A Thanksgiving Doggie Cookie recipe
Pumpkin Peanut Nutter Butters
Ingredients: 1/2 cup pumpkin 2 eggs 2 1/2 cups flour 2 Tbsp. peanut butter 1/2 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Mix all ingredients together. Dough should be dry and stiff (mix in a few drops of water if needed to make it workable). Roll to 1/2" thick and use a small cutter to cut into desired shapes. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes until crisp, then cool. Spread one cookie with a thin layer of peanut butter and top with another cookie.
Your dog will love the new tradition of having homemade treats for Thanksgiving!

The proposed dog park site was discussed at the Bluffton Town Council meeting on Tuesday, November 18. Town Manager Marc Orlando reported that he had received County Administrator Gary Kubic's letter recommending a parcel of land in Oscar J. Frazier Park for the dog park. Councilman Hamilton would like neighborhood input before proceeding. Orlando suggested gathering information about the size and other characteristics of the park. The Council agreed on this course of action.
We look forward to providing input so the town can take the next step in approving the park location.
All of our Board members attended the Council meeting along with a group of volunteers and supporters, fulfilling our plan to show community commitment to the park. Our thanks to all who were able to be there!
Watch this space for updates - we ARE making progress!
