Homemade Frosty Paws-"Pawsicles" for Dogs!

I think all of you have heard me brag sufficiently on Baby Ruth.  She is the highlight of my every day.  Especially after my car wreck, when I couldn't walk for months and months, she was my constant companion.  Sometimes I call Mr. Devilish Dish at work, and he gives me the brush-off saying, "I can't talk, I have a meeting with a client."  And I usually reply, "Oh yeah?  Well I have a meeting with a client too."  And by meeting I mean laying on the couch.  And by client I mean Baby Ruth.  She's my 70-pound princess, and the source of my daily entertainment, especially now that Little Devil is away at college.  One of the funny things about Baby Ruth is even though she's a BIG DOG, she likes the dog food with "little bites."  It's one of the things that leads me to believe she's a little tiny lap dog on the inside.  Anyway, the last time she was out of dog food, her dad accidentally bought a new variety of her food.  The package read, "Specially formulated for big dogs that prefer small bites."  In other words missy, you weren't fooling anybody by eating more with your three cups of small bites versus three cups of large bites.  Hill's Science Diet is onto you.  And so we fed the princess the new special formula.  And you know what?  An hour after dinner she went and sat by her empty bowl and stared at us with the most pitiful, sad hound-dog eyes you've ever seen.  Basically, "specially formulated for big dogs that prefer small bites" is a kind of way of saying, "your dog is a fatty boom batty and this is diet dog food."  And Baby Ruth wasn't having any of it.  AND SO, to make a LONG story SHORT, I whipped up some Homemade Frosty Paws.  That way she can have a little dessert after her small-bite dinner fiasco.  And maybe she won't go to bed hungry!    
Because sometimes our furry friends
need dessert too!
Forgot the honey.
