I was so busy buying pressies and making cakes for a certain dog's birthday
last week, that in the midst of it, I made an epic FAIL.
One of the gifts I bought for Finn was this
The folks who bought it raved about it! Their dogs begged them to fill it up and
let them play with it. So, I went for it. When it came, I stuffed it with our usual treats, but since we're still using puppy sized treats, they fell out too easily,
as in - fell out before I even put the ball on the floor.
FAIL on Momma's part for buying a toy before looking for the matching treats!!!
I went to the pet store and tried to size up bone-shaped treats that would fit into the little slot and found these:
Look, perfect bone size, seemed like a healthy natural product. And all the Kong treats I looked at in the pet store weren't bone shaped. And therefore, I incorrectly surmised, would not fit into the bone shaped holes in the ball.
These treats I bought in the store are just small enough that they fall out a little too easily too. Like one push with the paw and one roll of the ball and the treat is out.
Then I went back and looked at the picture online and saw that I'm just supposed to
buy the Kong-shaped Kong treats and stuff them sideways into the
bone-shaped holes in the ball.
Ughghghhggg. Ever notice that what seems like a good idea at that instant moment in time never really turns out to be a good idea?
I'm making three trips to the pet store for this stupid ball! FAIL! And, when I bought the proper treats, and tried them out in the ball, it took Finn all of about five minutes to get them out. FAIL FAIL FAIL.
Momma's rant is over now. We'll go back to our regularly scheduled programming of cute Finn pictures and stories next time. She just had to let that all out. Thank you.
