Celebrate Mardi Gras With This Simply Special Treat!

I'm looking for a last-minute way to celebrate Mardi Gras with North, who constantly has food on his mind. Now we all know that a traditional King Cake has no place in pets' tummies (with all that sugar), but the concept is definitely something we can work with.If you're unfamiliar with this dessert, a King Cake is a sweet treat that traditionally has a trinket like a bean or plastic baby hidden somewhere inside. The person who gets the prize gets to be king for the day. To find out how to surprise your pets this way,

Obviously, we don't want to add a nonedible choking hazard to our animals' food, but what about adding a special "trinket" to dinner tonight? Simply take a special treat that would normally be fed by itself and bury it inside your pet's wet (or dry) food. I tested this with North this morning and boy was he happy – he actually dug through the food with his mouth to eat the snack first! Remember, just one – we don't want pets to experience Fat Tuesday all too literally.

I've actually done this before and my beagle girl, Kylie, can sniff out those treats no matter what! She loves it :) I also make her do a scavenger hunt sometimes by hiding small treats around the house in her favorite spots...it's so funny when she gets a whiff, her nose starts twitching and she starts investigating whole-heartedly! Great idea to share!!
