    Thank you Christine! That was from a traumatic picture taking session! He was pi**ed at me for taking his picture! He would NOT cooperate at ALL..I had to actually crop this one because his "lipstick" was just tooo much !!! Thats why its off centered.. but I loved the "stink eye" he was trying to throw at me!!!

    Oh Yaa! It's a REAL gift..that keeps on giving!! He had actually just gotten up and was slinking away! But you should see how "happy" he gets when kids are around! And I just LOVE explaining it to my grandaughter and the rest of the wee ones!!

    Same with Vegas. But the Everlasting Fun ball is a green ball that you can put treats in. Vegas and Orion respond well to this. Kibble doesn't work, the openings are too big, but carrots do!

    Bea loves the Kong Wobbler - which I originally bought to keep Bo occupied as a little food gobbling puppy. Bea does all the work and he just sits there and waits for the treats to come out. If I give it to him by himself, he'll just sit and look at it. hahahahahaha He waits for Bea to come and make the kibble come out.

    I too am a HUGE fan of spots and Banks' spots are stunning!

    Yes - the green ball is what i have now - works great with carrots! The one with the disk is, I think is blue - she pulled the disk right out.

    Those disks should come with a bigger choke warning. Or a warning stating that you shouldn't give it to smart dogs. Both Vegas and O figured out how to pop the disk out and both tried swallowing it whole.

    I have a section of cow leg bone about 6 inches long. Its about 3 inches across and once the marrow is removed you have a fair sized hollow bone tube. I plug one end with peanut butter,level it off with the butter knife and pour treats like cheese, kibble, pieces of broke doggy cookies with icing in it then plug the open end with peanut butter. Its a stump wagger for Pepper and when she see's me making it she dances from foot to foot.

    @Victor Y... yep, she gets a marrow bone once a month and then I do what you do,,, stuff it with PB and freeze it. she gets those here and there, but once empty she has no interest. So far with the wobbler -- she continues to play thinking/hoping food still will come out

    @2BullyMama Hey--Here are a few ideas for interactive toys for Banks. The Nina Ottosson toys are good. We have the Dog Tornado. I will say once Lucy figured out how to do it she is a little less excited about it but for about 6 months this toys was "da bomb" at our house. I picked up a few others like it (knock off brand--sorry I can't remember) and she liked those as well. Google Nina Ottosson wooden dog tornado.



    Google valley vet elbow twist and orb busy buddy. Elbow, twist and orb-- These are cool because you can use just one or twist them together to make different shapes and change it up.


    Google Carolina Pet Pantry Bob Alot- Large- This one is a lot like the kong one you have. Lucy loves this one too. This one has a flap over the hole where the treats come out so you can adjust the difficulty level.


    Google kibble nibble dog toy. I can't find the one exact one I'm looking for---This one is similar to Lucy's 2nd favorite toy next to the kong wobbler. Keep an eye out in the chain stores like Petco and Petsmart. It is a bluish purple ball a little smaller than a soccer ball that has a hole for treats/kibble. When the dog moves it the thing makes an annoying noise like a giggle stick--but Lucy really likes it. I'll keep looking for a link to send you.

    I tried to send the links but after I posted I realized I can't sent them. Let me know if you are having trouble finding any of these. If anyone knows what that bluish purple giggle stick ball is please help me out!!


    Hope these help!
