Animal crackers run free

The Barnum’s Animal box just got new art. The animals are now out of their cages and roaming the veld with acacia trees in the background and a bright sun overhead!

In case you don’t remember, here is the old box. When I was a kid, it had a string rather than a handle and prominent bars.

The article elaborates:

PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman says she’s celebrating the box redesign for the cultural change it represents.

“The new box for Barnum’s Animals crackers perfectly reflects that our society no longer tolerates the caging and chaining of wild animals for circus shows,” she said.

Happy Birthday, Robert!

Robert Bruce will be 3 on the 19th! At least he is according to his paperwork from the Pierce County Humane Society. They have a birth date that I assume is the day he was found backdated to however old they thought he he was. The really cute part is that his breed is listed as “little brown dog.” I guess they don’t see many Chinooks. He has lived with us since June 6th of 2007.
I’ll make Rob’s favorite: oatmeal peanut butter cookies. When I made these last year I left out the wheat germ because I don’t keep that around and just added a little more flour and oatmeal. They were as popular with the humans as the dogs and we ate as many as Rob did!

He will also get some new skineez. Freya ate most of these when he wasn’t looking.

I’m also making Freya’s favorite: peanut butter bark. My friend, Molly, made this last Christmas and it was Freya’s absolute favorite treat ever. For anyone who doesn’t know this yet… We lost our Freya just before Thanksgiving. She was a beautiful dog and a wonderful friend. Thank you for all the kind notes and condolences.
