmeal. In separate bowl, beat egg with oil, add broth and parsley, mix well. Add dry ingredients to liquid a little at a time, stirring well after each addition. Fold in livers and mix well. Dough will be firm. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Roll out 1/2 ” thick and cut into shapes. If you want to, shape the dough with your hands–just be certain the biscuits are a uniform 1/2 ” thick Place on greased cookie sheets 1″ apart. Bake 15 minutes or so. Keep in refrigerator or freezer. If frozen, be sure to thaw biscuit before feeding to pooch.

 

Your doggie will feel like the best Valentine on the block!

 

For those without the time, recipes or baking ability to make dog biscuits from scratch, there are a number of excellent gourmet dog biscuits on the market, made by dog lovers for dog lovers. Many specialty grocery stores, as well as many pet stores, sell such special treats, so finding them should not be difficult.

 

And to keep those treats fresh, consider a treat tin!
