I make my kids pupsicles. Nonfat plain yogurt blended with pink salmon (or mackerel, or tuna or chicken) split into 2-3oz ramikins and frozen. One takes his time licking it slowly, one licks for 5 minutes then bites, the third one pops it out of the ramikin and chomps it. She also waits at the ice dispenser on freezer to see if any falls to the floor.

My dog Luna LOVES cheese! I can't even say (cheese) in normal conversation without her perking up and coming to me. Maybe I should use the cheese command instead of the come command. : )

My two labs, a chocolate and yellow, both prefer White Castle sliders to any organic treats...

My dog Dusty loves sweet potato and turkey treats and applesauce and cheese treats... I try and bake most of them myself- all organic all healthy!

My young lady (golden retriever) loves carrots, blueberry and strawberry. Her "carrot time" means she will go into her room. She balances strawberry on her nose and catches when I give her "ok" to eat. When we go to a farm for our blueberry picking. She will wait at the "barking lot" patiently so she can get her fresh rewards.

My dog's favorite healthy pet treat is a kong filled with peanut butter and So Delicious coconut milk yogurt. I freeze it overnight, and she just goes to town on it! It's so funny to see her get so excited every time I open the freezer door!

I'd like to say that my dog Hannah's favorite treats are the peanut butter biscuits I make for her, but she's interested in any and all people food -- she even stuck her snout into my spinach salad one day! Barbecue is yummy, too. And she always "helps" me load the dishwasher by licking any remains from the plates on the bottom rack.

Oh, and my cat Edie (aka Princess Edie and Edie Monster) loves chicken anything -- Greenies, Whisker Lickins, you name it. And the other day while I was baking, I caught her putting her nose into the bowl of raw eggs...I just saved them from her.

My BT, Katy goes crazy for apples! Her favorite way to eat them is "out of hand" or should I say "out of my hand"! The minute I started biting into an apple, she magically appears in front of me with this "you're not going to eat all of that, are you?" look on her face. Once I've had my share, I hold it for her; she gingerly starts to take a bite, then another, and if I don't stop her, she'd eat the whole thing, core and all! If I just sit there and hold the remnants of the apple, she thinks I'm just playing hard to get and will try to get just one more bite. There's nothing cuter than a short-nosed Boston eating an apple!

My dog, Monte, loves anything and everything that has the slighest hint of Chicken! He goes crazy for any type of small morsel of this meat, that it's hilarious. He practically stands on his little white head! :)

My kitty is always bringing me rats from the outside as some sort of offer, so I like to repay him with fresh shrimp. He gobbles it up every time!

We discovered long ago that our dog, Missy, loves carrots and of course, cheese. She is a very healthy 10 years old now and still has a lot of puppy-type energy left in her.

My dog will eat about anything - spinach, carrots, tomatoes . . . even lettuce but I think his favorite treat is beets. I make them for salads and stuff during the week and he loves it when I feed him pieces from the counter. We have him pretty well trained not to jump up but when he smells the beets he generally can't help himself!

My dog's favorite treat was frozen green beans. Yep. After a long walk, he'd wait for his frozen treat after our time out getting healthy and warm. Cooling off with tasty and healthy frozen treats are the best! I hope my new pup I'm adopting will also love them. :)

We adopted an adorable shephard/lab/pitbull/who knows mix the day after this past Christmas. I currently work as an AmeriCorps*VISTA so buying fancy treats was not an option for us. The dog food, vaccinations, and crate was enough! A fellow AmeriCorps*VISTA told me that her dogs LOVE carrots, so I tried it out. Low and behold our dog, Kenya, loves them as well. For those who don't know AmeriCorps*VISTA is often referred to as "the domestic Peace Corps". VISTAs live at the level of poverty to better understand the communities they serve. Most VISTAs also receive food stamps. I'm able to purchase the carrots with my food stamps as treats for my dog without going over my $800/month budget. Awesome!

My 2 english cocker spaniels wag their tails with excitement uncontrolably when they hear the bag open for their treats I buy at Whole Foods - Wellness Wellbites - Lamb & Salmon flavor! They are good boys :)

ICE!! I have a Pomeranian and he loves ice cubes! As soon as he hears the sound of the ice tray cracking or ice clanking in a glass he comes racing in from wherever he is, full speed, and will stare you down until you share your ice with him. It's great, healthy, refreshing, FREE and there's an endless supply!!!

A bowl of cereal is not safe when my kitty Jasmine is around. She will jump on the table, on your lap, or just anywhere in the vicinity to eat from your bowl! Breakfast is no longer safe in our house when corn flakes and milk are in the area!

Snowball, my cat, loves eating fresh cooked chicken breast, and can't resist fresh cooked fish, like salmon or tuna.

My dog Ernie loves scrambled eggs. I give him my kid's leftovers after breakfast and he thinks he has earned the "best dog award" for the year!!!

I have three dogs and three cats that love anything that I am eating. Lettuce, apples, sweet potato it doesn't matter.

Seriously, pine cones and ice cubes. Of course, we don't let her eat the pine cones but she loves to steal them!
