A few weeks ago I posted about a Puppy Prep Kit that I was making with Milk-Bone® products like Pup-Peroni, Milo’s Kitchen and Milk-Bone® treats. At the time, I was torn. Though I wanted a new puppy badly, I knew that there are shelters crammed with abandoned puppies and dogs that need our help!
So, I had a hard decision to make. But first… I wanted to put together my Puppy Prep Kit so that it was ready to go, no matter what option I chose!
I shopped at Wal-mart because, let’s face it, they have the selection and price that I am looking for. So I headed to the Pets section and rediscovered all of the wonderful things that puppies need – treats, food, toys, a collar, a leash… and so on. I picked up the Milk-Bone® Soft and Chewy treats, Milo’s Kitchen’s Chicken Meatballs, Pup-Peroni treats and more. My idea was that if I gave it to the shelter, the puppies would have something special and if I kept it, I would have soft treats to break up and train my little him or her with.
I got home and took all of my goodies, the puppy bed, the leash and collar and the toys I received and put them all together. I think, and not just because I made it, that it is the BEST puppy prep kit ever! Anyone would be so happy to get it!
And do you know who else thinks so too???…
MY NEW PUPPY!
Yes, I did it! I got online and found myself an 8 week old male Bichon Frise that was headed to a shelter by owners who got him as a gift and could not keep him because their lease did not allow dogs!

Granted, the shelters need help too, so I wrote my usual check and mailed it the day after I got little Tag – or Bailey – or Bentley – or Bailey Flower Tag Bailey. It depends on which child you ask!
But, I am really glad we have him and I am glad I made this choice. He would have certainly ended up in a shelter and was in need of care. He was covered in fleas – I have never seen so many fleas on a dog – had worms and needed some love. I think the previous owners loved him but he was just a lot to take care of – as most puppies are – which is why they end up in shelters and the check I wrote is so important!
But, in our home at least, we are super excited to hand the Milk-Bone Puppy Prep kit over to my new little boy! And now I have fulfilled my want to rescue a Bichon Frise and to add to my four legged family!
Merry Christmas to me!
