Wordless Wednesday: I'm thankful for my toys.

Product Review and Discount: Three Dogs Bakery

I'm happy to introduce Three Dog Bakery. In 1989, three dogs, two guys and one 59 cent biscuit cutter joined forces to create Three Dog Bakery - the world's original bakery for dogs. Thanks to dog lovers everywhere, they have grown from a bare-bones tabletop beginning to one of the nation's leading producers of the best all-natural foods and treats for dogs. 

Here are the products that are in this review: Pooch Smooched, Pup-permint Mocha, and Gingerbread Flavor Biscuit Mix. 

Carob Pooch Smooches 
All Natural Dog Treats 9oz.

Cost: $6.95
Wheat flour, honey, canola oil, carob powder, molasses, baking soda, dried egg product, vanilla powder, citric acid (preservative), mixed tocopherols (preservative). 
When opening the package I noticed a sweet aroma emerging. They use 100% all-natural, dog-friendly carob and bake it slowly in the oven to bring out that sweet aroma. Theses tasty treats are about the size of a fifty cent piece and are in a star shape. The bag is 9 oz and wonderful treat to have on hand if you have one dog or several K9s. 

Cost: $8.99
Wheat flour, honey, canola oil, carob powder, dried whole egg, dried cane molasses, chocolate flavor, vanilla powder, baking soda, carmine powder (color), baking powder, spearmint flavor, citric acid (preservative), mixed tocopherols (preservative)
Great thought was put into this container. It comes in shape of a cafe drink including a protective sleeve. Each 9oz container includes pup-ular carob (dog friendly chocolate) cookies and minty-fresh marshmallow soft baked cookies. Just like the Smooches, this treat also hand a wonderful aroma to them. With two different size cookies it is great for both small and large dogs.  

Gingerbread Biscuit Mix 16oz

Cost: $8.99
Wheat flour, honey, canola oil, carob powder, dried whole egg, dried cane molasses, chocolate flavor, vanilla powder, baking soda, carmine powder (color), baking powder, spearmint flavor, citric acid (preservative), mixed tocopherols (preservative)
This biscuit mix would make a great project for both adults and kids. This is an easy project, all you need to do is add water mix, roll, cut, and bake for 40 minuts and you have fresh dog treats that will make your house smell wonderful! The Gingerbread biscuit mix comes with a bone shape cookie cutter.The box says it makes approximately 40 bone shaped treats, but my mom was able to make 80. (I think she rolled them too thin.) My mom also said she added an extra ingredient, "Love." 

It is finally time for the taste test! 

Spencer gives these product 4 paws up! 

Three Dog Bakery has so many product to chose from and they are reasonably priced. I'm going to make a list for Santa and my mom. Don't tell my fur-iends Abbey, Louie, and Carlie, but they might see some in their stockings as well! 

You can also find these and other products on their WebsiteFacebookTwitterPinterest, or the Blog. You can also find a Bakery near you. 

If you would like to purchase these or other products use the coupon code "SPENCER" and get 10% off regular priced items. Offer is good through December 31, 2013.

#ScoopYourPoop: Pet Patrol

Cleaning up after your pets is more then the right thing, in most states, its the law. Did you know if you don't pick up after your dog, you can be fined? In my city, the first time it will cost you $100, and every time after that the fine doubles. 

Here is what my mom can get me for $100 instead of paying a fine:

    • 1 Bag of Dog Food
    • 2 Bags of Treats
    • 1 Antler Bone
    • Stuffed Animal
    • 6 pack of Poop Bags

This and That Thursday: Work with my puppies!!!

So the other day my mom came home with some costumes she got from Target that were ridiculously cheap. So I wanted my friends and I to show them off! But it is harder then you think to get two rambunctious puppies to work with the camera. Here are our chronicles of that experience: 

Mom finally got the shot!

Louie is sporting a pirates costume. Carlie is sporting a wild lime green mohawk and orange animal print pants. And I'm wearing a referee shirt trying to take charge of these two fur butts!

Frosty Paws

Imagine you just pulled up your driveway. Your car is stocked with groceries. You load up your arms with more bags then you should, cause you only want to make one trip. You are fumbling your keys as you try to unlock the door. Before you know it a big, fluffy Goldendoodle is jumping up and down and for a moment you think you hear him saying, "Frosty Paws, Frosty Paws, I want Frosty Paws!" 

That is what I experience every time I come back from the grocery store. Spencer seems to have a sixth sense a when it comes to these tasty treats.
