Taking a Break with Boudreaux’s Bonz

R&R thek9harperlee

I have a little something that I need to confess. The last few weeks have been slightly overwhelming. From my B&B adventures in the country, to my Memorial Day weekend gardening marathon, to my Park Day 2.0 BINGO quest, I have had lots and lots of fun, but it’s all been just a bit non-stop. So today my human mommy and I have carved out some R&R time.

Paris Wife thek9harperlee

For my mommy, that means sitting down with The Paris Wife, which she started reading way back in January on her fantasy island getaway. She says it’s an excellent book, she just hasn’t taken the time to enjoy it. Well, that changes today.

Boudreaux thek9harperlee

As for me, I’ll be sitting back and enjoying some Boudreaux’s Bonz, the Chicken Gumbo Bones to be exact. (If you’re not from South Louisiana, that’s pronounced “BOO-droe’s Bones.”) These are some locally made doggy biscuits that my mommy found at our neighborhood human grocery store. Here’s the story behind Boudreaux’s Bonz from their website:

Boudreaux’s mama loves to cook. She bakes such delightful treats for her human children, and Boudreaux patiently waits on the rug in the kitchen for something to fall from mama’s culinary adventures.

Alas, two years went by and nothing for a doggie to feel good about. Sure, there was plenty of cookie dough and such, but nothing for a proud Cajun dog to brag about. Then one day, Boudreaux’s mama saw the light!

The flavors are based on treats Boudreaux’s mama whipped up for her humans:

  • Boudreaux’s Biscuits–the originals, are “mildly nutty and wildly sumptuous.”
  • Cheesy Garlic Vacheries–inspired by the recipe for cheese straws from the famous River Road Recipes human cookbook, these are “hard for humans to resist.”
  • Chicken Gumbo Bones–are a “taste of Louisiana.”
  • Parrain’s Cheese Biscuits–made for the dog who is concerned about garlic breath, these cheese straws hold the garlic and add extra cheese.
  • Peanut Butter Pirogues–these are named for little boats that we have here in South Louisiana, and they are made with real peanut butter. Yum!

Smell the Roses thek9harperlee

So whatever your plans are for today, my mommy and I hope that you will join us in taking a break. Curl up with a good book, enjoy some tasty treats, or just spend a few minutes lost in a daydream. Remember, it’s important to stop and smell the roses.

    What a wonderful day, Miss Harper Lee! A good book, some beautiful flowers to sit by, and some special treats. Does it get any better than that?

    That’s what my Mom did today! Except, after reading this, I gave her the ol’ stink-eye because I didn’t get any of those delish-sounding bones.

    Sounds great to take a day off from the action and just relax! Oh, actually reading a book for enjoyment, perfect! Seems like some good dog biscuits to sit back and enjoy as well! Hope your day was restful!

    Hi Miss Harper Lee…we’re so happy you stopped by our blog. We’re a bit slow getting back to you…we know. Our Personal Assistant is a bit dense….but SHE does have thumbs…so what can you do.

    Those Bonz look scrumptious. We’ve just been having your garden variety bog standard bones for treats. We need to go look for something more exotic like those.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    Well our day is over and The Help was running all over the place helping her Mum shop for a new iPhone. She is home now but not really with us yet!! I can see it will be an early night with feet up which means longer belly rub time for me 😀

    Enjoy your R&R and your treats 🙂

  12. That’s lovely! Our mommy recently got time to sit back and read a good book (she read Gone Girl, and she loved it!) and it was such a luxury. It was annoying though that she couldn’t cater to our every whim whilst she was reading it! Love, Hannah and Charlie

    Have fun!

  15. What a great way to spend the day – reading, chilling, and eating yummy biscuits. You go, girl!

    Love and licks,
