Tracy's Favorite Peanut Butter Dog Treats
dog biscuits. It has bothered me for ages that my little Romeo doesn’t
have a favorite treat. I mean there are bigger problems to have in the
world (I also know what it’s like to live with two hounds who would
knock over a garbage can without a second thought to get to the morsels
inside) but I think everyone should have at least one treat that they
love. At a vegan bake sale, my friend Robinlee Garber handed me a baggy
of homemade dog biscuits: “Try these.” I warned her that I’d never
found a biscuit Romeo liked. She simply smiled and repeated, “I want
you to try these.” Well, he was hooked. (Especially if they are covered
in carob.) Robinlee was right.
Robinlee is one of my favorite people in the world. With hair that is
even crazier than my own, she still manages to exude a serene, peaceful
but fun-loving demeanor. She and her adorable partner, Tracy, are mamas
to their beloved dog, Mercy (“the Queen of Love and Beauty,” says
Robinlee, and who am I to argue?), a pooch who no doubt has eaten her
way through many delicious batches of these biscuits.
You want to know what else makes Robinlee fabulous? She works with
Alzheimer’s patients and their families, is a wonderfully talented
singer-songwriter (seriously, check her out) and she is the Goddess in
Residence at the Chicago VeganMania Culture Café, working her heinie
off to create a beautiful, peaceful space and great live music all the
darn day long. Wow, I really like her! So would you if you knew her.
She is that lovely. So try her darling Tracy’s treats for your canine
friends and family and spread the love just a little more.
