Visiting friends, I’m reminded how much thought & attention some people give to caring for their canine companions, our furbabies who are completely reliant on us through no choice of their own. I love how much love people give to the animals in their lives. Our lovely friend Pauline has a pack of huskies and has also started baking treats for hounds as Hudson’s Garden. This is a great idea! When we went to visit she taught me how to make some. The key ingredient in this recipe is a helping of dried cleavers which is good for fluid retention, flushing metabolic waste from the lymphatic system & helps detoxify the blood. There’s also natural peanut butter which is a good source of protein (as long as it has no added sweeteners or salt). These biscuits are also vegan (our dogs aren’t vegan – they have a fish-based diet). More pet owners are becoming aware of the awful, low-grade content of some dog foods these days, so I think home baked doggy treats like these could be the way forward. Out hounds scoffed them up so they’re clearly delicious 🐕. There’s a full photo diary of this by @andyrgarside going up on the OUTSIDER blog on 28th July for Patreons.
