Homemade dog biscuits for Wallace and Angus

Bow Wow Biscuit day for Wallace and Angus.  They love these homemade dog treats, if you have the time they are a great healthy alternative to store bought.  The recipe includes brewers yeast and garlic powder and claims to help with fleas.  Now I know this is a photography blog, but for a little variety I thought others might appreciate my wife’s recipe below.
