The Game of Treats. . . a Short Novel of Rewards

The day dawned crisp and clear - a harbinger of colder days to come. They had all gathered early to witness the GAME OF TREATS.

She was nervous, this Molly of Ragmuffin, for this had been her first venture as a judge for the GAME OF TREATS. The prize. . . well, a treat, of course. But the question weighing heavy on all of the JUDGES' heads was: Which treat will prevail?

The contestants traveled from far and wide on this late Fall day. Many suffered hardships as cold wind and the scent of snow assailed them from every direction. Many would not survive the journey and those who did will never be the same again.

They say this will be a Winter of Winters. I fear they may be right.

The FINAL FOUR treats challenging the panel of judges were:

Carrot: This food is very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate and Manganese, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K and Potassium.

Banana: This food is very low in Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Sodium. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C, Potassium and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin B6.

Halo Liv-a-Little Chicken treats: Chicken, water,sodium phosphate, salt, and carrageenan.Guaranteed Analysis: Crude Protein: 80.0% (Min), Crude Fat: 3.0% (Min), Crude Fiber: 2.0% (Max), Moisture: 5.0% (Max)

ProTreat dried liver dog treats: 100% pure chicken liver. Guaranteed Analysis: Minimum Protein 70.45%, Minimum Fat 15.38%, Maximum Fiber .07%, Maximum Moisture 6.5%

A hush ran through the crowd as the contestants took their places in the ARENA. Determination painted the faces of each one. Nervous tension stretched taut across the field.
