Halloween Time

So, since its Halloween time, I thought I tell you about my favorite pumpkin cookies.  Mom and Grandma make these for me and I love them!  In addition to just being delicious, they’re great for any dog on a vegetarian diet or for overweight dogs who are trying to lose weight – as long as you don’t eat too many!

Mom makes these in different sizes because she likes to use all the pumpkin cookie cutters she has.  But just between you and me, if she only used the BIG one, that would be fine with me!
