Shasta Gets A Package in the Mail

It's not every day or most days that a package arrives via the mail person for Shasta. So we were  surprised when one showed up today .

 I had no idea what it might be until I recalled that our friends Sam and Paddy over at Barkzilla had emailed a month or so ago and said they were sending out some Frosty Paws goodies to some of their dog pals.

Shasta loves  packages and even opens them, so she got right to it. Inside was a cute Frosty Paws soft toy, that while not a dog toy , she happily took off with . Miraculously the toy is not yet shredded.

So it was a good mail day for Shasta , who was so overwhelmed by her toy ( she hasn't had a new soft toy in ages) that she  was ready to take a power nap.

Cloud Star Baked Apple Buddy Biscuits

Like any dog lover I love to buy treats for my dog. Since Shasta has exogenic pancreatic insuffiency it's something I don't get to do too much. She can't digest a lot of fat  so low fat or very plain treats are usually it.

 I was thrilled to see new Cloud Star Buddy Biscuits at my Target last month . We had good luck with the gingerbread ones  I got one  Christmas from at a pet boutique I stumbled upon in Philly but I hadn't  gotten any since . Small town means we are lucky to have PetSmart.

Target had  the biscuits in both Pumpkin and Baked Apple. We had no luck with a  different brands pumpkin so Baked Apple it was and she loves them .  There is a short ingredient list with these  and  little fat or fatty ingredients.  She tolerates them so well and they really do smell like apple pie. Good enough to eat.

These were special Halloween editions and we hope Target gets in more  holiday ones.

$ 4.99 per box

Welcome to The Leashline

Welcome to The Leashline.  I'll be talking  a lot about my dog, the beautiful Shasta and  other dog related things like our fav books, treats , toys and more.  I've  had a  a dog  since birth and have loved them since then too.  That first dog was a German Shepherd  and since her there have been 3  truly amazing GSDs along with some wonderful other pups/breeds.

 Shasta is a  beautiful,  elegant, vivacious, wicked smart girl,  with personality to spare.  She  was a rescue from a puppy mill, gotten out at a young age thankfully. She's taken full advantage of the lap  of luxury she's  landed in  as she well should. She has a chair on the porch, her own umbrella to lie under , a pool to swim in  and a lounge  cushion for after swim  among other things.

 The Leashline is a work in progress right now , so we'll be making changes and creating posts soon.

Thanks for stopping by. Tails Up.
