I’m thankful I scored three Advent calendars for me and my sisters for this year. They normally sell out almost as soon as they are on the store shelf! Early in November, Mom and I were headed to Gramma’s house on a Wednesday when she said maybe we should check Trader Joe’s for Advent calendars. Just our luck, the shipment had arrived and the calendars were being put on the shelf. Mom grabbed three and said we are super lucky. A few days later friends of ours could not find them anymore.
Every year, I think for my whole life, Mom makes sure we pups have advent calendars. Some years she drives from store to store looking because they run out so quickly. Last year, she found these super pawsome, jumbo calendars with all kinds of good stuff behind the doors. Since my sisters are traveling during part of the Advent time, Mom wants smaller calendars and that is exactly what we have for this year.
Madison is also excited to have an Advent calendar, and one she can take along on the trip to Florida. It would be terrible to miss opening the doors for days on end.
Olivia can hardly wait to open the doors and get the salmon and sweet potato treats each day. They are individually sealed so they will stay nice and fresh. None of us are sweet potato fans, but with the salmon we wolf them down. I speak from experience!
Yesterday, December 1st, I opened the first door. See the nice treat, resting behind door one, waiting to be eaten?
Since the calendars are my project this year, I am testing them first. Can you tell from my zen state that my treat was super yummy? There is even some slobber on my muzzle!
As always, my tongue gives away what I am really thinking. I can’t wait to get another treat every day until Christmas! Not only are they super yummy, they are pretty healthy too.
Last buy definitely not least, there is a spot on the box for your pup to get some ideas of what to ask for this holiday season. Does your dog have an Advent calendar? If not, call around, maybe you can still find one.
