The cats had their turn yesterday, so today I’m elected, as the oldest dog, to tell you about a couple things that we pups are grateful for! The first is snow, and the second is treats, and believe it or not, these things tie together. How you ask? Well, let me start from the beginning of the story…..
We dogs love the snow, and I especially get very excited when the first big snow of the season arrives. Momz loves to see me racing around the yard in excitement, and we can’t wait to see how Luke reacts this year as well. Last week we got some snow, but just a little bit:
Even that didn’t last. Here is Luke looking for the snow, wondering where it went?
He couldn’t find the snow, but he did find some Snowflakes.
What are these? They are Vanilla Snowflake Flavor treats from Fruitables! They are the first and only treats made with real snowflakes! Yes, real snow from the Rocky Mountains. What else is good about these treats (other than the fact that they’re yummy)? The other first ingredients are pumpkin granola and yogurt, and they are 100% natural and made in the USA. Each snowflake has only 9 calories each…which is something the Momz loves (we do too because that means we can have more).*
Each bag has 300 crunchy snowflakes, but you have to hurry to get your own….they are limited edition, available for the holidays only! We think these would make great stocking stuffers for your doggie friends and family.
So while we are waiting for our first real snow, we are enjoying these treats. We are expecting a good size storm tomorrow, so we hope to have some photos of us playing in the snow for our Thanksgiving post!
Hey, Momz, maybe if we get lots of snow we can harvest some and make our own snowflake treats?!
From the Momz: I don’t know about that, Cricket! I just wanted to add that I haven’t always been a big fan of the snow as an adult. But over the last few years, because of the dogs, I have come to enjoy it much more (as long as I don’t have to drive in it). I spent most of the winters hibernating up until a couple of years ago when Kobi and I (with a little help from the girls) did the Idita-Walk. Last year sadly Kobi wasn’t up to snowshoeing anymore, but Luke joined our family so I spent a lot of time out in the snow with our new puppy and his sisters, playing fetch. I am grateful for the fact that the dogs get me out there in the fresh air almost every day, and this year I am even hoping for more snow so I can get my snowshoes out and take Luke for the first time through the woods in the snow (and the girls as well of course).

We are joining the Share Gratitude blog hop, as well as Tasty Tuesday.
This blog hop is hosted by Cascadian Nomads, Oz the Terrier, Loved by a Collie, and Kitty Cat Chronicles. They will be sharing about what they are grateful for all week long; other bloggers are encouraged to share posts and link up each day they do. Readers and followers are encouraged to share thankful stories and photos in the comments or on social media.
