Wordless Wednesday #12

Lately we’ve taken to giving a treat or two to the pups while they cool off and grab a drink of water after our walks and before we go home.

If you want to know what we use as treats, it is freeze-dried beef liver, which we affectionately call ‘puppy crack’.After Walk TreatsPutt-Putts TurnWillows TurnChloes TurnHanksters Turn

      They actually all watched me bring the treats out of the truck, the only reason Putt-Putt and Willow weren’t watching me and the treats in some of these photos was a jogger had come up from the road behind us and watched us feed the pups.

      Since they all know the treats come in turns, while they were waiting for their next turn they watched the jogger watching them politely taking their treats. He (the jogger) was amazed and commented on how they actually waited and took turns without squabbling.

      Actually, just on our way back from one. The street we live on isn’t that long, so we take them into town (we live in the county just a half mile from the city limits) and walk them on the cities Greenway, which the total length of the loop is something like 9 miles (the most we’ve managed is 4 miles and that was when we had a steady walking regime), and they are still adding to it.

      Between these treats, and the jerky we buy from our local farmers market, they’ve become spoiled. Willow in particular, if she gets any other type of treat she’ll take it gently with this ‘eeww’ face then set it down on the ground to see if you’ll give her something else, she’ll only eat it if you refuse to give her anything else.

    We get raw liver and I microwave it. It stinks to high heaven, but the doggies love it. We also buy the Texas Hold ‘Em brand dried lamb lung. It’s a big hit, too.

      Haven’t tried any other offal, or raw foods/treats for that matter. I can only imagine the smell, it would drive our pups CRAZY! lol

    There’s nothing better than a high-value treat. Sage just finished some goat cheese ones that were mighty tasty.

    Ooooo! That does sound like puppy crack! Look how attentive they are! Have you tried lamb lung? That’s puppy crack, too.

      Thank you! They really do like them, they will be willing to do pretty much anything we ask for them.

      Ooh apples! Hank, Putt-Putt, and Chloe will eat apples no problem, especially if they see us eating them. Willow will only eat apples if I’ve bit it first, and gave her a piece without any skin on it.
