    But is there much harm feeding your dog real ice cream? Because I could of sooooo bought me some ice cream and shared with my dogs and instead I got the dogs ice cream and I do not want them to share it with me lol, nor did they want to haha.

    There is no harm in sharing ice cream with your dog but some dont tolerate dairy.

    My first poodle always had a dish of vanilla ice cream in the summer when we went to a stand, she was fine... Bella had diarrhea everywhere the first time we gave it to her... so no more for her... Elle is okay with small amounts and Mr. Iron stomach can eat any amount.

    As far as those treats I dont know anything about them but Purina scares me.

    Frosty Paws have been around a LONG time. Never caused a problem for either of our dogs, although it kind of weirds me out that it doesn't melt...gross.

    I now get http://www.yoghund.com/ as a summer treat instead. Ingredients I understand, and smells so darn good, I've been really tempted to try it!

    Really? I left a container on the counter for over 30 minutes one day (was about to head out the door and got sidetracked) and it was still the same texture it was when I took it out of the freezer. Maybe a little softer, but still sort of hard-ice creamy. Just weirded me out a bit. Like I said, I look at the ingredients in Yogund and it seems like the smarter choice. Plus when I went to find there website, saw that they now offer a second flavor...mmmm. Meg's only had the peanut butter/banana one.

    Our Bedlington loved them so much, you could barely enter the room while he was eating them. He'd get tense, start to growl, etc. Ah, the joys of oblivion, before we knew what "resource guarding" was, and we just thought "How funny! Look how much he loves them!".

    I just freeze yogurt in an ice cream tray... I can't imagine feeding this stuff - the ingredients are GROSS.

    "High quality protein" from what? The SOY?!

    Homemade:
    32 oz. plain yogurt
    2 Tbls. Peanut Butter
    2 Tbls. Honey
    1 banana

    Mix in blender, pour into individual cups/ice cube tray.

    I mix it up sometimes and add different things (blueberries, etc. . . canned pumpkin is also good for upset stomachs). I feed crap treats to my dogs on occasion, but if I like making new things (that don't make my house smell :p) and if it's healthier to boot then I'm all for it.

    I have yet to have a dog eat Frosty Paws that didn't end up explosive diarrhea for over a day afterwards. No thank you. :yikes:

    I've seen those for years now but the last time I looked it said it had peanut butter in it (we avoid all nuts and peanuts in everything-if the dog ate it and licked dd she would have a reaction, probably) but yours doesn't say that. Maybe I should check another store. Our dog would love that in the summer.

    eta: never mind. After reading the thread I'm going to make it myself. ;)

    Purina gave them out for free at woofstock. Cider thought it was vile and wouldn't touch it, the other dogs in our group were all sick the next day.

    I'd rather put some real ice cream in their kongs on occasion.
