Tail Wagging!

May 10, 2011

I'm totes slacking on mah blog, y'all! {aka how many made-up words can I fit into a sentence :}

I have to confess that I tried so so hard to catch up on Reader and I just could not do it. I had 700+ unread posts and after actually reading a bunch and getting all the way down to 600, I had to quit for the night. Then I tried again almost a full day later and it was up to 650+ again. So...I finally had to click "Mark All as Read". I'm kinda dying inside about it. I feel awful! But I'm sure y'all understand. Right??? So like I said a couple posts ago, pleeeease tell me if y'all shared some important news in the past week because I'd hate to miss out and not send you some happy happy joy joy comments :)

So here's my first link up in a while! Y'all know how much I love my baby boys so perfect timing to join in with C Mae for Tail Waggin' Tuesday!!

My Pet's Favorite Treats!

We actually have to keep our boys crated for a couple hours at a time each day so when we first started doing that, we decided to coerce them into the crate using treats. Now, each time we tell them "Get in!" in our happiest, most chipper voice they run to their crate - BUT they won't actually get in until we come to them with treats in hand :) If we know they'll be in there a little longer than usual, I usually give them 3 each of these bad boys. If not, usually just 1 or 2 each. They're little so we try not to overdo it, ya know?

Then my parents dogsat while we were on our trip to Denver last year and my mom {being the spoiler she is too!} got them hooked on Beggin' Strips. So these are their special treats when either we've run out of Snaps or when we feel extra horrible for leaving them crated. It's usually the latter :(

We've tried all kinds of treats with these little fools but these are their absolute faves and they've actually become quite picky over their treats. They'll eat a friggin piece of lettuce off the floor but when it comes to treat time, these are the only ones they'll eat. Brats!!

So that's that! Hope your Tuesday's been great! I'm off to relax with those brats of mine :) I had bought Ronnie and I tickets to see Rock of Ages tonight which I was so excited about but it ended up being horrible timing. He has his biology final bright and early tomorrow and is spending his evening at school in a study group. I just couldn't go without him so I sold the tickets. {Shout out to Craigslist!}. Have a great night, y'all!

I have absolutely no idea how I did it...but both of my "kids" crate themselves without any treats. :-)

haha I love that you bribe them to get in their crates! I think it's harder on us than it is on them sometimes! :)

It is funny how you say "get in" and they wait for a treat, Macy does the same thing :) Too cute and funny!

I totes need to get a pup soon! :) Don't worry -- no important news over here. Just general blabbing. :)

:) I love that your dogs will eat lettuce off the floor but only certain treats:)

Bummer about Rock of Ages though... that would've been cool!

My dogs could eat the whole bag of bacon strips in one sitting if I let them!
