Peanut butter is life….(for Winston)

Peanut butter – I find it is one of those things you either love or hate. I like peanuts, and I like butter…..but peanut butter, no no not for me thanks. The smell brings back memories of being a child and my brother having it smothered on his toast in the mornings. It now has a more recent memory for me where I went on a self catering holiday with a friend, we were budgeting so decided to do rolls for lunches, I went for traditional ham and cheese and she went for peanut butter – you would of thought she was eating the most expensive lavish meal, she was really enjoying her little tiny finger roll caked in the stuff – I even think she said ‘this is the best roll she’s ever had’ – that’s a pretty big statement to make, perhaps I am missing out on the PB craze. 

Anywho, this isn’t about what I like to have in my sandwiches whilst sunning it up abroad. This is about the new found love for Winston. I’m always trying to find new things to put in his Kong. One of his Instagram pals, another Winston (check out his page – @winstonwiggles he is a peanut butter nutter with a super smashing set of nashers!) And we thought it was about time to give some of the gooey stuff a go. 

I have a great pet store close by to me called unique pets – and thought I would see if they sold it. I came across the Peamutt Butter for dogs made by Duerr’s. So into the basket it went with everything else I saw along the way that I think Winston might like (this dog gets more treats than I do!) 

Well, I got home and put the bag on the floor – of course Winston was head first in there to see what goodies he had. I pulled out the peanut butter, and he sat patiently with his big goggly eyes popping out of his head in desperation to know what it was. Honestly, this smells EXACTLY the same as human peanut butter. If I liked it, I probably would of tried it myself to be honest. I don’t think I need to explain too much about how much Winston liked it – I will show you the pictures instead, as I feel this shows love at first sight in all its glory. 

Pure love right?! He now goes nuts (no pun intended) when he see’s the jar! I would definitely recommend this nutty treat for your dog, it is not expensive and has no hidden nasties – and most of all it’s delicious according to Winston! Although, he’s more annoyed the effort he has to put in to get it out of his Kong compared to licking it straight from the jar!

If you are in the Buckinghamshire area I highly recommend Unique Pets. You can find more information on their website – Please click here or check out their Instagram page @unique_pets_

The makers of peamutt butter also do some delicious looking human jams and recipes too! Check out there website Click here

Please note I am not paid or sponsored to blog  – I do it out of my own love for writing my blog on a quiet evening in, relaxing with a glass of wine and a pug curled on my lap. I like to spread (another pun – I just couldn’t help myself) good things when I find them! 

Thanks for stopping by – we hope you have a FAB bank holiday weekend! Any comments feel free to leave them below! 

Lots of love,

King’s Dog Treatsย 

We love to support small and new businesses when we can. As a quote I once saw – when you support a small business, you are supporting a dream – and I couldn’t agree more. People often quit the rat race to pursue something they love, meaning starting from scratch, hard work and dedication, and I completely admire them for this. 

I am always looking for goodies for Winston (he’s one spoilt pug!) and I often turn to Instagram for recommendations. I stumbled across Kings Dog Treats. The name ‘King’ is the name of their insta famous Rottweiler, who is a gorgeous gentle giant, and he is the inspiration behind the company. Drawn in instantly by their Jammy Dodgers, Bourbon biscuits and Custard Creams – they looked good enough for a human to eat! (Just to clarify I haven’t tried them myself – and all though these are made with high quality human ingredients, I would recommend sticking to the human version biscuits for us! ๐Ÿ˜†)

Winston has a very sensitive stomach – even though he will eat anything and everything – not all things he eats agrees with him,and dog treats are one of the things he really struggles with. So I headed over to their website to find out more. They have no hidden nasties and give you full details of their high quality ingredients, a whole page dedicated to this! Packed with lots of vitamins and minerals, I decided to order some for Winston to give these tasty looking treats a go. My first order was the Jammy Dodgers.

They arrived a few days later boxed well with disposable cool packs (at the time it was when we had the heatwave! Yes, remember that time when the UK actually experienced raging hot heat?!) The team at Kings got in touch to tell me to keep them stored in the fridge to stop the strawberry middles melting.


Winston LOVED them and more importantly, did not bring them back up! (Too much information?!) We have since ordered the Bourbons and mixed bones, which both again went down a treat. 


We are getting close to the end of our last bag, so will be placing another order soon! They have new cheesy pretzels…..Winston loves cheese so they will be on the list! And new personalised biscuits too! What a great Christmas prezzie for some of Winston’s dog pals! (Too early to be talking about Christmas?!) 


We highly recommend the guys at King’s Dog Treats, head over to their page to look at all the fab goodies they offer. Sign up to their news letter for all the latest information and any promotional discount codes.

(Sadly, since writing this blog there seems to of been a problem with Kings Dog Treats. Their website is down, and they have not been active on social media. I am unsure as to why at this point, but I hope that everything is ok their side as they truly were always a great company to deal with, it is a shame that they seem to of disappeared for now.)

My camera roll is filled by 99.9% of pictures of Winston. But I’m happy with that, a picture of a pug can put a smile on a lot of people’s faces. An ugly but cute face right?! We are all about spreading happiness, yes as pure cheesy as that is. Winston truly makes me smile everyday, and I hope we can add a bit of happiness to your day.
