Pumpkin Blueberry Dog Treats

My bulldog, Hershey is a special kind of bulldog. I always say if he was a human he would be the nerdy, needy kid with glasses that would have to live in a plastic bubble. He has to eat a special dog food that has better ingredients than most of my dinners! He is allergic to something new every week, including wet grass which is so much fun to deal with! It sometimes seems like it would be easier to keep him in a plastic bubble at all times šŸ™‚ If he isn’t crazy hyper he is very needy but he’s super cute while doing it so I don’t mind. šŸ™‚ All he is missing is a thick pair of glasses with duct tape holding them together.

Since Hershey is allergic to almost everything, I made him these hypoallergenic pup treats. It’s his birthday tomorrow so these are extra special!! If you have a furry friend that you want to spoil, these are the perfect treat!

Ingredients:

(Makes about 8 pup treats)

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
  • 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 Tbsp blueberries
