My lab loves carrots...Nisha simply chews them and spits them out....she chews them...just doesn't swallow them....she's picky, though....
Also, a great recipe for biscuits:
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup molasses
1 cup water (although I ended up using more b/c the dough was just too dry...other people have said the same thing...use your judgment)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 tablespoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly. (Like I mentioned above, I did add a little liquid as I kneaded the dough. See what you think.)
Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut into bone shapes (or whatever you have - the dog won't care!).
Place cookies on ungreased, foil-lined baking sheets and bake in a pre-heated 325 degree oven for 30 - 35 minutes. Makes 5 - 6 dozen.
You can put a lot on the cookie sheet, because they don't get bigger as they bake. When you are all done, just pile them onto one of the sheets - or a lasagne pan, or whatever - and put them back into the oven. Turn the oven off and just leave them there as the oven cools. This helps make them nice and hard. You can just leave them there overnight. My dogs want to lay in front of the oven all night.
