I did it! I finally did it. I made homemade treats for Shio-san and he loves them! How do I know he loves them? He does his little play dance with the treat in front of him when we give one to him! It was a recipe that I threw together myself with random items in our kitchen, so we knew it would either be really good or really bad. I call it the OatPeaNanananaaaa Treats. The great thing about creating your own recipe is that you can dream up any obscure name that you want for the finished product! :)
