Zuke's Treats: A Love Poem

A steady thump against the porch
My tail goes wag, wag, wag
Because grasped tightly by my mom
Is the Zuke's treat bag.

Zuke's treats are meaty, moist to chew
They're also really good for you
"No by-products" is what it's labeled
Always have these at your table.

Rabbit, apple, turkey, duck
I'd go to a Zuke's treat potluck
So many flavors to smell and taste
Not one treat would go to waste.

The meaty aroma floods my nose
Tingling in my Dachshund toes
"Just one more" is what I whine
To mom the 87th time.

  8. We love your new header and background! Mom goes to the hippie granola health food store in the next village that's not a chain and has the BESTEST stuffs (including my favorite bison burgers and the goat milk kefir Mom makes the world's fluffiest pancakes out of). They carry the Zuke's treats as they have a natural food pet section in their little store. Mom got one for me to send to Frankie Furter and a couple for the house. They are the BEST.
