A new friend of mine has an adorable little Dalmation puppy. Today Baby B and I headed to Walmart to check out their selection of puppy treats, toys, neccessities and gift ideas. We’d attempted this one day last week but the stock was very low at our store so we scrapped the mission and decided to give this a go today. Given the holiday season, I anticipated finding some holiday themed goodies, and I wasn’t wrong. I wanted to create a little puppy care kit for my friend for her pup, and fill it with necessities and frivolities for her little poochie.
I guess because we often make treats for our Tobey that I don’t often check out the aisle where dog treats are- I couldn’t believe how big the variety and selection were!! Tons of brands, flavors, textures, packaging sizes, and more. One thing I liked was the range of pricing- you can find treats for very little and gourmet treats for a lot more. Our local Walmart doesn’t seem to carry Milo’s Kitchen, which I was very disappointed to find, because it was something I specifically was looking to include in my puppy care kit. Some of the Milk-Bone® Dog Treats boxes had coupons (check your local newspaper the week of December 11 for a money saving coupon on Milk-Bone® Dog Treats!) for $2 off of a Pup-peroni or Milo’s Kitchen purchase but either they were 100% sold out or really just don’t carry this brand!! I was disappointed, because I wanted to grab some for Tobey’s stocking as well.
The first thing we noticed when we hit the pet department were Angry Birds dog toys. Now, I know what that is but I’ve never played (and won’t- I know I’ll be hooked right away!!) but I wasn’t sure if my friend does, so we passed on those. I did snap a photo. They are fun!! If you have an Angry Birds fan in your house, and a pet, definitely worth a look. [click to continue…]
