Don't try it

It’s a good day when I find a new food I’m not allergic to.

I have a bunch of food allergies:
Tree nuts
…and etcetera

So here’s the ingredient label for the new food I can have:

Ingredients: Barley and Spelt Flour, Ground Oats, Chicken Meat, Rice Flour, Chicken Livers, Canola Oil, Beet Pulp, Dried Skim Milk, Apples, Salmon Oil, Tumeric, Tocopherols.

Doesn’t sound too bad; all the ingredients are of U.S. origin, and one snap contains just 24 calories.
Except… of course there is a catch.

Kong brand Stuff’n Puppy Snaps Treats.
I tried the Chicken and Rice variety.

Although they had a nice crispy, fibrous texture from the beet pulp, and a hint of sweetness from the apples and spelt, the salmon oil was overbearing and left a nasty aftertaste.

I wouldn’t recommend them.

Ha! As I was reading those ingredients and hit the "chicken meat" part I thought "cat food!". Close enough, I guess. :)

Please tell me your critique of the the flavor was based on a good guess, or that your dogs shared their thoughts with you!

Oh, Beth, I am SURE she tried them herself!! LOL!

I kept thinking that SURELY it was saying "puffy" treats and I was just mis-reading it as "Puppy" treats.

No folks, she was really eating dog food.

Oh, well, what you usually eat is practically horse food anyway, might as well experiment.
