PAWS FOR EPILEPSY

Hi there peeps!

Check out this article ( http://www.kob.com/article/stories/S3200703.shtml?cat=500#.UmrU-p3nbct ) on my bud Shadow who was adopted from the shelter and is now a trained service pup for his epileptic person Dezmond.  Thru their new group “Paws for Epilepsy” (https://www.facebook.com/pawsforepilepsytailsforacause?hc_location=stream) they are spreading the word that service animals don’t need to be pure bred pups, but that shelter or rescue pups like Shadow are also up for the challenge.  Check them out and give them a ‘Like’!

Also, check out these PAWsome  Pumpkin Cookies Mom made for me to take and share with my buddies at Day Care yesterday.  Hope your furkids enjoy them just as much as we did!  They’re perfect for a HOWL-O-WEEN party!IMG_20131024_072224

HOWL-O-WEEN PUMPKIN COOKIES

Ingredients:

4 eggs;

1 C canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix);

4 Tbs powdered milk;

4 C brown rice flour;

1 C Flax Seed meal;

Unsweetened Carob Chips (for decoration);

How to:

Preheat oven to 350oF.  Combine dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. In separate bowl, mix together wet ingredients until thoroughly blended.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until forming a stiff dough.  Knead dough until all ingredients are thoroughly distributed.  Divide dough and roll out sections to approximately 1/4″ thickness, between pieces of parchment paper. Using Halloween themed cookie cutter, cut out shapes and place onto parchment lined cookie sheets.  IMG_20131023_212421
