oh joy

Alas, yes. If you've heard that I've reverted back to the squat-n-pee, then you heard correctly. I haven't lifted my leg since we've returned from the wilderness. But I'm 100% sure that when we got back there next, I'll remember and I'll slip right back into it, though! So fear not, don't worry about me, I'll be fine. I just need to talk Massah into going out there again soon!

But I have good news of great joy! Since I have a couple "conditions" that make it impossible for me to eat anything good (like bones and treats and such), Massah doesn't usually take any chances and try new things. She's tired of cleaning up all kinds of things that have left my body in ways they shouldn't (and of spending massive amounts of money at the vet'narins). But on the advice of Nanook, she ordered some of these:

Sam's Yams! I was so happy when I realized she actually ordered them! And I didn't really believe it until they came in the mail! But one day they just showed up on our porch! Oh glorious day! Look how happy this little guy is! He's so happy I think he might be humping it!

That's how happy I was (minus the humping, I've never done that) when they came!!! This was when we first got them!

I look a little silly...

But I wasn't worried about how I LOOKED - I got a yummy delicious TREAT for the first time in years and years! Okay, in months, but it feels like years!

Mean Sister Fig liked them too, the little pig!

And the best part - THEY DIDN'T MAKE ME SICK!!!!! We got them on Thursday night, and Massah made me wait until the weekend was over to make sure they were going to stay down, and now I can officially say "THESE ARE MY NEW FAVORITEST THINGS IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE WOLRD EVER! OF THE UNIVERSE!!"

My favoritest.

TAdpole, soo glad you finally found a treat your tummy can take, it looks super yummylicious..don't let Fig eat them all, she looks like she has a bigger mouth and could cram more in.
Come visit me sometime, love Asta(up over)

Ruby Bleu said...

Yay Tad!!! Those treats look really yummy...or should I say yammy - LOL!!!

I found so dried chicken wrapped sweetpotato treats the other day...can you eat chicken jerky or does that bother your tummy too? If it doesn't let me know and I can send you some.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Oh I'm so glad they don't make you sick. Now you have a new treat besides just carrots.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Tad. I am so happy to hear that those treats weren't bad for your tummy. And you are such a good boy to share them with Fig.
Enjoy them.
Have a nice day!

I don't think I've ever seen you that happy - at least in the time I've known you-.

Great video, Fig is so cute in the video isn't she??? Ahem, anyway, looks like you two are really enjoying those treats, you almost knocked your Massah down trying to get one. hee hee

Frenchie Kisses,

Yay! Welcome to the world of treat eaters! Good that they don't hurt your belly. I like those treats too but I eat them in about 3 seconds. Three bites--gone!

Oh--I do that crawl up the ma ape's leg when she has tasty snacks, too!


Lady Kaos said...

That's great Tadpole! I don't know what I'd do without chewies and treats. It was very nice of Nanook to let you know about them.

Bella the Boxer said...

Way cool, Tad!! My Mom is really careful about what I get, too...but with your endorsement I think I can convince her to buy some for me. You look sooooooo happy!

xoxo - Bella

Billy said...

Now those are interesting treats...where did you get these exactly? I haven't seen any around here...can you give us the site of where you ordered?

I love your pictures Tadpole, you are too adorable and oh Fig too of course, can't leave her out:)

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

Joe Stains said...

wow, we sure are happy that you found a treat that doesnt make you barf. I have to say I hesitate a bit just like fig when handed a treat like I am thinking, is this good enough for me??

hooray for treats you can eat!!

Luckie the Dachie said...

Hey Tads,
You really look so happy with your new treat. It does look healthy and yummlicious. Mom wants to know if they ship internationally too!
I must say I'm surprised that Massah fed you first and Fig was ok about that. hehe.....

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Oh Tadpole, that treat really look so yummilicious. I'm glad you found a treat suitable for you

Yay Tad, I bet both you and mum are so happy you can eat your Sam's Yams. They certainly do look yummy!

Our Mommy bought us those & we hated them. She called us spoilt lil brats (which, of course means, the coolest dogs on the planet).

We're so happy you found something you can eat that doesn't make you sick. Now you don't have to feel left out! Hooray for Sam's Yams!!!

Oh wow I am so glad they worked out for you! Although it is making me feel guilty that I must postpone this week's This Newf Reviews due to my international travel...
