When I saw a commercial for these Beggin' Party Poppers bacon-flavored dog treats,
I knew I would have to buy some for
not because we like bacon-flavored treats but because, as the instructions tell us:
1) Put treat on nose
2) Push in ... wait for it...
3) Watch it POP!
4) Take pictures and have a blog post.
The jar of treats was a little pricey, but I succumbed to Purina's marketing tactics because it's refillable.
I sliced some treats in half so we'd have twice as much fun.
Smooch wasn't sure what she was getting herself into,
but by then the room and my hands smelled like bacon so it had to be good.
So I placed a treat on the nose, pushed down, and we waited.
There's no telling how long it will take to pop off...
... or in which direction it will go.
This one disappeared on the window seat before Smooch knew what happened,
but she got the hang of the whole game after a few more tries.
It was a toss-up as to who was having more fun:
Smooch trying to catch the treats in the air...
...or me trying to catch the treats in the camera.
We'll both be doing a lot of practicing.
Maybe next time you see the pink pig, it will be popping carrots to Lucy and the boys.
