The Mother Lode

Here in the UK us dogs are treat-deprived. OK, we have the usual boring biscuits and stuff, but we don't get anywhere near as much exciting junk as our US pals. I'm always drooling when I read about other dog bloggers and their bully sticks and beef tendons and back straps. Hey, I didn't even know what a back strap was!

So J1 ordered me a shedload of stuff from one of the few US websites willing to ship a whole heap of dog treats over to the UK. After a tortuously long delay the parcel arrived yesterday. Here it is - The Mother Lode!

I'd already started unpacking in this photo...

I think I might be busy for quite some time...

Romeo said...

Wow Jackson,
I'm a drooling puppy over here seeing that terrierific box with all of those goodies. Enjoy my friend.


Pacco de Mongrel said...

maybe it would be a good idea if u start a 'jackson dog treats barkery' at UK

Amber-Mae said...

Hey, same thing here in Malaysia too. None of the treats here are as exciting as the ones where my fellow overseas pals live especially in the US! Malaysia is a Muslim country so no porky pork-pork products are allowed to be sold here eventhough they're for dogs not hoomans. So everytime we receive bully sticks from our friends, we really make a BIG deal out of them!

Love licks,

Gus said...

Jackson Old Bean...looks like you did a good job ordering...I will echo Asta and say to let us know if there is stuff you cannot find, we can ship. But...I must say I really enjoyed the stuff Faya sent from Switzerland! Those fish treat things were sublime.


Penny & Poppy said...

Great treats, Jackson. We're sure you will really enjoy them! Have a great weekend, buddy!

Jax, we echo everyone else regarding treats. Just let us know. In fact, we don't want you to lose any of your substanialness and have to be kicked out of your own club!

Sophie Brador said...

Jackson, Wow! That's the best package ever!


Simba said...

Lucky puppy! Yep, Beef Tendon and Moo Tubes are my FAVOURITE!!



Buster the Wired Fox Terror said...

Um, you do know what a Bully Stick is, don't you? Some poor bull is walking around without his dangles!

Noah the Airedale said...

Well J at least you can get the mother load into your country. Our damn country would confiscate the lot......sigh.
It's a good think the country that brought the world McDonalds hasn't forgotten its canine friends.

Enjoy the treats. We will continue to drool.

Hugs and tail wags

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Sweet Jackson...Mumsie will only buy us the beef "parts" or piggie parts if she can't figure out what anatomical part of the cow or whatever it is...otherwise she gets queasy...sad ain't it... did you let Dunstan in the club?? We're gonna go to the website and see if you posted a pic of him....

Hey Jackson,
You'll really love the beef tendons & bully sticks. Back straps are good too but the large beef tendons seem to be our very favorite!! Chop licking good, hehehehe. Have a great weekend!

Kirby said...

Hi Jackson,

I think it is so wrong that you do not have the treat selection in the UK that we have over here. I'm happy that your parents can order online and get you a nice supply of delicious treats! Enjoy!!

Your pal,

Asta Marie said...

Jackson...How nice of your Mom to order all that stuff for you from the U.S. I hope you get to enjoy it sure looks good...I have had a bully stick or two myself and I can tell you that they are delicious...we are back from the country and have lots of stories to tell...we got Mom a new mind for Mother's Day.

Asta Marie, WFT and Mother too....

Goober love & smooches,

Deetz said...

Pippa said...

It's ok. I haven't a clue what they are on about either half the time.

Just that they get an awful lot to eat.
