Strawberry Banana Pupsicles

Today we are celebrating Layla’s Gotcha Day! 2 years ago today we were scooping her up from Busch Vizsla in Winnebago, IL and starting the nearly 13 hour drive home with a 7 week old puppy πŸ™‚ Neither of us having had a dog before we were very excited, but also a little nervous about what to expect from our new addition. 

She surprised us by being a very easy passenger. She mostly slept the whole way – that’s what puppies do, mostly sleep… and pee all over the house! Haha, luckily that phase didn’t last too long πŸ˜‰ She grew so quickly (another thing puppies tend to do) it is hard to remember that she was ever that small! But she was such a little munchkin, only 7 pounds when we brought her home! She’s now full grown at 46 pounds and quite sure of herself. 

Her favorite things include off-leash runs, snuggling, licking our dinner plates and TREATS! 

You may have noticed that we like taking any excuse to spoil and celebrate our favorite pup! As a special treat to celebrate her gotcha day I made these Strawberry Banana Pupsicles! 

The “pupsicle” part is just strawberries, bananas and greek yogurt, blended up and frozen, the “pupsicle” stick is a large Milk-Bone biscuit! 

She was a bit skeptical of them at first, but after a while she got into it. She was a little confused why she couldn’t eat the “pupsicle” stick first… 

In the end, though she clearly enjoyed the “pupsicle”, I think she was thinking “man that was the hardest I’ve ever worked for a Milk-Bone”, ha! Which might also say something about our puppy parenting skills, hehe…. 

Give them a try and let me know how your pup likes them!
