Last month, we celebrated Clem’s 8th birthday. EIGHT YEARS?! Where did the time go?
Hi my name is Clem and this is my own personal teepee. I am spoiled. Thanks @vintagekandy! #dog #dogsofinstagram #instadog #pup #jackrussell #terrier #terror #pooch #adorbs #dogsofig #jrt #teepee #poser #spoiled #spoiledrotten

There are several dog-friendly recipes on this site, so I wanted to make Clem a new one for her birthday. (Like this one and this one!) I decided to tackle Frosty Paws — without all of the junk inside them. You may ask: what are Frosty Paws? Well, I suppose I would call it doggie ice cream. I only bought them once for Clem, for her first birthday. They were a little large for her puppy mouth and I think she got a little brain-freezed.
Although the photo above is cute, I think that last year’s photo shoot went better 😉
This time, I made them from only wholesome ingredients, so your pup can cool down in a safe and healthy way. I know that the heat will be oppressive here in just a few short weeks, so our freezer is stocked up with this recipe!
Clem’s Pumpkin “Frosty Paws” RecipeCourse: Uncategorized
1 c. canned pumpkin
1/2 c. dry dog food (whatever your pup eats)
1 T. natural peanut butter
- Combine all of the ingredients in your food processor and run it until everything is smooth, namely the dry dog food.
- The perfect mold for these Frosty Paws knockoffs? Those little paper (light cardboard, almost) cupcake liners. This recipe fills about 6 of those cups, about half-way full.
- Freeze the cups for a few hours and store in the freezer until use (in a airtight bag or container). Let them thaw out on the counter at least two hours before feeding them to your dog.
- I hope you and your pups enjoy this recipe 🙂
