Welcome back to DogBlogville after the extended Thanksgivin' holiday weekend. I hope you all
scored loads of table treats after spendin' many, many long hours rehearsin' those sad, "nobody ever feeds me anything" looks stuck to your "people food is bad for me" commitments.
The economy bein' what it is, I don't think I speak alone when sayin' that we're all tryin' to cut corners and save biscuit money wherever we can this Christmas. Mebbee some of you are Black Friday sales shoppers and that's all well and fine, but I'm here to tell you how to create a unique, personalized gift that will sure to be a hit for all the dawgs on your shoppin' list.
Choose one of the better balls you've got layin' around and have become bored with. I will use my Softflex Bestball for demonstration purposes.
Then choose 1-3 of your other toys, depending on the size of the ball. These will be going inside the ball so choose accordingly. Remember now, these will be a gift so do not choose one of your favorites or it might be hard to part with. A small Kong, a toy dumbbell, a pink ball with a rattle inside are what I've chosen from my toybox. I've had a lot of fun with these toys....and that pink ball I've had since I was a puppy....and that Kong is perfect for holdin' treats. A-hem! Sorry I was havin' a moment -now I'm back and ready to proceed with my demonstration.
Chew a nice, toy-sized whole in one end. (Ladies, LADIES! I know it's hard but TRY and focus on the TOY!!!)
Here, this closeup might help you to keep your mind on the subject at paw:
Always keep in mind that you cannot replace what you take out. Once it's gone, it's gone. Also note, hole does not need to be an exact circle. It is actually more challengin' bein' an odd-shape. This looks perfecto!
Now, just place one or more of the chosen toys in the hole and VOILA! You have two toys in one!
Guaranteed to impress your friends with your ingenuity! This is one gift they will always remember. Trust me, one of these can keep a dawg entertained for hours on end. Nuthin' else will matter as their prey drive kicks in and they try to remove the "innards" from the ball. Hmmm....mebbee I should give it a test drive before actually givin' it away, you know - just to be sure it's "friend-worthy".
I dunno, mebbee I better go back to the drawin' board.
You know what they say, if at first you don't succeed,
try, try again. So that's what I'm gonna be doin' till
I see you again. Tryin' and tryin' to get
my toys outta this dogonne ball!
Woofs and slobbers,
