Kale Tree Treats Ingredients: 1 cup minced fresh kale 3 strips of bacon, microwaved then minced 1 Tbsp. olive oil 1 egg 2 cups flour 1/4 cup broth (beef, chicken or vegetable; bouillon is not recommended - too salty)
Mix all ingredients together. Dough should be stiff. Roll to 1/4" thick (for big dogs; much thinner for small dogs and humans) and cut into tree-shaped wedges. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes or until crisp, then cool.
Optional: For humans, you may want to add a little garlic powder and regular salt for extra flavor. Yummy with hummus!

Our December Meeting
Our annual Board meeting was held in the community building at Oscar Frazier Park on December 17. Our thanks go to all of you who took time out of your busy schedules to join us. We welcomed our two new Board members, Phillip Rabonowich and Andy Miller, and discussed our upcoming bowling event (tentative date February 14). More details later...
Our Board meetings are open to the public and we welcome your participation. We have not set another Board meeting date yet. If you have any ideas or concerns please feel free to contact one of us (click on the Board of Directors button for contact info for the current Board members).
Show your support for the dog park and purchase personalized pavers to be installed in the park. They make a great gift or remembrance, and since Friends of Bluffton Dog Parks is a non-profit 501(c)(3), your gift or donation is tax-deductible. To print a purchase form, just click on the "paver form" button to the right, complete and mail it to us... or you can purchase via the web on the DONATE page.
Right now we have 75 pavers; most of them will be installed in the park (several people are going to use them at home). Our thanks go to Jennifer Megliore, who spearheaded this project and who kept track of all the donations and forms.
