I am not a dog person. I don’t know if I missed out on the dog-loving gene or what. I don’t like little ones because they are yappy and annoying. I don’t like big ones because they are scary and intimidating. There’s no middle ground here for me! Haha!
Zack loves dogs. His parents have a chocolate lab and my aunt and uncle have a cocker spaniel. I’m the type of crazy person that gives pets Christmas gifts.
I found a recipe for some dog biscuits and thought that would be perfect for a little gift.
My aunt and uncle’s dog is named Gordy and Zack’s parents dog is named River, so I made some R and G shaped cookies!
Gordy got his cookies last weekend and I was told that he loves them! River gets his on Christmas. I hope he likes his too.
Pets need Christmas love, too!
