I did not choose Loki. Lauren wanted a dog, so we visited the local shelter to look at them. We met a few and then we met Loki, who did not have a name. He had arrived at the shelter that very day, May 18th of 2013.
It started with an intense desire to have a second dog. I tested the waters with Odin, who we rehabbed for a few months and rehomed. I wanted a dog that Loki could play with, and always have around so he was never totally bored. My heart had already been set on a pit mix, since the dog I had growing up was a pit mix. Knowing that black dogs are overlooked, I knew I had to seek out a black colored pit (though I wasn't really going to select on color if it came down to it). With a lifestyle like mine, a dog needs to fit a certain set of criteria to make the cut. They must be friendly, with dogs and people! They must not be protective or possessive, and they must be accepting of horses. Having three cats at home only complicates the matter more.
Are you ready to make some fun, wholesome cookies for your dogs and horses? I made this base recipe up as I went, and it turned out great! Depending on how long you cook them, they can be soft and chewy or crispy on the outside with a soft center. If you let them sit in the oven after you turn the oven off or bake for longer at a lower temperature, or make them extra thin, they will become crunchy all the way through! We like the chewy centers 😉
