Meet Bossy’s new cat! Almost.
It all began innocently enough one day a few weeks ago, when Bossy spied a white cat outside her dining room window.
Fast forward a few days when this very cat found its way up on Bossy’s front porch. The first thing Bossy did was notice its little tag on its little collar, so she phoned the little number. And when she says she phoned the number she means she made her husband do it.
And guess what? The number was disconnected, and there was no other information on the cat’s collar, except a name: Snow Flake.
The next thing Bossy did was
fall in love fetch the cat some milk in a saucer because that’s what people do in the movies, kind of like how people in the movies boil water at the sight of a pregnant woman.
The next thing Bossy did was rename the cat Honky and try to figure out where it was going to sleep. And then the cat wandered happily away and Bossy thought that was that.
Until the next day, when the cat returned. This time Honky née Snow Flake wandered into the backyard where Bossy was busy
cursing gardening. Once again, Bossy fetched a saucer of milk for her new cat:
And Honky née Snow Flake wasn’t a bit discouraged by the site of a field mouse dressed as a Mack truck:
Not so of Stella when she saw the cat:
And then Bossy asked around the neighborhood and she found out her cat isn’t Honky née Snow Flake at all, but rather Snow Flake née Honky née Snow Flake because Snow Flake never was a stray and in fact has a nice home up the street, and a very exciting life visiting various neighbors who all love her.
No one was more relieved than Stella — and this is about the time Bossy remembered that her nice friends at Bit O Luv had provided Bossy’s Mack Truck née field mouse with several different kinds of dog treats to sample.
Bit O Luv is a cool innovative company that believes in using high quality ingredients good enough for people but formulated for dogs. Frankly, Stella thinks acorn shells and carpet lint are formulated for dogs, but she does seem particular smitten with the Bit O Luv treats in flavors such as roasted chicken, smokehouse, and bistro beef.
Bossy is thrilled to tell you her nice friends at Bit O Luv would like to give ten Bossy readers a bag of these dog treats to sample yourself! Or rather, for your dogs to sample themselves! Even though they are good enough for people! Bossy is going to stop typing now!
Simply leave a comment below, one per person please, and Bossy will employ her friend the Random Number Generator to select the ten winners. Come to think of it, these treats would make a decent stocking stuffer for someone you know with a dog.
Bridget saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:10 am
Ah wouldn’t this be a nice change of pace from Rooney’s usual snack of *my favorite pair of shoes.*
Helen saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:18 am
If I win this it’s for Dinkie.
Denise saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:23 am
Olive the black standard poodle would love a Bit ‘O Love! Come on RNG!
rikki saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:23 am
No dog for me, but MIL and SIL both have ’em! Thanks Bossy! Go #3!
confused saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:23 am
My win would go to Kona “Super Dog”
km saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:25 am
my rescued lab would love these. She is skittish and needs lots of kindness.
Brava97 saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:27 am
I LOVE neighbor cats who come calling. All of the lovin’, none of the allergens in my house. (I don’t have a dog either, so no need to enter me for the puppy treats.)
GreatAunt saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:27 am
Bruno would love to test those treats!
Sissy in Texas saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:28 am
I think you need a cat. And, I need these treats.
Julian saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:28 am
Levi would love this! Do they have a ‘Week-Old-Trash’ flavor?
Mara saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:31 am
I bet by ancient girl would love some new treats when she’s recovering from her orthopedic surgery.
kidsmom saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:31 am
rockle saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:34 am
awesome, these will be for my sister’s furbabies if i win! they eat everything. they tried to eat a dirty diaper once. these treats sound much better.
Heather R saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:35 am
Hendrix is keeping his paws crossed for some treats!
jess in boston saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:36 am
oh my, my pup Eli would love those (but yes, he does also love carpet lint and acorn shells, and so i suppose his palate isn’t so, well, discriminating . . .)
21st Century Housewife saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:37 am
Wait . . . what does this have to do with Bossy’s son?
Kaitlin saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:38 am
I have a Boston Terrier named Charlie who would LOVE to try these!
Dawn saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:38 am
Lily and Dallas would love these treats.
Joyce saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:39 am
Oh, you’re lucky Stella likes acorn shells and lint (my Golden loves acorns also), my beagle mix is obsessed w/the cat’s litter box – ok, interject a collective eewwwwwwwww! here.
Pam saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:39 am
My Bailey would love these! Oh, she’d love carpet lint, too, but she’d love these more!
