On Halloween, many dogs will be trick-or-treating along with their people. Remember to keep your dog away from the candy – especially the chocolate, which can be toxic to dogs (See our previous post about Halloween safety.)  But no need to leave canine friends out of the fun. Here is a simple recipe for Peanut Butter Pumpkins that you can share with your favorite trick-or-treating dogs.
