We have new neighbors who love horses and would like to feed Marley & me some treats.
Now that's what I call being neighborly!
However, My Lady insists that we avoid sugary snacks, so she is on the hunt for a healthy, low sugar treat that she can suggest to the neighbors.
As you know, I LOFF CARROTS! I hate apples. (Marley likes them, but you can't judge a treat by Marley because he'd eat a hamburger if it was dropped in his feed bucket. ) My Lady thinks carrots and apples have too much sugar to be a frequent treat anyway, so no carrots or apples.
And so the experimentation begins. Guess what nasty thing she gave us?
I sniffed it cautiously. Then I took a little bite. Strange stuff. I spit it out, walked away and stuck my upper lip in the air. Ewww.
Marley of course, gobbled up his share and then finished mine. He was a little surprised at the texture and bobbed his head up and down real funny-like while he chewed. But now he acts like he was born to eat celery.
We got celery the next day too. This time My Lady had Marley show me how to eat it. She let Marley chomp at one end of the stalk while I sniffed and nibbled ever so slightly at the other end, a la Lady and the Tramp. I ate a tiny bit more, but let Marley have the lion's share, so we never did meet in the middle for a smooch. I'm not sure I can acquire a taste for celery, but I think I'm gonna get another opportunity tonight.
What other low sugar, healthy treats might we try?
