I should have known she was trouble from the beginning. She was brought into the University of Tennessee Veterinary Hospital as a stray with a badly broken leg and proceeded to jump off the gurney and run on three legs down the hallway.
The first time I saw her she was a mangy mess sitting in a cage with that broken leg. She scooted over to me, licked my hand and I was smitten. Little did I know that she would turn out to be the world’s worst dog! I don’t think she had even been in a house before, she was scared of the vacuum and just about everything else. She quickly learned that my bed was a much better place for sleeping, the trash can was full of snacks and those big brown eyes could get her out of trouble.
For 13 years, I have never known a better friend. She was my first baby, my family when I lived far away from home, a protector when my son was born and a shoulder to cry on when my ex moved on. She’s the dog that sheds all over my house, snatches food off the counter, knocks the pillows off my bed and keeps me up at night snoring but that’s just who she is and I love that about her. She gets around pretty good for a 91 year old girl and continues do whatever she wants…and I let her.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour

- Roll out dough to about 1/4" thickness and cut out cookies in desired shape.
- Place cookies on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes.
A batch of these peanut butter dog biscuits don’t last long. Sweet Pea sits in the kitchen until she thinks she’s eaten every last one.
