    It's great for their coat, but it does have sugar and salt, so you don't want to overdo it. It can also be constipating to some dogs, or give others the runs if they eat too much. If you're using the puppy Kong (I think I remember that's what you bought) it should be okay, just keep an eye on her and adjust her food intake accordingly to make sure she's not getting more sugar and salt in her treats or overeating. Peanut butter is calorie dense, but while she's a puppy that shouldn't be a big problem. You have to watch it after they're grown, though, to keep from ending up with a portly pooch.

    thanks renee i can always count on you to answer my questions. but yeah that explains alot. the crzy running around the house. i always thought that she needed some exercise. she would run several laps through the kitchen to the living room to the dining room so fast.

    LOL! You should see my bunch do that! They make their turns at the end of the living room on the sectional. They'll even do it after they've just come in from running outside.

    most all dogs love peanut butter. remember it's not part of their normal ancestor's diet. use sparingly!
