The Hours of Fun Treat
Posted by Frank Jackson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get one of those hollow, white bones from the pet store. They're bleached white bone and have nothing in the center where the marrow and other yucky stuff would normally be. The one I had was about 2 inches in length with a diameter of about 2 inches. I'm not sure what the commercial name of these things are so I hope you know what I'm talking about.
Take some flour, (not the self-rising kind, the un-self-rising kind), about a spoonful of dried garlic granules, and some water and mixed it into a thick paste. Then stuff the bone with this paste. Bake at 100 degrees for about 3 hours or 50 degrees for six hours or 25 degrees for 12 hours depending on how much time you have.
I let it cool and gave it to Kelly. She worked on it like it was the best thing she'd ever eaten for two hours. Finally when she went out for her last pee of the night I had to hide it from her. She spent fifteen minutes looking for it. The good thing about it is that it really kept her occupied and it's a healthy treat - no sugar, chemicals, etc. You could mix yogurt into the flour instead of water and you could add kelp and other healthy things.

* 1 pound of chicken livers
* 1/4 cup salad oil
* 1/2 cup water
* 3 or more cloves of garlic
* 2+ cups of flour
* optional goodies: bacon bits, grated cheese
Place liver, oil, water, garlic and the optional goodies in a blender or food processor, and liquify them. Pour them into a bowl, add flour until you have a stiff but sticky batter. Pour into greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for at least 1 hour. After 1 hour cut a small slice and if any pink is showing, return it to the oven for about 15 minutes more. Must be well done.
Be warned that once a dog tries this cake, they have been known to stand in front of the oven drooling while it is baking.
