Holy Mackerel!

Actually, this is a sardine.

Tanner loves sardines!

Once a week, Tanner gets a couple whole frozen sardines for breakfast. It is pretty funny to watch him carry them down to the bottom part of the yard to eat. Of course, I couldn't get a good picture of him carrying the sardines because he runs down there and starts chowing down immediately!

The omega-3 oils in the fish are good for his skin and coat. Plus, I like having some variety in his diet. Since he really loves the fish, it would make a great jackpot for training as long as I don't let it thaw!

I'm glad he enjoys it! We've had bad luck with fish here and I'm pretty hesitant to try it again. He sure looks proud of his trophy!

He does look proud of his treat! We give our hounds fish oil pills every day with each meal to help with their coats. I have not tried actual fish as a treat but their food is fish flavored so they would probably like it. They get canned veggies with their meals also for a little variety.

I've never tried Frankie or Beryl with actual fish but I'm sure Beryl would like it and Frankie wouldn't, although I'm not sure Beryl would like it frozen. Tanner sure looks like he's enjoying his sardine:)
