Peanut butter

This is how we tell the difference between the "dog peanut butter" and the "human peanut butter" in our house.


God forbid the lids get swapped somehow.

I wanted to edit my first comment, but I couldn't. So here goes again. I just wanted to know why you needed two jars, since they appear to be identical. Unless Dozer and Star help themselves by trying to put their snouts in their jar . . .? Somehow, I can't believe they could do that, but pitbulls are resourceful. Perhaps they've learned to read and also how to use spoons???? :-)

The rules stand in my house, Dog peanut butter stays in a dog obvious container, lest the nieces get dog peanutbutter by mistake and my brother has a coronary. (Notice I didn't say anything about the nieces who think that dog slobber cures EVERYTHING!) So Doggie butter, is separate from my peanut butter in the frig (because I make my own).

It's because of chronic "double dipping." Spoonful of peanut butter, dog licks spoon, second spoonful of peanut butter, dog licks spoon again, and so on. We aren't as concerned with sanitation when it comes to the dog peanut butter. No new spoon for each scoop, or pulling out a predetermined amount, or anything like that. :)

I imagine we'd do something like Leila's strategy if there were more people (or kids) in the house.

That is exactly what I do with my peanut butter jar lids as well!

I guess you can tell that our dogs haven't been given any peanut butter, at least not yet. :-)

I got freaked out with all the recalls and threw out all my peanut butter, even though it wasn't recalled.
