I just made the sardine & parsley treats. I'm mixing them up and they are so dry I can't get them to form balls for anything, they just kept crumbling, so I added the water from the sardine can. Still crumbly I added a little bit of water, mixed, added a little more until I could finally mix it together with my hands.
