Tasty Tuesday - It's an ice ice day today

Back in March you may remember my post I Scream for Ice Cream for Dogs.

The Lady Of The House had been to Crufts and found out about the launch of a new iced dessert specially for dogs. We were very excited as our American blogging friends had told us about doggy ice cream and we'd never seen any for sale over here in England.

Well, recently when we visited the website for this new product - Billy+Margot - we learned that it was now being stocked at a branch of the Kennelgate pet store just down the road from us. So the LOTH hotfooted it down there and bought a tub of apple, banana and carrot flavour - with her very own money - for me to try.

This is my honest opinion:

I think you can probably tell that I really loved it.

They didn't let me have too much in one go. BECAUSE THEY ARE MEAN PEOPLE! Because it is always sensible to proceed slowly when introducing a new food to dogs - especially to a greyhound.

It was a nice experience to eat it while the Man Of The House held it for me and I hope there will be some more sunny weather soon so we can try some outside on a warm sunny day.

I am also continuing to enjoy a tasty treat a day courtesy of the trial of JointCare+ treats from Pedigree. I look forward to my one-a-day treat and know that it's good for my hard-working joints.

That looks delicious and I'm glad you finally have fine frozen treats to partake of, Miss Winnie! I think there's something similar to that in the freezer case at one of our pet stores, too. We tried the apple peanut butter flavor and loved it!

Glad you liked it! I make Joey and Scout yogurt treats. Have you tried those? I use a vanilla yogurt. I blend it with a mixer or a blender and I add some peanut butter to it and place it in little cups with lids and place it in the freezer.

Sue said...

I think you should send me a taste of it, just so I can be sure. It sounds so yummy. I do get ice cream once in a great while, not nearly enough.

I'm glad you got some ice cream treat! What are the ingredients? We have some good one here, one I like to give my dogs is by Yoghund.

Winnie said...

It seems to be all good stuff Peggy. No dairy or grains or gluten or colourings or artificial sweeteners or taste enhancers.
Just apple banana and carrot puree, fructose, coconut oil, aloe vera, flaxseed oil and potato flour.

Two Doodles and a Dane said...

Wow Winnie, that sure looks amazing, we do love ice cream but we have never seen DOGGY you think you could save us some? Hmm...but by the looks of things there is none left!
We will have the hound Mum (no pun intended) to see if she can find some up here!
