My name's Baxter, and I'm an Irish Terrier. I work at gr as the work/life balance supervisor. It's a full-time job. Although I seem to also be responsible for any sticks that make their way inside the office too.
Some very nice readers of gr sent my mum in some dog biscuit recipes and I've shared them below for your four-legged friends too. A reader also sent a dog biscuit cookie cutter which makes the bikkies a VERY tempting shape.
Baxter, superdog and stick collector
Here is a recipe for yummy biscuits your Mum can make.
4 x eggs
1TBS. olive oil
1 cup low fat grated cheese
can also have grated raw carrot cereals, oats, apple, veg.
left over meat cut small cubes
sliced BROWN bread. cut into fingers
Put all together in bowl except bread, then coat bread with mixture, preheat oven to 160o place fingers on baking tray & bake 15 minutes. Then turn oven down to 130c & bake slowly for 1 hour. until crisped up.
Baxter will love these. Good luck. Love the mag, I got our local libary years ago, to have a subscription on it as I am so keen to read it.
What a handsome dog you are. I hope a lot of biscuits come your way. Here is a recipe from the Nyasaland Cookery Book and Household Guide c1950.
1lb peanuts chopped fine
4 lbs maize meal
1 lb liver, or raw meat, minced
Mix all ingredients with sufficient cold water to form a biscuit dough. Roll out to a thickness of half an inch and cut into biscuits. Bake in a moderate oven until well cooked.
When we were living in Nyasaland (now Malawi) a friend took some dog biscuits to the Agricultural Department and asked for them to be analysed. The technician's reply began 'This is the most extraordinary soil that I have ever tested ...'
You looked so cute, sitting in your mummy's filing shelves. You are certainly going to be a well read dog and have lots and lots of knowledge. I have a recipe for some delicious biscuits hope you enjoy!
Mix together 500 gms wholemeal flour and 200 gms of minced meat, 1 dessertspoon salt.
Add enough cold water to mix to a stiff dough. Roll out and place on an oven slide. Mark into squares and prick with a fork. Bake in a slow oven until brown. Because you are still very young and growing you could add 1 tablespoon of Cod Live Oil to the mixture before baking - as it is good for building bones.
PS I look forward to more of your adventures!
