Dear Abby - Books and Treats (a/k/a Fun Stuff!)

Happy Friday, friends!  I hope you've had a great week.  It has been rainy here, so Momma has been carrying me in and out to do business.  I have her trained!  Plus, I sometimes choose not to walk in rain.  I go out on the back porch and then stop.

My friends Buttercup, Mojo, Bruiser, and Reina asked - We are wondering what your favorite book and treat are?

That is a fun question!  My favorite book is Part-Time Dog by Jane Thayer (also known as Catherine Woolley).  This was Momma's favorite picture book as a little girl.  It is about a little longhair Dachshund named Brownie who is looking for a home, and it is a sweet story about dog rescue.  I like the pictures!  Momma has a small shelf of Dachshund books and sometimes I have to pull one down to enjoy for a while.

As to treats - I like lots of them!  Some of my favorites are Bark Bars, Fruitables, Old Mother Hubbard, and Zuke's.  We shop for treats that are all natural and made in the USA.   Bark Bars are my favorite.  They are crunchy, peanut butter flavored, and shaped like cats and mail men.  (Please note that I like cats, and mean no offense.  Sorry, kitties!)

I also like fresh fruit and veggies.  I get 2 tsp. of "No Salt" green beans on my food every morning and night.  Eating green beans with my food is supposed to keep me full, and help me keep my girlish figure.  The important thing is this:  I love green beans!  I also like carrots, apples, bananas, oranges, blueberries, and watermelon.  I just discovered watermelon, and it is one of my favorites.  When Momma eats any of these foods, she shares with me.  I like that.

Just a reminder, though, that not all fruits and veggies are good for dogs.  Some, like grapes, raisins, tomatoes, and avocados are actually dangerous for fur-friends - more info here.

I would love to hear from you and learn about books and treats YOUR dogs enjoy!  I hope you'll send a note in the Comments, below.

As always, questions for future Dear Abby posts are also appreciated.

Love and a Happy Weekend to all,

xoxo  Abby
