We love giving our dog treats for Christmas. This year, I decided to crochet a treat basket to hold all of our dog’s delicious goodies!

Crocheted basket with dog treats inside. Complete with a dog bone applique.

This year, Daisy is getting BLUE Santa Snacks® for Christmas. I don’t have to worry about what is in Blue Dog Treats. I know they are safe for Daisy to eat.

Daisy has a sensitivity to corn, soy, and wheat. I know that when I purchase Blue dog treats and dog food, we don’t have to worry about her getting sick due to her sensitive stomach.

Daisy Loves her Blue Santa Snacks!

Another great thing about BLUE Santa Snacks…there is no Chicken/Poultry by-product meals, artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors!
