Doggie Banana Split

I firmly believe that dogs deserve to experience the good things in life – including banana splits. I made this for Panza the other night. We gave it to her in place of her dinner after a long walk. I know the ingredients have more sugar than dogs are really supposed to eat and doesn’t have the necessary nutrients dogs are supposed to eat in their meals, but getting a banana split once in her life for dinner isn’t gonna hurt her. The recipe requires a few steps and different ingredients. And maybe I’m crazy for making this or maybe I have too much time on my hands? Either way I promise your dog will be very happy with this for dinner.
