Homemade Pumpkin Carrot Dog Treats - your pup deserves a treat! These are so simple, healthy, and your dog is going to love them!

I ever tell you guys about the first date I went on last year where I gave the poor guy a full pitch of the cookbook I want to write one day?

One glass of wine and I got real passionate about my maybe someday in the very distant future cookbook: Booze and B*tch Biscuits, a book all about cocktails and homemade dog treats.

Amazingly, we actually ended up going out a few more times after that.

ANYWAY.

I’m all in on pumpkin.

Oh! I haven’t had my first official PSL yet. Have you? I got one from McDonald’s a couple weeks ago because I like theirs so much more than Starbucks but I feel like I need to go to Starbucks just for an Instagram picture.

You know?

Ugh.

But yeah, Homemade Pumpkin Carrot Dog Treats!

Oh my gosh, y’all. The above photo? I had the treats I wasn’t using for photos propped up on the arm of the couch and I look over and Clementine was leaned up against the pillow, just staring at the treats just like my kids do when I’m photographing something they want to eat.

I don’t know how she knew they were hers but she did.

These are super simple – just canned pumpkin, shredded carrots, peanut butter, an egg, flour, and a tiny bit of cinnamon.

I have no idea how they taste but my dogs seem to like them. My six year old ate one and asked for another.

So yeah. I guess they’re not terrible.
