Kong Bliss

I'd love to hug the person that invented the Kong. It took the dogs nearly 2 hours non-stop to work their breakfasts out of their Kongs (frozen minced turkey and mashed veggies). Here's Penny enjoying hers in the yard.

That Lucky is a smartie!! Smashing his down, hoping inertia and angular momentum will work to get him his meal!!! (*insert Einstein smiley here* )

I love that last shot of Penny! What a beauty!

They sure look happy with their kongs. I think Halo would enjoy a frozen kong, but she won't touch it unless I'm with her, so it kinda defeats the idea of giving her something to occupy herself. Will have to try it on a hot day, if we ever get one!

The only time I can get real good pics of Penny is if it's really bright out and the sun is behind me. And I love Dr. Seuss .

Yes, and that would be by bringing it over to me so I can dig my fingers into it for him .

Dog Dancer, Lucky would never touch his Kong when we left him alone. What helped was I would remove it as soon as I got in. He eventually caught on that he only got eat breakfast if no one was home. There are still times he's too anxious to eat when I leave but, I do notice he brings them onto the couch by the front window to thaw .

Green grass, black dog, bright red Kong, yes, but no-one mentioned the lovely collar. I really like that LP, and that last photo is a beauty. Love the intent look Lucky is giving his Kong in his 2nd photo. LOL.

LP, Penny and Lucky both look just beautiful!!!
I love to see pics of them. And yes, your pictures are SO clear!! Even with my DSLR, I can never get nice ones like that. Guess ya have to be smarter than the camera to use it

Nookie refuses to have anything to do with a frozen kong! He loves them once it thaws, and only takes him a few minutes to empty it. I made the mistake (when he was a baby) of "helping" him once. He had it so compacted and couldn't get anything out, so I took it, banged it on the counter to loosen it up, then gave it back. Well... every since then he will take the kong, toss it into the air, let it bounce on the floor and wait for the food to fall out

He will do it over and over until he has gotten it all, then leave it where it lies and walk away! He's a smart little bugger

Kongs don't work on my dogs . One of them she will jump up on my leg say "My treat is stuck, get it for me." If I ignore, she won't drop it she will throw it on my foot.

I love the pic of Lucky with the Kong in mid air, and the next one too, that expression on his face as he waits for it to tip over.

Thanks for the compliments...and for the ones about the collar too. I got them as part of a fundraiser for an awesome rescue in Toronto. I was totally impressed when they arrived. Here's a shot I took of Lucky today that shows his off really well. It's so appropriate for us .

Wow! What a wonderful photo, LP. 10 out of 10 for that one! Yes, good collar for your boy.

For those with dogs which have very powerful jaws, just watch for signs of wear on their teeth. Years of 'power chewing' Kongs by my ACDs led to badly worn teeth. My red boy, if he couldn't get out to go after a cow or sheep near the house yard, would grab a Kong, bite down hard, jump in the air shaking it and chomping it as hard as he could, and I'm talking dogs that bite hard enough to eventually split Kongs into 3 pieces by the way - 3 donuts. LOL. They'd wear their teeth on anything I suppose but they loved the Kongs. I don't complain if they separate the 3 donuts, they then become sheltie size.

We're fortunate that our guys don't bite/chew the Kongs, GF (especially seeing they're so expensive here). They just toss them around and lick the food out. One they're empty, the Kongs get ignored.

Love how you recycle yours .

I haven't priced a Kong for years, LP, so I'd probably get a shock if I knew what they cost here too. I stopped using them for the ACD's once I saw the damage. Must admit that some incidents talked about on an ACD forum where the dogs had gotten bottom jaws trapped in their Kongs did put me off as well. They are a great toy for playing Fetch, the dogs never know which direction they will bounce in. This sheltie didn't mind the full sized Kong, caught in a leap to grab it so her front feet are tucked under.

VEry nice photos. Could you dispense knowledge on photography as well as dogs? Sure would help me. Another poster, sorry, probably more than one other, but I'm thinking of Rick. Is it Rick? Out west with Goldens? He has stupendous photos too.

Nope, never a dog here either that would work on a Kong. I use muffler hangers, much bigger holes in them.

I have this cr@ppy old Easy Share . The only pics that turn out nice are usually ones that are taken in natural bright light and that are within a few feet of the subject. And if I'm lucky, it only takes about 40 shots to get one good one out of them. I also use Picassa editing to fudge around with the sharpness so that's kind of cheating I think .
