Saturday Survey: What’s It Take to Get A Treat Around Here?

Hi!  My name’s Penny Layne.  You may as well go ahead & start singing the Beatles song – it’s all I ever hear.

Anyways, my mom, the Dog Lady, is off at the State Special Olympics Games with the boys, so I decided to take over the blog for t0day.

Here’s what I’m curious about.  Mom keeps telling the boys to lay off the treats for me because I’m getting too fat.  (As if!)  Usually, I can get them to give me one anyways by standing up on my hind feet and begging, but that’s awful hard work with such a large belly – it throws off my balance.

Doesn’t this Kong toy look fun?

I was surfing on YouTube and came across this ad for the Kong Wobbler.  This is one I just may have to try.  It’s kind of like a Weeble toy (Remember?  “Weebles wobble, but they don’t fall down”), only you stuff it with treats, and as the dog bats the toy around, the treats come flying out.

Has anyone tried this with multiple dogs?  Wonder if they’d fight over it???

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