Tara saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:41 am
Mona Lisa, Boo and Savannah would love to share these! Even though they love the abundance of acorns mother nature provides on our back porch!
zidia saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:42 am
“Shaft” would have been a neat name for that beautiful cat!
Tatiana saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:42 am
Don’t have a dog myself but I do have the fortune to dog sit for an ADORABLE lab mix named Ridley. She would love these in her Kong.
WebSavyMom saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:42 am
–>My two labs would love them plus our friend’s dog who most recently seen pulling the cart on Halloween. It’s a whole lot of dog going on in our neighborhood. ha!
Kait saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:44 am
My big ridiculous ball of (arm) pit bull love would probably be overjoyed to have treats. She spends most of her time grooming our cat, so real food might be nice.
sherry saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:46 am
Husband has threatened on more than one occasion to re-name the Shih Tzus “Hoover” and “Kirby”.
Bridget saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:46 am
If Stella likes them I know my Carson the yellow lab would love ’em! 🙂
BossysMom saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:47 am
I used to eat “Milkbones” as a kid…and loved them, can’t imagine what these delicacies would taste like….
pam saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:47 am
Bobo and Meja Sweet would LOVE these.
mia saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:49 am
Oh NOOOO! How is it just THIS day I see this post. I just posted a similar cat situation.. woe is me…!!!!!
Kim Conner saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:50 am
Kim’s dogs- Deadline, Jopi and Suzie Q would LOVE to try these new treats. Maybe then they would stop eating sticks and bugs.
MidLifeMama saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:52 am
Ponch, Gus and Buster would be happy to test drive those treats!
Kate saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:56 am
My doggies always need a good Bit O Luv. Hope I win!
Pgoodness saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:58 am
My doggie would love a bit o
Jennifer T saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:05 am
Oh, those would be nice for “Santa” to leave.
Suz saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:05 am
Poor Stella! Our ratties would be just as indignant at the presence of a Honky on our steps. And just as thrilled as she to have bit ‘o luv people-food snacks rather than their normal snackiness, er, tissues retrieved from the trash can.
carson saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:09 am
The Smooch pooch would be ALL over these, doing who-knows-what kind of tricks to get her some.
Theresa saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:09 am
My 10 year old adopted mutt would love to fight over these with my 4 month old adopted mutt!!
By the way…after adopting the 4 month old mutt it was revealed to us he MAY be mixed with Great Dane.
Mary g. saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:10 am
Rosie would love a bit o love.
Jennifer M. saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:10 am
My black lab Sofi would love them!
Kathryn A saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:11 am
Sophie Beagle has to put up with 2 6-month-old “Snowflakes” (if snowflakes came in orange tabby) right up in her floppy ears, all day, every day. They aren’t allowed to wander around visiting the neighbors, as their predecessor disappeared doing just that, so instead they try to get her to play kitten games. And walk all over my computer. But that’s for a different giveaway.
She needs some bits o’ luv.
kristin @ going country saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:12 am
When I put the dogs in the pasture at night (they sleep out there to keep coyotes away from the sheep), I grab whatever stale crackers or moldy bread is around. Lately, they’ve been getting persimmons from our tree, because there’s a big bowl of them in the kitchen that we never get around to eating, somehow.
My dogs aren’t very picky, is what I’m saying, but it would make ME feel better to give them some real dog treats for a change. Instead of our random free, but redneck, treats.
The Great Getzby saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:12 am
… no cats.
chocolatechic saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:12 am
I think Stella needs a cat type companion,
Bossy should go adoptt a cat
William saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:17 am
Does Bit O Luv make cat flavored treats?
Jess saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:19 am
Buster is drooling for these treats!
Paula Duncan saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:19 am
Well, usually I enter these giveaways for me, but today I’ll enter for the dog. 🙂 Banky will be pleased if he wins.
Jenn saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:20 am
Delilah and Bonny would love some treats please Bossy!
Z. Mulls saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:22 am
Theo craves pieces of broccoli stem. I don’ t know if savory meat bits would agree with him.
Rebekah saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:28 am
Martha Stewart (the redbone/beagle) would love these!
Jim saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:31 am
Bossy the treats are great, but the cat must go !!!
Jessie saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:32 am
McBain would love them!
Debbie in GA saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:33 am
Our lab mixed breed, Rose would love these!
Well Read Hostess saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:34 am
So do you have a cat named SnowFlake now or not? Does it eat dog treats?
My dog would eat the dog treats.
And if my dog doesn’t learn how to not eat furniture and shoes and bar at 3 a.m., I’ll trade it for the cat and eat the dog treats myself.
