Happy National Dog Biscuit Day!
I know many of you prefer to make treats for your dogs and boy oh boy do we have a good one for you!
My mom makes these for my dogs and they go absolutely bonkers. The best part ... they don't upset Faith's IBD, so we know they are good for dogs with sensitive stomachs and GI issues.
If you make these treats, post your photos to our FB page with the hashtag #poochetatreats #dogsdigitwi
