Get on the Stick — Couch Potato!
Without a doubt the ultimate couch potato in the household
is the family dog. No matter how much training, how many times
you scold, leave the house for five minutes and within seconds
the dog will be on the couch. Combine the couch potato with a
dog's favorite natural toy, the stick, and you have Pooch
'n Purr Pantry's latest treat - BJ's Couch Potato Stick.
BJ's Couch Potato Stick is a 12" long dog treat made from human
"fresh off the grocery store shelf" ingredients. Wholewheat flour
is combined with plenty of ground chicken liver and mashed potatoes,
then slowly oven baked to "stick" hardness. This pawfectly delicious
treat makes a great camera moment as the well-loved pet prances
proudly with his "stick" in his mouth. Tie a bow around BJ's Couch
Potato Stick, and you have the best dog-gone gift ever.

co-owner, Karen DeSio. "Not only was it well received by
our canine customers, but it attracts a great deal of attention

starts, they are sure to take a bag home," DeSio added.
"It has even been stated that carob
can ease the arthritic pain in dogs," Lori Adams, the other
half of Pooch n Purr Pantry commented. "I'm not sure if
that is an old wives' tale or not, but it certainly can't do
"Pooch n Purr Pantry has nine different
flavored biscuits, plus many specialty items, such as muffins,
waffles, donuts and a carob chip cookies. All of the biscuits
have dual main ingredients to appeal to the dog's sense of smell.

Carob and Peanut butt Biscuits are the only one that comes out
black," DeSio joked. "And of course, Barkley is a black
