One of the greatest puppy treats ever invented has got to be a Purina product called Frosty Paws. What are Frosty Paws? Since you have read this far, I will let you in on a super duper secret. Frosty Paws is ice cream for puppy dogs. Alright, it’s not really ice cream, but one cup is guaranteed to make a bad dog good for at least a few minutes and a good dog even more behaved.
For the greater part of her life, Yalu adored her Frosty Paws. She knew what the container looked like. Upon seeing it, she would immediately stop what she was doing and come to a patient sitting position before the person holding her treat. There was no tail wagging only an intense stare as if that Frosty Paws cup was the last one in the whole wide world.
Receiving her treat, Yalu would scamper off to a private place. Once there, she would sit and begin a reverent series of licks. How many licks does it take to get to the bottom of a Frosty Paws? The same question has been asked of the Tootsie Roll lollipop and like the Tootsie Roll, the world will never know.
There was a time where if I was a little quicker with the camera, I could have had a wonderful picture. She has just completed a Frosty Paws and lifted her head up with the cup stuck to her snout. Yalu looked like a bird with a white beak. I was never able to recreate that moment. The big lesson taken for me moment was to always be compared with a camera.
On the health front, Frosty Paws contains proteins, minerals, and vitamins that can be read on the box for those interested in reading the ingredients listed on the side of a box. This most wonderful treat can be found in most grocery stores in the ice cream section. One would think Petco and PetSmart would have this wonderful product. After searching both websites, I came up with goose eggs in that department.
The most difficult decision concerning Frosty Paws was if Yalu would receive the original or peanut butter. Both worked in her world. She loved her Frosty Paws year around. How nice it was having a treat capable of bringing so much joy to my cute brown dog. I knew she adored her Frosty Paws because after finishing one, she would approach, press her head against my chest and let out a happy puppy huff.
