Howloween is Almost Here! Time for Treats and Treating!
We are so excited that Howl-oween is almost here! And that means treat time! We're joining Jack and Moo of the Cybersibes again this year in their third annual Show Us Your Treat Jar event! Our collection of paw print treat jars has changed little over the years, with the exception of the addition of a few air tight canisters to keep all the homemade treats fresh. With the recent onslaught of treat recalls, we've taken to whipping up homemade treats more frequently now, and the Sibes love it. They get all excited from the baking aromas in anticipation of the treats! Above is a collage of Harley, Gibson, Wolf, Chloe, and Bandit in all of their treat glory...and you can see a few of our treat jars in the photos!
As part of this event, Jack and Moo also ask for everyone to think of those furkids who are less fortunate and do not have a home or treats of their own by donating some treats to a local shelter this Howl-oween season. We love this idea and will be doing just that! And as a special treat for participating, you could possibly win a beautiful handpainted ornament from PAWSPainter! Just be sure to check out Cybersibes' post for details!
And with this spooktacular holiday, we'd like to remind all furpal parents about some safety precautions when the hu-kid trick or treaters come calling to keep our pets safe. Please be sure to read our article (and that's our Bandit with the jack-o-lantern!) titled, "Pet Safety: Keeping the Scream Out of Halloween" on page 16 in the latest issue (#3) of American Pet Magazine - and even see a shout-out to the Cybersibes' "Show Us Your Treat Jar Event!" Here's a sneak peak:

Just a few precautions can ensure a happy and safe Halloween for all our pets and their families!
