We Won Frosty Paws!

Love and a Six-Foot Leash had a giveaway back in January featuring Frosty Paws made by Purina/Nestle. Of course I entered, and hey we actually won! We received the Frosty Paw coupons and the cute little dog mascot back in February. I know, I know, that was SOO long ago! But I wanted to wait until warmer weather was upon us before I gave the dogs some ice cream treats, and I had a hard time finding them at first. I'm sure the dogs wouldn't have minded, but it just didn't seem appropriate in my head :).

This was our prize! Well and the coupons but I already redeemed those! :)

I decided to let Bourbon have the first taste since he is the oldest :). I don't think I would feed these inside unless you had easy to clean floors or maybe served it in a bowl. It does look like regular ice cream, but I have to admit I did not taste it. It comes in two flavors: original and peanut butter. I busted open the original box first.

Bourbon dug right in...

With Bourbon's obvious vote of approval, I decided to let Baron have the next taste. :) I took Baron outside and put him on the tie-out and brought out a dog bowl to put the ice cream in so this time I didn't have to hold it. I thought I would be smart and unwrap the ice cream completely before giving it to Baron. Well that might not have been my best idea...

He horked it down like there was no tomorrow. I don't think he even tasted it!!

Sadly Monday and Rookie will not get to taste test the Frosty Paws because they are on special diets and there is a lot of crap in those ice cream things :). Vito will be getting his share in a few days...after all he did just have a frosty!!!

If you aren't a stickler for ingredients, you should pick up these special treats for your pup! I think I'll be making my own version at home, that way Monday and Rookie can partake as well :)


  1. Thanks for the warning about the ingredients. I mix 100% pure pumpkin (canned) with plain yogurt - I buy a big can and a big container of the yogurt - put them in ice cube trays, and the dogs love them.

    I'm going to make this tomorrow, but I want to add banana and blueberries.

    1. My dogs would love that and I always have pumpkin on hand, I will have to mix some of that up this weekend! Thanks for the tip :)

  2. I make my own here too. One large tub of yogurt. One ripe banana. Two large spoonfuls of peanut putter. Blend and freeze. Dogs say yummy!

    1. My dogs will pretty much do anything for peanut butter :)
