Give Peace a Chance

Although I'm sure that Baxter wouldn't want all the neighborhood dogs to see this photo - it might ruin his street cred as a bad ass - I couldn't resist posting it here. That little grey thing snuggled up beside him? It's MAX! And on Baxter's favorite blanket, no less.

After some intense negotiations and sensitivity training, Baxter and Max have come to an agreement. Baxter has agreed not to eat Max. Or step on him. Max has in turn agreed not to slice Baxter to ribbons with his razor sharp claws, or make him yelp by biting his nose with his needle-like milk teeth.

In honor of Baxter being a good doggie and playing nice with the twee widdle kitty, I'm posting a recipe for his favorite treats, Baxter's Bacon Bites.

3 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 cup crumbled bacon (I use Bacon Bits that you find in the salad section - inexpensive, and they keep forever in the fridge)
1/2+ cup cold water

Directions: Mix ingredients together thoroughly. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/4" to 1/2" thickness. Cut with cookie cutter or slice with a knife into treat sized rectangles. Bake at 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes.

Oh Baxter, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em right? There's enough treats to go around.
