Benny might be blind, but he can find great treats and good fun from miles away. His nose knows how to find those! He's like an RCMP dog, but instead of drugs his nose is trained to find rubber toys and meaty treats. His Mum has his Christmas gift stored at the Amelia Biscuit Company Store with Auntie Jen, to keep it safely away from that powerful nose! Benny loves toys as much as he loves treats, after all if you're gonna play hard, you gotta have healthy, yummy treats to snack on, to get your energy back so you can play hard some more. With toys, he especially loves ones he can thrap, shake, slobber all over and chew on, and eventually rip to shreds. He goes absolutely nuts for a squeaker, a crazed man on a mission. He grins from ear to ear when a toy is totally destroyed and the stuffing is EVERYWHERE.
So, his grrreat gift idea for this Christmas is something he thinks every dog will love - young or old, sighted or blind, toy destroyer or light player.
He calls his perfect gift the "Totally Awesome Treats 'n Toys Fun Pack".
This gift includes:
Primal 5.5oz Freeze Dried (Assorted flavours; Beef Shown) $13.99
Hugglehounds Penguin $24.99
Amelia Biscuit Company Blueberry Vegan Treats $5.99

This & That Canadian Bacon & Apple Antler Treats $9.99
JW Good Cuz, Medium $7.99
Benny loves his raw food, especially with freshly baked squash, oats and some salmon oil, and the Primal brand has an excellent reputation and some fantastic recipes. He typically eats their Raw Frozen Rabbit Formula, but when he travels to Grandma and Grandpa's house during the holidays, it's better to take the Freeze-Dried Raw Diet as there's no room in the fridge or freezer! The freeze-dried formula can sit on the counter or in the cupboard, so there's no worry that Grandpa will accidentally cook it as an appetizer. Benny's treat jar always has This & That Antler treats. He likes all the flavours, but the Canadian Bacon & Apple is his favourite. They are easy to break and chew, which makes them perfect for the guy with few teeth, and the ground antler in them is a source of glucosamine. The other staple in Benny's life is the Amelia Biscuit Company Beef Liver. It's the treat he will do anything for; if you have a few pieces of beef liver in your hand he will go outside to poop in the pouring rain or blowing snow, he will get in the tub for a bath, and he will sit still to have his toenails trimmed. The Blueberry Vegan Treats he picked out for his sister's gift. Plus, he figures, it keeps her out of his awesome meaty treats! As for toys, Benny loves to get a big one and a small one. He loves the JW Cuz balls, and he has a ton of them at home, all broken and squeakerless. It's the one ball he will play with for months, even after he breaks it. The price is also very reasonable, and the rubber is non-toxic. The big toy, well it has to be tough, somewhat floppy, and with a good squeaker. Rosie Bird told him about Hugglehounds the last time they played together, and they both agreed the penguin was their favourite critter. These toys are plush yet strong and durable. They are made with Tuffut Technology™ - they have Specially Bonded Layers to provide the body armor protecting the toy. It's the perfect toy for Benny the Destroyer! He cannot wait to try it!
When it comes to giving this holiday season, Benny wants you to check out Boston Terrier Rescue Canada. Benny was rescued, as was his sister, and although they both didn't come from BTRC they know firsthand the wonerful and important work that rescues do. Both Benny and his sister have done fundraising in the past for BTRC, and met many great furever friends. BTRC helps Boston Terriers (purebred and mixed breed) from all over Canada find happy, healthy, loving, furever homes. Check out their website for ways you can help out or donate. Right now there's a Giving Tree posted that you can help decorate.
