Lolly the Hungry Dog

Hungry Girl Lisa recently welcomed a new addition to her family -- Lolly, the Hungry Dog! And since today is Hug Your Dog Day, we've got a couple of recipes for your canine companions. Lolly sure loved 'em!

Need-to-Know Info...

* These paw-faits are veterinarian approved. Thanks, Dr. Marty Becker and Dr. Justin Shmalberg!

* Each of these paw-faits is suitable as a daily snack for dogs 50 lbs. or larger. If your pup is 20 - 50 lbs., halve the recipe. If under 20 lbs., halve the recipe and only serve half of that amount to your dog (save the rest for another day).

* If your pet has known food allergies, is overweight, or has been on a special diet, talk to your veterinarian before feeding Fido these snacks.
