Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats

This week on our blog post Tuesday Cook Off we are focusing on our dogs.   Since it’s fall season and our house loves pumpkin anything, my youngest decided it would be nice if our two dogs could have pumpkin dog treats.  Now, if I was just looking for our black pug I would have probably gone to the store and picked out some pumpkin dog treats at Petsmart or Pet Club.  Pugs have stomachs of steel.  At least the pugs I have owned do 🙂  But since we have a pit bull also who are known to have very sensitive skin, I had to do some looking around and decided homemade was the best way for our pit bull.    Our pit bull is on a grain free diet and it’s very hard to find treats that don’t make him itch.   Did I forget to mention he is also he is a white pit bull which makes him even more sensitive to…everything!!  But I still love him to pieces!

Recipe from My Baking Addiction

Yields: about 24 treats


1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
2 eggs
1/2 cup oats (optional if your dog is on a grain free diet)
3 cups whole wheat, brown rice, or gluten free flour
3 Tbsp of all natural peanut butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In small bowl, stir together the flour, oats, and cinnamon
In a separate large bowl, whisk together the eggs, pumpkin and peanut butter until combined. Stir wet ingredients into dry.
Pour onto a floured surface and roll dough out to 1/2 thick. Cut out using cookie cutter. The dough will be a little sticky, a dusting of flour for your hands and the rolling pin will help! Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until golden brown.
Place on cooling racks and let cool thoroughly. They will harden as they cool.

For the Love of my Pit Bull


In June of 2012 we lost our beloved pug, Hobbes.   He was 15 years old and lived a great life.  Being a dog family and having two boys who begged and begged for a new dog, my husband and I decided we would rescue a dog.   We did our research and have a friend who volunteers for a local dog rescue.   On a Friday night in September of 2012 we ended up adopting our 10-week-old pit bull mix.   His name is Chance and he is the sweetest dog in the world.

The idea of this post came about when I was talking to a neighbor the other day and they were unsure of the pit bull breed.  They said they were happy Chance was pit bull/lab mix.   And said they felt safer knowing he was only half pit bull.   This is when I realized that most people are uneducated about pit bulls and I wanted to fix this problem.

Pits bulls are a working dog and are great at agility, search-and-rescue, tracking, weight pulling, carting, Shutzhund, hunting, obedience, therapy, and more.  They are a very trainable dog and are eager to please their owner.   In fact, LawDogs USA, for example, opted to use pit bulls exclusively as drug detection dogs because they are so trainable.   Now does that sound like a terrible breed?

I don’t want to go on and on about myths and pit bulls.   Plus, I know pit bulls get a lot of bad press.   But it’s not bad dogs it’s BAD OWNERS!  I guess I just want everyone to keep an open mind about any animal and just make sure you do your homework before you buy or rescue a dog.
