FROSTY PAWS DOG TREATS

My dog goes CRAZY for these treats. I made two flavors: peanut butter and pumpkin. From all the sources I checked, yogurt seems to be perfectly safe for dogs and and good for their digestive system but ask your vet first if you are concerned. I made small bite-sized star shaped treats out of silicone ice cube molds for a quick treat and I made larger treats by partially filling ramekins for when he needs a little busy time.

FROSTY PAWS DOG TREATS
3 cups (24 oz) plain all-natural Greek yogurt (perfect for when you are pushing the expiration date)
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter or 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
Glass ramekins, freezer safe containers or ice cube trays

Mix the ingredients together and fill ice cube molds...
 or glass ramekins. And freeze.
My dog is about 100 pounds and it takes him a good 15 minutes to lick this ramekin clean.
This is a perfect snack for dogs who are nervous and need a little busy time or for dogs who get distressed when you leave the house. I use this for my dog when people stop over and he is WAY too happy to greet them.
Good Boy... 
 

We took a road trip...
to my father's land...
The birds were in perfect spring chorus; robins chirping, geese honking, crows cawing and eagles screeching.
The eagles were also soaring...amazing!
These are two juvenile eagles, under the age of four, their tail and head feathers have not changed to white yet. They were gliding, swooping and chasing each other in a beautiful flight display. Eagles pick their partners for life.
This one is mature...
Complete serenity... 
Keep your eyes up to the sky, they are making a come back!
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal.
~George Gordon Byron
