If your pooch is like most, he'll be begging for a treat this holiday period. Make him a little something special with this recipe from Tina Miller, Meijer Healthy Living Advisor, for Fido's Fabulous People Biscuits.

1/4 cup warm water
8 chicken or beef bouillon cubes
1 package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon  Meijer sugar
1 1/2 cups tomato juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups wheat germ

1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Pour warm water in a large bowl, add the sugar and yeast and let stand for about 5 minutes.  Add bouillon cubes, crushing them as you stir them in.
2.  Add tomato juice, 1 cup all-purpose flour and wheat germ, stirring until you form a thin paste.  Add remaining flour and work together into a thick dough using hands.
3.  Sprinkle flour onto a pastry or cutting board.  Take a "couple handfuls" of dough and work into a small ball shape.   Use a rolling pin to flatten dough to about 1/4" thickness.  (If dough is sticky, add a little more flour.)  Using a table knife or sturdy cookie cutters, cut dough into people shapes (or whatever shape you desire).  Repeat this process with remaining dough.
4.  Use a spatula to transfer biscuits from cutting board to a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour.  Afterwards, let them dry in turned-off oven (or at room temperature) for about four hours. 
Serve with love and a fresh bowl of water!
