International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day
Today, February 23rd is considered the best day of the year for dogs. Do you know, why? Because today Dog Biscuit Day is celebrated!
Where and when did this holiday appear?
Nobody knows for sure the origin of this holiday. But around 1828, small quantities of dog biscuits began to be produced in England. Although a kind of dog bread had already been around for many years, this particular biscuit was different. It consisted of meat, grains, and vegetables. Later, of course, it evolved into the already familiar one to us and is still loved and eaten by all dogs in the world. The first major dog biscuit maker was James Spratt from Ohio, who came to England and produced the biscuit in 1860. And already in 1907, the first biscuit in the shape of a bone for dogs appeared in America and was immediately approved.
It is interesting.
- The largest biscuit weighed 279.87 kilograms and was made in Missouri in 2011.
- If you eat some dog biscuits, nothing will happen to you because they are eatable. However, overeating can cause feelings of nausea.
Sometimes it can be difficult to figure out which dog biscuits to buy at the store. Celebrate Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day together with your pet treating it with biscuits you made by yourself. It deserves it!
What you will need for the cinnamon apple treats:
- 1 cup of dry instant oatmeal
- ½ cup of applesauce
- 1 large egg
Firstly, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Secondly, mix the applesauce and oatmeal in a bowl, then add the egg continue stirring. Finally, put the mixture in small portions on a baking sheet and bake for 22 minutes.
Overall, it is very important to remember that the biscuits should be given to your dog only as a special occasion treat. Biscuits and other snacks don’t replace the entire normal diet and constitute 10% of the dog’s daily meal. Overeating can lead to excess weight. What’s more, you need to be careful and ask your vet before feeding your dog new food. Pay attention to the ingredients because your pet may be allergic to any of the components. Make the right choice and happy International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day!
