The Great Pumpkin Caper

Sid always gets a treat (or three) when he comes inside from his walk.  His post-walk treat is his top priority when we come inside, meaning he won’t go straight for the water bowl no matter how badly he needs to refresh and cool down.  This lack of regard for his own health and safety is slightly terrifying to me; he gets soooo absurdly pumped up about food that I’m pretty sure, someday in the near future, the combination of extreme treat anticipation with his high body temperature and mild dehydration is going to cause him to have a heart attack before I can even open his pouch of venison jerky.  So, I’ve been mulling over various plans to provide him with a treat that is both deliciously satisfying and cooly refreshing.

And thus we present to you Pug Slope’s Famous Frozen…Pump-sicles?  Pumpkin-Pops?  Frozen Pumpkin Cubes?  Whatever!

Completely organic and additive-free – perfect for the dog who’s allergic to everything!!

A refreshing and healthy treat for ravenous pugs and their panda-bear friends!!

Helps promote regularity!!

Your dog will get crazy eyes for this ice-cold pumpkin surprise!!

But…pumpkin cubes are not an instant-gratification-type of treat.  They’re currently in the freezer, slowly solidifying in their custom compartmentalized tray.  One must be patient to enjoy frozen pumpkin.

Lucky for Sid, the most impatient pug in all the land, the whole can of pumpkin wouldn’t fit in the ice tray.  So Sid got to test out some room-temperature pumpkin in order to ensure that this orange goo was up-to-snuff, treat-wise.

Apparently pumpkin is so lip-smacking good, it’s worth storing a few morsels on your muzzle.  You know, for later.


Tomorrow: We unleash the pumpkin cubes!

    Hey Sid!! I eat pumpkin every day! My parents think they are hiding my pills in it, but I know they are there. I’m just like you though…so obsessed with the yummy food that it doesn’t matter the pills are in there too. Love the picture of you with crazy eyes…you look so happy! I would be too with the smell of pumpkin in the air! I can’t wait to see the ice cubes tomorrow…I’m on the edge of my seat. I may sit by the computer until then…except when it’s time to eat, then I’m outta here.
    PS. I meant to say yesterday that I really like your dad’s drawings and comics of you that he posted!
