Recipe for Tasty Dog Treats and much more Baggins' Bites Newsletter
August 09, 2006
Dear Fellow Dog Lover,

August ’06 Welcome to Baggins’ Bites the fr*e monthly ezine that features pet tips, occasional recipes and much more.

In this month’s issue:
I. Banana Freeze
II. Canine Cooler Beds
III. Help Fido Drop Pounds Without the Guilt

Remember how much you enjoyed frozen bananas as a kid? Well, now your pup can enjoy them too. See this bake-free frozen treat for your dog!

I. Banana freeze
Slice a banana into rounds
Dip the slices in melted carob
Lay in a single file on wax paper and place in the freezer for six hours or overnight.

When frozen, place the slices in an airtight container and treat on hot days. This will be a hit with your pet!

II. Wow, hasn’t this last heat wave left all of us panting for a breath of cooler weather?

I know Baggins and I are enjoying the lower humidity here in the Northeast. When it was over 100 degrees Fahrenheit last week, I took a look at these cooling beds from Only Natural Pet and wondered if Baggins would like one. They look great. Filled with water The Canine Cooler® Brand Thermoregulating Pet Bed conforms to your pet’s body and keeps him 25-35 degrees cooler. And with the average temperature of a dog hovering around 103, anything to cool them down would be great.

Check it out here and if you want to try one of these “water beds” for your dog or another product like their fozen raw diet mix,I’ve arranged for you to get 5% off your first order. You’re going to love their products! Save 5% on your first order at Only Natural Pet Store! Coupon code CJ15.

Does anyone have experience with one of these beds? I asked a couple of my dog friends and my friend Alison said her 7 year old lab loves his. And it helps to reduce the pain in arthritic joints too. I think I’ll order one for Baggins. I’ll let you know how he likes it.

III. Help Fido Lose Weight but Still Enjoy a Treat

Do you have a pet who needs to lose a little weight but you just can’t stop feeding the treats? See how one reader approached this dilemma by making a commitment to help her therapy dog slim down but still enjoy tasty snacks.