Dharmamama saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:37 am
Awww, sweet little neighborhood cat! We have one here, that a friend of mine attempted to adopt – the kitty walked 4 miles back to this neighborhood to continue going from house to house! She doesn’t have an official owner, she just gets fed and sheltered when she wants, where she wants.
I think my sweet giant dog, Jack, would enjoy those treats. Oh! I think he heard me type that – he came running into the room!
Bree saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:37 am
Deuce (the boxer) would enjoy these. Of that I am certain. Then again, she has been known to eat her own poo.
Melissa saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:37 am
Pick me pick me! I’ve got a lab, labs love to eat. It’s meant to be.
And way to go snowflake for working the neighborhood.
Michele saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:38 am
Petunia would love some extra doggie snax, even though she ate *half a cake* last night from the garbage can. Thank you!
MariaV saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:39 am
Cool! Thank you, Bossy. My girls Holy, Angel, and Noelle would love to taste test these.
Lynna saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:39 am
Snowflake is Puurrr-ty!
Gerry saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:41 am
Livvie and Meka are spoiled enough, but I would be happy to spoil them even more.
Mel saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:42 am
Tuck’s always game to try out new treats, except they have to be grain-free and have nothing in them that comes from cows, because he’s allergic to those. I love him to bits and pieces, but he really does have some issues.
hope saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:44 am
I have a daughter, my sister has two dogs. Clearly my furry niece and nephew need these treats.
Tuli saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:45 am
My Big Russ would LOVE a bag of treats!
Oh, pleasepleaseplease pick me Random Number guesser! Pick me!
monnik saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:50 am
Aw… my dog is in poor health, won’t be here much longer. She’d LOVE these.
Hopefully random number generator is swayed by pity for a sick sheltie mix named Merlin.
Tracy (Oklahoma) saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:55 am
Pretty cat…as far as cats go! (Not much of a cat person) But Stella……that Stella, she’s a beauty!
Jen O. saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:57 am
My dog would LURVE a new kind of treat to try. Coincidentally, my dog is named Bossy. I think Random Number Generator will find this fact amusing.
Shania saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:58 am
My little fat bulldog would loooovvve some of these!
nono saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:59 am
I love Stella’s Jack Benny face and thoughts. Although I’m more used to seeing it on my husband’s face when bringing home yet another lost soul. 🙂 Thanks for the contest, I’ve got 3 dogs of my own that would never turn down a treat! Have a great weekend!
krg saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:06 pm
I was with ya up until you were giving away dog treats. if the giveaway had been the cat, then I would have been in.
the great getzby doesn’t know what he’s missing.
Bev saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:09 pm
Our girls, Dora & Bella, are Wheaten Terriers…they love treats!
Lisa saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:10 pm
It makes me sad when people let their cats outside, I see so much kitty roadkill….and deal with so many baby kittens from pet overpopulations! AGH!
Martha in Kansas saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:10 pm
Snowflake’s story reminded me of a friend’s dog who grew increasingly fatter, despite the rather strict diet she was on. Turned out that on her morning constitutional she was going from neighbor to neighbor and had convinced each she needed pancakes with syrup.
Eliza saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:12 pm
Arlo the dachshund really needs a Bit O Luv, since the whole family is so smitten with Digby the new doxie pup.
Ms. Karen saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:14 pm
My ancient hounds (ages 16 and 13) might even stir from their hours-long naps for a snack like that.
Paul saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:16 pm
Stella’s Jack Benny Face is priceless! And my Lizzie would LOVE some of those treats!
Debbie saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:16 pm
There must not be coyotes in Bossy’s neck of the woods b/c Snowflake/Honky wouldn’t have lasted long around my neighborhood. I have a very nice German Shepherd who would love a bit o luv from Santa this year!
Wendy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:20 pm
Bella the Greyhound would love some treats! She got bitten by another dog this week and has to wear a very embarrassing lamp shade on her head until she heals. The treats might make the indignity of it all more bearable.
Angel saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:21 pm
Coco the Beagle Dog and her playmate, Blue Bloy the Italian Retarded Greyhound says, COUNT US IN!
savannah c. saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:22 pm
My mini dachsund Frank would love these, I’m sure of it.
Pamela saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:25 pm
I’m laughing too hard to comment properly, but if I win the dog treats, you can drop them off at the Well-Read House, because we ain’t got no dawg.
Meredith saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:27 pm
Ha, I thought you were giving away a cat!
