Tank is a lovable, huggable, snuggable sweet boy who loves nothing more than to curl up with someone on the couch and snore the day away. When he is up and playing outside, or happily chewing on an Amelia Biscuit Company Cannoli (his favourite treat in the whole wide world), he always has an eye on his sister, Izzie. She may be older and tougher than he is, she rules the dogs in the family with an iron paw, but she is a tiny Chihuahua senior lady who just might need protection or some help. You could say he's always ready to be her Boston knight in shining armour.
With that in mind, Tank's gift has a few of his favourite things and some to share with his little sister. We call it the "Merry Sharing Goodie Bag". It's treats for two!
This gift includes:
Treaty Bites (Peanut Butter flavour shown, his favourite) $9.99 - $10.99
Greenies Dental Chews, Petite size $10.59
Holiday Cannoli 2-pack $5.50
Individual Holiday Cannoli $2.75 each
Amelia Biscuit Company Beef Liver 225g bag $19.99 each
Boreal Canned Soft Food, Wild Salmon Flavour $3.19 each
Tank loves Peanut Butter, and so a big bag of Treaty Bites gives him the flavour and a good crunchy chew without the sticky mess. Sometimes for Izzie he will even chew or suck on the cookies until soft, so she can enjoy them too (she has very few teeth left). When he's not chewing on Treaty Bites, he likes a Greenie to keep those chompers clean and in good health. Tank needs to keep his teeth in top-notch shape so he can enjoy his favourite treat, the one with the most gnawing satisfaction his mouth can handle - the Amelia Biscuit Company Cannoli. He loves these so, so, so, so, so very much; he will NOT share them with Izzie or any dog. He runs to his crate and hides them, or he lays in there and chews away happily ALONE. Tank not only wants a 2-pack, but any empty spaces in his gift he wants filled cannoli. It's cannoli-paw-looza! And Tank, like many dogs, also loves stinky things, and the Amelia Biscuit Company Beef Liver is pretty smelly. He also picked the liver because it's easy to break into small pieces for Izzie, and she really likes the stinky liver taste too. And, if you haven't guessed it, the can of Boreal Soft Food in Wild Salmon Flavour is for Izzie (and her alone). Tank wants to make sure his sister has healthy, yummy meals that are easy for her tiny toothless mouth to devour. He's such a good brother!
Tank suggested wrapping all of this into a nice holiday gift bag, something simple and easy (it's just going to get eaten, and that is where the REAL joy is). Or, his other suggestion was to warp it all in cello with a big, soft, warm blanket, something for those couch snuggling times.
As for giving this holiday season, Tank suggests the Chihuahua Rescue and Transport. Izzie and other Chihuahua's in his family have come from this rescue, and so he has seen firsthand how they change lives. Check out their website for ways you can help them rescue dogs in need and find them furever homes.
Just a reminder, the Amelia Biscuit Company store in Paris is open every Sunday until Christmas, 11am - 4:30pm. Pop on in for your pet needs and wishes, and you just might see one of our biscuit girls in the store picking out items for their Christmas wish list.
