Halloween Hounds

Don’t forget your furry friends for trick-or-treating fun

We love dressing up as honeybees for Halloween, and fellow trick-or-treaters in the neighborhood are always impressed with our costumes. You might say they create quite a buzz …

Dad jokes aside, we do enjoy celebrating our favorite insect during Halloween season. And we like to get our four-legged friends in on the fun, too. We even dress them up – as bees, of course!

You can find all sorts of honeybee costumes for pets online. We found the one pictured below on Amazon. With one- and two-day shipping, there’s still plenty of time to have a bee costume for your pooch delivered for Halloween. You can order the one we got for our pup HERE.

Treats for doggies

Whether you celebrate Halloween at home this year or venture out into your neighborhood, your furry family members can join in on the fun. But when it comes to the treats, we certainly don’t want our pups to eat the same Halloween candy that humans eat – especially chocolates. So we bake up a batch of homemade doggy treats just for them.

Our Sue Bee® Pumpkin & Peanut Butter Pup Treats are fun to make and dogs love them. (Probably because Sue Bee® honey is one of the ingredients!)

We use fun, Halloween-themed cookie molds with these quick and easy-to-make treats. Here’s how:

1 tbsp Sue Bee® honey

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

2 medium eggs

2 tbsp creamy peanut butter

½ cup canned pumpkin

Pinch of salt

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon


Blend ingredients in large mixing bowl. To help make the dough more workable, you can add small amounts of water as you mix. The dough should be dry and stiff, but moldable. 

Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

Roll dough into a half-inch-thick layer, use the Halloween cookie molds to cut into pieces and place on a baking pan. Put the pan in the oven and bake about 40 minutes until the treats are hard.

Remove from oven and let cool. Now it’s time for your pup to enjoy!
