Fall Flashback Sunday - Pumpkin Crunchies!

Since Mama and Daddy are away in Lost Wages (hopefully NOT losing all our treat monies!!), Mama thought this would be a good time to post a couple of Favorite posts.....

This one was requested by Frankie...who is a BIG FAN of pumpkin crunchies!!! This post was written way back in 2010. It wasn't written in the Fall..but pumpkin is fall-ish, so Mama said it would be ok to post!

Dory's Top 5
6. Walkies

A few of you asked what pumpkin crunchies were so Mama said we could share the very complicated recipe!
Pumpkin-crunchies

Take your evening crunchies (aka kibble, we eat a mix of Iam's mini chunks and ummm..."low fat" chunks) and add a heaping cup, OK MAMA, a heaping tablespoon of pureed canned pumpkin. Stir well and.....

Pumpkin-crunchies-mixed

Voila! Pumpkin Crunchies! 

Mama first started this in order to make Bilbo more "regular" with his poopies. Then she found me "taste testing" Bilbo's pumpkin crunchies and said I could have them every OTHER night!!!

Pumpkin is GOOD for us AND tastes good too. Mom so wishes she could get Phantom to eat pumpkin in his dinner. The only way he eats pumpkin is in pumpkin treats, especially the ones we have now from Trader Joe's.

Congrats on your nice award too.
