About the Food Bottles… by Mercy


Remember last time I said that I had started to get hungry, so I’d gotten a “Food Bottle,” and started playing with it to get food out to feed myself. Well, today, I get to tell you about them!



Grammy had gotten this idea from some of the “intellectually stimulating games” that Honey the Great Dane , Moose, and Mango (see the movie) talked about on their blogs a couple of months ago.



She fills some of these “Sweet Tea” bottles up about 1/3 to ½ way full of our Puppy kibbles and then puts them down on the floor for us to play with or feed ourselves with.



It only took ME a couple of days to learn how to work the bottles, but the boys still have some problems and usually have me help them.


Pippin is starting to get the knack of it and can get some of the food out if the bottle is pretty full, but I can flip it well enough, now, to get out even the last few pieces!




GrandPaw is very proud of me!



Note from Pippin: To my friends (I got mad at Grammy when she snatched it away from me, but she was right) – If you find dried up dead toad jerky… Don’t chew it no matter HOW GOOD it tastes… It will make you PUKE!

That is a horrible torture device. I hate having my intellectuals stimulated. Although it might be good for my idiot brother who always eats really fast and then stalks me so that it is hard to enjoy my meals.

Slobbers,
Mango

Great idea, and very entertaining - for pups and people too!

Not only are those pups too cute for their own good...their IQ level is soaring too!
