My youngest brother recently bought three pigs, and the other day he was telling me that he wished that he had treats to give them when he goes in the pen. It is much easier to handle them if they want to come to you, and a happy pig is a good thing.
So yesterday I made him some cookie type biscuits for his pigs. He had been joking when he suggested that I make him some, so he was pretty surprised that I actually did. Am I a good sister or what?
These treats are also great for dogs. I know Raider didn’t mind being a guinea pig. I chose this recipe because we had some bananas that were just weird. They never really ripened and were not edible at all. But since pigs don’t really care if their bananas are ripe or not, it was a perfect way to not waste them. I was going to make them into fun shapes, but then I just went with a 2″ cookie cutter.

If your dog is allergic to wheat, I’m pretty sure other types of flour could be used.
