Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. We (Laney and I) received the Kong toy to review as part of Chewy.com‘s blogger review program. Since Laney has yet to learn how to write, I am reviewing on her behalf. As always, all opinions and pictures are my own! (oh and Laney’s) See Laney’s other posts here and here !
It’s only the third day of summer officially, but it’s been in the 100s here for a while. So what happens when your fur child wants to play, but is the color of asphalt and absorbs the sun’s heat so quickly that you’re afraid she’ll burst into flames or pass out from heat stroke?
Take the fun indoors, duh.
The dog-child is a huge fan of any toy she can shake and shred (especially when you’ve freshly vacuumed). Most of the time it looks like it snowed indoors because of this habit. In fact, I was going to name this post “When your dog is actually a Velociraptor” Just kidding. Maybe.
So, when Chewy approached me to review this Kong toy–I thought “perfect, Laney will love it.” The round part squeaks and we’ll be able to play tug of war (me from the comfort of the couch).
Laney is 40 lbs (30 if we don’t over-feed her over the weekend) of pure excitement when she realizes she’s getting some sort of treat/new toy. This one was no exception.
The problem? She would rather play with the human part of the toy (the handle) rather than the indestructible squeaky part. She almost cut through the rope before I even got the chance to photograph it! (Velociraptor)
Even though we didn’t use it as intended, she still had lots of fun shaking and chewing up this particular toy. And since she hasn’t completely destroyed it yet, I would say it lives up to the Kong name brand. It’ll be a toy we bring everywhere (Nana and Pop’s house, vacations, etc.)
P.S. Is anyone else’s dog secretly a Velociraptor when it comes to chewing up toys at an alarming rate? Or is it just mine?
