Summer Time Dessert--People and Pet Friendly

The berries are ripe for the picking! Take advantage of nature's summer harvest with the following dessert for people and pets. You can use homemade or store bought pound cake (Sara Lee frozen ones are decadent) or even substitute angel food cake (a little lighter), or sugar cookies or even whole wheat toast.

Go easy on the sweetener in the cake and start out with one type of berries just to make sure your dog can tolerate them. It really is a variation on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, only using fresh fruit!
