Maggie is ready to go fetch a Frisbee but would stop in her tracks if you mentioned her favorite treats.
This is the front of the box that I cut out and scanned. They have an Original flavor but she prefers Peanut Butter.

Our friends, Mz Bubbles and David give little weenie dog, Spencer these treats. When we got Maggie, David wanted to know if she got "Frosty Paws".

Maggie vocabulary is quite large but those two words are the ones she loves to hear.

On the back of the box it states "The idea for Frosty Paws(Frozen Treats for dogs) came about when Dr. William Tyznik saw two women sharing their ice cream with their dogs. He cautioned them that ice cream is often difficult to digest and can upset their dogs' stomach. He then challenged himself to come up with and ice cream they could safely give their dogs. He tested it on his own pet dogs, he created a nutritious replacement for ice cream that's fortified with protein, vitamins, and minerals. They're cold, delicious and refreshing and dogs LOVE them!"

I do know that Maggie truly LOVES them. They come in a little ice cream paper cup like the ones children use to get in school for lunch. I just take the top off and sit the cup into her bowl and she will lick it clean. She has never ever bothered the cup but a caution is made on the box to take them out of the cup. I guess some dogs would eat paper. Not Maggie.

Prince thought it funny to aggravate her and touch her hind quarters and say "let me have some of that." She would issue a low growl but never missed a lick. Prince would laugh and do it again.

Prince thought it funny and showed Puppy who showed his Uncle. I cautioned Prince that Maggie had an aggressive streak and would rather he not do that. Then one night he persisted toooo long and Maggie followed his hand up into the air. From that moment he has not tease her again. I will give you a little background.

Prince's teasing of dogs has gotten him bit more than once. The last time it happen, we were dating and my big male chow chow, Chu Tu took a plug out of his hand. Chu Tu would growl when he had enough and Prince was use to his good natured lab. Well the second time he teased Chu Tu, he got bit. We spent hours in the emergency room and Chu Tu got a bad reputation. Chu Tu was gonna have to go and spend three nights in dogie jail for the offense but Prince went and signed papers that it was his fault so Chu go a reprieve.

My warning to y'all if you give your doggies a Frosty Paw, do not try to take it back. Also, since Maggie was so fond of them I tasted it.

The Kitty Justice is stay away from Frosty Paws with your hands and tongue as it tasted AWFUL. YUCKY POO.

Lady Di,

I was taught from an early age that teasing dogs was not a good thing to do. Meeko is very protective of his food, especially pig's ears, which he gets on very rare occasions. If you try to take it back, he growls and lowers his head over it with the ears down. As big as Meeko is, I won't let him get away with it. If he growls, the food is taken away. I just won't put up with it and he knows it, yet each time I play the part of the alpha female, I wonder if I will have a hand when I'm through. We taught Meeko from the time we got him that WE are in control of the food, but like any animal, he can be a bit testy at times.

Molly looks so meek and mild - a beautiful dog, but they all have that survival instinct. I hope Prince is doing okay.

Blessings for a great weekend.

I was taught not to bother an animal when eating and never have.You are brave to take Meeko food away as he is a very big dog. Maggie is so mild mannered is why Prince thinks it is funny that she will growl. Maggie has not bitten anyone and I hope she never does. We are enjoying cool fall like weather. Peace

the Kitty Justice is's for DOGS..LOL

I too got a good laugh out of you tasting the dog treats.

My older sister likes to brag that she use to feed me dog biscuits when I was little. I do not remember, but she insists it is true.

Mary said...

Lady Di,

I have never wanted Meeko to be nasty about his food, but the older he gets the more protective of it he is. I do let him know that I am the alpha but don't usually bother him. The only time I do is when he growls at me for no reason.

Your Maggie is sweet as can be. I love when you post photos of her.

Blessings for a great week.

Hello Dianne ~~ It isn't nice to tease an
animal while it is eating. They give us such unconditional love, that is the least we can do for them is feed them and not tease them. Guess Prince has learnt his lesson there. Thanks for your comments and I am so glad you enjoyed the Phone story and the Japanese Banks etc. And the dogs of Johns are so small, compared to Maggie, but they are cute.
Glad you liked the flowers and the 28 lines to make us smile. Take great care, Love, Merle.

Kitty said...

aw...Maggie is pretty. I can understand how touchy she is about food. I can be the same way!

Don't mess with the hungry dog!

Lady Di Tn said...

You are correct. Peace

I am glad you got a good laugh. I have often heard that dog food taste very good so I was really shocked when the ice cream was so Yucky.One of Puppy's football buddies use to carry little dog biscuits to munch on and he said they were really good. I think you would have remembered if they had tasted bad. Peace

Thanks I do think MD is adorable. Glad Meeko knows who is in charge. Peace

Prince has just gotten home so I need to fix dinner. Hope you have a great week. Peace

Thanks for dropping by. Maggie is a very pretty girl and the smartest dog I have ever been around. Her vocabulary expands daily. Peace

I have never heard of these kind os dog treats. I will have to look for them. My dogs love their treats and have never growled at anyone but then again we have never teased them about their food. A definate no no.
I came back from my journey and am busy looking at all the posts. Take care. MB

Glad to see you back and on the net. Hope you had a grand time. In one of the grocery stores we visit they only carry the orginal treats and our new Publix on Hwy 100 has both flavors. They changed the location from the ice cream section to where the bags of ice are sold. I guess I was not the only hoomin to try them. heehee

I must say you were a brave soul for tasting it, i just couldn't imagine trying it.... But have you ever looked at the new food that Beneful puts out for dogs? They make casseroles, stew and a bunch of other stuff, it all looks SOOOOOOOO GOOOOOOD , but my Princess won't touch it. I thought about having hubby taste it to see what he thinks of it. LOL
