Halloween is upon us, which means it is now socially acceptable — nay, encouraged –to shove all of the treats into your face hole. Forget costumes, candy is the real reason for the season and I don’t take that lightly. Because candy becomes a veritable food group this time of year, there are bound to be lots of sad, soul-crushing, puppy dog eyes lusting after a bite of the sweet stuff.
But never fear! We’ve rounded up some dog-friendly recipes so you can make your pup some tasty treats — and even their own version of some Halloween staples. So you can keep your soul, y’know, uncrushed.
