    I imagine Penny was generously rewarded for her patience during these photos!

    I’m keeping these in mind for my dog. Needless to say, it’s hot here in TX during the summer.

      Oh yes, she got a few treats and plenty of love afterward. I’m sure your dog would appreciate some of them in that Texas heat.

    Penny is so cute. I used to do this for my dog in the summer. He would have loved the salmon treat and turned his nose up to the peanut butter. He was not a fan of peanut butter. Thanks for sharing. Gotta keep our four-legged friends cool during the summer heat.

      Thank you. She is cute and she knows it. I’m actually surprised that he would have turned his nose up at the peanut butter ones. I have yet to meet a dog that doesn’t like peanut butter but I guess there are some out there.

    These sound great and would definitely be a huge bonus where we live since the heat is pretty ridiculous for 90% of the year. Will have to give all of these a try and see which ones Connor and Echo prefer. You know..for science.

      It’s an easy thing to overlook. If they love plain ice cubes then they will absolutely love these.
