Tommy's Treat-Thievin' Thursday

Tommy: Let me start by saying that I have always been known as a very, VERY good boy. I don't beg at tables or pester people for treats, and I never try to steal anyone else's food. But, once in a blue moon, circumstances beyond one's control do occur. Let me set the scene for you: we all have a treat time last thing at night, before going to bed. The Chans line up at their designated spot in #1's bedroom and, once they are done, I get a special treat too. These vary according to what #1 has bought and what she has opened. At the moment, we have lots of unusual treats here because she sent so many in her shipment from Canada. So, she had opened this packet of Crumps' Naturals Beef Tendersticks and I thought they were really yummy. Now she usually then puts the packet on the shelf on the landing. Enter my bro, Beebsy Boy, and a quick consultation before he slid the packet down and I.... ate them all!!!!!!

This is what #1 discovered:

But I do have a pretty nice #1 so the first thing she did was to see about ordering me some. She found them on for $14.97 for an 8-ounce bag. She thought she would check to see if they were available on They were, for about $45 the packet! Generous as she is, she found that a bit steep. And refuses to ship them to us in France. so, she has asked our friend Ms. P in Texas if she can have them sent to her and then sent on to us.

In the meantime, I will have to make do with "home-grown" treats. Kitty friends, I think you will be grossed out, but these are shavings from the V's hooves from when the farrier came. They are incredibly yummy too, and they are free! The best (most tender) ones are shaved from the horse's "frog" which is in the middle of the hoof.

Oh, and here is a pic of me:


  1. Well Tommy, when treats are that good, it is hard to resist.
    Good thing you have little brothers(Bibi) to help you too. MOL!
    Horse hoof treats...who would have guessed :o

  2. Whoa! I had NO idea that horses' hooves could be treats! I'm not sure if I'm excited or grossed out by that.

  3. Dang, a whole bag of treats sounds like fun Tommy!

  4. Horse hooves as treats? I never knew. Da Beebs and Tommy... partners in crime! It's pretty hard to resist treats when they're right in front of you.Am I right Tommy? Anyway, you'll always be a very good boy and #1's going to get you more!

  5. Tommy - you can't be entirely blamed for that - unless you MADE the Beebs do it. :)

  6. Horse hooves are treats ? Why not ! We never heard of it, but we would love to try : we should ask our neighbors. Purrs

  7. Oh Tommy! Those treats must have been the best ever for you to eat the lot. My mum saves the hoof trimmings for her nephew's dogs. She says they are the best chews.

  8. Tommy, we are so happy to hear that there really is a bit of mischief inside you:) You have now risen even higher on our list of esteemed pals:)

  9. BEEBS, dood! Can we hire you to slide a few things our way as well?
    Way ta go, Tommy!

  10. I hope you enjoyed the entire package, now you have to wait to get more! Hope you didn't get a tummeh ache either.

  11. We know the tree rat did it
    Lily & Edward

  12. Tu es bien un chien Tommy. Tous pareils avec votre passion pour la corne ... beurk !
    Pour les friandises, tu n'es pas coupable ... c'est pas toi qui les a fait tomber. Si elles tombent du ciel juste devant ton nez, tu ne vas quand même pas les laisser.
    Le tout après c'est de ne pas avoir d'indigestion.
    Tu es un gourmand !
