Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day?
It's International Treat Loving Day!

Rainbow Bridge Dog Houses
A Special Tribute to Xena

Who knew? A special day for dog treat appreciation? I had to laugh in spite of myself, the dog treat baking, recipe-seeking maniac that I have lately become. Maybe it's because I'm an empty nester now. No kids to bake for, so I'm coming up with Fido yummies instead. 

Today's picture is in honor of our fallen pack mate, Xena. We lost her to a stroke in October, but she continues to live in our hearts, memories, and at our Rainbow Bridge Memorial. I still return to her eulogy here on the blog to remember those feelings she brought out so strongly in me.

Dear Xena: The dog houses are for you at the Rainbow Bridge, sweet girl. We know you will share with your new friends. We hope you are enjoying the company that we have tried to bring you with the many friends in our Rainbow Bridge Memorial. We'll keep inviting our readers to submit their lost furry friends' photos to be with you. Love, Mom

Would you like to make the treats I've displayed in this photo? They're easy to prepare and very healthy for your fido. More importantly, Tanner and Oliver completely approve. Check out their comments at 5 Minutes for Fido. You'll find the recipe here at Paris Permenter's guest post. Happy tails!

How beautiful. Thank you for sharing the recipe as well! I have to ask -- do you share the banana bread recipe you had going today?

What a sweet tribute to Xena. I can just see our Maggie having lots of fun with all her new Rainbow Bridge friends. I sure hope someone is throwing a ball for her!!
