Dog Days of Summer #6 - Treat Time!

It's day #6 of the Dog Days of Summer, and that means TREAT TIME!!!

We are BIG fans of treats.  Bully sticks, sweet potato snacks, turkey hotdogs, marrow bones, dried lamb lung, Vienna sausage bits, string cheese, leftover steak tidbits, milk bones, cookies... Well, you get the idea.  If it's edible, we're into it.

HOWEVER,  as you know, we've been working very hard to train Mom how to dispense treats properly.  We have spent countless hours working at this thankless task, and we will continue to work on it until Mom gets it right.  So, our Treat Time post is going to focus on, erm, inspirational photos.  We hope that Mom will study Jessi's award-winning technique pictured here, and that Mom will continue to practice her treat dispensing skills.  We are certain that in time, Mom will get it.  And in the meantime, we'll keep working with her.  Because we're good like that!

A nice over-the-shoulder move here.

The full-arm-stretch method of treat dispensing.

I think Mom just needs to keep practicing....  So it's off to the kitchen to help Mom work on her technique!  Heehee!

Too funny! Sam turns into a land shark and is too fast to catch on film. Most of the time, we are just glad to have some fingers left!

These humans are such slow learners ...that's why I say just bypass them and take the treats yourselves!

You DO know that bully sticks are bull pee pee's, right?


P.S. Momma was shopping at the dog store behind some people who were asking the owner what kinds of chews to get. The owner recommended bully sticks but the dog people said, "well, they do tend to smell a bit." Momma blurts out "well, of course they smell, they are smoked bull penises." Oh dear.
