Beef Pupcake Dog Food Recipe

PetGuide logo

In the introduction of my recipes, I usually write about what I like best about the dish I just made or about an ingredient that stands out. But this time, I think I’ll let the picture above do the taking. This is the first time that Oscar ran away with the photo shoot. The little bugger snuck up while I was taking pictures and ran off with one of my Beef Pupcakes! It’s like I don’t feed him or something. He jumped up on the chair, snatched the closest one to the edge and took off like a bat out of hell to the safety to his bed to partake in his ill-gotten booty. I was laughing so hard, I couldn’t stop him from finishing it. He earned that pupcake. And really, the highest form of praise for any chef is an entrée worth stealing for, isn’t it?
