What in the World...?

Woo everypup and everycat, it's me - Dave! This post is dedicated to our friends over at Jan's Funny Farm. On the post I made a week ago today, the one I called Wubba Time, they left a comment that read, "Okay, we love the shots of you having fun. But what in the world is a wubba?" Woo, you pups! And you kitties! It's a really great toy made by the guys who make Kongs. I just broke out a new one, so let me show this to you!

Here's my new Kong.

When Mom and Zim met Guinness and Shiloh's mom and dad, they gave us each of us in the Ao4 a Wubba! Mine is purple to match my collar... and Storm has a red one, Ammy has green, and Zim has blue! Isn't that so cool!?!?

They come in several sizes and they even make them for cats! Zimmie recently sent one to his best friend Huffle! My new purple one is the big size and I just love it!

I my Wubba!

You can play tug with them, like I'm doing in the photo above, or your mom can throw it and you can run after it and bring it back! I love doing both of those things! Here are some cool action shots Mom took with that sports setting on the new camera.

(It's a Nikon CoolPix P90, for those who have asked!)

I make bringing it back look easy, don't I?

Gotcha, Wubba!

But sometimes the Wubba is tricky and tries to get away! I had to wrestle a bit with it here:

I got it! I got it!

Don't worry! I got it under control!

Safely bringing the Wubba under control!

With as hot and humid as it's been here lately, Mom and I can only play for a short period of time in the morning before she claims I am close to getting over-heated.

I have no idea what she means, though. I'm from Texas; I can handle the heat!

And that, pups and kits of JFF, is a Wubba! I highly recommend this toy to all of you!

And many thanks again to Guinness and Shiloh's mom and dad! Woo!


PS: Mom, let's crank up the air-conditioning!


  1. Whoa, Dave! You can sure put the whoop on a Wubba, that is fer shur!

  2. Wubba's are cool huh! Glad you got to have some fun and hopefully you cooled off quickly so you could get back out there! Mom says even though I am supposed to be of African descent that I can't handle the heat....I need my ac...what can I say! ;) I missed you all!


  3. We are soooo glad that you're having a grreat time with those wubbas!

    Guinness & Shiloh

  4. Oh yes!

    Wubbas ROKHK!

    I like to toss mine around and khatch it!

    PeeEssWoo: Maybe woo should tell your mom how adversely affekhted your kholour skills are when it gets TOOOOOO hot!?!

  5. Thanks, Dave! We really appreciate this explanatpry post with photos. The cats don't do tug, but we dogs love it, so we dogs think the Wubba looks like loads of fun. What a neat way to run off your energy before the day gets too hot.

    It's been way too hot and humid here in GA too, so we haven't been too playful but we still get our exercise because we still have to take Jan on at least 2 long walks a day.

  6. Hi Dave
    Great wubbas - great pictures. Thanks for the info on the camera too.
    We dont have wubbas as yet but you made them look such fun perhaps we should get one each.
    love and kisses

  8. Yes the wubba is an awesome toy - we have them too and they float in the water too

    our mommy makes us stay inside in the heat too - something about woodrows bad lungs and heart - but we play fetch in the hallway - plus we play bitey face all over the house until mommy yells

    woodrow sweetie mj

  9. Once again, a great instructional lesson from Dave! Well done!


  10. Woo Dave,
    woo should sent this to the Wubba manwoofacturor and maybe woo'll get to be their new spokesdog! Outstanding!

    (My wubba is blue & half-eaten. ~Jack)

  11. Wubba's is just the best. I like how you all have your own colours.

  12. It's a great toy, isn't it, Dave? Looks like you got quite the big tongue there from all that running.

    woo, the OP Pack

  13. Wubba we understand. Cool air we understand. Tug we udnerstand.

    Can you explain "bring it back?" That is not in our Human to Siberian Husky translation book. Do we need the labrador book for that?

  14. That wubba sure looks fun!

    Your pal,

  15. I too love my wubba, especially my water one, they are the best. =)

  16. woofs, me gotta git one of those..so far mama has left me deprived..

    b safe,

  17. Dave is such a good boy!!

    But I think you should let Ammy have your Wubba too!


  18. I love my wubba! I was playing with it last night at midnight. Mum and dad were so happy.

  19. Oooh, I love the action shots!! I haven't got a Wubba either, although I have heard a lot about them...hmm, next time my humans are in a pet shop, I must get them to check and see if they have them here in NZ!

  20. Hi, Dave!
    All those pictures with the explanation are pawesome!
    I have a red wubba!
    Kisses and hugs

  21. Scampi has a wubba too, although his looks just like him (a spotted cow)
    I don't play with toys, I just de-stuff them, and there is nothing to de-stuff with those, so I guess he will have it a long time.

  22. We love our Wubba, it has held up forever!! Sorry it is hot AND humid for you!

  23. Hi Dave!! Whoa cool wubba and in my favourite color too! Luvly pics as always, thanks for sharing!

    Cheers & Chuckles,

  24. Hi Dave,
    It looks like a fun toy indeed. We haven't seen it here yet but we have a lot of other Kong stuff so it must be on the way. This would be a great toy to take to the dog run with us especially as I love to retrieve balls and Dixie loves to play tug of war. Thanks for the great review and the lovely pics.

  25. That Wubba looks like so much fun and we love your action shots! It looks like it'd be a great toy to take to the beach!

  26. You make it look too easy! My mom thinks I should be able to do that!


  27. Ah, those mild Manhatten temperatures. The soft, gentle summer breezes cooling the air. The envigerating quest to retrieve the Wubba (Homer kills them as quick as we get them). No Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore. Does Miss Gulch live in your neighborhood? Has Profeesor Marvel's wagon been by lately?

  28. We love our wubbas too... Moxie even managed to dismantle a water wubba... but the others are still around!

  29. WUBBA!!! Wanna come and play over in Hawaii? It's not as hot! :)


  30. Wubba luvah here too! Dave, you play with your wubba so much more elegantly than I... I need to take lessons from you!

  31. Hey Dave,
    Can Sophie come over to your house and play with YOUR Wubba; something happened to ours and it don't work no more.
