Did all of you see Phantom and Thunder's post last week about the treats their mom brought them from California? I couldn't believe that their mom was so nice to go all the way to California to get them some Trader Joe's treats. We have several Trader Joe's within a few miles of our house, yet our mom has never gotten anything for us from there. I decided to have a talk with Mom on Saturday about it. The talk went something like this:

Me: Mom, how come you never buy me any treats from Trader Joe's? Do you not love me as much as Phantom and Thunder's mom loves them?
Mom: I'm sure I love you just as much as their mom loves them, but don't you think you have enough treats?
Me: No. Asking me if I have enough treats is like me asking you if you have enough shoes.
Mom: Very clever argument, Steve.

So that night, we all went to Trader Joe's. Kat and I stayed in the car, but when Mom and Dad got back in the car, I made sure there were some treats in the bag. Here they are!
We got the same kind that Phantom and Thunder had since they said the treats were tasty. Kat and I could barely sit still while we were waiting to try them.
Here we are eating the treats. Each stick is scored so they break easily and for some reason, Mom thinks that means that we should each only get half a stick instead of a stick each. I don't know where she comes up with these silly ideas.
After the taste testing, we have to agree with Phantom and Thunder. Those were some tasty treats! Kat and I each gave them a high five.
If you have a Trader Joe's near you, send your mom out to get you some treats!

Excellent work. We don't have one of those Trader Joe things around here, but the treats look great.

We don't have a Trader Joe's either, so I would have to send my Mom to California or Merryland to get me those treatz, and she SHOULD GO!

She said maybe they do mail order stuff, she will check into that before she gets her Reservations.
Or maybe you would like to go get me some?????? Or Maybe Not.

Living out in the middle of nowhere is not good. We can't get anything.

Great argument, Steve, maybe you need to add a profession to your resume, not only are you a great doctor but you could be quite the lawyer too.

No Trader Joe's here so we might have to paw Mom to tell the human brother to bring us some for Christmas when they come to visit.

Pee Ess, tell Kat to be sure to check out TD today at our blog.

There is no Trader Joe's in Australia. I think that's unfair. I might try that argument you used on your mum with mine, she has a shoe problem too, as we all know.

Way to score, you guys!

You both make them look so yummy!

We don't have a Trader Joe's in Hawaii, but mom and dad love that place! Maybe I can paw an email to my aunty in California to send me some treats for Christmas! :)

we have TJ's in NorCal, but i never knew they had doggie treats... we have to watch the wheat ones tho. they go right to Juno's hips. she gets so heavy on anything with grain in them. even organic treats, like Mother Hubbards (which we love) but can't eat sadly...

Hey Woos,
We hear the Trader Joe's ad on the radio all the time but it's up I-95 in Northern VA up by D.C.. Now y'all might think you've got traffic on I-5 going into Seattle, but believe us, you do NOT have traffic anywhere in the Puget Sound area. The DOT has the data to back us up. So the chances of either mom and dad going to Trader Joe's for treats is like, well, ZERO. Hey, we just checked the TJ website and unbeknownst to us there is a closer TJs in Richmond down by one of mom's favorite shopping centers so maybe our chances are better than we thought. Unfortunately, our mom is no longer a shoe fanantic like your mom and Huffle's mom since she retired from the government and started Vet tech school. We'll have to rely on the "you don't love us as much as Steve and Kat's mom arguement.
