Parsley Kisses - Homemade Dog Cookies

"Parsley is a palate cleanser, hence no more doggie breath! Well, no guarantees but dogs love parsley, in case you don't know. Just look at what they did to my herb garden - well - that's another story. Parsley is high in vitamins A & C and can aid in digestion. They smell really good when cooking, but they are strictly for Fido or Fifi."
