|Lulu's peanut butter jar. She likes Skippy.|
This is Lulu's Heartgard. I had to give it to her anyway, so I put on a dollop of peanut butter.
Look at those eyes! She is excited!
She took it down in one gulp though! No lip smacking! I don't know about you, but if you don't enjoy a dog eating peanut butter, you probably have no soul.
So I pulled out a spoon and... well, here's how she took it.

So I know what you'll ask -- is peanut butter even good for dogs?
Actually peanut butter is: in small doses. It's great for giving your pet a pill, or mixing it with fruit and yogurt for a special treat. Or you can do what I do and just give her a spoonful. Just one spoonful. Or stuff some in a Kong and freeze it for a busy treat.
Peanut butter is a good source of protein and vitamins too. Not just for your pet, but for you. Just try to stick to the natural peanut butters. If you can, go completely natural -- no salt or sugar.
Just be aware: like people, dogs can get peanut allergies too. They can develop over time. You might see itching, redness and bald spots. Those are pretty telltale signs for most food allergies.
Now, if you have some culinary skill, you could try your hand at making peanut butter treats! Head over to our buddies at Kol's Notes for all kinds of peanut butter treats.
