Rose Mary's Story

This recipe is for my friend Bobbi Auttonberry here at Just A Pinch, it is a recipe that she can make for her dog. Now that I have converted her husband to like Fried Cabbage Mama's Way, and Mama's Buttermilk Cornbread, the dog doesn't get left over corn bread any more. So here is a recipe just for the dogs. My dog loves them and I hope yours will too. This recipe makes a lot, so you may want to cut it in half the first time you make them, just to make sure. I do not use my dog bone cookie cutter anymore, I just roll them out by hand. When I have a few minutes to spare I like making these.


4 c
all purpose flour
3 c
2 Tbsp
brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 c
vegetable oil
3 large
eggs, room temperature
1 c
2 pkg
beef gravy mix, or 1 beef bullion cube, crushed

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all ingredients together & shape into dog bones, or any shape you like. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet & Bake At 300 degrees F. for one hour. Makes about 48 bones.
This recipe is also in my cookbook, and I have made it quite a few times when ever I have the time.
Please note: If you have a small dog and make the bones smaller, you may be able to get 48 pieces. But my dog is larger, so I made the bones accordingly, and I got 28 pieces, and she loves them.

    I missed this one, Rose Mary...I found it when I was cleaning out my e-mail. I'm glad I noticed it. We've been talking about making our own treats for our spoiled pooch. We've been hearing that a lot of the store-bought treats are made in China and are causing permanent health problems in dogs. Our dog is part Lhasa-apso, part-poodle, but mostly Chow-Hound!!! These sound healthy, tasty, and less expensive than the ones we've been buying. We'll have to try some out on Mister Picky after Easter. He's a chow hound, but he only likes what he likes...and what he prefers for a treat is Munchy Bone Minis from Walmart. We won't compromise on his food--he has to eat the same high-quality food we've been buying (at the vet's recommendation) since he was a puppy, but we cave in on the treats. I'll report back on this!

    Thanks Jan, among the many things that I want to do this is one of them today, is to make this so I can post a pix. But my dog loves them, and I have been making them for quite a few years, I don't even remember where I got the recipe. Our dog is spoiled too, she will go to the cabinet door, and butt it with her nose when she wants a treat, and a big portion of my budget goes to her food and treats. Please keep me posted when you make them and post a pix if possible.

    Will Do! We keep Pepper's treats in a silver can on the counter, and he stands in the kitchen and stares at it and whines when he thinks he ought to have a treat! They're funny, aren't they?

    They really are funny & very smart. It is amazing the things that they can do. Our dog Diamond lays in the bay window, and when my husband turns the corner from getting off work, she gets down and greets him at the door. She knows the car.

    Pepper was our daughter's dog, though he lived with us. Before she died, he knew when she turned into the mobile home park, though I swear it's got to be half a mile or more away. But he would go to the door and start jumping up and down a good five or six minutes before she pulled up. It was uncanny!
