Impressions: Is it just me or is it starting to seem like the dogs are getting more fun pumpkin treats than the people around here lately?!
Celebration: In this case, the cause for treats … not that I need a reason to splurge on delicious pumpkin treats, mind you! … was that my sweet, little puppy Cleo was celebrating her 2nd birthday! Also, my wife and I kinda forgot about the whole thing until I glanced up at the calendar part way through the morning, but a quick trip to Petco and $45 later, we had a whole bag full of all sorts of fun birthday toys, including these cakes as an extra special treat!
Execution: They honestly smelled pretty good – very gingersnappy, and if I wasn’t worried about the birthday puppy attacking me, I might’ve considered taking a nibble myself just out of curiosity! That said, she was also a little more curious when I finally gave her one, which was surprising because normally anything even remotely edible doesn’t get so much as a second glance with her, but these she sniffed and played around with for a while … which kinda sucked because she did it on the carpet and proceeded to create a nice, big orange stain from the frosting right in the middle of the living room!
Luckily, I was kind of expecting this because I’ve had this same problem before with other pumpkin dog treats, so quick with a wet washcloth, I was able to clean it up no harm, no foul. Sure, they’re a little expensive and you could probably buy a whole box of treats for the same price, but then again, your puppy only turns two once…
