Gummy Paws

Gummy Paws

I love to eat Gummy Bears. Doug prefers the sour Gummy Bears.  Kirby wants to eat Gummy Bears but we can't share because they aren't safe for dogs since they contain sugar, glucose syrup, food coloring, and may contain xylitol known to be toxic for dogs.

Now he can have his very own safe Gummy Paws (that he doesn't have to share with us). They're easy to make in a variety of flavors.

These puffs are soft and chewy.  They will keep a few days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Watch for mold and throw away at the first sign.
