Hugo Says... OYSTERS are yummy!

Hugo loves oysters and has a nose for good food.

When he's at the beach, he wades into the knee deep water and dives his nose into the salty cold water to reach the oysters. He runs up onto the grass and lays in the sun - always keeping one eye on his Grandpa in case he wants a bite too.

Chewing on the sharp, crunchy shell keeps him busy for hours and when he finally cracks it open there's nothing more satisfying than to eat the yummy morsel which was hidden inside.

Hugo says his Grandma and Grandpa always remind him to "Be Oyster Aware". A doggy and his family must know when the oysters are safe to eat and where to pick them so they are not contaminated. Vibrio Vulnificus is a very serious illness associated with eating raw oysters and may be deadly to some people - and dogs.

Gulf oysters may be 'post harvest processed' making them absolutely safe for even 'at-risk' consumers. Be informed, be cautious, be smart and be sure to 'Be Oyster Aware'.

Hugo says enjoy your oysters!
