Peanut Butter and Oatmeal Dog Biscuits

It's a special day around our house today!  We're celebrating a birthday!  Finally someone in our family has a summer birthday (Mike and I have winter birthdays).  Today, our baby puppy is 1 year old!  It's incredible how time has flown by since we rescued him.  We adopted Champ last September.  He weighed just 16 pounds.  Now, he's a year old and weighing in at 62 pounds.  He's a bundle of energy and we spoil him like crazy!

"Mommy, can I have a cookie?"
In honor of his birthday, I decided to make some special treats.  I wanted something pet-friendly, but also something that was special for him.  I turned to one of my favorite blogs, and I knew that if her fur baby enjoyed this treat, mine would too.  Champ loved this snack--I snuck him a little piece of the raw dough when I was making this yesterday and he gobbled it right up!  Champ loves peanut butter--I think he takes after his mommy :)
Can you see the biscuit in his mouth?  He carries large pieces of food around before eating them!
