Going to the Dogs

I recently started making brass dog tags. I've added texture to the edges by using chisels and center punches. I'll add the personal information (pooch name and telephone number) by hand stamping with my sets of steel alphabets and numbers.

I thought it would be nice to offer an accompanying handmade item and spent last night baking dog treats which I have named 'BOW WOW BISCUITS'. I made them with whole wheat flour, wheat germ, oats, corn meal, eggs and flavoring and cut them out with a dog bone shaped cookie cutter. The house smelled fabulous while these biscuits were baking!

We are a dogless household, so my one son and I were the taste testers. We are in agreement that 'BOW WOW BISCUITS' are pretty darn good. However, my son has warned me that he might tell people at school that I make him eat dog food. That little stinker!

  1. Love your dog tags. :)

    I made doggie biscuits a couple of years ago too! We have a Shih Tzu and he's picky and wouldn't eat them. However, our daughter's dog loves them!
