There was a sale at Petsmart yesterday, where you can buy 2 toys and get the 3rd toy for free. We brought Raisin along so he can ‘pick out’ the toys he wanted. Almost immediately, he became fixated on the Kong Ballistic Action Pinwheel and wouldn’t stop staring. We knew that’s a toy he won’t get bored of easily. Also, everyone at the store marveled at how well behaved he was; the comment we most often received was – “He is so calm!”
We also got him a Chuckit! Flying Squirrel and Chuck it! ball, for when the weather gets better and we can play outside with him. He LOVES to chase balls; the Chuckit Flying Squirrel seemed like an interesting twist on the traditional frisbee.
Since we also had a $5 off coupon, we re-stocked Raisin’s favorite evening snack – beef raw hides in individual serving sizes.
The Kong Pinwheet toy is soft like a stuffie but it’s made out of a tough heavy duty material. It is most definitely well worth the money as Raisin hasn’t managed to tear it open yet. We had to supervise him of course, and any time that we saw him holding the toy in his paws and yanking on it, we’d step in and stop him immediately. So far, this toy has lasted way longer than the other two stuffies that we bought him.
We’ve learnt that if Raisin’s not sufficiently tired out, or if he’s bored, then he’ll find his own fun and the results are not fun for anyone in the household. Fifteen minutes later, he was completely tired and willingly laid down to relax.
