Treats that the whole family err fur family can enjoy

I cannot believe it is already March! February just flew on by. It seems like only yesterday, we were talking about keeping our chompers healthy during Pet Dental month and now it is almost St. Patrick’s Day. I already have my bandanna on. Some hoomans like to eat corn beef and cabbage to celebrate the holiday, I just want snacks.

This month there were lots of snacks to choose from. I wanted to go with a very limited ingredient treat this time around. So limited that it actually only has one ingredient! We, meaning I picked out Primal Beef Liver Munchies. (click on the purple link to be taken directly to the Chewy site for these treats) It contains Beef Liver. It contains zero spices or flavorings, preservatives, grains, salt, or sugar. Nothing but beef liver. Sometimes you just want a simple treat and with Primal Beef Liver Munchies, you get exactly that.

Primal treats are a very good source of protein. The bag indicates a min of  66% protein, that is a lot of protein. There is not a per treat calorie count, but the website indicates 130 calories per ounce and each bag weighs two ounces. There are a lot of treats in the bag. Mom figures under 10 calories per piece.

They are made from beef sourced in the USA, which is a total plus for us.  We prefer to buy stuff made where we live. The beef is free from antibiotics without any added hormones. That is something we really like.

The treats are bite sized and they are for cats and dogs! So my brothers can partake in some tasty goodness as well. You can see the both of us investigating the treats and seeing if it is something we might want to try. Spoiler alert, we tried and liked them!

They come in all sorts of sizes, so that the tiny ones can go to the kitties and the bigger pieces can go right into my tummy.

These treats are  freeze dried, but more importantly they are raw, so after your human gives you one or maybe ten if you are super lucky, make sure they wash their hands with soap and hot water.

Onward to the pros and cons from the three of us.

Mom says she loves that they are a single source of protein and they are good for both cats and dogs. One bag of treats can be given to all of us. She wishes that calorie count per treat was on the bag, but understands that the different sized pieces can make that determination difficult.

Icky kitty ate three of them in a row and would like them to be a little smaller. Even the small ones are a little big for his little mouth. He did not throw them back up like he does with most treats. So we know that he likes them and his sensitive tummy can handle them. (Sam kitty and Baby kitty are not fans of treats at all, so they were not included in the taste test)

I was very happy with these treats. I love raw treats. They are always super tasty. They usually contain just meat, so that is always a plus with me. I was not thrilled that I can share them with my brother. He should get his own treats!

The three of us all give paws and thumbs up. 8 paws for icky kitty and I and 2 thumbs up for mom.

Primal treats are welcome in this house, because they are quality treats and made in the USA. The raw liver munchies also come in turkey and pork. You can try all three and see which one you like best. You can see all Primal items that Chewy carries by clicking here.

A Chewy a Day Keeps the Tarter Away

This month is pet dental month. Just like hoomans, us dogs and cats need to keep our teeth healthy. Problems with teeth can lead to health issues, stinky breath, loss of teeth, and pain because bad teeth can make it hard to eat our food. Icky kitty is 14 and he just had his teeth cleaned. The vet said he is looking pretty good for a cat that old. No teeth had to be pulled, but they did reccommend brushing his teeth to keep them clean.

My chompers are looking pretty good for a five year old pup. Last vet visit, I was told a teeth cleaning was not needed for me. I bet you wonder how in the heck I do it? Well I get a chewy everyday to help keep my chompers looking good and breath smelling fresh.

Since it is dental month, lots of different dental options were offered to test out. I do have my normal chew that I get daily, but mom decided we could try out a different one in case it was better and I preferred it over the other.

