Fun Day at K9 Karnival

We took Annie to the K 9 Karnival, this morning. We all had a great time. Annie had never seen so many dogs all in one place at one time or people. She had fun meeting new people and getting treats from various vendors.

One of the fun things they offered was to try out an agility course. Annie had never done anything like this before and she had a blast!! Of course, it helped to have treats at the end of each obstacle ;-) On the agility course, she went through a tube at the far right back and then jumped over several hurdles, jumped through a ring and also walked on a up a plank over and bridge and back down. For her very first time, ever, we thought she did really well.

Hubby took the photos so he didn't get her IN the act but me giving her treats after the fact.

What a fun afternoon for all three of us. We also walked around and checked out the vendors and bought a few 'treats' for Annie's stocking for Christmas.
These are actual dog biscuits with all natural ingredients.

I decided to get some for my Son's dog and my Sister's dog, also...as they will be here for Christmas.

It was the first event like this that this particular kennel club had put on and I thought they did a great job.

If you are a dog lover, here are just a few of the vendors we visited, today:

Healthy Paws

Oregon Pet Expo

Redmond Pet Care

Polkadoodledogbakery

Woofsandroofs

There were a lot more but sadly a lot of them didn't have websites.

Although I make my own doggie treats, I thought it would be fun to pick up those cute ones above for something a little different.

If you would like to try the treats that I make for my dog, here is the recipe. It makes a lot....

I love this recipe because it makes a lot & it's so easy, you just throw everything into the bowl, mix & pat onto 2 greased cookie sheets, no rolling or cookie cutters.

12 c. oatmeal

4 c. whole wheat flour

8 eggs

3/4 c. oil

2/3 c. honey

1/2 c. molasses

2 c. milk

Preheat oven to 325. Grease 2 cookie sheets

Dump everything into a VERY large bowl. Mix this whole mess together (I use my hands, AFTER I take my rings off, another story), pat onto greased cookie sheets & bake at 325 for 1 hour. After 1 hour turn oven off, crack oven door & allow cookies to cool in oven. Break into whatever size you want (mine like LARGE).

These freeze really well.

I have given these to even finicky dogs...and they loved them.


If you give them a try, let me know how your dog enjoyed them.


Hugs,

Char
