So I decided to make some homemade doggy treats today. Why? Why not! I have been putzing around in the kitchen all week, so I figured it was time to experiment into the realm of homemade dog treats.
Tell me you wouldn't do just about anything for this face? I know. So we went to the dog park this morning and then went to the grocery store to grab some groceries and then came home. I did a quick workout (which I will fill you in on later) which I rarely do. I love going to the gym and taking that time for myself. Anyways, I thought it would be fun to try out some homemade doggy treats. Grando rarely eats "human" food, but doesn't appear to be very fussy. So I spent about an hour online looking up doggy treat recipes and finally settled on one from Rachel Ray's website called "Bacon Truffles" made with real bacon. I bought all the ingredients and spent about an hour cooking bacon, mixing ingredients and baking the treats.
When I took them out of the oven I was super pumped for Grando to try one. I even took one and blew on it to cool it down faster. I was fairly confidant that I was about to rock his world with some bacon-y goodness.
Bad news. He hated them.
Like full on hated them. He took one in his mouth and immediately hid it, hoping I would forget about it. So I gave him another one. No dice. He wouldn't even put the second one in his mouth. Burn. I was honestly pretty mad at him for like 5 minutes. Then I remembered that he has no idea I just spent an hour making them and it's not his fault my treats sucked. However, it should be noted here that Grando has been known on occasion to eat poo. Yet wouldn't eat my Bacon Truffles. Like he wouldn't even eat one just to make me feel like my efforts weren't totally wasted. However, dogs typically do not have the social graces to protect people's feelings. Sigh. I now have the problem of what to do with 75 Bacon Truffles. Any ideas? I felt like Elaine in the episode of Seinfeld when she needs to get rid of all of those unwanted muffin tops. Also, I may have eaten one to see if they were really that bad. Don't worry they only had bacon, flour, cornmeal, egg, parsley and beef broth. They did suck. Bummer.
