Today is another Growing Up With Chewy post! I hope you’ve enjoyed watching our puppies grow as much as we have, so let’s take a look at them now.
As you can see, Jefferson (left) especially looks even bigger than he did last month, and he’s weighing in at 75 lbs. Saoirse looks about the same, coming in at 53 lbs. She’s definitely the petite one between the two of them.
This month we had the opportunity to review the Kong Wobbler Toy*.
These come in both small and large sizes (we clearly have the large size) and retail for $15 on Chewy.com (small is $13).
This is a lot like the Friskies Pull And Play toy we reviewed in the Monthly Meow last summer, where you have the hard plastic toy and you fill it with treats and the dogs are supposed to knock the toy around to get the treats out. The bottom part of the toy is filled with sand so it never fully falls over, just wobbles. Think Weebles.
I need to start this off by saying that these puppies are MERCILESS when it comes to toys, especially Saoirse. She murders a new toy typically within a day. Kong is notorious for making high quality toys that can withstand even the toughest dogs you can imagine, and this one was no exception. The photo above is a before picture, and the one below is after them playing with this toy for about 3 weeks.
(Side note: These guys love the camera. Any time it’s out they’re ready for some screen time.)
As you can see Saoirse really did do a number on this guy, but it hasn’t started to crack or come apart anywhere, despite how rough she’s been on it. And I’m happy to report that the puppies absolutely LOVE this thing, Saoirse especially. We’ve been filling it with Cheerios or some other corn free cereal, or training treats and they go absolutely insane trying to knock the snacks out. It’s fun for them to play and it’s a lot of fun to watch them figure out how to get the treats out. If we tell Saoirse to ‘hit it’ she’ll send it flying across the carpet with her paw. I tried to get a short video of them doing this, but they just didn’t turn out because the dogs were running so fast.
Final verdict, this is fantastic, especially if you have a dog that tends to be really rough on their toys. If they ever manage to destroy this, I will absolutely buy them a new one!
With that, we end today’s post. Thank you for reading, and thank you to Chewy.com for sending this to me for review!
