I have two beautiful fur babies. Louie and Henri, my long haired dachshunds, are my little loves. Dogs give us a special kind of unconditional love that is hard to come by these days.
When I first adopted Louie six years ago, I couldn’t have imagined how perfect he was for me. I honestly believe he is as close to a soulmate as possible. He just gets me. And I totally get him.
Henri is a new addition (my Christmas present from my daughter), and being still a puppy, we are all adjusting to the energy. He is extremely adorable and full of personality.
Dachshunds are usually adventurous foodies but somehow I have managed to adopt two of the pickiest eaters of the canine world. So finding dog food and treats they will both eat is a challenge. I think with most pet foods the key is keeping it simple. It is less likely to activate a food sensitivity and definitely better for their overall health and weight management.
In a nod to National Love Your Pet Day, I’m sharing a simple canine cookie with you. Louie loves these and he’s the pickier eater of the two so that says a lot about it. I hope you give these a try if you have a little fur baby that enjoys special treats!
