Happy National Peanut Butter Day!

Did you know that you can treat your dog to peanut butter? Yes, you can. You can stuff a kong toy with peanut butter and freeze it. Then when you leave the house, you can give them their kong or you can give it to them when they are in their crate to keep them busy.

A good way to trick your dog to take medication is to put the pill or capsule in a wad of peanut butter and give it to him or her. Works like a charm!

The health benefits of giving your dog peanut butter are amazing. “Not only is it a good source of protein, but it also contains heart healthy fats, vitamin B, niacin, and vitamin E. The best peanut butter to feed your dog is raw and unsalted.” http://dogsnaturally.com.

In my opinion, raw and unsalted is best.  You can purchase that at Publix Supermarket and or Whole Foods Market.  But don’t overdo it. Also, do not give a lot of peanut butter to your dog, as he or she can gain weight.

However, a word to the wise on peanut butter. Make sure the peanut butter you choose does not contain xylitol. Xylitol can be fatal to dogs. Reading the label before purchasing is a must!

Much healthier. [Read more…]

Q        Dudley, what is your favorite food?

A       Well, pet sitter June stays over at my house and spoils me with lots of love, treats,  long walks, and games.   Love her!

Q       What games does she play?    

A       One game she plays is hide the treat.  She puts the treats in different places in both the backyard and in the house. When they are all placed, she says, “Dudley, go, on your hunt!”  So, I put my nose to the ground and I find them.  I always look forward to this game!  It is so much fun hunting, having all those scents to look forward to.  And yes, I get lots of treats too!  Ha! Ha!

Q       What are your favorite activities?

A        You know I am a beagle, so I love to hunt, put my nose to the ground.  But love to walk with my Dad everyday!  We take lots of long walks; love them!

Q         What would be your perfect day?

A          That is easy, that it would be raining Beagles!  Having lots of scents around so I could put my nose to the ground and find a prize!

Q         Dudley, what is the lesson of this interview?

A.        I am so grateful that my Dad takes me on long walks and feeds me well, so I stay healthy and lean.  And yes, my Dad stays healthy too by those long walks on beautiful Tequesta Drive.