The dental chew we tested out was Greenies, which is  a well known dental chew. We felt that it was a brand we could trust. We all know that when it comes to me and stuff that goes in my tummy, my hoomans become complete weirdos. So my regular dental chews were put up for a bit and we went with the Greenies.

img_1951

Before my hoomans switched to dental chews, they did try their best to use a toothbrush to clean my chompers, however I am known as a PITA,  so they looked for other options to help clean my teeth. They tried a dental cleaning liquid that was added to my drinking water. I started drinking less water when they added it to my bowl. It is very important that we get plenty of water, so that idea got nixed. They finally decided to try out dental chews. I have tied out various ones, but we are always on the lookout for a better one that I enjoy as well. Calorie count is always figured in when choosing a chew to add into my daily rotation.

Greenies is recommended by vets and it helps remove plaque and tarter buildup faster than a toothbrush can. There are many different varieties for us to chomp on. They also are easy to digest. When you look at them, the first thought might be, am I eating a toothbrush? It looks just like one!

img_1954

So now on to what happened after I tested Greenies out. I did think they tasted okay. If I am not liking they way something tastes, I will spit it out and walk away. The chew did take longer to eat than my normal chew which is a good thing. Longer lasting chews mean more time that it is helping to remove plaque and tarter. I was able to easily break it up into pieces without too much trouble.

The next day, I was offered another Greenies chew and happily took it from mom. That pretty much is my seal of approval. I would happily eat these chews as an alternative to my usual one. They were tasty and I liked that they lasted longer.

Mom has to put her two cents in though. She has her likes and dislikes. First she likes that it takes me longer to chew. My usual one is a little bit smaller, I can break it up into smaller pieces much faster. She also says they are less stinky than my usual chews. When you open the bag of my usual chews, this wonderful smell pours from the bag. Mom says there are a lot of other words to describe it, none of which are wonderful. She likes that they come in different varieties. They have a weight management chew for dogs that are older and not moving as much or dogs that are dieting. They have grain free treats, hip and joint,  mint flavored ones, and ones that are blueberry flavored.

Of course mom has to find the one negative thing that makes it difficult for her to choose this chew for me as a replacement for my daily chew. The calorie count. The  chews for large dogs are 152 calories a piece. We all know by now that my treat calorie limit is 80 calories. That is almost double the amount for my treat allotment. The small regular chew is 95 calories, still over the limit. We might switch to the regular chew and use it sparingly. I really like these treats and mom feels that they are working. My breath is not that stinky and my teeth are looking pretty. Mom is thinking that the best way to still get the benefits of Greenies, but not destroying the diet, would be to use Greenies a couple times per week and my regular chews the other days. I would only be getting 30 extra calories instead of 105 extra calories. It is a win win situation. Mom still gets to be strict on my diet and I get to have a tasty chew that is helping me have pretty chompers.

So our final verdict is 3 paws up. One paw removed because of the high calorie content. That is only because of my silly diet. It truly deserves four paws, but my small weight issue prevents it from completely replacing my current chew.

Wobbling fun

I really love eating and sometimes when I eat, I tend to scarf it down so fast that I get threatened with a slow bowl. Slow bowls are weird contraptions that force me to slow down so I can have a proper meal without getting sick. The slow bowls are kind of annoying. It takes me forever to eat. This month, we saw that we could try out this Kong toy that wobbles back and forth. It dispenses treats or food. Mom figured it would be a fun way to have me eat.

img_1945

The Kong Wobbler has a weighted bottom and wobbles to and fro. If I smack it down, it just goes right back to standing up tall. If I hit it just right, food/treats fall out. It is amazing! The large Wobbler holds a cup of food. Perfect for me since right now  I am fed 3/4 cup twice a day.

First off mom showed me the bag of treats and then put some of  them in the Wobbler. She set it on the ground, then let me investigate. I sniffed it and realized that it had some yummy smelling stuff in there. I smacked it a few times and realized it moved around.

img_1980

img_1990

No matter how many times I knocked it down, it just got right back up again. I kept hitting it, then saw treats fall out. I gobbled them up and then kept smacking it until I knew that it was empty. Once it was empty I lost interest.

img_1987

I really liked this toy. I got treats and was able to get a little exercise. Working off the treats while I eat. I like that concept. I did get a little mad when I hit it enough times it got up against a wall and I could not get it to move away from there. Once mom moved it away from the wall, I was back in business.

