a recipe for rabies

I dunno what happened last night, but my guess is that there might be an outbreak of rabies in the area. I can’t figure out any other reason why my master would be so disturbed. So, I am going to lay low and avoid the virus! I think it’s coming through the Internet…

What do you like to do when you need a “getaway” day? I like to bake. There’s nothing like a home-made biscuit! It’s my comfort food, and it’s my way of taking a breather when things get testy or when I have a fear of the unknown. It gets my mind off things! It always helps to destress by doing something for your own enjoyment.

I’d like to share with you my biscuit recipe. Trust me, it’s da bomb-diggity-est bomb-diggity dog biscuits that ANY dog will dig– regardless of how many legs they have!!!

Here ’tis:

Ada’s Bomb-diggity Dog Biscuits

2 1/2 to 3 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup dry milk
2 tablespoons wheat germ
1 teaspoon beef or chicken bouillon or soup base
1 teaspoon sugar
1/3 cup beef fat, bacon drippings, or other tasty meat fat
1 whole egg w/ shell (blend it in a food processor until shell is completely pulverized)
1/2 cup water (use bottled water to avoid methane and frack fluid)
Mix together flour, dry milk,wheat germ, bouillon, and sugar. Cut in fat until mix is crumbly.
Stir in the pulverized egg (the egg shell adds calcium, ya know?)
Add just enough bottled water so the whole thing forms a ball (kinda like pie crust).
Roll dough out on an oiled baking sheet to 1/2 inch thickness.
Cut into fun shapes like bones or bunny rabits.
Pack the scraps together, roll again, and cut out more shapes.
Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 25-30 minutes.
Cool on wire racks or let dry in oven over night. This makes them crunchy!
Store in an air-tight tin.
Eat at will!
Here’s a doggy secret for all you humans: Us dogs really don’t care how big the treat is. We care about quantity and frequency, not size.  So, to make things last longer, you can use quite small shapes. Just remember that the smaller the shape, the less time you need to leave them in the oven.
