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!
