Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
SUGAR is an Irish Dog Today!
March holiday signals the start of Spring (hopefully it will come soon for our Midwest and East Coast friends). You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patrick’s Day is a cultural celebration on the 17th of March, in honor of the patron saint of Ireland. Many people throughout the world, Irish and non-Irish alike, celebrate with food, drink and especially the all things “green” theme.
Don’t forget your furry friend on St. Patrick’s Day. One way to celebrate is giving your dog Tasty “green” Treats. Here are 5 GREEN Dog Treats for St. Patrick’s Day
1) Luck of Irish Oatmeal: St. Patrick’s Breakfast made with spinach and peas. The recipe is from EveryDay with Rachael Ray magazine.
2) KALE Ice Pops made with kale, coconut oil and ginger.
3) Shamrock Treats for Fresh Dog Breath from Minnie in Manhattan

Luck Of The Irish Oatmeal
(from page 118, EveryDay with Rachel Ray)
Makes: 4 cups
Prep: 5 min
cook: 25 min
6 cups of vegetable stock
1 1/2 cups steel-cut (not rolled or instant) oats
1 box(10oz) frozen peas, thawed
1 box(10oz) frozen spinach, thawed
Grated Parmesan, for sprinkling
In a large saucepan, bring stock and oats to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the oats are tender, about 25 minutes. Stir in the peas and spinach, then sprinkle with the Parmesan.
2 main ingredients are Spinach and Peas
Can Dogs eat Spinach and Peas?
Spinach contains vitamin A, C, B,and K. Vitamin C and K can promote healthy bones for dogs. Spinach also contains beta-carotene and plant crude fibre, which can promote gastrointestinal peristalsis.
Peas are great source of vitamin K,and C. Peas are high in dietary fiber and minerals which helps improve dog’s immune system.
I made some modification to the recipe …
1) cook the oats with Ginger water (boiled water w/ginger) and honey
2) use fresh spinach
3) puree spinach and peas, use it as a top garnish
4) parmesan cheese optional
5) use mini cupcake molds for individual servings
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, showing off a tiny bit of green.

“What do you mean it’s not for me?” … reason for my facial reaction.
It’s for a very lucky pup that lives in CA.
Soon we will re-open our shop, Sugar’s Paw House.
