Donating a New Puppy Kit with Milk-Bone® Dog Treats #ILoveMyk9 #CBias

Last week my son and I took a trip to Walmart to buy Milk-Bone®, Pup-Peroni and Milo's Kitchen dog treats along with some other items for a new puppy. You can read my story my story about my dog and see our shopping trip here.

My black lab "Kosha" as my son calls her is one of the sweetest, happy, obedient dogs I have ever had. And over the last 25 years I have had many breeds of dogs. She has been in our home since she was a tiny puppy. She is my side kick and for a few years my "baby" until my son was born. My son and her are best pals. They jump, dance and run together all over the place. She adores him just as much as he does her. My son loves to feed her dog food and give her treats. She is a Milk-Bone® dog. She loves her "cookies" just as much as my son loves Chocolate Chip cookies, and he is a cookie monster! They both could spend all afternoon eating their favorite treats if I let them.

Over the weekend we almost lost our sweet dog! We have a rickety fence on one part of our yard that finally fell over after a windy night and my dog got out. She is not really a runner when it comes to being outside and thankfully so. One of our awesome neighbors took her to a local vet. (Still cant figure out which neighbor it was but THANK U to whoever it was!) When we woke up that morning and my son asked for "Kosha" I opened the door to call her. Normally she comes running to us as soon as she hears me. There was nothing, no bark, no loud trampling noise as she runs, just silence. My son had a panicked look on his face and I was very puzzled. I had no clue the fence on the back part of our house was down. After looking around and realizing what happened we got dressed and were getting ready to go look for her. I looked at my phone on the way out the door and saw there was a message. I almost was going to listen later since we needed to go look for her but I wanted to see who it was. I am so glad I listened because it was a Vet near by calling to say they had our dog and found our info from scanning her micro chip! I was over the moon happy that she was safe and so grateful that we micro chipped her as a puppy.

My son and dog have been pals since he was born!

I grabbed her new collar we got her for Christmas (this was a time for presents!) and some dog treats and we all drove over to the vet to pick her up. When she saw us and my son she wagged her tail like crazy and my son yelled her name and hugged her. It was a very Homeward Bound moment lol. Never have I been more happy to have spent an extra bit of money on micro chipping her. If we would have lost our sweet dog it would have been so sad, and at Christmas time. We thanked the vet and we were given a vague description of our dogs rescuer and took our "Kosha" home.

I know she will be getting a stocking full of Milk-Bone® this year!!!

Getting ready to put together our Puppy Kit Gift

I liked how this all looked but then thought the red stuffing would be a puppy no no

I decided to not include the red festive packing stuff since I am a sure a puppy would try to eat it.

As a frugal Mom I wanted to include some coupons in the basket for the person to buy more treats!

Now that we had our own dog safe and sound at home we wanted to donate our Milk-Bone® Puppy Kit to our local SPCA shelter. Many people will be adopting puppies and dogs this holiday season that need a good home. I know it must be sad for the dogs that are not chipped and were not found if they were lost. I hope all the dogs find a good home.

We dropped off our Milk-Bone® Puppy Kit gift and asked that it be donated to a family adopting a puppy. They were very busy at the Placer County shelter so we did not have the chance to see any dogs or pick a specific puppy to give our gift to, but I know the good people there will make sure its properly donated.

If you are planning to get a new puppy for the holidays or anytime please do as I did and get your dog micro chipped in case they go missing. And of course give them yummy Milk-Bone® treats to make them a happy dog!

The Tree inside the SPCA Placer County. It was full of pictures of animals that need homes.

My son saw a Kitty Cat and kept asking me if I saw it. He said "You See?" Id love to get him a cat but I am allergic!

What a scary morning for you guys! I am so glad that your dog was found safe and sound! My pets have all been microchipped, and it is definitely worth the money to have that done. You have an awesome neighbor, that is for sure.

What a great donation you made! I'm sure whoever gets to take that home along with their new furry family member will love it!
