This post is NOT for the squeamish (and DON'T say we didn't warn you!!!)

BOOO! Happy Halloween everyone!!! We think you'll find this post to be very apropos for the big holiday today!

Yesterday, Mom and Dad gave me my super ultra special present that they picked out at Jungle Jim's!

A while back, Apollo's mom had mentioned that she was going to be ordering some chicken feet for Apollo...(which we thought was WEEEEIRD!) so mom started looking into it more. Turns out...chicken feet are a GREAT snack for dogs because they're cartilage (not splintery bone)! Click HERE and HERE if you want to read a bit about this.

Dad opened the package and picked out a nice juicy FOOT for me to try!
MMMMMM chickeny goodness!

I wasn't sure about this, since I'd never had anything of this texture before...

But then I figured out that it was YUMMY...

and CHEWY!


Mom kept making rude comments about how GROSS my new treat was, so I hightailed it out of the kitchen where I could enjoy my foot in PEACE!
What exactly does she think dogs ate for centuries before they invented Eukanuba or Royal Canin? Sheesh!!!!

Here's a cool video of me going to town on the FOOT! Ignore mom's color commentary.

Mom says she's going to let me gnaw on one tonight during trick or treating! She figured that might give the 'hood kids something to freak out about!

Happy Halloweenie everyone!!!! Check back tomorrow for COSTUME PICS!!!!

Old Family Folk Lore: When everyone is in NYC, we LOVE to go for Dim Sum in Chinatown. This is quite an adventure, as the servers do not speak a lick of English, and 99% of the food is indescribable. My ex was always a fearless eater, but there was one dish even he could not abide by:
Look for an upcoming post on the topic......

Mom to some random Banana & Hot Dog.....

Yummmy, Happy Halloween!

Salinger dude! Mom couldn't even look at the pictures. She is so grossed out and I think she may vomit! Great job dude!

Those feet look yummy to me but there's no way Mom would let me have them. Maybe I need to take a road trip to Ohio to get some.

Oh Salinger! I'm so glad my Mommy shared the info with your Mommy. Yes, my Mommy placed an order with Moody Meats (local organic farmer) for 24 chicken feet. Not only is it cartiledge, which is good and safe; but it is also high in natural glucosamine, which is GREAT in treating and preventing arthritis and hip dysplasia. I LOVE eating my chicken feet too! But Mommy makes me eat it in the backyard, where she can't see it. She says my eating the nails is the worst part for her. I say MMMM, gives it some crunch! Haha!
