The way to a Dog's heart is thru Food ! So instead of buying a gift, why not make your Dog some homemade Treats.  Here are some recipes, and more can be found at   http://www.bullwrinkle.com/Assets/Recipes/Recipes.htm

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

½ cups water(add more water later if required)
½ cup oil
2 eggs
3 tablespoons peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
½ cup cornmeal
½ cup oats

Blend wet ingredients together. Whisk dry ingredients together and mix into wet mixture to form a ball of dough. Roll out and shape. Put onto a non-stick cookie tray or lightly greased one. Cook 20 minutes at 400 F. Turn off oven and allow the biscuits to cool in oven until crisp and hard. Store in airtight container.

Chicken liver cookies

2 cups Flour
3 tbs. Vegetable oil
1 cup wheat germ or cormeal if wheat allergies are a problem
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tsp. parsley
1 cup cooked chicken liver, chopped

Combine flour and wheat germ. In separate bowl, beat egg with oil, then add broth & parsley, mix well. Add the dry ingredients to bowl a little at a time, stirring well. Fold in chicken livers and mix well. Dough will be firm. Turn dough out on lightly floured surface and knead briefly. Roll out 1/2" thick and cut into shapes. Place on greased cookie sheet 1" apart. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until firm. Store in refrigerator.

In our old apartment complex we had a guy that made liver brownies (no coco) it smelled so bad but the pups loved them. And at our farmers market we have a girl that makes and sells theme dog goes nuts lol. I'm going to have to try to make these for him :)
