Wishing 4 Treats

Dad made mom a wishing well for the front yard and ever since, me and Stanley have been wishing for some treats.  Every day we check to see if there is anything special at the wishing well and then FINALLY one day last week . . .

Yup, we wished for treats and a box from Chewy showed up!

We noticed something interesting on the package.

When we tried the report we noticed that the "best by" date had already passed.  It said the product was no longer available.   Mom said that just made it the same as all the human food in the pantry but still was not a best practice for product sales.  Since we received it free we wouldn't complain.

So . . .

We ripped that bag open quickly.  Wow, these are big pieces of jerky!

And they are thick too!

So mom had us sit down and then she said the words we dread . . . WAIT!

It was pure torture!  After 87 minutes, maybe more, she finally said the good words!

 We were fast . . . real fast cuz the speed of light is 186,000 miles/second (weird that mom knows that off the top of her head).

It went down smooth . . . it was tender and delicious!

We give this product 8 paws BUTT have to subtract 1 paw for it being past the "best by" date for a net score of 7 paws.

UPDATE: Chewy contacted us and apologized for the "best by" date being past and they are replacing the treat.

  8. We need to borrow your wishing well, we want to see if it will make four legged things disappear. great review. stella rose

  9. I like the wishing well and the treats.

    Aroo to you,

  10. How funny that we both got treats from Natural Balance and both got jerky. Hunter loves jerky. I just checked out product and there wasn't any use by date, but I have heard that since Dick Van Patten doesn't own the company anymore there have been some changes. Also I recently heard an explanation on "best sold by and best used by" dates on human food. Grocery stores use the best sold by date and the best used by refers to the flavors being at their peak for taste. You two are so well trained, I'll have to try that with Hunter.

  11. Those look so good! That's really disappointing about the "best by" date, though! :(

  12. YUM! We wish we had a Wishing Well. Don't worry about the Best by thingy. Jerky is supposed to LAST, and we're always eating snacks that are past their best by date....like smelly fish at the river and stuff.

  13. We're surprised your mom didn't try that old trick of breaking that jerky into smaller bits and making you believe you were getting multiple treats. Yeah for Chewy for sending you a fresh package too so now you can eat more!

  14. Wow! It was a big hit! Our heads are still spinning trying to keep up with faster than the speed of light...
