My in-laws are avid campers, they take the family on week long camping trips all the time.  When my kids were younger my in-laws tried for years to drag us along on a camping trip but to my kids' ...

DIY Dog Treats – Healthy, Inexpensive, Easy!

Recently we went to Petco to buy more dog treats, we usually buy the bulk biscuits from the treat bar. The price had gone up to over $6 a pound.  The pre-packaged ones were more expensive, even those on sale.  The "organic" treats were in my opinion ridiculously priced, over $10 for a 6 oz. bag.
