Fishy Scales and Waggy Tails Round Two…

So the other week I received a jar of Armstrong’s Twisted Fish salmon treats for the canine members of the house, and boy were they excited!

Molly was especially keen as she has already had the pleasure of knowing what this little jar of goodness contains having been my taste tester for my earlier blog post.  I gave them one each at the time to stem to relentless jumping and scraping of my legs to get at what was in my hand – this proved only to encourage more jumping, scratching and so forth with a little competitive growling thrown in (the dogs, not me!).  Basically they went mad for them, and as I put the jar away, their little faces and ears seemed to drop!  A few days later  I began to organise getting a few pictures of the pair of them enjoying their treats.  Arnold in particular LOVED this portion of the task as he scrambled around, sniffing like a truffle pig, looking for more and more treats! I think he messed up the first few shots on purpose to get more…

As we grow increasingly aware of the additives and preservatives in our own food, so we should pay more attention to what we feed our beloved pets – they are after all an extension of our own family and I love to try and feed my two the most wholesome, natural food and treats that I can.  Armstrong’s Twisted Fish are a no brainer, you can’t get any more natural!  If Molly and Arnold are extra good doggies from now until Christmas, they could be finding Twisted Fish treats in their Santa stockings (yes, they have proper Santa stockings at Christmas and yes, Santa Dog visits too you know!) 😀

You can purchase Armstrong’s Twisted Fish through their website, for news and events updates they also have a Facebook Page  and can be found stocked at The Salty Dog in Bangor.


Fishy Scales and Waggy Tails

Last weekend I popped into the wonderful Salty Dog in Bangor for a spot of  lunch (their seafood chowder is to die for).  Following an ample serving of foodie satisfaction, I went to see what local products the hotel had on offer.  Sourcing all their ingredients locally, The Salty Dog are an excellent example of promoting homegrown – using and selling beautiful produce from across the Province.  Something in particular caught my eye as it’s not at all expected in a Hotel restaurant, or any ‘human’ eatery for that matter!  I was looking at Armstrong’s Twisted Fish Dog Treats with growing curiosity.  Reading the little information leaflet, I learned they are made from 100% natural dehydrated fish skins (cod, haddock and salmon).  No additives, colours or preservatives in these bad boys, or should I say good boys!  I took a bag of treats home , excited to see the reactions of my Jack Russell Terrier Molly.

I open the bag and inside are an abundance of the fishy twiglets, Molly is very interested at this stage.  She circles my feet enthusiastically with her head up, nose stuck in the air and looking hopeful for something to fall out of the bag and into her mouth.

After further inspection (I’m pretty sure I too could eat these treats and get away with it), I lay a few out for Molly to sniff over….

Sniffing, sniffing and result – she seems to like this one!





They’re a hit!  Nice work Armstrong’s, Twisted Fish Treats from now on!
