I’ve been watching television and this certain commercial comes on that kind gets under my piggy skin. I’m not sure if you have seen this yet. I can’t hold it in any longer or this little oinker is going to squeal!
Breathe. I’m okay. Really I am. It’s Purina Beggin’ Poppers. Purina if you are listening, please take note. I am *not* amused. Really. Why does it have to be a piggy snout that you are popping these treats off to dogs? Friends, have you seen this commercial? Here, take a look.
Do you see what I mean? I know it looks cute and everything but why a pig? Why can’t it be a cat? Why can’t it be a roo? Why does it have to be any animal? Why can’t you just advertise that you can ‘pop’ those treats from the lid? On the Purina web site, it says quote:
These bacon-wrapped, cheesey bites launch from a rubber pig’s nose for a treat that’s a blast for you AND your best friend!
Wrong. WRONG. It’s not a blast for you and your best friend. Mommy doesn’t see the blast in this and I don’t either. Stomps piggy hooves. What if I come up with a creation that pops treats from you dog nose. How would that be? I just don’t get it. Shakes piggy head and is off to write a letter to Purina. I wonder if they will answer my email? I will certainly let you know.
P.S. You can’t stop laughing now – snorts.
UPDATE: I received an email back from Purina – snorts. Case No. 19096004 – A note from Purina. This is what it said:

Ok snorts – I know it sounds a little “form letter” but hey – they wrote me back. That’s great! I think I’m on the right track with marketing this product in another way – double snorts!
