There are two types of people in this world - those that love Peeps and those who don't.  I'm in the "I think they are disgusting" category so I will never be buying the fluffy mounds of sugar for myself.  But thanks to a huge display at Fleet Farm in Rochester, your dog can now enjoy these fluffy treats too.

Peeps for Your Dog...Yes, it is a real thing!

They aren't full of marshmallows but they are just as colorful as a real Peep. (And your dog would probably love to tear these to shreds!)

My baby Saint Bernard is pretty adorable but these small dog toys really aren't designed for him.  He would be able to swallow these toys without a problem and the stuffing probably isn't a good thing for his digestive tract.  So I won't be making a purchase but if you've got a smaller dog and are putting together an Easter basket for your pet, this might be a fun addition.  I found these at Fleet Farm but I'm going to guess that they are available at other stores too.

I know a few people that are planning on getting baby chicks for their grandkids this Easter.  Completely adorable (in the beginning) and such a fun, little animal for kids to take care of.  And, Rochester actually allows you to have chickens in your backyard.  It's true!  If you've always wanted backyard chickens, you can have them in town.  There is a big 'ol long list of animals that are NOT allowed in town and you can see the full list if you keep scrolling below.

You heard that Pepsi made a Peeps drink too, right?!  If you missed the memo on that fun addition to the soda aisle, learn all about it here.
