Luke’s Kitchen Sink Dog Bones

Luke is my daughter’s dog. He is also a rescue and one of the sweetest yet strangest dogs I have ever known. Luke was a stray. He is missing part of his ear. Even though we have had him for over four years, he is still afraid of noises and quickly moving objects. Luke tries to eat gum that is plastered to the sidewalk, if you are not watching. And he hordes, which can get very funny. I will come home to find a huge pile of bones, toys, various kitchen utensils, my clothes, and miscellaneous items he has collected, piled in the center of my bedroom floor. He has also developed a Pavlovian response when the phone rings. The second he hears it, he comes running and will sit and bark at me the entire time I am on the phone. Not my favorite behavior. If Luke were a boy child instead of a boy dog, he would have the worst case of ADHD documented. All that said, he is sweet. So very, very sweet.




Luke normally lives in the Mountains of Colorado. His life consists of accompanying my daughter on her various adventures. You rarely see Mia without Luke at her side. Unfortunately for Luke, Mia is also a bit of a globe trotter. She has studied in Australia, and snowboarding in Argentina. Currently she is teaching snowboarding in New Zealand.  While she is traveling, Luke gets to come back to his original home, my home and drive me nuts for a few months at a time. It is always an adventure having Luke here. I often see my dogs looking at him with a quizzical expression. I can just hear their thoughts…”What the heck is up with him?”

Thinking that Luke deserved his moment in the spot light, as I have already written about Sadie and Skyler, I bring you Luke’s special raw dog biscuits. It is a recipe that I have developed that uses your aging produce and makes your dogs happy. A win-win situation any day.

These are a great way to use up any extra veggies that you have sitting around and are getting ready to spoil. You can even eat them!

    LOL, I didn’t see your note, but guess where I found the cookie cutter? Michael’s!

    Made these last night. Maya is in heaven!

    Oh, now look what you’ve done. Maya is insisting I make these for her at once. *wink*

    Seriously, ingenious way to make use of leftover juice pulp! LOVE it. I am in search of a doggie bone cookie cutter today.

    Luke, the horder. Bless is heart and pee-sized brain. And, bless your daughter for rescuing him.

    “Arrrrrrrrroooooooooo.” (that was Maya ‘talking’ to Skyler, as only Sibes do)

    Our dog is a rescue too. We’ve had her 10 1/2 years and still has some of the strange traits she had when we rescued her. Ah, that just makes her an original…just like Luke. Love the treat recipe. Will definitely try it.
