Give it a try!

Pumpkin Ice Cream Recipe For Dogs

Ingredients:

1 cup canned pumpkin puree (be sure it’s not pie filling!)
1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
½ cup organic peanut butter

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a blender then pour into ice cube trays. Freeze and serve frozen. You can transfer the cubes to an airtight bag or container.

Make Your Own Pumpkin Puree

When it’s pumpkin season, you can make your own pumpkin puree fresh pumpkins are available (or you’ve grown your own).
Preheat your oven to 375° F. Cut up one small sugar pumpkin and remove the seeds (set these aside for roasting for yourself). Place the pumpkin pieces in a large baking pan, and cover with foil or a lid. Bake for one hour, or until very tender. Remove from the oven, and set aside to cool. Scrape pumpkin into a food processor and purée until smooth.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
