Easy frosty paws

How about something cold to eat?

Pick snap peas

Blanch 3--45 sec. and cool in ice water

Visualize whirled peas


Add plain yogurt, maybe 1 cup.

You can also add an egg

Blend in egg

I poured some into coop cups, which are also used as water bowls in small crates.  Some people pour the contents into paper cups but I used these because the dogs can lick out the contents rather than crunch up the whole thing in ten seconds. A few blueberries add decoration.

And I poured some into Kongs and put them all in the freezer.

 Indoor dining kept Miro busy for all of ten minutes.
Outdoor dining
The two had to eat in separate quarters; otherwise Miro would take Alanis' treat afte finishing his.


  1. What a great idea! It looks like Miro and Alanis agree, too. :)

  2. You are brilliant! What a fantastic and healthy idea to keep our 'hot dogs' happy! xo

  3. What a great idea! I would love somethin' like that, and peas are one of the only veggies I like! I'll give Ma one of my 'looks' and plead her to get her lazy hinnie into the kitchen!!



  4. Truly a "cool" idea! I'll have to look into making some for Indy.

  5. Ruby, tell your mom she can use pureed baby food peas. No blender to wash!

  6. What a delicious and refreshing treat!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  7. That is so clever! I am going to try this for Savannah. She loves ice cream, but sometimes barfs after eating it too fast. This would be a much healthier alternative.

    Love the pics of your Dales!

  8. Ohh, that looks tasty! Thanks for sharing! We're a big fan of the frozen treats over here. ;)

  9. I'm not very handy in the kitchen but this recipe looks like something I could handle! Very clever idea! Low cost and simple! Thanks for sharing!
