Frozen Watermelon Dog Treats

It’s hot out. Don’t forget your dog!

While searching the internet, I found this ice cold delight on Pinterest. Not only is it the perfect summertime homemade dog treat, with just 3 ingredients, it’s easy too.


– 2 cups of watermelon (seedless, or if not, then remove the seeds)
– 1 cup Coconut water or milk
– 1 teaspoon honey (optional)

Add all three ingredients listed above and put them in a blender, then puree until the result is soupy, just like a juice. Pour the liquid into some ice cube trays and then stuff the trays into the freezer. It’s that simple. The hardest part is waiting for the ice cubes to freeze. Once they are frozen, feed them to your dogs. Not only will they make your four legged friend happy, people love them too.

I’ve also varied this recipe by slicing up a banana and/or other fruit, such as blueberries, and placing a sliver or two or a couple of berries in each of the holes in an ice tray, then filling with water and freezing make another great treat. My dogs go ape for this treat. Whichever way you decide to make it will certainly keep your dog cool and refreshed on a hot day.

* Please note that I’m neither a vet nor an animal nutritionist, so it’s advisable to consult with your own authority when trying new foods, and also to ensure that your dog’s home cooked diet is balanced & includes all of the nutrients that are necessary for your dog’s health.

Creating an advertisement for vacationing in the state gets her one step closer to achieving her career goal—partnership in Kolinsky’s Advertisement Agency.

Blake Langford is not willing to accept any exploitation of his beloved state, no matter how desirable the striking, southern blonde bombshell with fiery green eyes is, and he’s determined to sabotage Sam’s goal in every way. Falling in love with the enemy, however, was never part of the plan.

About the Author:Living in Alaska for 27 years, Devon McKay has many exciting stories to tell about the state. On several occasions, she was chased by a mother moose defending her young, stalked by a bear, endured temperatures of forty below and once was even trapped in an avalanche. She loved every minute of it!

After writing her first novel, Cowboy On The Run, she now calls a small ranch in Ohio home with her loving husband and teenage son. Although the farm life is slightly more laid back then the perils of Alaska, Devon enjoys the slower pace of the country lifestyle which gives her plenty of time to follow her passion of writing.
