John fixed it for me today, putting on a thick skim coat. He says it will be OK, I hope so!
I have a new friend. Look closely, he's right in the middle of the photo.
I don't even know his name. I just call him "Big Dog", but he is completely deaf so it doesn't make any difference what I call him. He's a rescue dog, very old, and my neighbor said he's not only deaf, but also blind. I beg to differ. He can definitely see, because he waits at that fence and watches for me every day. When he sees me in the yard, the tail wags......
And he starts licking his chops. Because I bake him cookies and give him daily treats. He's been terribly abused, and he's so thin and crippled he can hardly walk. He is a love, and he deserves to be loved.
Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits with Molasses
Yields 40-50 biscuits
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup rolled oats
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup milk (I use fat free)
3/4 to 1 cup peanut butter (I use 3/4 cup natural peanut butter)
1 tbsp. blackstrap molasses
Additional Flour for Rolling
Preheat oven to 350° F
Whisk the flour, oats and baking powder together in a medium bowl. Gradually stir in the milk, peanut butter and molasses.
(I just dump evertything into the food processor and turn it on. It's a very stiff dough, so I have to stop the processor and push the dough around a few times)
Turn out onto a floured surface.
Knead until a soft dough forms.
Roll out to 1/2" thickness and cut with a dog bone cookie cutter.
(I just cut the dough into strips, about 3/4" wide and 2" long)
Bake for 20 minutes, then turn off the oven.
Let cool overnight in the oven. (I open the oven door just a wee bit to let some of the heat escape, then shut it and leave the cookies in over night).