I’ll take one of those doggie treats for the pups that wander around my dog-friendly office.
K saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:28 pm
Maybe it would help my hopeless golden pass her CGC next week?
Manic Mommy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:28 pm
Did you know that milk’s not actually good for cats? Probably a little now and then doesn’t hurt though.
My cat is a bit of a neighborhood slut like that. I think he’s got at least two or three other homes. The nice cat lady behind us actually called one night to let me know he was having a sleep-over.
Sandy Shoes saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:30 pm
I have a new friend with two brand new baby weiner dogs that would love to try Bit O Luv!
Ellen saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:31 pm
Me, me me! Pick me!
MemeGRL saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:31 pm
And wouldn’t it be so convenient to just walk those Bit O Loves around the corner on one of what’s-her-name’s walks?
Glad Snow Flake is fine and her family, the Flakes, just forgot to update the phone number on her tag.
Theresa saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:31 pm
If I win this, I think my husband might cave and let me get a dog. Please?
Laura saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:32 pm
Do they come in crumpled-up tissue flavor? If so, Heidi would love them!
Cindy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:33 pm
My Jasper looks like Snowflake would look — if she weighed 85 pounds. That doesn’t mean it’s time to lay off the treats, does it?
I didn’t think so either.
Smoochiefrog saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:39 pm
You would so make Clyde’s Christmas if our # were picked. 🙂
Carolyn saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:40 pm
Rosie would love some treats!
Cathy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:44 pm
Murphy the Mastiff loves all treats!
Stacey Ball saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:44 pm
Whisky would follow me to hell and back for a dog treat!
Lizzy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:46 pm
Martha would love some treats that are good enough for me, but formulated for her.
TanyaK saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:48 pm
Even though they don’t have “my own butt” flavor, I’m sure that Sparky the Wonder Dog would find them quite tasty!
Dee saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:50 pm
My always hungry black lab Chevy would love those treats!!!! I see you still have a screen on your porch!? Guarantee it would be gone if there was a cat outside our house!!!
ScottsdaleGirl saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:51 pm
Harley and Chopper will both “Sit” and “Shake” for one of those bags o love.
Donna saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:54 pm
Hey! I have a white cat that looks just like that! And I am also the lady who takes in pets so now I have 4 cats and one sweet puppy who deserves treats after living with those crazy fur balls! Love the post. Made me giggle.
Jody saysNovember 6, 2009 at 12:59 pm
My Dog Henry would love those treats!
Ange saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:01 pm
I obtained (rescued) a new Doberman puppy and she is eating us out of house and home. Free snacks might just save me from having to join the poverty post.
Have the T-shirt saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:05 pm
My Bailey is all about the treats!
anne marie in philly saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:09 pm
I would give the treats to my sister’s 2 rescue dogs for festivus.
ny cat kids, steven and meredith, would turn their noses up at d-o-g treats! smart kids!
krazy kris saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:12 pm
I have a precious orange tabby for a neighbor, we call her “yellow kitty”. very original I know, she oftens finds it necessary to walk by me with her nose in the air and completely ignore me. I know she justs loves me too pieces but can’t show it! I’d love some snacks for our puppy Gilley too 😀
Nikki saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:13 pm
Dog treats! We could always use more of those!
Lisa saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:14 pm
Your a funny gal, bossy..what bowl will you use for the gin now, pet owner?
Julie T saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:21 pm
Sweet! Treats for my Buddy-boy!! <3
Cactus Petunia saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:21 pm
Abbie and Cooper are drooling already! Count us in before they flood the place.
AnnP saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:25 pm
God this post is so funny! And well, yeah, my dog Snowy would love a new kind of treat…thanks for the chance!
Grandma J saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:26 pm

Jessica saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:38 pm
Those look like something Choxie would adore!
deedle saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:39 pm
Rascal the chocolate labradoodle aka my only son would be most pleased to win these!
Teki saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:42 pm
My two hounds from hell would lurv some treats!
Jacquie saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:43 pm
Moki would like a bag, please. I’m so glad the cat story has a happy ending. I do not like cats, but I am pleased when they have homes and love and all that crap.
Bonnie saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:47 pm
What about Stelllllaaaaaa? Does she want you to give away those treats? Hmmm?
Jan @ SbS saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:55 pm
I’m entering on behalf of my two 4-legged boys. 🙂
Cathy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:56 pm
On behalf of Moose the Bugg who would loves treats…and acorns.
