During her lunch break yesterday, mom took me on a quick obedience walk to work on my anxiety problem and my manners. We strolled down to the Place of Treats and Toys and picked up some Companion Natural Pet Food freeze-dried salmon treats. They are a little cork-like and a little spongy, and they are mighty mighty tasty. There's nothing in them but salmon so they're like the transportable version of my raw feasts. They look like this:They make me smile like this:
They smell so strongly like fishy goodness that my eyes bugged out when mom first opened the package. She broke some up into training-sized bits and gave Pupi and me taste tests.
Holy fishies. These were SO GOOD. I became possessed by the feast and actually barked at mom for more... a big Naughty in our home. Pupi was sitting nicely and so he got another treat, and when I witnessed this favoritism there was only one thing that I knew I had to do: copy him. Totally worth it. Scored another bit of deliciousness.
On the website for the treat, mom came across a picture of their freeze dried green tripe snack patties. Ooohooo! Gotta get me some of those! But mom said No because those salmon treats made her hands stink like fish all day, and she doesn't even want to imagine what the tripe treats would do. This confused me. Why not use them as perfume? She'd be the most popular human at the bark park!
If you get anything dehydrated, mom warns against feeding too much in one go. On the web page for the tripe, it says that 4 oz of the freeze dried stuff is equal to 1 lb of the real thing. This stuff expands when in water... and stomach juices. Big Pupi and our pal Fenway learned this the hard way when feasting on some dehydrated liver treats during agility class. Oops. Despite what the side effects may be, it sure sounds tasty to me!
