Just one of the many things pondered in the inevitable English English vs. American English discussion that ensues when an American marries a Brit. (Or as it has become known in our household, the “Your people obviously say it wrong, so just concede the point” debate.)
Fortunately, it doesn’t really matter how you pronounce it, our Bernese Mountain Dog Dexter just inexplicably loves them. So when I was selecting a treat recipe from my new organic doggie cookbook (a little post-Christmas gift to myself from the awesome Bubba Rose Biscuit Company), the delicious sounding Mambo Italiano biscuits heaping with fresh tomato sauce and Italian spices was an easy choice.
For those who don’t know Dexter, he is without question one of the world’s most discriminating dogs and has embarrassed more than a few London pet shop owners by eagerly accepting, then flatly rejecting their offerings of whatever treats they happen to be sampling. Understanding that this is not exactly helpful in assisting in the sale of these treats, I cringe every time we end up in this situation, already visualizing the inevitable and awkward conclusion. These biscuits however are sure to be bullet proof.
