Ask your kids what they think Clifford the Big Red Dog™ eats and drinks to stay healthy. If you have a dog, these treats are a great way to model that animals need our love and care. If you don’t have a dog, make plans to spend time with the dog of a friend or family member.

Dog Treats: A snack for dogs

3 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. powdered dry milk
1 c. rye flour
1 package dry yeast
1 c. cornmeal
2 c. chicken or beef stock
2 c. wheat germ
1 beaten egg

Combine all dry ingredients. Add stock gradually and mix. Shape into balls and roll out on a floured board. Cut cookies using cookie cutter in the shape of a dog bone. Brush tops with egg. Bake 40-45 minutes at 300 degrees.

Puppy Chow Recipe: A snack for girls and boys (not dogs!)

Create a simple recipe for “puppy chow” using equal parts of favorite snack-time ingredients: pretzels, raisins, dried cranberries or other dried fruit pieces, and KIX cereal.

We wanted to hit the April 18th Clifford breakfast, but it was sold out and so we're now scheduled for May. So I was going to use the extra time to build even more excitement for the event. I was in the MCM shop and looking for Clifford cards or stickers or paw prints or something small. I thought I would send something (via snail mail, gasp!) to my child and another that's going with us. The store at MCM had Clifford books and T's but I didn't see anything small like I described. If anyone has any ideas where I could quickly pick something up in town, let me know. Thanks.