The next time she let me use it, she filled it with my nightly ration of food. It took a very long time to eat dinner, but I had fun while eating, so I did not mind too much. I just kept smacking it around until no more crunchies were rolling around in the  Wobbler. I preferred this over my slow bowls. It added an element of fun to meal time instead of a lot of frustration.

On to some technical stuff. It has a weighed base, so it is pretty heavy. Mom has yet to see me lift it up and try to throw it down the stairs which I do to most of my other treat dispensers.It seems to be made of pretty strong material. The top screws off so it can be refilled. It is dishwasher safe, but has to go on the top shelf. This is not a chew toy, so make sure you are watching when we have Wobbler time.

Mom gives this two thumbs up and I give this four paws up. This is a treat/meal dispenser that I would recommend to anyone who wants some fun while eating or needs to slow a pup down who is a speed eater.

You can watch the Kong Wobbler in action on my  Instagram page here

The Kong Wobbler can be found here There are two different sizes. Small for dogs up to 25 lbs and large for dogs over 25 lbs.

Meat free can be pretty tasty!

You did not actually think I would allow the cats all the tasty goodness this month did you? I noticed that there were many other dog options to test out. Those stinky cats trying to trick me by saying it was cat only stuff to test out. You can teach us tricks, but you certainly aren’t going to trick us.

Icky kitty aka Bater likes two brands of food to eat. One of those brands is called Halo. I noticed that this month, Halo dog treats was one of the things we could test out. They are called Halo Healthsome. They are also vegetarian treats!  That means that the treats contain zero meat. Now I know I have gone on and on about how I am a descendant of the mighty wolf and I need my meat. Well that is very true, but this is a treat. Totally different rules apply when it comes to treats. Food = meat, treats = whatever is good and tasty, but also healthy.

img_1841

These are crunchy biscuit treats that contain peanut and pumpkin.They also have lots of other veggies. The complete ingredient list is as follows: Potato Flour, Ground Peanuts, Tapioca Flour, Ground Peas, Canola Oil, Pumpkin, Tomatoes, Apples, Sweet Potatoes, Cranberries, Carrots, Split Peas, Broccoli, Parsley, and Ascorbic Acid (a Preservative).

We like that these treats have ingredients that you can actually pronounce with ease and can find most of those ingredients in the produce section at the grocery store. Even though peas are in the list twice, they make it so you cannot actually tell that peas are inside. It is trickery, but tasty trickery.

img_1846

The treats are pretty big. They are 27 kcals a piece. Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while now, know that I am on a stupid diet. My treats are limited to 80 calories a day. My dental chew takes up 40 of that, so only 40 calories left for my treats. I can have one of these with my dental chew and still have calories left for a couple training treats. A girl that has to watch her calorie intake will indeed make sure that she gets the max amount of treats allowed.

img_1849

Now that we got all the stuff about calories and ingredients out of the way, you probably are wondering what I thought about these meatless crunchy treats? I loved them! They are super crunchy and tasty. I licked them and crunched them, and made sure I licked up all the pieces that fell. I even got to have three whole treats! It was for testing purposes, so that one extra calorie is okay. I tried to get one more treat from mom, but that was not  happening. She said I had enough and would have to wait until the next day to get one more.

Mom says the treats smell just fine. They are not stinky at all. She is weird like that. She smells all my treats. She said they smell like people food. Duh! It is made from people food. She wishes that they were less calories, but they can easily be broken in half to cut down on the amount of calories.

