As much as we love our four-legged farm animals, we love and pamper our household pets even more.  Our Libby-girl loves her homemade dog treats, and they are a healthy cost-effective alternative to the pricey dog treats we could buy.  And even better yet is I know exactly what the ingredients are in these treats.
