    Default 3 Dogs and a Kong

    Decided to get the kong out last night, filled it with treats and threw it on the floor. Guss and Holly did not have a clue what to do with it, it took my darling little cassie who you all know is blind and deaf and 15 to show them what to do. I was only saying to Sins a few nights ago I was getting concerned for her, she seems so confused at times but not last night. She played with it for ages, got all the treats out and thoroughly enjoyed them all. Guss and Holly well a bit dim or what?Still love though.

    Wow Cassie is 15! That is the kind of stuff I like to hear. I am so afraid of Cooper having a short life span. Way to go Cassie!!!

    Shelter dogs aren't broken. They've simply experienced more life than other dogs. If they were human, we would call them wise. They would be the ones with tales to tell and stories to write. Do not pity a shelter dog. Adopt one.

    That's brilliant! It shows she still has a good quality of life.
    Kongs are just fab! We got one for Daisy last week,I had no idea there were so many different kong Toys or even some horrible Liver pastes that you can fill them with.There's even a toothpaste for a Kong......There's a clip of her "killing" the Kong in the cavalier clips section.
    Have Gus and Holly showed any interest in it yet?

    Forgive this new puppy owner who hasn't had a dog in 16 years...what do I do with a Kong? I think Rudy received something similar to a Kong in a holiday gift - it's an oblong rubber toy with a quarter sized hole at the bottom which I assume is for treats. But the tiny treats we give him roll right out the bottom of it - not too challenging!! As an empty toy it's not too enticing to him. Suggestions????

    I mix tuna with natural live yoghurt and put it in ice cube trays to freeze it, when its frozen place them in the kong and top off with smooth peanut butter as a treat, it takes them longer to get the stuff out and in summer its nice to cool them down, you could also use cheese from a tube like primula and kibble but do remember to give them less food to compensate for them

    I spread peanut butter inside the rim, and my dogs go crazy!!! You can add some of your smaller treats in their too because the peanut butter holds them in.