So mom and I are both happy with these yummy vegetarian treats! I give them 4 paws up. If you would like to learn more about Halo Healthsome Treats then you should totally click here

This one is for the fishes

Hi! I am your guest blogger today. My name is Sam, also known as Sammy, Samuel, old yellow, and yellow kitty. I am Lily’s feline brother. Actually there are three of us! Baby and Bater are my two other feline brothers. This month we decided that it was time for us to test something out. We are not big on eating treats, so when we saw food being offered, we pounced at the chance to put some food to the test.

We are some picky kitties. Really picky eaters. One day we will like one type of can food, then the next day we will turn our tiny pink noses up at it. Baby and I are the can food eaters, Bater just likes to have a nibble here and there. He is all about the crunchy food.

The can food we got to test out is Tiki Cat. We have tried Tiki cat before, but this one is all seafood. Now remember when I said we are picky eaters? Well that includes most seafood. So mom was skeptical, but knew that we were Tiki Cat fans. She says it is her go to food when we refuse to eat anything at all. She pops open a can and suddenly we have an appetite. We just like the really good stuff!

img_1787

That is Bater, he insisted on being the model. This variety pack includes the following flavors: Ahi Tuna, Sardine Cutlets, Tuna in Crab Surimi Consommé, Mackerel and Sardines in Calamari Consommé, Sardine Cutlets in Lobster Consommé, and Ahi Tuna with Crab in Tuna Consommé. WOW! That is so many different types of seafood.  We were ready to try some new types of food. After some loud meowing, she put a can down and let us see what we thought.

The first one we tried was the Ahi Tuna with Crab. It was delicious! Even the supposed hater of wet food joined in. That is really saying something.

img_1788

img_1811

The next day we got to try the Sardine Cutlets in Lobster Consommé. This one we had mixed reviews on. We liked the lobster part, but the sardines we did not like very much. In fact, that stinky dog ate them!

Next up was Ahi Tuna, which we thought was very good. Day by day, we got to try all the other flavors and it seems that all round we love everything but the sardines. We are just not fans of them. Just like out canine sister who hates peas, we just hate sardines.

Tiki Cat is high in protein, but low in fat. So that means we can keep fit while enjoying some very fancy food. It is also made from human grade ingredients. The quality of the seafood is so high, that it is certified for human consumption. Not that my mom would, she is not a fan of seafood.  Mom did not like the smell of them at all, but we thought they smelled very good. She does not know what she is missing.

We give this 3 paws up because of out dislike of the sardines. Don’t let that stop you from trying this food out. Tiki Cat is very tasty. To get more information on our variety pack visit Chewy.com

Chewy has lots of great products for all of your furry friends! you can visit their site here and see what they have to offer!

Keeping it raw and tasty.

Christmas has come and gone. It was a pretty good holiday for me this year. I got to spend extra days with my hoomans, eat some table scraps (My diet is still happening. I heard that dogs need the extra padding during the winter, so an extra bite here or there cannot hurt me too much.), got new toys, and sent some cool bandanas that mom made to the shelter I came from. Winter in the Midwest generally means we get to freeze for a few months, before busting out the extra water bowls and start wishing it was winter again.

Speaking of things that are frozen, my favorite food has freeze dried raw pieces of chicken in the bag. Right now, I cannot have that yummy food, because of the diet. Raw freeze dried bits of meat is tasty and a nice snack. Mom likened my love of the raw bits to a kid eating all the marshmallows first from a bowl of cereal. I pick out all the raw bits first, then eat the kibble.

This month we had quite a few options to choose from to test out. One in particular caught my eye! it was a freeze dried raw treat. Choosing that one to test out this month was a no brainer.

This months selection is from a company called Stewart Pro-Treat. They make lots of different freeze dried treats and even treats for ferrets! They are made in the USA, which works for us. There are only a few countries that we trust to get our treats from, the USA of course is one of them.

img_1604

They are called Stewart Pro-Treat Raw Naturals Real Beef with Berries and Flaxseed.

