Last spring we did a photo shoot for Milk Bone with our boy Deuce (aka Construction Puppy). Every time I go in a store, I check the Milk Bone display. Lo and Behold, today I found a Milk Bone package with a tricolor on it. So I bought a package and Kris and I spent about 10 minutes comparing the picture to Deuce. We have concluded that we are about 90% sure it's Deuce on the package. I am going to e-mail the company, but the ad agency at the time told us the company usually does not tell anyone when their dog will be featured :confused:. So we may never know for sure.

Here is the package:

Here is Deuce a few minutes ago after I just woke him up, poor boy:

Wow, it sure does look like him! How thrilling to have millions of your dog's photos on all the biscuit/treat shelves in all the stores across the US! :D:D:D

He'll need to paw_ograph the rest of the packages of milk bone biscuits.:D

Oh I think that must be him or it's his stunt double! That is wonderful to see him on all those packages of treats! That must be like getting your picture on the ice cream container if you're a human... :lol:

Deuce is a very handsome boy. The picture on the box certainly looks like him. Zena and Ziggy would like a pawtographed box, please!

When he was very small he had a white marking on his side that looked just like a 2. So we named him MysticKnight Little Deuce Coupe. As he got older, that marking became illegible as a 2. Too bad.

He also has the nickname Construction Puppy. He got that when I was remodeling the fireplace in the living room; he followed me everywhere I went and watched my every move. Same thing when I re-sided the house and was working in the back yard on the back side of the house.

Whether it's him or not Bruce, he is absolutely stunning :D:cool:

How cool is that! I think it is him, I mean... it looks just like him!!!

It is funny you bring this up because just last week I was admiring the photo and it made me buy the treats! I couldn't pass them up... they had a cav on them :)

Recently saw the package and adored the Cav on the front. Way to go Deuce!

So cool! Where do we send fan mail????

How'd it come about that Deuce modeled for MilkBone?

:lol::lol: Deuce doesn't need any fan mail; he's spoiled enough as it is!

It was just chance that we got hooked up with their ad agency. We got a call one Sunday night from the ad agency because the dog they had set up cancelled for a Target ad. They just started going down a list of local breeders and called us; we were able to come out the next day. They did a shoot for a target ad for a dog blanket and a few days later they did a shoot with 2 litters of puppies we had at the time. They were impressed with our flexibility and our look and selection of dogs, so when the Milk Bone thing came up they called us.

Hey Bruce:
I just saw that package in Walmart this week! Wondered whose tri it was!

Hope you're right - looks pretty similar!

Too bad he can't get the endorsement(s) for his modeling career!
