What's also good in a basket-blueberry muffins.
July is National Blueberry Month and as it draws to a close its the perfect time to treat yourself and your pooch to some delicious blueberries. Blueberries are considered one of the healthiest foods out there (for dogs and people). They have the highest antioxidant capacity of all fresh fruit, help slow down the aging process, protect the brain, heart, eyes, urinary tract, and digestive system. In short they are a super food especially for senior dogs.
Since blueberries are so amazing mom decided to make us some muffins, and since we love us some meat and some coconut she threw some of that stuff in too. (Note: these muffins are grain free)
