Dog biscuits are a common sight in dog owners' pantries. Yet these protein-packed cookies were originally created by accident.

Legend has it that a London butcher in the late 1800s was attempting to make a new biscuit recipe for his human customers. He tasted his creation, disliked it, and promptly threw it to his dog.

The dog loved it, and it gave the butcher the idea of marketing a biscuit just for dogs. He made it in the shape of a bone, and they began to sell. In 1908, the idea was introduced to the United States.

Dog biscuits are often formed in the shape of a bone - a rod with two knobs at each end. Milk-bone is a popular brand name, and for many years it was the only producer of commercial dog treats.

Others are iced and decorated like fancy cookies. Don't be fooled, however - these cookies are meat flavored, not sweet. Some people even make homemade dog biscuits.
