Okay, I know that this is not a DOG food blog (I was curious while blogging this post, so I googled dog food blogs..and wow apparently, there’s a lot of those too! I guess the dog culinary world is booming as well), but for this post, I just couldn’t resist! I love cute little puppies. They are just so adorable when they are babies. I spent the day with a cute little guy named Brownie. Brownie is a three month old Jindo that belongs to a friend of mine.
Jindos are known for being highly intelligent, loyal, and territorial. Brownie is growing to have all of those traits. He is such a funny little guy. He approaches every single stranger that walks by (extremely friendly). Yet, whenever someone he is not familiar with tries to pick him up, he trips out. He will start whimpering and panicking. I can only guess that it is because he is afraid that they will take him (very sociable dog but it looks like no one will be able to kidnap him even if they tried).
As soon as we got out of the car, his doggy senses led us to shop. He looked like a little kid going into a candy store. There were so many items that caught his eye, -doggy treats, chew toys, doggy baked goods, etc. He didn’t know what to sniff and rip open first. The lady there gave him some doggy treats, which he loved. She took some pictures of him because she thought he was cute. Brownie kept sniffing and begging for more treats. They must have smelled pretty tasty!
I wanted to shop around a bit more and buy more items, but maybe next time (when he’s not with me). I ended up getting some cookies, a cupcake, and a chew toy. I have no idea what the baked items are made with, but the way Brownie was going to town, you would think they were the best things in the world. It’s funny…when bakers bake (human) baked goods, it’s usually tasted. When I am cooking/baking in my kitchen, I taste everything. But with doggy food, it’s hard to imagine the bakers taste testing. Maybe they have dogs in the kitchen to do the taste testing? Lol. But whatever they are doing, they must be doing a great job.
Brownie could not wait until we got home. He is usually a calm, well-behaved, and patient dog. But wow….I gave him the chew toy for the drive home. I thought that would keep him busy for a while. Then he started sniffing the bag. He had a determined look on his face to get that bag open. He dug and clawed his way, ripped it open with his teeth and found the cookies. I got two doughnut shaped cookies for him. And he devoured them in no time. Just look at the mess he made, ripping that bag open.
I kind of think that Brownie sees me as a treat-giving-spoiling-him lady. I don’t yell at or scold him when he is being a brat. That is his owner’s job lol. He is always so thrilled whenever he sees me. He knows that he will be given something yummy or taken somewhere fun (like the dog park, one of his favorite places to go).
Watching Brownie enjoy those treats made me get a sweet tooth lol. The way he was enjoying everything was too adorable. His face was covered in frosting (totally cute) after licking it off the treats. He made it look so delicious. I can’t imagine that the items would contain sugar or cream. If I took a bite of it, I am sure that it would totally taste like dog food that only dogs would enjoy. No doubt I’d probably spit it out. But yeah, now I am craving some cupcakes and cookies too!
