My New Friend...And We Wanna Tell You About a Challenge!

Hewwwow!  Finn here.  Now that I have had a full day to spend with Momma and Pops, I thought I would show you what they brought back for me.  Now, I did make them feel really really guilty about leaving me behind.  After jumping all over them when they came to get me from Lynne's house, I pouted.  I gave them the sad eyes.  But, we went for a long walk and Momma told me about where they went.  And then I came home and I got a new friend!

So, they were forgiven.

Isn't he cute?  Momma said she bought him for me in Amsterdam.  She said they had a really nice time there.  And apparently, they went in the middle of a heat wave, so now she is a lovely shade of pink!

Now, to the second part of my post.  Can you do this?

Remember Momma did a post a while back where I was sitting and she put the treats all around me like she saw my friend Gopher do.  Now Gopher is having a challenge for dogs who can command this much restraint without both killing the peep who is placing the treats down AND without eating them (the treats, that is).  If you think you've got the skillz, check out his post here and join in the challenge!


  1. That's a nice little friend you have there, Finn. We hope you don't unstuff him anytime soon. Heehee.
    We would like to try the treat trick with Whisky but the cats would probably eat up the treats before Whisky does. LOL.

  2. No way could any of us do that except maybe Norbert, I doubt it though. You are talented

  3. I'll bet you have spectacular sad eyes, Finn!

    We could NEVER do the treat outline in this house... Oliver "might" let us do it, but there are four other monsters who would happily eat the trail as we put it down!

  4. What a cute new friend you have, Finn! Bet you and he have lots of fun together.

    No way, says Mom, could we ever do that great trick. She says she would go through about 100 lbs. of kibble before we would even make it around one paw - BOL.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  5. We just love your new friend!! Jakey says that if you need any help destuffing him, he is availabe!!


  6. What a cute lion stuffie. I bet if he has a tag on him somewhere -- that would be the first thing I would chew off him!

  7. I love your new friend. Will you unstuff him, or do you just cuddle? That is a pawsome trick there, you are a very patient pooch to do that. Here's a belly rub for you for being so good.

  8. Hey Finn!
    Wow, sounds like a great reunion with your peeps! I love your lion stuffie because his fur is so much like yours. Same colors! I'd still unstuffie him fur sure. BOL. I suppose my Mom will want to try this challenge, but I bet I just frustrate her! BOL
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  9. Finn....
    You made your Momma and Pops feel "really really guilty" about leaving?! Really?! Break. My. Heart!! ;op
    Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

  10. Hi Finn , love your toy and as for the last pic, no chance! You are a very good doglet. Next you will be balancing them on yuor nose!
    Best wishes Molly

  11. You got a spectacular stuffie. It is looking at you with such love in its eyes. You are one lucky dog.
    Sweet William The Scot

  12. That is pretty darn skillful and restrained of you Finn.

    But tell the truth--would you be able to do it if they were hot dogs or cheesy snacks?

  13. What skill! Amazing. Hey Finn? How's that restraint coming on. I doubt my dogs are able to do that... but I bet they'd have a fighting chance on how fast they can gobble up treats.

    Congratulations on successfully manipulating your parents, by the way.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  14. I guess this challenge must be just for dogs. MOL...MOL I can't imagine either of the boys letting HH put treats anywhere but in their mouths.

    pawhugs, Max

  15. Thanks for the mention again and your entry. Gopher and I are accepting the challenge of more 'desirable' food.

    1. What a cute little friend you've got!!!!

  16. No way the brown dawgs could do Cool new toy you got Finn.

  17. Your new furend is GRRRRREAT. That was nice of "THEM" to bring you somethingy super like that.

    PeeS... I could never do that treat thingy around here... ERNIE would suck em up faster than a VACULA.

  18. I gave it a try with both boys and couldn't do it with them lying flat or even sitting. They (esp Jimmy) have a good "leave it" with one treat, but the whole outline thing made them crazy. Lying flat they thought I was going to kill them or something....I'll try again.... maybe.....

  19. What a nice new friend you have, Finn!!
    I really love the last photo of you!
    Have a great day.
    Woof, woof,


  20. What an awesome new toy

    Stop on by for a visit

  21. Your new friend is sure a cutie, Finn. Take good care of him, okay?
    No way can we do that treat surround trick - NO WAY!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

  22. I love your new friend, you must have been a very good dog to get something special like that.

    Holy Dog that is crazy you lay there like a good dog while all those yummies are around you, your a smart and very well behaved dog!!! We need alot of practice :)

  23. Holey Moley Finn, you are super for sure. We CAN NOT do that trick ever! Mum says you are amazing and we should take note! As if, hehehehehe. Take care mate. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  24. They brought you a grrreat toy!
    Aaaand.... nope.... I've told you.... I am not able to do that!
    You are special!
    Kisses and hugs

  25. Nice new toy you have there.

  26. Hey Finn- My dog Barley who is a yellow lab he could do that, but dag nab it he barks at everyone even us sometimes. He is so restrained with some things but bark is not one of those things. He's a barker, but I love him.

  27. That's a terrific new toy they brought you home! I guess they are forgiven! LOL!

  28. We like your new friend Finn. He looks like a nice guy. We are going to try that trick of the treats all around you. That is terrific that you left them there. Good job.

  29. Very cool new friend and totally fine job on the sitting there surrounded with food. I think I would have died. TOTALLY Cool

  30. whoot a niyce nyooo furrend, he looks liyke a lottar funn indeedydo! I'z fancy partakingg in dat challernge derr, I fink it wood be a laff to watch ma mummer try do it whilstt I eet em awll upp heehee! love n likkers, pdorg xxox

  31. Finn - that was pawsome of you to forgive your parents ;)
    I love your new stuffie (er, friend)!
    You are so talented with that kibble outline!!!
    I could NEVER do that - the kibble wouldn't make it around even one of my little paws!

  32. Finn, you have got some mad skills! I would never be able to do that without my head shooting off. Way to go, buddy.

    Your friend looks like a lot of fun.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  33. Paw I love your friend - it puts me in mind of Me and My Kevin! - just don't let him swim about in your water bowel like Kevin does, or sneak into your pictures! Think I will do the treat thing, yer siree, we are all looking forward to practising that one! x

  34. Your new friends looks super fun! I would fail miserably at this challenge - I have absolutely no restraint!

    Your pal, Pip

  35. Finn what a great new stuffie you got.
    Now as for the treat thingie you are simply AMAZING! Absolutely NO chance of any of s succeeding. LOL

  36. Hi Finn! What a cute little stuffie you got there!! There is absolutely NO way that we could do that thing with the treats...we wouldn't survive! You are AWESOME at it!
    xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  37. Finn your mom was so sweet to think of you while she was on her trip and bring you back something! I do not know how you lay there with all those treats around you...Betty would barely let me get her started before she became the canine vacuum cleaner. Have a good weekend!

  38. Isn't that always the case?! I see something that's incredibly awesome and perfect in every way (i.e. Finn's new friend) and just when I make up my mind that I want one, too, I find out it's from some impossibly far away place that isn't easy to get to, which means I'll probably never get it. *SIGH*

    I guess I'll just have to add Amsterdam to my list of Must-See places to visit, if only to find a lion as cute as that one!

  39. How cool that your peeps got to go to Amsterdam! Did they get to see the tulip fields? Very nice lion furiend they brought you back Finn :) Glad you had a good time playing with Brumby while they were away :)

    Waggin at ya,
