Foto Phriday: The Ultimate Dog Toy

Posted on

I may have created the ultimate dog toy.

I did it by combining two dog toys.

Behold: The Ultimate Dog Toy

Wait, that is a lie.

The green/blue outer ball is actually a cat toy. It was gifted to us by my mother-in-law and cousin cat Rosie.

The inner pink squeaky toy was my pup Bailey’s Valentine’s Day gift.

(I got everyone in my house a Valentine’s Day gift, including the dog, hoping that someone would give me a gift. No such luck.)

Bailey already loved the green/blue cat toy ball and played with it all the time anyway.

But I took it to the next level when I squeezed all the air out of the rubber squeaky toy and put it inside of the green/blue ball.

Bailey & her toy

Bailey pushes it, steps on it, sticks her paws and nose in there and she still CANNOT figure out how to get the pink ball out of there. I could easily remove it for her with my bad ass opposable thumbs.

But really, what would be the fun in that?


Your past shapes you. It can’t be undone.

What I Learned This Week – 8/19/12

I had a dream. A dream to take the cooking time out of bacon preparation. A dream to eliminate the walk to the back of the store for pre-cooked bacon in a box. My dream was to hang bacon right next to the beef jerky in a convenience store near you for easy, on-the-go snacking. I was mentally preparing myself to build this empire.

…Then I saw that Johnsonville had beaten me to it. Beaten me to my convenience junk food dream. And I found this out at the dollar store, no less! What a sense of disappointment, jealousy, and failure I now feel.

Damn you Johnsonville, for thinking of my idea before I did!

What I learned this week is that I am always a day late and a dollar short.

I’ve also learned that watching TV shows with the closed captioning turned on while on the TV Guide Channel can cause motion sickness. I like to watch Ugly Betty on the TV Guide Channel while my baby naps. But then the TV listings scroll vertically while the closed captioning scrolls horizontally. It makes me sort of seasick.
