Show Your Treat Day Saturday

Today we join our good furiends Jack-a-Roo and Moo in celebrating the second annual "Show Us Your Treat Jar" Day.

And help out those a little less fortunate too.

Can you believe we only have ONE measly treat jar? It has Alpo Liver Treats in it - we love them but wish Alpo would make them bigger even if Mom says they are the perfect size for a quick treat. The Momster also says it would be pointless to have more treat jars because with four of us, the treats never last long enough to need to store them:) So to show you our other treats, we borrowed the Halloween treat bowls before they get filled with all that yummy chocolate that we can't have.

Here is a closeup of some of our special treats. We love them all, especially that wonderful duck jerky and just about any treat from Trader Joe's. Of course, our favorite treats are the ones that are homemade, but we don't seem to have any of those around here right now. Hint, hint, Momster.

In keeping with the spirit of this special day, Mom will be delivering this big box of treats along with a big bag of dog food from Costco (yet to be purchased) to our local shelter,
Wayside Waifs. It won't be nearly enough to treat all the pups there, but we hope it will help make some of their lives a little nicer.

The Momster has a really hard time getting a decent photo of all four of us together. So we will have to make do with these.

Phantom doesn't hear much these days, but he did hear the word SNOW mentioned yesterday. Here he is looking for the white stuff in his yard. He missed the part about it all being waaaaaaay east of OP. To all our furry pals on the East Coast, enjoy that snow and stay safe.

Now where is that duck jerky, Mom?

Have a great weekend.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

What a great idea! Donating treats to shelters...
Yours look kinda good in them fancy Halloween bowls.
Hope you got some duck jerky since you were so patient posing..

Cyber-sibes said...

Ha-roo, furiends! Wowzers, that's a huge box of treats to donate - that is so nice of woo! We know the shelter pups will love having something a little special!

We love alpo chips too - that's whats inside our "regular" treat jar. Did woo notice we had Yummie chummies in our "special" treat jar? Those are one of our most favorite treats! That duck jerky sounds interesting, maybe mom will let us try some of that, too.

Thanks for pawticipating - same time next year!

a-roos to yous,
jack & moo

PS - no white stuff here, we're right on the ocean, but we hope the pups & peeps leaving the Nationals in Fitchburg MA have safe drives home!

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

WAIT! You guys actuallly shared your duck jerky and liver treats? I'd have to sneak those out of the house so Stumpy didn't know!

Your snow is coming, Phantom! I don't blame you for not wanting to share the spotlight!

I'm always amazed that you can get even three dogs to pose perfectly!

Happy, Waggin' Tails, FUREVER!
Stumpy and me

Barbara said...

What a great idea! Mine will have to wait until the 15th though...

Gus said...

no snow here yet....but it kinda feels like it outside.


rottrover said...

Aw, Phantom... The snow will be there soon, buddy! We're still working on our duck jerky. It gets saved for a special treat!!

-Ruby and Bart

Stewey said...

Awww - I absolutely love the last pic :)

sprinkles said...

I don't keep my boys' treats in a bowl either.

I'm sure snow will be there sooner rather than later (considering it's winter and all!) so Phantom will have something to look forward to.

the 5 Bs said...

duck jerky? we'll be right there!

you are very nice to pose for your mom to take a picture. we only pose when we are sleeping. heehee!

that's nice that you take treats to the shelter.


Maggie and Mitch said...

You guys are the best for sharing treats with pups less fortunate!
OMG, we are getting hammered with snow! We'll send you lots of it, guys!

Love ya lots

Hugs from your bfff,

Ginger Jasper said...

That is so kind of you and I know those woofies wil be so happy. Love your gorgous photo's.. Hugs GJ xx

Sue said...

We'd be embarrassed to show pictures of our treat jars. They're so big, but there are a lot of us. Mom says thanks for reminding her to start collecting treats and kibble for the shelter dogs.

Wish we were having a snow day today.
Morgan, Tsar and the Porties

Oskar said...

