So, we made 2 kinds of treats. Cheesy dog cookies, and Peanut butter dog biscuits. I never realized how easy it is to make homemade dog treats! By the way, the cheesy ones were the favorite. I could tell the dogs would go for those ones first, but they all were gobbled up.
Alex loved this! He was pretty generous with those treats too! As soon as he gave one to a dog, he was ready for another one.
It was so fun to walk through and see all the dogs. I wish (so did the kids) that we could have taken one home with us. I just don't know if we're quite ready for a dog again.
I'm not really sure why the chihuahua's were in these types of kennels. We couldn't give them any treats.
This dog that April is feeding was my favorite. Her name is Sandie. It was fun to get to know all their names.
A close up of Sandie. She was happily munching on her treat.
Alex getting in on the action. He wasn't scared of the dogs at all, I had to watch him close. We didn't have any problems though.
All gone! We gave every last treat away. Here the kids are standing in front of April's favorite dog "Ben."
Oh, and we visited the kitties too. Actually we picked one to play with for a while, her name was Roxy. It definitely wasn't this one, miss "I'm stressed" kitty. Yeah, you can see that paw out ready to strike at any unsuspecting passer-by. This cracked me up!This was such a cool field trip, and service. If we lived closer April could go and volunteer regularly when she turns 12. I think she would like to do that, she loves animals. We will definitely be making more treats for the animal shelter again next year!
