Featured Image Source

If you’re anything like me, you feel a bit guilty when you have a huge meal and your pet can’t partake. If you’re also anything like me, that guilt destroys you and you end up giving your furry friend your plate to lick clean by the end of the meal, even if it’s not specifically in their diet.

We love our pets, but this year, instead of giving Fido all the hamburgers you just grilled for the human side of your family, why not make your pets something specifically for them? That’s right, we’re talking PUPsicles! Sorry for the pun, I had to!
