I guess I have to start out by saying that I have wanted a puppy for YEARS. It was something that as soon as my husband and I started seriously dating, I seriously started talking about getting a dog. You see, my Dad is allergic to dogs and cats, so growing up I envied my friends with four legged furry pets, and always envionsed that one day I would have a dog of my own. My husband also didn't grow up with pets either... but he was much, much more apprehensive about the whole "getting a dog thing".
Four years later, I finally caught my husband in a weak moment backed up with lots of nerdy spreadsheets that contained research about different breeds and costs associated with owning a pup. (Finance guys love spreadsheets). But since we got our puppy our lives have dramatically changed for the better and we both agree that getting Charlie was the best thing we've ever done!

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
1/4 cup corn meal
1/4 cup low-fat cheddar cheese (I used Kraft)
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling
3/4 cup water
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl stir together the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, and corn meal. Add in the cheddar and parmesan cheese. Lastly add the egg and water. Knead the dough until the ingredients are well combined.
Take half of the dough and place on a floured surface. Roll out to a 1/4" thickness and use your favorite cookie cutter to make each treat. Place on a sheet pan and bake until golden for 25-30 minutes.
I hope your dog loves these as much as ours does! Nothing like spoiling your puppy silly... I mean he deserves it, right?