Liz saysNovember 6, 2009 at 1:59 pm
You’re right on about the stocking stuffers! These days, I think I have to buy as many doggie xmas gifts as people ones. 🙂
JenC saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:02 pm
Stella is so beautiful…makes me want a Great Dane!
Ami saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:04 pm
Oh, tell the Random Number Generator I’ll lift my shirt for it if it picks me (or rather, if it picks Rufus…)
Julie saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:08 pm
I remember once reading an article that stated that there were X number of cats in the UK and Y number of owners. X was a much smaller number than Y, because those crafty cats were double dipping.
Em saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:12 pm
I know one deranged beast (Lexi) and one absolute angel (Pieter) who would LOVE to try these tasty morsels!!
melissa saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:28 pm
I have always wanted a great dane, Yours is so beautiful.
Instead, i have a chihuahua. Who thinks she’s a german shepherd.
Connie Harbor saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:35 pm
Coltrane (Golden) 130 pounds, but think’s he’s a Yorkie and lets Marley (4 year old) ride him like a horse.
Zoot (Rescue Mutt) who has a beautiful ruff, like a lion, but is timid, like the Cowardly Lion from Wizard of Oz.
zay saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:41 pm
my pups would love to be able to sample a bag. 🙂
The Domestic Goddess saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:42 pm
ip of the day: Never, ever feed a stray cat. NEVER. BEcause if they are that friendly they ain’t strays and they’ll keep coming back…And that would be bad because HELLO GIANT DOG.
Also, cats should be indoors. Period.
Amanda saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:44 pm
I like the name Honky better than Snowflake! 🙂
Joanna saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:45 pm
My Schipperke, Freya, would love some new cookies!
Hope I win!
Angeerah saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:47 pm
We have a white cat named Shrimpycat (dumb, I know) and one of my friends calls her Honky. Of course if we were to win some treats, it would be for our crazy Irish Wolfhound mix named Rudy, who we call Polly Walnuts because he cracks open the walnut shells and eats the walnuts inside.
Tammy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:52 pm
Harley the German Shepherd/Yellow Lab cross would love to represent Southern Minnesota in the Bit O Luv Focus Group. 😀
Elizabeth saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:52 pm
My sweet terrier beagle mix Ellie would love to test the treats!
cynthiagirl saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:55 pm
My girl Olive never does get her fill O Luv. And she does have a few good tricks she’ll do for treats.
zenmomma saysNovember 6, 2009 at 2:56 pm
Karma say “woof.”
Red Hamster saysNovember 6, 2009 at 3:05 pm
I have a furry grandogger….and I can’t believe I’m entering a contest to win dog treats for a granddog! Ummm, actually…we just spent a week in Texas BABYSITTING the granddog! Grandparents will do anything.
andrea saysNovember 6, 2009 at 3:05 pm
We had a white cat named Wilbur for 17 years! His nickname was Honky Cat 🙂
Now we have Pugs, one of them eats poo if he finds some, my daughter calls them Scooby snacks. Ew. So yeah, we’d love to win some real treats for sure!
Ruth saysNovember 6, 2009 at 3:28 pm
Please no milk for Snowflake. It hurts their tummies.
GrandeMocha saysNovember 6, 2009 at 3:31 pm
Cute kitty! I’m glad you aren’t giving her away. No dog here. ;(
Carole saysNovember 6, 2009 at 3:33 pm
Navarre, my pony sized German Shepherd, would love to sample some new treats. 🙂
caleal saysNovember 6, 2009 at 3:35 pm

trinity67 saysNovember 6, 2009 at 3:42 pm
Yep, most cats are actually lactose intolerant. I fed my cat milk once and she threw it up on me.
Samantha saysNovember 6, 2009 at 3:49 pm
The stray cat I took in now eats our dog’s food, despite us giving him the best cat food around. So, my dog could really use these treats!
Love the twinkle lights on the bar btw.
Sandra saysNovember 6, 2009 at 3:49 pm
Such a pretty kitty. The dog cracks me up.

Tree saysNovember 6, 2009 at 4:16 pm
I would love to stuff my stocking with your dog treats…. Bossy is not the only one who needs to stop typing and start sleeping.
Lauri saysNovember 6, 2009 at 4:24 pm
Tess the boxer would simply LURVE some new treats….and Tess’ favorite playmate in the whole world, Mady (her 11-year-old bestest friend), would LURVE to feed them to her…

Our dog Riley would LOVE so new tasty treats! Thanks for the giveaway!
