Word Whiz Wednesday #11: Gus Biscuits

Posted on February 16, 2011


According to Gus, biscuit was an easy word to learn.  When he was a puppy, every time he went outside to go do it, he was rewarded with a biscuit.  Not surprisingly, Gus Biscuits are his absolute favorite type…they’re named after him!

Several years ago while perusing the dog aisle at Whole Foods, we happened upon these Whole Paws Tiny Bite Dog Biscuits.  Not only were they perfectly Gus-sized, the model dog on the box looked a lot like a certain dogger we know.

Yay for no artificial colors or preservatives!

Am I the only one who looks at these biscuits and think the ends look like chubby baby buns?  I giggle every time I grab one out of the pantry.  I’m really not immature.  I swear. πŸ˜‰

Even though these are small, we normally break them in half before we give them to Gus.  He thinks he deserves LOTS of treats throughout the day and never seems to notice the size.  It’s a great way for us to minimize the number of goodies he eats without sacrificing his love for treats.


Isn’t the resemblance between Gus and the cute Peke on the Gus Biscuit box uncanny?!  We’ve always thought it looked like Gus, but couldn’t believe the similarity when we dug up this photo and changed it to black and white.  Of course, we think Gus is 100 times cuter than the model dog, but we’re a little biased. πŸ˜‰


While browsing around Whole Foods’ website, we found a recipe for Homemade Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats.  It sounds pretty yummy!


Thank you to everyone who helped us decide on a blanketID tag design in our post last week.  Gingham Orange was the clear favorite, with Scotty and Bounce following closely behind.  Obviously, I couldn’t miss an opportunity to schedule the results. πŸ˜‰  We can’t wait for it to arrive!


We hope you all have a fantastic hump day.  The temperature in San Antonio has been in the upper 70’s and sunny all week.  It’s starting to feel like spring!

It’s Wednesday and time to stop over at BlogPaws for their Wordless Wednesday Linky.  We’ll update our post with the code when it’s available.  Happy Hopping!
