Tasty Tuesday

Today we are participating in Sugar, the Golden Retriever's Tasty Tuesday. You can visit Sugar's blog HERE and read all about it.

FINALLY . . . . . .

Here in Overland Park, we have a Trader Joe's. It opened this summer about five miles from our home. It is now one of Mom's favorite places to shop. She visits the store at least once a week and brings home something new and different to try each time she shops. So far she hasn't found anything she doesn't LOVE.

Well, she has been a great Momster and remembers to bring home something for us too. So now WE all love Trader Joe's too.

For today's Tasty Tuesday treat we present:

AND . . . .

AND . . . .

Let's take a closer look at the chicken and sweet potato flavor dog treats:

If you look closely, you can see that they are each scored across the middle so you can break them in half for smaller pups or if you have a stingy Mom who won't give you the whole piece at one time - hint, hint. They have all natural ingredients and NO CORN - none of us tolerates corn very well.

But we sure are all ready to sink our teeth into one of those tasty and crunchy treats.

Mmmmmmm, those were so good. But now it is time to get on the move and head on out to the big celebration for Wyatt's Third Birthday. He is hosting the Wyatt County Fair. Be sure to stop by HERE and see all the fun many of your furiends from Blogville are having.

Happy Birthday, Wyatt, and thanks for letting us join in on all the fun.

We loved the Funnel Cakes - super delicious - and now we are enjoying the pawfect treat for snow dogs - SNOW CONES!!!

It sure has been a very Tasty Tuesday.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning


Wyatt said...

Thanks for coming to my fair and wishing me a happy birthday!!
We love Trader Joes too. Mom's favorite thing is the Carne Asada, over in the meat case...perfect for BBQ!!


Bailey Be Good! said...

Oh cool! Finally got everyone to look in the same direction. Teehee!

Woofs & hugs, <3

Those treats look tasty, I know all about Moms that break treats in half or in my case she even breaks them in quarters to make them last long. There should be a law against it.

We love Wyatt's fair. The cats even sneaked in to try the teacup ride the fair is great. Ciara would you care to ride the Tunnel of Love ride with me? ~Fenris

SissySees said...

Yet another reason to bemoan podunk's lack of a TJ's. Sissy is highly allergic to corn, so we'll have to stop in TJ's the next time we pass one.

Dory and the Mama said...

Ruby's Raiser said...

You lucky mom and lucky doggies! We moved from a Trader Joe's state to a non-Trader Joe's state 4 years ago and are still having withdrawals!

Kari in Vegas said...

Trader Joes is the best!!!


sprinkles said...

I've heard a lot of people talk about how much they love Trader Joe's. Unfortunately, we don't have one here so I've never been. How nice of your mom to remember you when she goes and to bring you home treats.

I hope you're having fun with Wyatt at the fair. I don't know him so I wasn't aware he was having one.

Kitty+Coco said...

We are jealous, Trader Joes is far far away. We did get some chicken jerky sticks with a Boston T. on the front from our grandma from there. They were pawsome! I bet if you pups looks really really hungry the mom will give you another.

Great Fair pic!

Stewey said...

Yep - my mom loves Trader Joes too!
Great group shot!

Maggie and Mitch said...

We don't have a Trader Joe's close to us but we do know that people who go just love it! Those treats sure look yummy!
OMG, we have had way too many corndogs today and too much cotton candy but we're having a blast at the fair! Wyatt sure knows how to throw a birthday pawty!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Tessa the Maltese said...

Ohhh Mom and I are so very Jellyous that you gots a Trader Joes by you. Our closest TJ's is 4 hours away! We only go about once a year. But we both really LOVE TJ's!

I is off to the Wyatt County fair right now!

woos, Tessa

Doris Sturm said...

Oh, how I miss my Trader Joes...there isn't one here where I live...(sad!) and I'm not a big corn fan either - I don't feed Gizzy any dogfood with corn in it.

How cute that photo looks of the foursome. Now you have a new little "beggar" staring at you for goodies...very adorable!

Reilly / Bree said...

Ohhhhh wish we had a Trader Joes here.....Mom says she misses them so much too. Those snow cones looked great - I wonder what flavor they were?

Chicco said...

Mmmmmmmm...!!How many delicious treats! you are very lucky! Your mom is really good.
Have a nice week, my friends.
Woof, woof,


Tucker The Crestie said...

KB said...

I just realized that you now have FOUR pups to organize for a group photo. It must take a very long time to get all eyes on you. But, those great treats must help!

Lightning's eyes are mesmerizing.

Mrs. JP said...

Such a nice group shot of them waiting for their treats. I wish I could do that! Lightning looks so little next to his pack mates. I bet he has sharp puppy teeth still,,youch!

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

All of those treats are making us drool!!! Just love your addition of little lightning!!!

Woofs and Kisses!

Kirsten said...

So many different treats to choose from! I've tried TJs Chicken Jerky sticks and those dried strips--they're great for training treats, and won't go rancid sitting around in at raining pouch :)

That's a very handsome food-motivated foursome!
