Although we haven’t yet hit triple digits, the weather is quickly heating up here. Tiki’s had her first (home) haircut of the summer and both dogs love swimming in the creek twice a day.
Right now autumn harvest seems far in the future but just yesterday I found a pumpkin plant blooming in the woods. It was a complete surprise because we hadn’t planted it; late last fall, we smashed an old pumpkin in the woods for the deer to enjoy. We must have chosen a good spot because the plant seems to be thriving:
Maybe we’ll have some pumpkins this fall!
You don’t have to wait until pumpkin season to enjoy this easy recipe for Pumpkin Doggie Ice Cream, though! You can make your own pumpkin puree or purchase canned pumpkin (don’t buy pie filling, though…it contains additional sugars and spices). I’m about to make Irie and Tiki a quick batch for a cool treat tomorrow afternoon!
Pumpkin Doggie Ice Cream Recipe
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
- ½ cup organic peanut butter
