This Kong is the King
In my continuous quest for a dog toy that will withstand the willful wrecking-ball known as Wonderbutt, one product stands out for making it at least 4 months in our household without being torn apart.
The only reason I have procrastinated my awarding of the P.A.W. to this particular item is because of Wonderbutt’s stubbornness in being filmed or photographed using the toy. Every time I pull out a camera, he suddenly decides the toy carries the doggie plague.
I realized, though, that there are no failures in blogging – merely plenty of opportunities to make fun of yourself. So, here is some footage of Wonderbutt NOT playing with his favorite toy – the Kong Wubba.
Unfortunately for Wonderbutt, I am much more stubborn than he is. After stalking him for several days, I was finally able to catch him in the act of playing with the Blue Bomb.
Note the melodious squeaking that emanates from this toy. After more than 4 months, Wonderbutt has not been able to kill the squeaker. But, our daughter, Dimples, is ready to stab it in the heart with an ice pick. Her vehement hatred for this object can be explained by Wonderbutt’s amazing ability to pinpoint the worst times to begin squeaking it – under her feet at the dinner table, or while she is watching a program on T.V. It is a true testimony to Dimples’ integrity that the toy has not mysteriously disappeared.
So, the Kong Wubba is truly deserving of the P.A.W. award. It has survived both Wonderbutt and Dimples in the Firepants household, and that is an achievement that must be noted.