The ingredients are  Beef, beef hearts, beef liver, ground beef bone, broccoli, carrots, romaine lettuce, beef kidneys, apples, flaxseed, salmon oil, apple cider vinegar, blueberries, cranberries, inulin, dried kelp meal, potassium chloride, sodium chloride, dried dried ginger, dried parsley, dried garlic, zinc proteinate, iron proteinate, copper proteinate, manganese proteinate, mixed tocopherols (a preservative), rosemary extract, Vitamin E supplement, Vitamin D supplement.

img_1607

There are more ingredients then we usually like in a treat, but there are lots of good stuff that has been added to make them a healthy treat. The first four ingredients are all beef! They are pretty serious about making sure they have beef inside. They of course have to make sure I get my fruits and veggies. I am happy to see that peas are not listed. (down with peas)

img_1609The ones I tested are perfect size for me. They are not too big or too small. They could work as training treats for dogs my size or bigger. Each treat contains 8 kcals. It is more then my 5 kcal limit, but I am testing them out, so we can bend the rules a bit. I liked these from the moment they passed my cute doggy lips. I ate all three of those treats in seconds.

Stewart Pro-Treat only uses the best human grade ingredients. Just because they use human grade ingredients, does not mean you can have some. These are just for us canines. They freeze dry all the ingredients just at the right time to maximize the nutritional goodness.

I though they were super tasty and was trying to get my nose in the bag to get more. They get 4 paws up. I hope to try more from Stewart Pro-Treat. If all their treats taste this good, then they can certainly be put in the treat rotation. If you want to buy some of these tasty treats, then follow this link.

You can find other Stewart Pro-Treat products and lots of other great products at  Chewy.com

As always, you can watch a video here of me snacking on the yummy goodness.

 

Remember hoomans, treats are exactly that. They should not make up more than 10% of our daily calorie intake and we should always have fresh water around. Also, since these are raw treats, it might be a good idea to wash the hands after handling them.

Crunchy on the Outside, Beefy on the Inside

Thanksgiving is just days away and soon it will be all about the turkey, but today we talk beef! This month I decided to stick with what I knew and I know that Wellness makes some pretty good treats. We have reviewed a few of their products and have not been let down. This month was no different. I got to try out Wellness Core Grain Free Marrow Roasts. They are crunchy biscuits that have real meaty marrow inside. They are only 11 calories a piece for the Hearty Beef Recipe. The Turkey recipe is 11 calories as well.

img_1392

The marrow roasts treats are grain free, contain no by products, and list the meat protein as the first ingredient. That is very important to us. Carnivores want meat. We cannot stress enough how important it is when choosing food and treats that meat is listed first. If I wanted some veggies,  I would hit up the salad bar. It does list peas and sweet potatoes as other ingredients. I suppose that is okay since I cannot actually see any of the veggies. Down with peas! I have a huge hatred of peas, but since I cannot see them, I deal.

img_1397

As you can see the treats are not very big, so they could work for many different sized pups. I was very excited when mom held out her hand and could barely sit still while she snapped a few pictures. I wasted little time scarfing down these tasty morsels. This is probably the first time that we can recall that my treat contained marrow. I have very picky hoomans and they will not let me have just anything without researching first that it is okay for me and that the product was made in a country that has deemed acceptable to them. These treats were made right here in the U S of A.

img_1398

I am not quite sure you can see the look of intensity that is on my face. I am in full on give me my treat mode. I did indeed gobble them up like they were the last treats on earth. If I am unsure about a treat, I will drop it and lick it a few times before I pick it back up and eat it. I did not do that at all with this treat. I immediately got to chewing and swallowing and looking at mom with my best head tilt for another treat or five! I give these four paws up and hope that the Savory Turkey Recipe finds its way to my tummy in the near future.

The treats are over my 5 calorie limit because of the diet, but because I am extra cute, mom made an exception. (in reality it just means I don’t get as many treats per day because of the higher calorie count)

You can find these treats on Chewy.com as well as a lot of other great Wellness items. Check out Chewy for all your dog and feline needs.

