Ernie Nelson is one of my very favorite dogs. In fact, as you probably know, because you probably know Ernie…Ernie is EVERYONE’S favorite dog.
Recently, Ernie ran out of treats.
It was a sad day.
Ernie will ONLY eat the jerky treats that Hill’s Pet Nutrition had recently discontinued. Omaha has officially run out of Ernie’s treats, which I know because Mom and Dad checked EVERYWHERE for them, and they are GONE.
I know the people at Hill’s Pet Nutrition are very kind. I also knew they could probably help me. So I sent out this SOS tweet on behalf of Ernie:
Please help us find your former jerky treats for Mom & Dad’s Ernie Dog
@HillsVet Look how sad he is without them!
And SOMEONE at Hill’s tweeted back…
And next thing I know, there are TWENTY ONE bags of the only treats in the whole wide world that Ernie will eat right on our doorstep!
According to my veterinary nutritional calculations, that should last a four pound dog…forever.
They were sent as a gift by an anonymous person at Hill’s. So I set out to blow her cover, which she probably was using to do all sorts of kind things, and found out that the person responsible for getting Ernie his treats was Nancy McKenzie.
Then I said…
And she said…
And it was.
Thank you Nancy! You made my week, you made Mom and Dad’s week and you definitely made Ernie’s week!
Here are pictures of Ernie getting his treats after going DAYS without them…
HAPPY THIRTEENTH BIRTHDAY AND A DAY ERNIE!
LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
