Happy National Puppy Day: Celebrating with Sweetie Bear’s Special Risotto!

It’s National Puppy Day this weekend.. and who better to celebrate with than our furry best friends? This year, I’m especially excited because it’s my first National Puppy Day with my adorable rescue pup, Sweetie Bear (thanks for the perfect name, Sofia and Elena!). Here’s Sweetie with her best friend Jep!

Sweetie Bear is a cherished member of the family, so of course, she deserves a special treat! Here’s a recipe I whipped up for her – a delicious and healthy chicken and zucchini risotto. It’s perfect for a picnic (like the one we’re having for Memorial Day!), as it can be served chilled.

Important Note: This recipe can also supplement your pup’s regular r used as a topper. It’s important for their overall health to get the proper nutrients from their food.

Sweetie Bear’s National Puppy Day Risotto


  • 1/4 pound cooked, chopped chicken breast (boil the chicken, then chop into small pieces)
  • 1 small zucchini, cut into small pieces and boiled until soft
  • 1/2 cup cooked white rice


  1. Once the chicken is cooked and cooled, chop it into small pieces.
  2. Drain the zucchini and combine it with the chopped chicken and cooked rice in a small bowl.
  3. Let the mixture cool completely before serving to your pup.

This recipe makes multiple servings, depending on the size and age of your dog.

Happy National Puppy Day to all the amazing pups out there!
