Serene Sunday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  This is a little bit of a different Sunday post for us - we've been out walking, but Mom didn't take any photos of serene scenery.  Something about an 87 pound camera not pairing up well with a torn rotator cuff ... but we aren't sure of details.  ANYWAY, we do have some serene photos for you and they started a bit like this:

"Hi, Mom.  Can we do special chew toys or shall I just use Cam's neck?"
"Please, Mom!"

See, Maggie gets tired of her GoughNuts toys and needs something else to chew on. Other than me, that is. So, under supervision, there are other toys we can chew on!

Me and Mags with our toys

I have a KONG dental stick and Mags has a KONG tire. Mom crammed a treat into each and oh, did we have fun chewing!

This is me with my toy:

"I love this toy!"

Maggie used to be allowed to use this type of toy, but once she got her big-girl teeth in, she would tear chunks off these in a matter of seconds. Her KONG toys are the black kind:

"Here's my toy, everybody!"

She can get chunks off those, too, but not as fast.  Same with the traditional style of KONGs.  As long as Mom is watching, she's good to go.

Me, making sure I got all traces of the treat out

I love playing with our toys. It gives us both a great sense of peacefulness.


Don't worry. I know she's behind me.

And guess what?!?  Our visitor arrives tomorrow!!!  Do you know who's coming yet?
