Since blueberries remind me of warmer weather, I wish things were nicer outside right now. But for the time being, this wonderful recipe for blueberry and pumpkin dog treats will have to do because I won’t be taking a flight to the Dominican Republic.
The blueberries in this homemade dog treat add a touch of sweetness, and the pumpkin adds some beneficial digestive characteristics. I used frozen blueberries rather than fresh because it is January, and the treats were still great.
