Rehearsal Dinner Invites And Doggy Biscuits

My Son and grand dog Dora were visiting from DC last week so, it was a perfect time to make dog biscuits for my son's wedding rehearsal dinner since I had a dog taster right on premises

Let me explain...My Son is getting married Thanksgiving weekend, and I'm hosting the rehearsal dinner at an outside cafe close to my home in downtown Orlando

My Son loves his dog Dora and since it's an outside cafe, puppies are allowed, so I'm having a 
PUPPY BAR for our doggy guests

I did a post HERE on the doggy bags I made as party favors 

I wasn't sure what treats I was going to put in the bags, then the sweet folks at

Read my post and sent me dog cookie cutters ....

.....And cellophane bags....How nice was that!!!

They Also gave me the link to CopyKat Recipes who posted this super simple recipe to make dog biscuits.  Now, girlfriends, I feel a lot more comfortable holding a paint brush than a spatula, so if I say this is easy.....It is!

Here's the ingredients

My grand dog, LOVED them!

 I will definitely make these again.  

My brother told me he has a  co-worker that makes up cellophane bags of dog treats every year as Christmas gifts for co-workers with dogs....What a great idea!

Speaking of Christmas gifts Cloud K9, not only has cookie cutters of all makes and models of dogs, they have tons of doggie, gifts and clothes too!

Before I leave you, I want to give you an idea for what you can do with  any left over dough.........You could free form! 

Oh no, my Mom reads my blog and she doesn't like potty (Or in this case poopy) humor.........Sorry Mom, I couldn't help myself!

Happy Creating!


Thank you Cloud K9

Oh my gosh......you forgot one shape. Bryn and Dolly love the biscuits I make (same recipe) especially the cat shaped ones cause it's the only time they get the upper bite on Miss Maui. She does rule the household.
What adorable bags you have and how nice of the people at Cloud K9 to send you the gift. Really enjoying your wedding preparations.....have fun!

Forget the dogs!! This recipe has peanut butter in it, I'll eat them!!! I love the idea of doggy bags and yes, to the comment above, cat cookies sound too funny....a great idea!!!

Marydon said...

This is the CUTEST EVER!!! What a darling idea.

Have a great weekend ~

What a wonderful idea, and all the work you're doing to make all the puppy guests feel welcome. I've toyed with the idea of making dog treats, but haven't do it yet. My d-i-l did make some a few years ago. Their beagle mix who's appetite knows no bounds.. sat in front of the oven while they were in there waiting for them to come out. I don't think she moved the whole time.. ha!!!

Createology said...

I am actually ROFLOL (rolling on the floor laughing out loud)! You are too funny and I appreciate your "poopy" humor. This rehearsal dinner is going to be fantastic. I hope you have magazine editors covering this event...both human and canine. Super Fun Dear...

Debbie said...

Behold the power of your blog! What a wonderful thing to get and a perfect idea to boot. I can't wait for this whole shebang to come together. It's all going to be wonderful!

And I admit it.
I'm laughing at the poopy humor.
Don't tell your mom, OK?


LOL...NO Free Form....it does look like poop!!
You are the best "Grandma"!!! How extra nice that CLoud K9 sent you cookie cutters and bags. I guess we just don't know "who" reads our blogs!
They are sweet and looks very easy and healthy for the doggies.

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

well everyone is going to have a great time ! you are just making it all super special with all your creative and fun touches but ummmm...you won't have the uh freeform ones at the dinner will you?

Diane said...

Laughing so hard at you....you are a real hoot. I almost wee'd myself. tee hee

Dawn's Craft Place said...

What a great rehearsal dinner this is going to be! I so love the idea of guests bringing their dogs.
I have seen that recipe and my fur grand dogs love it...I also sent my daughter and daughter in law cookie cutters to make more of it.
Thanks for sharing sweetie

Roxanne Reinhart said...

You crack me up Carol!! I've loved everything you've done for this wedding event. She is a lucky bride!

Shabby chic Sandy said...

The fact that dogs can come just makes it all the more fun. How cute!

