Crazy about cheese

We were recently asked by Mr. Chewy if we’d like to try YumZies dog treats. We enjoy Mr. Chewy’s prompt home delivery service. It is convenient and easy. And they offer many different pet products at great prices.

If you seem to spend your life running all over town shopping at different grocery stores, it is a relief to be able to stay home and get your pet food at your front door. And with gas at more than $4 a gallon, who wants to drive anywhere. Plus, no more lugging heavy bags of pet food home and cross off the pet shop from the list of errands.

Orders of $49 and over are FREE shipping! Orders under $49 are a flat rate of only $4.95.

They have programs that help support animals so you can also contribute while buying necessary items for your pets.

The funny thing is that Cici has come to believe that whenever the door bell rings and a box arrives, she thinks it is for her (usually that is true).  So besides greeting the FedEx, mail person and/or UPS with wags and kisses, she gets really excited knowing that there is something really yummy for her in the boxes.

Cici is always willing to do a taste test so we agreed to give the Yumzies treats a try. She loves her cookies and treats  and is crazy about cheese.

However, Cici does not always like treats. And I have noticed a pattern.  It seems that treats that list “Natural flavor” do not seem to pass muster with her. Wonder what that mysterious ingredient is. Frankly, the first two times I offered her the cheese flavored Yumzies she did not want to eat them. The third time, however, was the charm. And she has been enjoying them ever since.

YumZies are soft moist dog treats. They are grain free and contain omega 3 & 6 fatty acids. YumZies dog treats are intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only.  Give 1 to 4 treats per 10 pounds.

People use treats to train their dogs. I use treats to reward Cici when she does something I ask her to do and “just because.”

YumZies comes in four flavors — BBQ Chicken, Hickory Bacon, Cheese, and Peanut Butter.

Ingredients:  Chicken, Potato Flour, Pea Powder, Tapioca Starch, Glycerin, Fish Oil (preserved with Mixed Tocopherols), Natural Flavor, Pea Flour, Powdered Cheese, Salt, Lecithin, Garlic Powder, Brewer’s Dried Yeast, Phosphoric Acid, Ginger Powder, Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Bisulfate, Cultured Dextrose, Mixed Tocopherols (preservative), Citric Acid (preservative), Rosemary Extract

There’s no wheat, corn, soy, artificial preservatives, or artificial flavors.

YumZies are made in the US by a company called Nootie, that also makes pet shampoos and fragrances.