It looks like you guys have laid in a pretty good supply of treats. I know the pups at the shelter will love the donation.

Nubbin wiggles,

Julia Williams said...

We don't keep our TidNips in a jar, cuz I have a counter surfer would be all over those in a new york minute!
Snow ...'s coming but I'm NOT ready!

Tucker The Crestie said...

What a great idea! tr5444444444444gsdera cxvg

Someone sent me Yummy Chummies once and I remember they were delicious! #1 tends to bring my treats back from England because the choice here in France is so poor.


scotsmad said...

We don't have a treat jar either...we'll like some of that duck jerky.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Everybuddy, what a great idea. We have a local rescue home we could support too. Thanks. Your treats looks yummers. Mum is trying to get us all to behave when she gets the treats out. I have to jump up and down, up and down, cause Rory and Tyler are just so much taller than me.

Mum had success yesterday cause she didn't speak just waited, and waited, and waited until I finally got the message and sat. I was a good girl. We all send extra hugs to Phantom cause he looked a little sad in the photo.
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

mayziegal said...

You sure do have some DEE-licious looking treats there! YUM! And I know that you're gonna make somedoggie very happy with the treatsies you're donating!

Wiggles & Wags,

HoundDogMom said...

Those are some awesome looking treats. This is our first time stopping by you are some great looking fur-kids, with some awesome eyes. :) Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Clive said...

We are sure those treats will be much appreciated!

Can't believe the reports of snow we have been reading about ....

Hope though you get some soon for Phantom to enjoy!

Have a lovely weekend
Clive and Murray

Sagira said...

Wow, you guys sure have a lot of yummy treats!

That is so nice of you guys to donate to the shelter as well.

I also read your comment about taking one of your pups to be a therapy dog. I think you should consider it. They are so beautiful and nothing better than being able to make someone smile by just sharing your pup with them.

Maggie Mae said...

All dose treats will make some pups very happy! :)

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

PeeS Mom says you can have ALL our snow, her doesn't want any of it!

BeadedTail said...

The pups at that shelter are going to be so happy to get those treats and dog food! That's furry nice of you to help them out! I spotted some Yummy Chummies! I am addicted to those since our Grandpa brought them to me from Alaska! Costco has them in huge bags so I made Mommy stock them up for me!


Tweedles -- that's me said...

The treats look so good. They will make some doggys very happy.
We have never had duck jerkey. Is it made in the USA?
I bet it will not be long, and you will have snow!

houndstooth said...

I am glad the snow stayed out East! Have you forgotten the overdose of the white stuff we got last year?

Your treats look awesome and I'm sure some pups are very happy that you helped them out!


The Bleu said...

Wonderful post and I'm grateful to you for the support you're giving those in need!

*paw bumps Phantom* Love you, Bro. Truly.

with love to ALL of you from the Bleu

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

We recognized that purple bag from across the office! Unlike your Pack, we have treat jars in almost every room, usually filled with Fromm's cheese or liver-cranberry crackers...and of course, DUCK JERKY!

We are taking a big bag of cheeseburger flavored treats to Watermelon Ranch tomorrow to share. Wouldn't it be great if every pup and kitty had someone who regularly made sure THEIR treat jar was full? Some day.

d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Heyyyy... we want a treat jar!! We only have a treat drawer!

Schnauzer Days said...

Wow - that's some treat stash you have ther my friends1 Louis is positively dribbling ;-) We have a treat jar that gets us to move quicker than anything as soon as we hear the rattle! Have a great week guys, Dex and Lou xxx

Sarge said...

Wow, what a great treat jar! I love the black bucket...very fun for howloween! Looks like you already have a ton of treats, but more is always better!! BOL

Pepsi the Lazy Bum said...

WOAH! I was gone for a month plus (or so...) and you're now signing off with 4 members! You got a PUPPY?!!?!? Whatever happened in Blogville while I was busy eating bunny poop!?

Hehe, but I'm so happy you have a new furmaily member! I see Ciara has got Lightning in his position, under her.
