from TX-RPOA~Who Are the Real “Extremists” in Texas?!?/Christmas Biscuit Recipes for Rover
If there’s one thing RPOA has observed over the past quarter century spent
exposing the radical Animal Rights Agenda, it is that they do NOT like to be
referred to as “extremists.” But if the shoe fits … wear it. As the FBI
study states: “All animal rights groups are connected by leadership,
membership or both!” We’ve found this to be true in Texas and there’s
documentation that many PETA persons have moved over to Humane Society of
the U.S. (HSUS) over the years. So this article below is right on target.
It’s encouraging to see that we have support from many other animal interest
groups. The vegan “extremists” are the real animal “exploiters” for
fundraising purposes — high salaries, retirement and insurance benefits and
the almighty “power.” While claiming to be addressing animal cruelty —
their goal is really “abolition.” Anyone who sits down at the table to
negotiate with HSUS is really “on” the table. For proof, just follow their
By the way, Governor Chris Christi VETOED the HSUS bill prohibiting
gestation crates used by the pork industry! A change is in the wind.

Like the old adage suggests, don’t listen to what the Humane Society of the
United States tells you about being ‘reformers, not extremists.’
Instead, watch what they do.
Over the years, I’ve heard all manner of staff people at the Humane Society
of the United States – including CEO Wayne Pacelle – insist over and over
that “We’re not like PETA. They’re extremists. We’re reformers.”
That’s the argument I’ve heard more times than I can count, offered as
evidence that producers shouldn’t attack HSUS; instead, they should work
with them on the changes the groups wants to see adopted.
The coda to that assertion is a short list of “reforms” HSUS wants to see
implemented, the notion being that the group just want to make the industry
a little kinder and gentler, and that they’re far too professional and
sophisticated to pull the “outrageous” stunts that are all that PETA ever
Really? Consider this news story from the Daily Record in New Jersey:
“The push to convince Gov. Chris Christie to approve a law prohibiting
gestation crates used by the pork industry is coming to the governor’s home
base of Morris County on Saturday as the Humane Society of the United States
‘Great Crate Challenge’ arrives in Madison.”
Then check out the photo below, showing the stunt cage HSUS operatives will
What’s the difference from what PETA does, with people locked in cages and
wrapped in plastic to demonize producers?….
I hope everyone is enjoying the season and able to afford that holiday ham or turkey and still a few presents under the tree. Please don’t forget Rover and with so many recipes circulating over the internet for doggie bones-just go ahead and make him some-throw them in a jar with the recipe you used for future reference-Wondering what to get for a friend and don’t have a lot of money to spend-Then make some of those for your friends dog-they will love it that you gave them something for Rover!!! Skip buying something-Make him a treat-He’ll like that even more!!!-and I don’t imagine your dog will care if you burn them, LOL!!!
The following recipe has ingredients you likely have in your pantry:
- cooking spray
- 2 cups flour, plus more for dusting
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 cup water and chicken base or chicken broth
- 1 cup peanut butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
Mix the dry ingredients and then add the water (premix with the chicken base) and peanut butter and mix until the mixture forms a dough.
Press the dough together to form a ball.
On a lightly floured work surface, knead the dough for about a minute or until smooth. Roll out the dough about 1/2-inch thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut out the ‘bones’ and place on the prepared baking sheet (any scraps of dough can be formed into a ball and re-rolled). Any shape cookie cutter can be used or cut into rectangles-your dog just doesn’t care. Optional-Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
Bake until golden, about 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Store in an airtight container-can be refrigerated but they won’t last long-If giving as a gift be sure to include the recipe for more!!!
Here’s an extremely healthy recipe from Martha Stewart: http://www.marthastewart.com/264802/homemade-dog-biscuits
Makes about 5 dozen
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup brewer’s yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup low-sodium canned chicken stock, plus more for brushing
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, wheat germ, yeast, and salt; set aside
2. Place oil in a large bowl. Add stock and flour mixture in three alternating batches, beginning and ending with stock. Mix well.
3. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to about 3/8-inch thick. Shape biscuits using a dog-bone-shaped cookie cutter or by cutting around a store-bought dog bone with a butter knife.(Make biscuits that are appropriate for your dog’s size.)
4. If desired, you can spell out your dog’s name or a holiday message in the dough with a toothpick (wet the toothpick first so it won’t stick).
5. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
6. Bake biscuits 10 minutes. Brush with stock; rotate baking sheets, and bake 10 minutes more. Turn off oven, leaving door closed. Let dog biscuits stand in oven to dry completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Wrap as a gift, or store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Whether you use wheat flour or all purpose is up to you on these recipes-it doesn’t change the flavor. I kind of like the Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top as it gives them a really nice color without the additional work but keep an eye on them.
