Holy Hot! As my Boston Terrier, Lani, was panting while trying to cool down after our walk, I gave her fresh water with ice cubes. As she was drinking from the bowl and playing with her ice cubes, I decided to look for some recipes that could make this a fun and tasty way to cool down.

I came across these great recipes on the Vegan Rottweiler forum website and would like to share with you:

1. ICY PAWS

INGREDIENTS:

2 cartons plain or vanilla yogurt (32 oz. each)

1 small can tuna in water (8oz.)

2 tsp. garlic power

24, 3 oz. plastic cups (not paper)

HOW TO MAKE:

Open yogurt, if they are full to the top use a spoon & scoop out one cup (these will be frozen as plain yogurt). Put half of the can of tuna in each yogurt container add the garlic power (1 tsp. in each) & stir thoroughly.

Use a spoon & scoop the mixture into the cups. Place on a tray & freeze overnight.

Makes about 24 treats.
