April 11, 2022, is National Pet Day!
(Not to be confused with National LOVE YOUR PET day on February 20th. I guess pets are loved so much they need two days!)

There are some sales to go along with today to help you save on what your pet needs.

BUT the best way to shop Chewy is Autoship orders because you get extra savings AND FREE SHIPPING. I find Chewy’s autoship service to be much more flexible and customizable than Amazon’s Subscribe & Save service.

Does your household love a pup or two (or three)? Dog lovers want the best for their furry companions, and that’s really easy to do when you make your own dog treats. So many treats on the market have questionable ingredients and/or product recalls, making treat time scary. Making your own treats is extremely easy to do, and your dog will thank you
A recipe for Peanut Butter Bones from Carrington Farms is below, using all natural and yummy dog-friendly ingredients.
Peanut Butter Bones
1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon of Carrington Farm’s Virgin Coconut Oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together peanut butter, honey, oil and chicken broth. In a separate bowl, combine flours and oatmeal. Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients.
Place dough on flour dusted surface. Roll or press dough out to about 1/4″ inch thick. Use a small bone cookie cutter to cut out cookies. The size is up to you, depending on the size of your dog. Roll out leftover scraps and cut out as many as possible.
Put cut out cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 14-16 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.
Store at room temp in an airtight container for about a week, or longer if you store in the refrigerator.
