First off, let’s get this out of the way…
The Bucks beat the Bulls at the Bradley Center for the first time in their last 10 tries last night. There are few wins that feel as good as that, because every Bucks game at the Bradley Center turns into a game full of Bulls fans. It’s more or less the United Center North.
Of course this only happens when the Bulls are good and the Bucks are bad. While the Bucks have improved this year, the city hasn’t still quite taken to attending games. Let’s just say Milwaukeeans are a bit on the fair-weather side when it comes to the Bucks. Due to that locals lack of interest, plenty of tickets are available to our Illinois f(r)iends 90 miles south.
Let’s not forget the flip-side of this. Bulls fans are every bit as fair-weather as Bucks fans. We hadn’t seen them take the drive up I-94 during the Eddy Curry/Tyson Chandler era. They only make that trip if their team is good enough to justify them doing so. Continue reading
Less than 5 minutes. That’s all it took.
That’s all it took for Peach to gnaw straight through the rope of the Tug-A-Jug, rendering it a different product than what was originally purchased. This sounds like the toy was ruined and there was no coming back, but that’s not the case. Thankfully the toy still provides some mentally stimulating play for our dog.
Above you’ll see my video review, I wanted to give a summary of the items in the box and what their cost is on Amazon. The box costs $20 a month from ReggieBox.com. Overall pretty happy with our first box (Peach loves it), but certainly will be happy to see even better value going forward. Continue reading
I’m not sure if, as a function of being my own dog owner (with my wife) for the first time, or if I just never noticed it, but it seems like the last 5+ years has seen quite the boom in dog toys that make your dog think or work for their food or treats. I’ve read enough and learned enough, via my entire life having a family dog, to know that mental stimulation can be a great thing for your dog. If you have a destructive dog, it can help curb that. If you have a dog that has no real behavioural issues, treat dispensing toys can just be another fun thing they get to do here and there.
This is the first treat ball we tried ourselves and to this day it’s our favorite. Peach gets her dinner in this every day and she looks forward to it. When we fill in with food, she gives a few whines while we screw it back together and get ready to give it to her. Once dropped to the floor, she gets her nose and starts pushing the ball along, coming back to get whatever bits of food fell out while she was rolling along. Continue reading
