In early June 2007 we adopted an adorable puppy from a rescue organization in Ohio. We found the little guy on Petfinder.com
and drove about 100 mile each way. I have to say, we had seen pictures

were getting a treat. Nope! (Oh alright - I did bake peanut butter
cookies for them.) Click the pictures for the recipe links for the
treats above. Max is a little picky - he'd rather starve than eat a
Milk Bone. I found this out after I bought the GIANT box from Sam's
Club. Live and learn.
