A treat for a beagle from Japan

My fellow bloggers will know that my humans have a travelling bug. Apart from this beagle, travelling the world is one of their passions in life. Luckily for me, they come home with treats for me, well, most of the time anyway. They recently came back from Japan with a suitcase full of delicious treats...of which only, two packets are for me. The rest, they say are for human consumption. Such piggies!

In the midst of the souvenier and delectable food stores, my humans stumbled across this lovely pet store at the Nakamise Market in Tokyo. I reckon, I've trained them well to spot pet stores. The pet store is the one on the right.

They also have lovely dog figurines. Did you see the beagle? Sure looks like me.

Anyway, this beagle was able to sniff that the packages contains treats that this beagle loves. So, in my excitement...

My humans said that that jumping on the treat was unacceptable behaviour for a lady beagle. Who wants to be a lady? I just want the food! Still, house rules are house rules...

Finally, after one suspenseful minute of sitting, I was rewarded for good behaviour. It took me less than 2 seconds to tear the wrapping apart.

My humans got me tasty pig ear treat, at least that's what they think they bought. My humans don't speak Japanese, and the Japanese shop owner doesn't speak English...Still, from the packaging it sure looks like a treat for a beagle, don't you think?

Gotta go, got myself a pig ear to chew on for a while...

P.S. My humans say due to my recent weight gain from my stay at the Puppy Cottage, they're rationing my treats. Not only do I get one pig ear today, I only get to open the second package at a time to be determined later. Sigh!

Kess, you've trained your humans well, now they know how to spot a pet store in a crowded street, it's terrific.
I saw your figure on the same shelf with me, see, I'm next to you buddy.
My humans love to travel too, that means I have to stay home waiting for them. Sigh!
Love ya lots

That is so furry wrong!

Treats are to be khonsumed - not saved!

It's tough to wait, esp when you can smell the treat right there. Enjoy your treats.

Hi, Kess!
Yummy treats for you!
I am not so sure about that rationing thing but... on the possitive side, they will last more!
Kisses and hugs

Wow - a treat all the way from Japan!! You really have very thoughtful humans!!

My humans have the travelling bug too, although it's harder now with Paul's training and work hours to find the time to get away. And when they do go, they can't bring any treats back for me (not food ones anyway) coz Australia & NZ has such strict quarantine laws about food! :-(

Wow Kess, you've got treats all the way from Japan? Lucky lucky you!

Princess Patches said...

Kess, we're sorry they're rationing your treats! Isn't that animal abuse? We have to suffer the same treatment. We have both lost weight and our mom wants to keep us this way. We get just as many treats, they just are way smaller!
