Christmas! It’s a-coming!
Today’s post is gently recycled. I’m thinking of bringing back the Q&A segment. Yes? No?
Are y’all excited about Christmas?! I’m not usually, but this year I am! Today is Follow Up Friday, a blog hop run by Jodi, at Heart Like a Dog. I answer some of the questions asked in the comments during the week, and one of them is about Christmas!! Specifically, 2 Brown Dawgs asks:
So what Polish food will you make for Christmas?
*SQUEEEEE* The Polish food is one of my favorite things about Christmas! Click here to see the recipe for the Christmas soup we’ll be making (my daughter has made it the last few years and she does a GREAT job). We’ll have pierogies and kielbasa with sour cream and horseradish. I’ve made the pierogi myself, but I cheat now and buy Mrs. T’s, as well as ordering meat Pierogies from a local German restaurant where the owner makes them from scratch. They’re amazing. What will YOU be eating for Christmas? This year my girl is making the pierogi and my chef boy has already made the soup.
Mom told me when one of her girls was little they raised a pot belly pig. His name was teddy and he loved Kody their youngest girl. He was her friend and she was his. Do you think that is why Mom loves pugs cos if you remove the u it can become a i real easy?
Who’s the cutest little Pug ever? Stella Rose! Of COURSE that’s why your mama loves pugs! And you look and sound a lot like little pigs. *squee* *squee*
Tenacious Little Terrier thinks I need a pig.
What’s one pig in addition to your menagerie? I don’t think I can sneak any animals into our house. We’re already out of space on the couch as it is.
No. Just, no. Flash says no. He’s still put out that he had to share couch space for a few months with this little guy.
We held a giveaway this week, our Holiday treats. I love giving things away! Bren, though, had a question about treat distribution. We’re currently holding a treat giveaway. Click this sentence to get to the entry post.
BTW, my favorite vendor and affiliate, Jeffers Pet, isn’t carrying the Jawzer bones anymore? Is something going on with them?
Bren, I’m not sure. I’ve put your question to Suzy and will let you know directly I find something out. The Jampacked Jawzer is an amazing treat and I’d hate for you to have to order that online instead of getting it locally. Unless you’ve been ordering directly from Jeffers online? Have you spoken with the store owner or manager and asked? Sometimes that’s a store thing. If they’re not selling enough of a certain product they’ll stop carrying it. I’ll get back to you as soon as I find out. Amended – Jones stopped making the Jampacked Jawzer and I can’t remember why. They never did bring it back, but the Bandit’s Bone is pretty darn amazing.
Have y’all seen Jones Christmas treats? They’re adorable!
Hey Flea! Just out of curiousity… are JNC safe for human consumption too?
Okay, this is easy and difficult to answer. Jones is all natural and all grown and made in the USA. All really good stuff. But the label on everything says that it’s not for human consumption. That said, this happened.
This is one of my favorite kids. And I’m pretty sure that’s a Beef Liver Taffy he’s eating. But no, it’s not meant or made for people. Honestly? It doesn’t taste very good to people. Rather bland. The only seasoning is a little salt. I think Suzy says she tastes every treat, but I have no desire to do so. It’s designed and seasoned and baked specifically for a dog’s palate.
One last question! This one from Johann the Dog concerning the Four Dog Family we featured on Wednesday.
Can you believe that some of our friends have 7 and more agility dogs in their family? Some retired, some competing and some in training….too much for Mum!
SEVEN DOGS?!? Wow. That’s impressive. I think I might actually like that if I didn’t have kids and could travel for things like agility and flyball. That would so rock.
Forgive me a couple of photos? It’s finally snowing here! First time in three winters, and I’m so excited! So is my gnome.
I’ll be snapping photos of Jim and the girls later. I’ll be making warm oatmeal with raisins for them as a treat here shortly. Now y’all go on and enjoy your weekend!
