Hunting for Gator Treats

Bentley: “I’m so hungry that I could eat an alligator!”
Pierre: “All we need is our boat and some really big worms. We can catch us a gator down on the bayou.”
Bentley: “No problem, dude. We can dig up some worms out in the yard. Let’s stop by the sweet potato patch on the way. There is something about having gator that just screams sweet potatoes.”

Me: “Where are you boys going in such a hurry? I was about to show y’all the new treats we received from Think!Dog®. I have a feeling that you’re going to love them.”
Pierre: “OMD! It’s some Sweet Potato Soft Chew Snacks and Louisiana Alligator Jerky with Sweet Potatoes! You must be psycho; that is just what we were discussing.”
Me: “I think you mean psychic, but yes, it is quite a coincidence. Would you like to try one?”

Bentley: “I thought that you’d never ask! Mmmm, soft chewy sweet potatoes are a wholesome treat that I can’t help but love. I’m glad to see they are made in the U.S.A.”
Pierre: “It says these are 100% vegetarian without wheat, corn or soy. An all-natural treat is sweet to eat, but I want to try the gator and tater! Hey, that rhymed; I'm a poet and didn’t know it!” #SorryNotSorry
Me: “The Louisiana Alligator Jerky and Sweet Potatoes seem made especially for us on the bayou. Alligator is one of our state’s renewable resources. The seafood restaurants across our state serve alligator. It is delicious, so I’m sure y’all will love the taste of these.”
Two penniess used to compare size of treat
Bentley: “If you want my two cents, they are terrific and the perfect size for training. This recipe calls for alligator, ground potatoes, maple syrup, sweet potatoes, natural smoke flavor, garlic, and rosemary as the main ingredients. Seriously, what’s not to love? It’s a lot easier than catching our own gator for snacks.”
Pierre: “And safer…although I’d enjoy a new pair of alligator shoes.”
Bentley: “You can forget about that. All of the gators that I’ve seen aren’t wearing any shoes. Their feet look like these treats except much bigger. Mom, it says here on the bag that a Basset Hound sized dog can have 7 – 9 of these a day. According to my count, you are holding out on me.”

Me: “Here is one more. We will put them up until later when you are starving for another snack.”
Bentley: “Sigh…see ya later alligator!”
