Oh, she'll always take them, but whether she eats them is something else. The last time we were in Tractor Supply, she very nicely took the Milkbone from the cashier, and then set it down on the plastic bag loader (not even on the floor!) and looked at the lady, as if to say "All right, what else do you have?"
So, as a followup to my recent post about having found decent food in my grocery store, I also found decent treats. Just a few ingredients. They are, however, little crunchy bone shaped biscuits.
It does combine two things that Elka very much likes indeed: peanut butter, and yogurt (well, one of them is yogurt "frosted", anyway. The other two are just peanut butter). The single creepy ingredient in these is "artificial color", for the coating. I imagine it's to make sure it stays white.
At $1.99 for three of them, this won't be a regular purchase for Elka. They are big enough that I can break them up, but I gave her the yogurt one whole, for the fun of it. And some pictures, of course.
While the coating appealed to her, she seemed at a loss, at first, as to what she should do with it. I got a picture right as she put it on the floor and pawed it.
Maybe it was a toy? It smelled peanut buttery, though.
Mostly, peanut buttery things are to be eaten. Or coveted, because the humans are eating them.
And we have a verdict. It is not a toy, but rather a treat. I'm so glad that Elka figured it out...I keep trying to say how smart she is!
