What’s better than celebrating a national holiday? It’s celebrating it with your beloved fur babies! Everyone knows that St. Patrick’s Day is in March and Cincinnatians LOVE celebrating this holiday by wearing the color green and drinking green beer. Now you and your pups can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day together with my easy and fast DIY cookies and dog wear.
Yes, our pups will be eating and wearing green for this holiday. Just follow my fun furry recipes and DIY activities and your lucky dogs will think they won the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
Canine Clovers cookie recipe will have your dog jumping for joy when you treat them to these tail-wagging treats. Don’t worry, the “green” coloring we use is organic kale powder which is super healthy and happens to be a super food. However, you can always use an organic food coloring as a substitute for the powder.