Sarah saysNovember 6, 2009 at 4:32 pm
I know quite a few pups who would love some treats! 🙂
Amelia saysNovember 6, 2009 at 4:37 pm
Amelia has a sweet little Scottie dog who would love some treats!
sugarpie saysNovember 6, 2009 at 4:47 pm
I thought Lola was the only dog raiding the litter box for KitKat bars. If it will make it easier for you, just send the treats in the same package as the lemon super collider thingy. .
claire in AZ saysNovember 6, 2009 at 5:10 pm
This soon-to-be empty-nester is taking the plunge and getting a puppy soon! What a great welcome present!
Dawn in Austin saysNovember 6, 2009 at 5:12 pm
I have two dogs that fill my empty next now. An English bulldog, Phoebe and a Jack Russell Mutt, Zoe. They would love to sample some new tasty, good enough for people, treats.
Tim saysNovember 6, 2009 at 5:19 pm
My 2 year old lab/boxer would love those treats!
Christy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 5:28 pm
We give Chance (as in Sheriff John T. Chance) graham crackers that have sat around open too long as a treat. He’d be real uptown if he got bistro beef dog treats!
amy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 5:37 pm
Bossy, should have asked for names of dogs or something like that? And do we get to see the after picture of her new bob?
Brenlin saysNovember 6, 2009 at 5:40 pm
Brady gets cheerios now. He might like a change of pace.
Tami W saysNovember 6, 2009 at 5:46 pm
I sure wish my cats would go off to visit the neighbors every once in a while….
Debby saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:12 pm
I don’t even own a dog, but must enter (I’ll give it to my friends with dogs!)
Bush Babe saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:17 pm
What… no “cat chasing the dog” photos? You could put your pale American version of my “Black Dane versus black cat fiasco”?
Your cat looks lovely and sweet and gentle – mine is half-wild and leaves scars when she sits on your lap. Story of my life!
Laurie C saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:18 pm
I’m in…. or rather my 4 dogs…
Lyndsey saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:21 pm
My dog would have run and hide at the sight of a cat in such close proximity. None of that serious face stuff.
Chookooloonks saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:34 pm
Aw, hell. His Highness Mr. Rufus A. Pants wants a bit of this. We’re in.
Reeb saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:39 pm
Mickey Pickle says to ask Stella if she’s ever tried maple tree products: the helicopter-ish seeds with wings are in season and tasty right now, but the Best is the spring offering of the same trees: those dangly green flower clusters must be mighty wonderful. Mickey Pickle snarfs up as many fallen clusters as possible on every walk in the spring.
Mr Pickle would condescend to eat something not so directly from Nature, as the graphics on the bags charm him. He does go to work at the graphic design office every day, after all…
[From Reeb to Bossy: nice lighting and detail on the cat closeups. Honky looks great with face in cobalt blue bowls. And what a perfect name.]
joeinvegas saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:40 pm
Wow, look at all the people that want a little bit o’ love. Well, me too.
Jenni D. saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:47 pm
They’d probably give our wussy dog diarrhea, but what the heck. Throw our names into the hat!
mirela saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:48 pm
awwww, i so wished Snow Flake would stay with you!
April in CT saysNovember 6, 2009 at 6:55 pm
Stella would eat my dachshund Calvin nee’ appetizer in 2.4 seconds flat.
Mimi saysNovember 6, 2009 at 7:01 pm
My Marley dog would love those!! She’s got a half black and half white face and she’s white with black spots.
Miss Spoken saysNovember 6, 2009 at 7:07 pm
Dominic the Bulldog would love a snack.
Lisa saysNovember 6, 2009 at 7:51 pm
You make me laugh out loud.
sandra saysNovember 6, 2009 at 8:16 pm
I am sure my dog would love these treats. He pretty much eats anything, currently he is devouring a sock. I love the package of the treats, so different!
jp saysNovember 6, 2009 at 8:19 pm
Bossy I would so take that cute kittie, SnowFlake, White Honkey whatever…………………..
Tough times in our neck of the woods, always happy ti have a new , happy face!
Catherine McP saysNovember 6, 2009 at 8:21 pm
What a funny story. Little Petey the wonder dog probably would eat those Bit O Luvs..I would if they taste like Bit O Honey!
Melinda saysNovember 6, 2009 at 8:36 pm
my doggies would love a bit o luv
Diane G saysNovember 6, 2009 at 8:46 pm
ScootieDog would woof these down for sure! And I love the Bit O Luv illustrations~~ the teeth! : )
Dana saysNovember 6, 2009 at 8:54 pm
Riley the Big Black Dog would love some special treats in her stocking.
