Our good sibe furiends Jack and Moo had a great idea for something special to do on this Howloween weekend. Here is what they suggested:

"SHOW US YOUR TREAT JAR"
blog photo day!

And we'd like woo to pawticipate!
It's simple: no trick to it--
Put a picture of your treat jar on
your blog on Sat. October 30th!




...and if woo can, please take a box of treats to your local shelter - our furbros & sis's "behind bars" will love it!



And so the OP Pack and the Momster decided this was one activity we could surely pawticipate in. We decided to put a little twist on the donation part. We all know how tough the economy is and how many people are out of work and struggling to meet their essential needs. We have some friends from our Mom and Dad's church who have been having a very hard time between job losses and serious health issues and subsequent bills. Through our church our family has been helping them in many ways. But they also have a beautiful old dog, and we thought that we would surprise her with a Howloween treat gift. No tricks required, just some yummy treats for our furiend. We are not posting any photos or pics of the family or their sweet pet because we aren't sure how they would feel about that, but here is a pic of our donation that Mom is going to drop off this afternoon.



The tartar control biscuits will be good for her teeth, and the senior milkbones will make sure she gets the right treat for her age. And then those liver treats are just so yummy we want to be sure she gets some of those too.


Now for OUR treat jar. We actually have a treat cabinet.

Here is a little peek.



But that's not all.



Could there be more??? Oh yes, look!



Maybe you can't see what is behind those treat jars. We will spread the goodness out a bit.


Those are our super duper yummy Catch of the Day treats with lots of good fishy smells. Then there are Yummy Chummies and liver treats for training.


Yes, you are so right, we ARE spoiled:)




Do we look ready?





Aww, c'mon, Mom, can we all please have one more? Look how much Phantom enjoyed that salmon treat. And how can you resist us synchronized and cute head tilters?


Happy Howloween and Halloween to all.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Firstly, I think it's awfully sweet of you to drop those treats off for your furend's doggie. I bet they're gonna be SOOOO excited!

Secondly, um...can you please give me your address cuz I think I might come live with you! All this time, I thought we had a lotta treats but it turns out I was WRONG! My mom's been skimping on me this whole time.

Wiggles & WAgs,
Mayzie

jgaffneycards said...

wow that is a lot of treats, but im sure you guys are very well behaved for Momster so you deserve them, :) i do love the head tilt at the end, you guys are so in sync, nice of you to give some treats to your doggie friend, hope you have a great howl-aween tomorrow,

hugs and pets, Jenny :)

Aksharaa said...

We are scanning for deals on air tickets because we are bringing all our bedding and stuff along, and possibly Mummy too coz we cannot live without her.
But it is definite, we are coming over to live with you too, just like Mayzie!
We realise now, our treat cabinet is just a match-box compared to yours!

And of course, it is just so sweet of you to take those treats to your friend. We are sure she will reeeellly appreciate it:)
wags, Buddy n Ginger

Aniemother said...

What a nice gift to give. And that's one impressive treat "jar"! We don't have a treat jar. Srsly. Perhaps we should try to report Mom for abuse (but then again we get steak and yummy bones efurry day..)!

Kisses,
B

Your treat cupboard looks a lot of fun, lots of tasty goodies in there...yummy!

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

Stumpy and I will be sure to visit you and your treat cabinet the next time we drive through Kansas!

It sure was nice of you to drop some treats off at your friends dogs house. I bet treats were one of the first things cut from the the grocery list! She'll sure enjoy them. Even more so knowing they come delivered with such care!

Right now it looks like no water until thursday :( It's not easy finding someone to come out to dirtville to do repairs!

Frankie Furter said...

What a great donation! Oh, I think I need a treat now. Mom and Dad are obviously seriously lacking in the treat department since we only have one measely little treat jar!

sprinkles said...

As someone who has been out of work for way too long, I just want to say thank you for all that you've done for your friends! I know that family truly appreciates it! I love that you got their dog treats. I'm sure with the lack of money in the family, any treats for him were few and far between.

Wow, I better not let my dogs see this post. They'll wonder why they don't have nearly as many treats as you do. Plus, they'd try to invite themselves over and "share" them with you. bol

Mr. Pip said...

I LOVE your vote badge!!! That's very cool! We are planning on doing a non-partisan election post on Monday night/Tuesday morning.

Your pal, Pip

Maggie Mae said...

Lola said...

That's a lovely idea and a super lovely and unselfish thing you're doing. Really, really nice. We don't have a treats jar anymore. Now we have a treat shelf in the hutch, right above the kitty dining room.

lotsa licks, Lola

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Ginger Jasper said...

Oh my cat I missed this somewhere alomg the line and didn't know it was going on. Mum says she will take something for the fur babies anyhow. Better late than never. I think your idea with a twist is just lovely and wish I could see that family's face. That treat cupboard is awesome and yes you are spoiled but othing wrong with that. Its good to see. Love the pictures. Hugs GJ x

Piappies World said...

Happy Howl-o-ween dear Phantom, Thunder and Ciara!

That's really sweet and thoughtful of you to think of your fellow church pup for your special trick or treat donation. Those yummy treats will surely brighten her day.

You got a really cool mom who loves and spoils you lots! Do you have room for us there for a treats party?!

Love,
Piappies Fudgie, Princess, Frappie, Mocha, Sugar, Wai-Pai & Wai-Max

the_Dogfather said...

Hi OP! Do you think you can drop off some treats at my place too? Mommy has been cutting down my treats big time! Lol!

Tanuki Maxx said...

Oh you soo definitely deserve more treats!
Hope you get them after all that head tilting!
Wow look at all those provisions! Lucky lucky woos!

Cheers,
Maxx

P.s - Mommy's got a habit of wiping my feet and paws with wet towel after each walk especially since i sleep on the bed with her..

Hound Girl said...

what a perfect post for the day of trick or TREATS!
xoxoxo
happy halloween!

Sue said...

Our treat area looks a lot like yours. Mom says we take up half the pantry with our treats. We keep telling her we can fix that and give her more space, but she insists on being stingy.

That's a very nice Halloween treat for your friend. We like to drop off treats for the doggies at the shelter waiting for their forever homes. It makes Mom cry, but she still likes to do it.

Martha and Bailey said...

We never did see so many treats!!!! It was great of you to share with other dogs - we are sorry we have only just seen your post.
We have to send some green papers for treats as both our rescues are so far away.
Great post guys.
love
Martha and Bailey xx

rottrover said...

Your ears are all at attention! You're so beautiful :-) And your mom is a very kind and thoughtful person.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You are so wonderful to think of your friend who needs help! We know how hard times are. Mom decided she is going to take a box of treats to the local shelter this week!

You are so cute in your pictures!

Raising Addie said...

Now this is a great idea!

Too bad our human has been slacking and not keeping us up to date. We didn't post our pic but we will definitely donate a giant box of treats.

Speaking of treats, we want to come live with you guys! You have the BIGGEST supply of treats!

Yeah! You guys are the BEST! I am so proud to be friends with pups (and mons) with such generous hearts...you helped make the world a little brighter today (and deserve an extra treat).

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, that was such a nice thing to do. I am always excited when someone sends me a treat of some kind and includes something special for the animals. So I'm sure the folks were thrilled someone not only remembered their dog but gave something age appropriate.