Watch a nifty vine video here of me first trying out the treats.

Good Ole Southern Cooking

Ahh, October is finally here. The month where it finally gets cooler and I can go for lots of walks without getting too hot. Cooler weather means stews, casseroles, and other yummy food to warm the tummy. This month we decided to go with a canned food instead of treats. It seems that at my last vet visit, I was told that I still needed to lose weight. I should be at my 1 year weight and that is 10 lbs lighter. So the diet lives on and treat calorie amounts are being written down so that I do not go over my daily amount of 800 calories. I am allowed up to 80 calories a day of treats. My dental chew alone takes up half that!

Anyways back to the more important stuff, food that I can eat. This month I picked out some yummy Merrick Pet Care food. I love their food, I have yet to find a food from them that I did not enjoy. This months selection did not disappoint. This months choice is called Smothered Comfort. I have to say that I love all the names Merrick comes up with to name the canned food. They all have such fun names.

img_1133

Smothered Comfort lists Chicken as its first ingredient, actually chicken is its first three ingredients! Lots of chicken in this food. It has a whole chicken thigh! Seriously, a whole thigh, now some of you might be a little worried that the bone could hurt our delicate tummy. No worries, the chef cooks the thigh to make the bone all soft and okay for pups. It is seriously the first thing I usually go for when mom sets a can of this stuff down. I like grabbing up the thigh and chomp chomp chomp. It is that delicious. Who wouldn’t want to have visible pieces of meat in their food?

After the super good chicken part, it also has sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, peas, potato, and blueberries. Plus all the vitamins and minerals to keep us healthy. I did not see any of the peas, so that was a good thing. I have a love hate relationship with  peas.  I hate them, but mom loves for me to eat them. It has 380 calories per can. Mom can feed me two cans of this and still have 40 calories left for treats or 1 dental chew. It is also grain free for all those pups who have allergies or sensitivities to grain. As far as i know, I am okay with grain. It is  nice to know if I were to have issues that I have tasty options.

img_1136

img_1140

I am more of a stew kind of pup than pate.  I like and will eat the pate, but I do love lapping up the gravy when given stew type canned foods. Mom likes that she can see the ingredients.She prefers to see the stuff they put in my food.  Seeing the ingredients listed on a can is on thing, but it is another thing when you can spot the blueberries, carrots or the dreaded peas. It makes the hoomans feel a little bit better about what they are feeding us.

As you can see from the pictures, I wasted no time getting my mouth into that tasty goodness. I did not want to stop and pose for pictures, I wanted to just keep on eating, but I was patient until the puparazzi was done and I could eat at my own pace (which is speed of light) I give this four  paws up. It got my “eat it like it is running away”seal of approval. Plus it also received the “going back to the bowl to lick it over and over again to see if I missed a spot” seal of approval.

img_1127

Merrick is a brand we trust to always provide food that is tasty and good for me. They have so many different varieties and are always coming up with something new. They have so many proteins to chose from, I can eat a wide variety and not get bored. You can learn all about their food here or at Chewy.com

Check out me chomping down on Smothered Comfort in my vine video here

As always check out all the great things that Chewy.com has to offer, plus they offer auto ship, no more running out of food. Ask your hoomans first though. They tend to get upset when us pups get a hold of the credit or debit card.

Who is a good pup? I am!

I had so many different things to choose from this month to test out. The kitties had quite the selection as well. In the end,  it was decided that the kitties can wait and I get to test out some tasty treats.

We  decided to test out ZiwiPeak Good-Dog Treats. We had not heard of the company, but a quick read about them ensured that it was a brand we could trust.The Good-Dog treats come in 3 different varieties. Beef, Venison, and Lamb. We were sent the lamb.

img_0721

They contain 95% premium New Zealand meat. That is a lot!!! Seriously, if a treat contains meat, it better contain a lot of meat and not a bunch of filler ingredients. Remember, we are descendants of the mighty wolf. Wolves like meat, not a bunch of things that you need a dictionary to figure out what it is. The treats list 5 ingredients. FIVE! I am pretty sure most hooman treats contain twice that.

