First time the pups had peanut butter. The1st puppy Tari left "Dalmatian Nation" (nickname for my pack) to her new home in NY. We thought we'd treat the pups. NOTE: The item being used to give out the peanut butter is a flat-flexible spreader/spatula. It has no sharp edges and does not harm any animal or human for that matter. I would never do anything that could harm my puppies. I've had dalmatians for 20 years. They are my spotted children.
