Country biscuits and sausage gravy might be the ultimate comfort food.

When your dog who normally looks at you with total devotion and admiration suddenly looks at you with reproach, you know something is wrong. That’s been happening on a repeat cycle with our family dog. We’ve discovered the issue and although it can’t be eliminated, we know how to deal with it now. There’s nothin’ that good ole’ country biscuits and sausage gravy can’t fix—for people or dogs! Want the recipe? You’ve got it!

You know when you need a haircut and then you get one…and it looks awful the first few days? Hate it! That just-shorn look is totally unappealing. Turns out dogs can have the same kind of reaction to bad hair days. At least, that’s the way our family’s dog feels about it.

Cooper seems to prefer that wild and free rebel-dog look ‘cause he hates getting haircuts. He just mopes around the house every time he gets one. He makes everyone feel bad!

So of course, everyone wants to mollify the little guy. Dad’s solution is to sneak Cooper bits of people food. Cooper especially loves it when Dad makes his signature biscuits and gravy for us. Umm…OK short term maybe…but the rest of us tend to think it is not a great idea.

Before his last haircut, we decided we would give Cooper some Vita Bone treats to cheer him up. It worked!

Especially cool was my sister got some Vita Bone Country Biscuits, Sausage & Gravy flavor soft treats. Cooper was distracted from his moping because…food! Treats with a favorite, comforting, familiar flavor. And the rest of us got to enjoy our dinner without feeling guilty that poor Cooper was either going to eat people food he shouldn’t have or (horror!) be deprived.

Amazingly, Cooper’s Vita Bone treats smell liked the real thing too! They’re made with real meat, fruit, and veggies. There is no corn, soy, by-products, no artificial flavors, and none of that yucky dog-treat smell. You can learn more. So we ate Dad’s really good biscuits and sausage gravy and Cooper ate Vita Bone really good Country Biscuits, Sausage & Gravy flavor treats.

And we all lived happily ever after! Except that’s not really the end of the story because dog cannot live on biscuits, sausage, and gravy alone. No! Cooper must have variety in life, just as we do. My sister has the cupboard stocked with several other Cooper-approved flavors, too. BBQ Chicken & Sweet Potato flavor biscuits (think picnics/family reunions), Maple Bacon & Blueberry flavor biscuits (breakfast in bed), Turkey Stuffing & Cranberry flavor biscuits (Thanksgiving is just around the corner), Turkey Pot Roast & Red Potato flavor soft treats (because “every day should be treat day”—that’s a direct Cooper quote).
