The Paw House Inn

It's apparently a day for the dogs. FI and I were lucky enough to stumble on the most incredible place ever. The Paw House Inn!!! They have two locations, both in VT, and it is the best place to go if you are a dog owner and want to vacation with your dog. Both Casey and Foley loved it and it solved a huge dilema for us! The staff are great, we were treated well, the place was clean and they even had biscuits for the dogs.

They operate on "No Dog Left Behind" as their motto. And it's true. The dogs are allowed to stay in the room with you, and allowed to be in the Inn, just not the dining room. When you leave and can't bring your dog with you, they allow you to bring your dog to their onsite kennel to stay while you are out, where they can even watch TV!

Homemade Dog Biscuits!

I've been working on a baking project that I'll post separately, but I thought the dogs felt left out. I searched for a really easy recipe that I would have the ingredients in the house and here is what I found:

Homemade Dog Treat Recipe Peanut Butter Puppy Poppers

2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 cup peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
1 cup milk

Preheat oven to 375'F. In a bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another bowl, mix peanut butter and milk, then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Place dough on a lightly floured surface and knead. Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Bake for 20 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly brown. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container. --- This is the original recipe, but I have found the cookies burn easily

I did them in drop form, and only had to cook them for maybe 15 minutes if that. Our dogs LOVED them. I also cut the recipe in half as that was all the WW flour I had and it was the perfect amount!
