we heart zuke's



I'd like to take a moment to discuss with you our love for the Zuke's line of all-natural doggie treats. I'd also like to state that we are pretty sure we can attribute any success we have had with Gordy's housetraining to this very specific line of delicious, flavorful, irresistable treats. Believe us, we've sampled them personally! Okay, that's a lie. But in the fickle, small throated world of our french bulldog puppy, these were the source of a major outdoor breakthrough. To put it simply, these have saved our lives. And potentially spared us the irresistable odor of dog pee in the morning... however tempting.

As it states on their website: "Zuke's All-Natural Treats for dogs and cats are made with premium meats, grains, fruits, vegetables and omega-3 fats." More specifically they were, of course, in no way involved in the massive pet food recall. We particularly enjoy the Chicken flavor of the Mini Naturals but they have a wide range of scrumptiousness from the newly added and fancy looking Z-filets to their Hip-Action containing Glucosamine and Chondroitin.

Be warned, however! Due to their (appreciated) lack of preservatives, we highly recommend keeping them in their surprisingly effective zip lock (read: resealable and oh so portable) in order to avoid the rock hard consistency they develop over short periods of time. I would like to offer you a specific autobiographical moment where I washed a pair of jeans with a hardened morsel of Zuke's in the pocket and it popped out of the dryer fully intact. Hmmm..... Regardless, when kept protected and moist, they are soft enough to break in half with minimal thumb pressure. Particularly useful when rationing the passion for a dog that seduces you into taking him out to pee oh, every 20 minutes.