Elizabeth @ Table4Five saysNovember 6, 2009 at 8:57 pm
Our dog’s name is Elvis. No, really. We inherited him from my MIL, who was, of course, a big fan of Elvis Presley. Elvis the dog loves treats of any kind and would love to win this!
So…..does this mean you’re getting a cat? 🙂
operagal saysNovember 6, 2009 at 8:59 pm
OG has 3 cats who would very likely eat the dog treats. SnowFlake would be very welcome here.
ally tart check saysNovember 6, 2009 at 9:00 pm
no dogs in this household; please don’t pick me! just wanted to share that i snickered quietly at the post until i saw the photo with the caption about your jethro backyard and i couldn’t hold the squee and it scared my husband and he thinks i’m a lunatic but oh, sweet sister bossy, i love this site.
Lizzy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 9:06 pm
My old Gus would love this stuff. Might be a bit high flaluting for him but he’ll take it.
ellen saysNovember 6, 2009 at 9:49 pm
I have 10, yes, ten, cats. Four are litter mates, two are their siblings, and rosie picked us one day as a stray kitten, and tabitha is my hubs oldest from new orleans, and then Peter and Scout are rescue brothers. Oh, and CiCi lives upstairs with my tenants/daughter and bf, and a gorgeous, huge, hairy, collie Max. I’m exhausted, and I didn’t even mention the bf’s ferrets. Oh, and I rescued two lost dogs last week from the dangers of 95 ….. ME.
Shelley saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:07 pm
My dogs, Bo and Luke (I know!) would love these. Luke especially, since right now his favorite things to eat are books and papers. Beagles are dumb. Just sayin’.
Cupcake Murphy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:19 pm
My dog Cooper uses treat like those in his Leftover Dumpster Mexican Food Lying In The Street casserole.
Ro saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:34 pm
My girls would love these. Now what about your son? I love the pic of Stella giving you the you are out of your mind look.
NellyFrittata saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:41 pm
My yellow lab Nell will sit up for a treat but will chase a cat…or a squirrel…or a stick…well, you get the picture.
Kathy saysNovember 6, 2009 at 10:51 pm
My dog needs these so she will forgive me for the bath I just gave her.
JoAnn saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:05 pm
My great dane–Duke–would love some treats!
amyinbc saysNovember 6, 2009 at 11:44 pm
I did the same to our next door neighbors cat when we first moved in here 11 years ago 🙂 Thought he was a stray as he always slept on our front porch. Turns out he had always hung out there as the house had been empty a few years.
The animal freak that I am kept feeding him lunch meat and leaving a bowl of water out there. Ready to adopt until I realized where the little actor cat lived!
Great cat, passed away 2 years ago.
Robyn Taylor saysNovember 7, 2009 at 12:03 am
I know two very good dogs who like treats (really, very, very good dogs).
maria from nj saysNovember 7, 2009 at 12:04 am
I had a Snow Flake but her name was Blanche. Can always feed my friend’s dog.
ranchgirl saysNovember 7, 2009 at 12:17 am
I share my home with exactly two hundred and thirty-seven pounds o’ canine. It comes in the form of three different bodies. WE NEED US SOME LUV BITS!!
phd in yogurtry saysNovember 7, 2009 at 12:22 am
Arf Arf Arf !!!!
And Honky? Harf Harf Harf!
Rochelle saysNovember 7, 2009 at 12:23 am
My dogs, Mildew and Yogurt, would LOVE these! And then they would nap.
Melanie @ Mel, A Dramatic Mommy saysNovember 7, 2009 at 12:28 am
I’m laughing my butt off at re-naming the cat Honkey. I was thinking, “let me guess, it’s name will have something to do with snow. Obvious much?” Honkey is so much better!
PS- I just showed the picture to my son and asked what he’d name the cat. I was hoping he’d say Whitey, but no such luck. If we had that cat his name would be Bingo.
kelly saysNovember 7, 2009 at 12:39 am
oooh my monkey dog would love that! and my monkey baby would love to fee him.
come on random number generator!
bouncy saysNovember 7, 2009 at 1:40 am
ooooh, bunkerella would love these!
Birdbrain saysNovember 7, 2009 at 2:19 am
Bandit the neighborhood cat comes to call and Jenny, our Border Terrier goes nuts. She and her best friend Reggie (nee Veggie), a mini Schnauzer recently treed Bandit. I came to the rescue and all it right with the world.
Pamela V. saysNovember 7, 2009 at 5:25 am
Bossy is so funny. Love my dogs and really looking for a healthy, tasty treat for my three best friends.
Ms. Tart saysNovember 7, 2009 at 8:52 am
I know my little Elsie would luv it.
