Our dog, JoJo, loves it when I bake him treats. His favorite treat is chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips, of course.
When I bake everything is gluten & dairy free and processed sugar free. So it’s healthy for him. The other night I didn’t have any cookies for him. After dinner JoJo jumped up in the chair at the kitchen table and was waiting very patiently for his treat. He was so adorable. I quickly made him a batch of cookies. He was one happy pup.
