We had about five inches of snow yesterday, which for Salem is a pretty heavy snowfall. Montana's favorite thing, other than food, is snow. He goes out and runs around in it like a maniac. It is so much fun to see him enjoying life like that!

I baked something two days ago that was very easy, in fact I baked another batch today.

Whole Wheat Parsley Cookies

  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil

  • 1 1/2 to 1 2/3 cups water

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal (uncooked)

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

Mix oil and water, slowly add flour and other ingredients. Work in a little more flour, flour hands and knead dough. Pull off small pieces, roll into shapes or press flat in palms. Bake 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

The fresh flavor of parsley helps to freshen your dog's breath.

You can also add 2 Tbsp dried mint to the mix.


  1. Thanks for the parsley tip. I cook for my dogs as well. We have always done it and I believe our dogs to be amongst the healthiest you can meet. I will be making cookies for them later and will include a breath freshener.
    Montana is a wonder- my Jack Russells would love to be helpful but beyond keeping the pigeons off the balcony and patrolling for mice they lack key skills.
    They do provide a great bit of care for Herrad- without their clowning and cuddles on the bed life would be a lot more dull.
    Good luck with talks. It looked a bit scary to me!

  2. Hi

    Saw your comment on Richies blog and came over to read your blog and saw the beautiful dog I saw on Lisa's blog.

    Will come by from time to time.
