The Cookie Bin
Emma and Winston love it when we replenish the bin because they get a bit of a buffet as I let them sample the new cookies as I get them out of their packaging and into the bin. There are a variety of sizes and flavors ranging from tiny little stars that are great for training - you can do 5 - 6 of those before you equal the size of a regular cookie - to sweet potato fries which are a big hit with both of them. We adjust Winston's food intake accordingly so on days that he has an abundance of cookies he gets a little less in his dinner. Emma never seems to budge in the weight department - she has been 46 - 48 pounds for years. I don't worry so much about her especially since she walks with us each day.
This run I got enough to fill up the bin (a plastic box with a lid that snaps shut) and have a few spare bags/boxes in reserve. I would hate to see what happens if one lets the cookie bin get to empty....
