Well, the dogs were over the moon with their Pawsome Box… It contained a tug rope with a ball, which kept them both occupied for a couple of days, and was the first item that Flake removed from the box!
There was another toy too – a pink squeaky pig, which was very soft rubber and rather cute. We gave that to Ambs for her kitten, Mr Pies. Our dogs’ jaws are too strong for this cute piggy and I’m sure they’d have eaten the squeaker too!
Zeus often gets “itchy ears” and we had to take him to the Vet’s with a couple of ear infections, so I was very pleasantly surprised to find a bottle of Ear Cleaner liquid in the box – that will come in very handy indeed! Every other week we clean out his ears to keep them free from infection, so this is a godsend.
The little red item with a black cross in the centre is a very clever poo-bag dispenser with a plastic clip on it for bagging “doodies” when you’re out walking – another little treasure. The dogs also enjoyed the “Fresh Breath Rolls” – yummy, was the verdict! I like the cheesy chicken strips too – they’re thin and chewy, can’t be swallowed whole, which is always a bonus if you have greedy dogs – and Staffies are notoriously greedy!! Ours will do anything for a treat, literally, but go deaf on “commands”!
Flake and Zeus were really tired after lunch, all thanks to the excitement of a visit from Ambs and the Pawsome Box arriving, but they did allow time for a few photos!! This is loving girl, Flake… and next, Zeus with his Happy Face on!!
I’ve been baking for them too and will share some more photos and recipes in the next few days. Although the wind is cold, the advent of more sunny mornings makes it plain that Spring is here and that means spring-cleaning, decluttering and preparing the garden for container growing of salad and herbs. I’m comping madly to win enough to pave the stony area and replace the rotting decking. Wish me luck! 🙂
