Hairy Bakers – Healthy treats to make at home

Guest Post

Hello my name is Mungo and I live with my mummy, Tilly, in Scotland and my mistress, who is a very clever photographer who takes lots of photographs of me and other dogs, I am very important to her and she calls me her office manager. My master is a food writer and private chef, so it occurred to me that they could combine their talents with lots of help from my mummy and me and write a cookery book. My master is always very busy but we persuaded him that if we wrote the book he would check the recipes and that is what we have done.

The Hairy Bakers cookbook has 10 of our favourite recipes for our doggie snacks including Peamutt butter treats and Banana Barcottis. There are lots of photographs of us and our friends, and it would make a perfect Christmas present for any dog loving family. Don’t forget that my mistress also does doggie portraits, another Christmas present idea!
