What about me???

Ben here, just want to wish everyone a Happy Halloween. I'm not into the whole dress up thing, Devil Horns are as far as I will go! Here on GrannyMountain, we're giving little Halloween bags with candy and some cool sunglasses. We live in the "boondocks" so the only Trick or Treaters we have are neighbor's kids, 5 to be exact! That's 5 ding-dongs, 5 barks and 5 "Oh, your so cute Ben!"

Since it's Halloween we deserve something good to eat too! Ask your Mommie to make you some of these homemade jerky treats. They are YUMMY and healthy too. I get three if I wear the Devil Horns tonight...

Jerky Treats
This is a great little treat that can be made quickly. I use a premium dog food and use my smallest ice cream scooper (about 1 tablespoon of dog food). Just flatten with a fork to 1/4" thick and bake...Ben loves these for a special treat or in his dish with his dry food. I use the oven method and they turn out like jerky!

Microwave - Open a can of wet dog food. It's best to use a kind that is not overly moist or chunky, more loaf like in texture. Cut the roll into 1/4" slices. Then cut those slices into bite sized pieces for your dog. Microwave them on a microwave safe plate for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes (keeping in mind that microwave wattage differs, so you may need more or less time). The texture should be chewy and crispy. Cool completely before serving to your dog. Store the treats in the refrigerator for one week.

Oven - You can use the above directions, but instead of microwaving, place the bite sized pieces on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° F for 30 minutes. Cool completely before serving to your dog. Store in the refrigerator for one week.