Barb saysNovember 7, 2009 at 9:26 am
we don’t give our dogs treats, we let them sleep on our beds, dig out of the trash, feed them from the table instead. but i’d take a bag a treats for my kids…just kidding.
Tracy saysNovember 7, 2009 at 10:14 am
The beast would love some new treats…thanks.
dgm saysNovember 7, 2009 at 11:27 am
Darnit! I was hoping you would get to keep Honky. Note to file: cow’s milk is baaaaaad for kitty bellies. Don’t believe the cartoons. Also, mice don’t actually have a little archway in the baseboard that leads to a furnished mouse house inside the walls.
Amy saysNovember 7, 2009 at 11:46 am
I-ummm, I mean RubyAnn-my Pug-never win anything! Today is my lucky day!
aly saysNovember 7, 2009 at 1:40 pm
my dog penny wants these treats!!
josh saysNovember 7, 2009 at 2:00 pm
DOG TREATZ FOR MEEEE!
Lorraine saysNovember 7, 2009 at 2:51 pm
Bella and Buddy would love some new treats. Buddy will eat just about anything, and Bella only buries the stuff she steals from me…thus the pack of instant oatmeal in the palm tree and 1/2 baguette in the couch cushions…
annie_a saysNovember 7, 2009 at 3:15 pm
will the Random Number Generator consider readers living north of the border?
because if so, I’d like to participate, please. My Gloden Retriever puppy would surely appreciate those treats, since he appreciates everything, including cat food, soap, dirty underwear, plastic containers, baseboard mouldings, kitchen chairs, goose poo, etc…
Colette saysNovember 7, 2009 at 6:11 pm
My Larry thinks that Stella is “Oh so sexy!!” He’s volunteering to be her “knight in furry armor”!
Lydia saysNovember 7, 2009 at 7:43 pm
My Leo luvs treats.
barbara saysNovember 7, 2009 at 10:27 pm
Mabel The Wonder dog could use some Bit O Luv. As could we all.
AmberStar saysNovember 7, 2009 at 11:08 pm
I don’t need any bit o luv…well, mainly because we don’t have a dog. We don’t even have a cat at the moment. Our neighborhood roamer finally settled at our house and after years and years she disappeared. We have not been able to find anything about her. We were sad as everything. The reason I thought of the treats was for my cousin who has a gigantor dog…I think it is a bloodhound that she loves so much. My cousin doesn’t make a lot of money working very hard and if she happened to be chosen by the random number generator it would be nice for her hound to have something good to eat…like that treat.
Mary T saysNovember 7, 2009 at 11:36 pm
Our Great Pyrenees, Aggie, would love a bag of treats. After all, she is a hard working dog, protecting our goat herd from coyotes.
susan saysNovember 8, 2009 at 1:19 am
Mags, the new golden retriever puppy, loves Bossy.
suzr saysNovember 8, 2009 at 2:28 am
awww, Honkey nee Snow Flake looks just like my first kitty, Muffin.
My “neice” Sugarbear only likes me when I have treats or tennis balls, so…
faith saysNovember 8, 2009 at 6:40 am
I have two basset’s that LOVE gourmet treats. because country dogs know their treats.
Jarrard saysNovember 8, 2009 at 12:34 pm
I have three bits of love here that would love some of those bits!
Angie saysNovember 8, 2009 at 12:56 pm
My German Shepherd puppy, Roman, would love some of these treats! Thanks for sharing, Stella!
Carrie saysNovember 8, 2009 at 1:47 pm
Dog treats? *squeal*
Mrs. Missus saysNovember 8, 2009 at 2:27 pm
My very own great dane, Gerti, and her pit bull sister, Stella, would love to sample some delicious treats. Perhaps this time they will actually taste them instead of just inhaling.
Kaedra saysNovember 8, 2009 at 8:32 pm
Our little Ringo would like to try some.
Leslie saysNovember 9, 2009 at 12:29 am
Hunter the boxer would loved to swallow these whole. And maybe give the kids’ stuff animals and the sons slippers a break for awhile.
We had a white cat that looked just like Snow Flake and our creative minds named him – Thomas.
sue saysNovember 9, 2009 at 12:38 am
Dell the lab loves new treats!
Kristy saysNovember 9, 2009 at 2:17 am
This is a comment. Honestly.
kelly saysNovember 9, 2009 at 3:51 am
Lola would love free dog treats.
Jill saysNovember 9, 2009 at 8:45 am
I don’t normally splurge on organic dog treats, but I would if Stella was my dog.