We know that my hoomans are pretty picky on what my treats are made with and how many calories they contain. These treats contain 4.5 kcal per treat. Mom prefers my treats be under 5 calories. I am still supposed to lose 4-5 pounds. When I get my bath or nails clipped at the vet, she weighs me.My last two nail clippings, the scale read 52.6 lbs. I am supposed to be 47. The yearly visit is approaching and we shall see what the vet says. I am hoping I get to just stay at 52 lbs. I think it suits me, plus it would mean I get more of those high calorie  treats.

These are a soft jerky treat that can very easily be torn for smaller pups or for training purposes.

img_0725

They smell very yummy to me and mom says they don’t stink. Not sure what actually stinks. I think everything smells delicious.

img_0728

I thought the treats were very delicious. I got to have three in a row! They are nice and chewy. I do love a good crunchy treat, but sometimes, a soft treat hits the spot.

ZiwiPeak Good-Dog treats are grain free, plus they contain parsley which can help cure that awful doggy breath that hoomans complain about. They are also air dried which helps keep the goodness inside the treat.

If you are looking for a soft treat that is low in calories, tasty, grain free, meaty, and friendly to pups young and old, then look no further. Try out a bag of Good-Dog treats!

Supporting local businesses has never been so tasty

One day mom and dad went to buy popcorn from a place that is locally owned and operated. Dad says if a store sells dog stuff, mom will surely seek it out by using the force. Who knew a popcorn place would have treats for me??? They had all kinds of yummy dog treats. I first got to try some Peanut Butter squirrels. They did not contain actual squirrels, but were super tasty. Mom even took a small taste!! Then I got to try some Bacon Cornbread treats. They were super tasty. They are made by a local company called Porter’s Pet Pantry. Buying local supports our local community and that is always a good thing.

They sent mom a bag of their Beef Liver Slivers so I can try it out. I of course had to insist to mom that I need to write a review so my dog friends could hear all about these super tasty treats.

Now you guys know that I can be a bit picky on treats. Sometimes I am a little unsure if I should try it out or not. Well this was not the case with these treats. As soon as mom handed me one and I gently took it from her hand (because you know if I did not, then I would be denied the yumminess) that treat was in my mouth and being crunched, chomped, and sent down into my tummy. I had to ask for another one right away. I had to be sure that the next one would taste just as good. I somehow got her to give me four treats in a row!

Look at that treat! It is huge. They can be broken up pretty easily, so that if you are not a nice big dog like me, you can make tiny treats for those tiny pups that fit in handbags. You can also break them up to use as training treats. I  know lots of commands, but I still need to practice (according to the hands that feed and spoil me).

These Beef Liver Slivers are not stinky at all! I know for a fact that mom had to plug her nose once just to hand me these other treats she got for me. Not these, they smell like the jerky you buy at the store. I caught mom eyeing one. Hoomans, get your own tasty goodness. pfft.

Onwards to my likes and my hoomans likes. I like that they are super tasty and crunchy Mom likes that they  are grain free, locally made, not stinky, that they only contain four ingredients. (Beef Liver, Natural Smoke Flavoring, Citric Acid, and Vitamin E), and she likes that they come in a resealable bag.

If you are looking for a new training treat, good girl/boy treat, something to spice up the ole kibble,  or maybe a good bye treat to distract us when you are leaving to make the money to that buys us stuff. You should totally buy this treat.

I give Porter’s Pet  Pantry Beef Liver Slivers 4 paws up. You can find them on Amazon or you can visit their website Porter’s Pet Pantry which has other treats and toys!

We will definitely be buying these when the bag is empty or almost empty!

Ok, now go buy some!

Remember treats are exactly that, a treat. We still need a balanced diet and of course fresh water.
