I love peppermint…especially when it is in the form of a candy cane. Yeah, I learned about them my first Christmas…I golden nosed my way through the decorations on the tree and found this little red and white striped gem…now I look forward each Christmas to getting a piece of the sweet peppermint…however, now I wait for it…I’ve learned to back off the tree…having said that…did you know that small amounts peppermint are good for dogs? Well…it’s true…and by the way here’s the history of the beloved ‘J’ shape like a shepherds crook…so the back story of the candy cane is spiritual and came in celebration of the nativity.
P.S. Hope you watched this YouTube of two yellow labs cleansing a Christmas tree of candy canes…the big dude ate them all! HA! Love it! Rock on retrievers!
