My Kong collection

My humans always thought that Kong toys are the most durable dog toys in the world. Well, not for a beagle! At least, not all of them.

Over the past 2 years I’ve collected (and destroyed) quite a number of Kong toys.

This is my Kong collection 🙂

And my thoughts on which Kong I think is the best…..

No. 10: Puppy teething stick

My first kong ever! As you can see, it’s all chewed up and brittle….. my humans stopped giving me this once I grew my big, sharp teeth 😀

No. 9: Braidz

My monkey braidz….. It took me a few minutes to sever its arm…..

No. 8: Pet stix

Pet stix….. its seams exploded after a few days…..

No. 7: Squiggles

My humans only let me play with it for a limited time only each day…. so it took me a couple of weeks to chew off an ear and tear a large hole in its neck. I love this toy because it stretches and squeaks a lot!

No. 6: Air dog

Its skin is all chewed up and fuzzy. I love tennis balls, so I love this toy too. 🙂

No. 5: Wubba

My wubba…. well, the picture tells a thousand words….. I love the shaking and squeaking and most of all, chewing the tails off…..

No. 4: Wobbler

The wobbler….. full of scratches from my teeth and from dragging it all over the floor. I got the treats out easily by pushing it into a corner, holding it with one paw and using the other paw to twist it open. No challenge at all.

No. 3, 2 & 1! Kong extremes

By far, these are the most durable Kongs I ever had and the only ones I get to lay my paws and teeth on every day. My humans stuff yummy treats in it and the hard rubber ball is the only ball that I haven’t been able to destroy……yet. I’ve been chewing on the Kong extreme and Extreme Goodie Bone for 2 years and they have only suffered minor scratches.

Best of all, I love my Kong ball. I make my humans play with me until they get so sick of throwing the ball or tugging it from my mouth or having to constantly retrieve it from under the sofa because I would deliberately push it underneath for fun and then bark at them.

Play with me!

My sister Spring, being all stuck up and refusing to play with me…. 😦

So my verdict: all the kong toys are super fun to play with, but only the extreme rubber toys can withstand a beagle!

I would love very much to get my
paws on a Kong shakers, but unfortunately it’s a new product which might take months to be available here…… and my humans say I’m a spoilt dog with far too many toys! A dog can never have far too many toys!

Hotter days

The weather has been really hot and dry lately with no rain at all! I enjoy my morning walks, but evening walks can be a pain nowadays. The roads are scorching hot even until late in the evening. My paws are all dry, cracked and coarse 😦

Dried leaves scattered all over the sidewalks and roads….. They are pretty fun to trample on!

I am currently transitioning from Canine Caviar Special Needs Dinner to Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream. My humans have been putting me on a very strict diet and going all stingy with the treats. Sometimes they have their mouth watering breakfast in front of me without even offering me a small tiny bite. So I do my best to extort what I can.

Stop right there and hand me the bacon!

Unfortunately, my humans are dead serious about the diet this time 😦

It’s okay. My human grandfather still gives in to my demands whenever I act all cute and lovey dovey.

What an easy target.

The hot weather also makes me very tired and lazy.

This is how I love to spend my afternoons. With the air-conditioning on.

Hope it rains pretty soon or my humans are gonna make me do a silly little rain dance!
