Just down the road in Alabaster, AL there is an outstanding dog park, the Beneful Dream Dog Park! A resident and her dog had the winning entry in the 2011 Beneful competition and won a half-million dollar renovation for the dog park at Verteran’s Park. Definitely one of Sunny’s all time favorite places and the nicest dog park we’ve ever been to. It comes equipped with a splash pad, obstacles, picnic tables, large and small dog areas, and tons of toys to play with.
Lots of fun was had by all. Kodah even brought his lady a present (a new toy and a bag of fantastic dental chewies called Checkups). I also brought homemade peanut butter dog treats for all the pups and they were a huge hit and so easy to make! We also had cupcakes and cookies for all the non-furry guests.
Peanut Butter Dog Treats Recipe:
- 2 cups whole-wheat flour
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
- 1 cup low-fat milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk. Add wet mixture to dry, and mix well.
Turn out dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll out to 1/4-inch thickness and cut out shapes. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake 20 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight container.
