Homemade Dog Treats Your Dog Will Love

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’re a healthy cost-effective alternative to the pricey dog treats we could buy.  Better yet I know exactly what the ingredients are in these homemade dog bones.
