Charlie goes crazy every time I make these cookies for her.
I make a bunch and store them in a jar on the counter.
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup peanut butter (all-natural or organic)
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups white flour
3 tablespoons unsalted peanuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Combine oil, peanut butter and water.
Add flour, and work the dough together.
Let it rest for 30 minutes.
Knead dough into firm ball and roll to 1/4 inch thickness.
Use a bone cookie cutter to make small bones.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Sprinke with peanuts.
Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack.
Makes 25 cookies.
Established in 2002, the inspiration for Bella Bean Couture is the owner's boxer, Bella Bean. Ever since Bella was a tiny pup, she could be found at the local dog park in the latest accessories. It soon became apparent to all those around this fashion diva that she deserved her own label. This whimsical line of dog accessories is all manufactured in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This simple recipe will give your dog a beautiful, healthy coat and is much cheaper than commercial products.
And your dog will NOT smell of vinegar.
1 pint Ivory or Dove liquid dishwashing soap
1 pint water
1 pint apple cider vinegar
4 ounces glycerine (available at your local pharmacy)
Mix all of the ingredients together.
When washing your dog keep the water out of his eyes and ears.
If you need to wash around these areas use a damp cloth.
Start from the back of the dog and work your way to the front.
This is the most important step.
Leftover shampoo can create iirritation in the skin.
So rinse well and make sure all shampoo or conditioner is rinsed away.
Use a big towel and dry the dog.
Then take out a brush and go to work.
You can also use a blow-dryer, just be careful because dog hair is flammable.
If your dog have mats, knotted hair that will not comb out, you may have to use scissors to cut them off.
Enjoy your clean dog
