This is Milo our English Mastiff and Great Pyreneese mix puppy.  He is a love, a big (or going to be big) fur ball of mischief and fun.  Notice the chewed up paper on the floor, well that is just the half of it.   He'll make an excellent guard dog,  Pyrenees bark a little more than Mastiffs.  But don't be worried , Pyrenees are big teddy bears just  like the Mastiff

Henry working really hard!

Henry and I wanted to make Milo and Zeus some good healthy dog treats.  So they would have something to chew on, besides us!   Did you know puppies have little razor blades for teeth  ouch!!!   Try out this recipe on any dog, young and old.  They are so good we even eat them.

Healthy Dog Treats

2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup corn meal
1/2 cup white flour
1/4 cup sunflower or pumpkins seeds
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. veg oil
1/4 cup molasses or honey
2 eggs slightly beaten
1/4 cup milk

pre-heat oven to 350
In a stand mixer combine  all the dry ingredients.  Combine oil, molasses, eggs and milk, add to the dry ingredients.  Dough should be firm, but more milk may need to be added.  Roll out and cut into shapes.  We happen to have a bone cookie cutter , but I'm almost positive your canine friends won't care much about the shape.  Bake for 20 min. then turn off the oven and let sit in the oven for 1 hour.  If you roll them very thin correct the coking time.  Your dog will thank you for the recipe :)
