A Most Wonderful Treat

Hi Everybody,
Mom says I have to give the blog back to her, so I decided to write one more post before she locks the office door and covers the keyboard. 

First before I tell you the treat news, I want to tell you about an old friend of ours who isn't feeling well. Maybe you can all stop by and say hi. That would cheer him up. Zeus is one of the Lapdogs and we've been friends for a long time. 
Over the past year he's been having some health problems but he's a big tough guy and he kept rolling. Now though he has a bad thing, he has vestibular syndrome. It means he feels dizzy every time he moves and that makes him feel sick in his tummy. The doctor gave him some medicine and says he has to rest. We've known several Water Dogs that have had this syndrome and it isn't any fun for them or their peeps but they have all gotten better.

Now about that wonderful treat. Noah and I are both on special diets because of our sick tummies. Mom makes Noah's food and I eat a special kibble made of duck and sweet potatoes. We both like our new food a lot and Noah has even gained two more pounds. The problem is that we can only have sweet potato chips for treats. Don't get me wrong, they taste great and we like them, but we always get sweet potato chips while all the other dogs get a whole medley of good treats that Mom keeps up high on the shelf. That's so that Bailey can't reach them and help herself.

Last week Mr Andrew notified Mom of this months selection of treats for our review. One of them was  Smooches made by The Honest Kitchen. We laughed about this because we wondered if there's a company called The Dishonest Kitchen. That's a little dog humor there.

Mom wasn't familiar with Smooches, at least the biscuit kind. We all give her smooches all the time. She did some online research and found out that Smooches were made in the USA of good ingredients like chicken and cranberries. We like chicken and cranberries but that meant that Noah and I couldn't try them.

But then something else caught her eye. The same Honest Kitchen company makes treats called Nuzzles and they're made from duck and cherries. Mom told Mr Andrew about our tummy problems and asked if he could substitute Nuzzles for Smooches.

Here comes the good part of the story. The big truck man came a couple days ago and handed Mom a package. Inside was a box of Nuzzles. We could hardly wait for Dad to open them. Mom said we could each have one to try but the rest of the box is for just Noah and me. Believe me, Nuzzles are delicious and make a great change from our chips.

Here's Sebastian demonstrating how we all have our paws crossed for Zeus to get better soon. Being ditzy is fun but being dizzy is awful.
Your pal, Fudge

Mr. Andrew is wonderful to send you great treats like that! I'm so glad you are dealing with the Honest Kitchen, not the Dishonest Kitchen (I thought of that, too).

Mr. Andrew is wonderful about substitutions, isn't he? We've also wondered about the name the Honest Kitchen. We need honest, full disclosure with Sissy's allergies!

We have crossed paws for Zeus too.
