Happy 16th Birthday Ralphie! You’re officially an old man dog if 7 dog years to human years is accurate. Over the last few months you have gone blind and mostly deaf. It breaks my heart to think about your dark, quiet world but somehow you manage. You kind of shuffle around and slowly bump into things. My husband calls you the Dog Roomba! You’re still hungry for your favorite foods, chicken, meat, soup and salmon so as long as you want to eat, can walk around and go the bathroom I think you have a decent quality of life. I made you these fun dog treats for your bday that you really loved! Even my kids ate them!
No bake peanut butter and oat dog treats
- 3/4 Cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 1/4 cup oats
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 water
- Mix peanut butter, cinnamon and water until smooth. You may add more water if you need to. Mixture should be thick.
- Gradually add oats
- Form into round balls
- Chill in fridge.

Leave me a comment of how old your dachshund is or how long your dachshund lived. I’m always amazed when I hear about old guys/gals that hang around a long time!
