{RECIPE} Yogurt Gelatin Healthy Heart Gummy Dog Treats

These little hearts are so easy and our dogs LOVE them.  Made in two steps to protect the probiotic content of the yogurt, these gummies are quick and healthy treats that you can feel good about sharing with your dog...even literally if you'd like to sample! I'm not into eating gelatin myself, but it's great for humans as well as dogs. :)  When made with plain yogurt, these gummies are naturally a creamy white, but the mixture can also be tinted with either compatibly flavoured natural colourings or food colouring before pouring into your molds if you wish.

Twisted Box Knot vs. Circle Twist DIY Fleece Dog Tug Toys

Humphrey can't see the difference, can you see the difference?  Me neither. :)  In fact, when weaving with soft cooperative fleece, I can change seamlessly between the two different weaving methods within the same toy without seeing any visible difference whatsoever! Not that you'd have any reason to, but I did it anyway as part of my comparisons. Natural variations like subtleties of strand size/position, tightness of the weave, etc. (which are factors no matter how I make fleece tug toys in any shape/method) have a far greater effect on the finished tug than which of the two methods I use. So how do you weave a toy with both methods, which should you choose, and why?