Cindy@OldTimePickers said...

You have way too much fun! The p**p ones made me laugh out loud. I make treats for my dogs, but don't have the patience to do cut outs, just bake in a pan. Anyhoo, your ideas are so cute.

Angela said...

What a great idea! I'm sure your rehearsal dinner is going to be fantastic.
I'll have to make some of those biscuits for my dog, he is so fickle about his food, I hope he'll like this recipe.
Thank you for sharing.
I hope you have a great weekend.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Can you hear me laughing? I love your potty humor! What a clever idea for the doggy bags and those treats look good enough for human consumption...well the dog shaped ones anyway. Love the casual dining idea for the rehearsal dinner!

Ric Rac and Polka Dots said...

You made me laugh right out loud! You are too funny. I love the doggie treats, and that was really nice of that company to send all that to you. I think you did a great job making them and I bet you can cook and bake better than you are letting on. I do feel more comfortable with a paintbrush than a spatula too, but it is probably because I would rather paint than cook!!!
Thanks for visiting and leaving the nice comment. Any and all encouragement is gladly welcomed, because I feel like maybe I shouldn't have tried to make three. I'll do it but yikes, lots of little squares this week! When I make my own patterns I keep it quick and simple, not too many little pieces! I have too many things I want to make so I can't spend crazy amounts of time on everything. Thanks again for the positive thoughts!

Ric Rac and Polka Dots said...

I forgot to mention, I did find the same cookie jar much cheaper, and am thinking seriously about snatching it up! You're right, a girl just has to treat herself sometimes!!!! Oh boy, just what I need, encouragement to spend some more money!!!!! :)
More hugs,

Betty@SouthernGrace said...

Well you finally did it..something I don't like. lol

Celestina Marie said...

Oh Carol, you are one cool grandma and this is an awesome doggy bars recipe. Sounds yummy enough for us to try. Miss B would have loved this treat. Gotta love the CloudK9 for being so nice and generous.
You have me LOL at the end with your free form treats!! LOL

Happy Weekend, CM XO

Kat said...

OMGoodness thank you for the recipe link and the doggie treat pics! I have been "making" my own dog food lately because of what is in the canned variety! ick! SO this will just be an added treat for my three amigos!!! :) love your blog, stop over for a visit! Our weather has been so hot again but today who knew overcast and im lovin it!! :) hugs kat =^.^=

I have been a follower of your blog for a couple of months. I really enjoy your posts!

I am amused by this post, because I live in a town where dogs rule (Laramie, WY)! A good percentage of the population love outdoor activities and they share these activities with their dogs. Many dogs have attended weddings and other celebratory events. (At my own wedding years ago, one of the guest dogs ate my food when my husband and I were asked to pose for photos by friends.)

I think your doggy bag treats are great, and your recipe is simple and obviously tasty (perhaps for some humans as well as for dogs)!

Something to think about for Christmas gifts for my many dog friends.

I wish your son, your soon to be DIL and your grand dog, the best of wishes!

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

Those cookies look good enough for us to eat. If I had a dog he would have to share. lol

The poop I'd skip....... rofl.


chris mckinley said...

Oh too funny!!! I will give this recipe a try! Love the doggie bags!!


Debbiedoo's said...

Melodee said...

so the big day is fast approaching.......how very exciting!!

Little Susie Home Maker said...

My favorite thing about this entire post, is the poop served on a pretty cake stand!! Thanks for all the tips, and I think the packages look like a lot of fun for the guests and their dogs!

Olivia said...

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

You have made such wonderful items for the wedding, Carol!

Chenille Cottage said...

Dear Carol,
You are so incredibly creative and generous with all your preparations for your son's wedding. What an awesome Mom-in-love Alicia is gaining! This will be a wedding reception to remember for years to come.
I had to chuckle at your doggie poop donuts...My Mom would be horrified, too!
Big hugs,
Carolynn xoxo

Kelley Highway said...

My pooches knew this recipe well: YUMMEROO! They loved it, too!

What a generous touch to the rehearsal dinner. You rock!
