The Best Toy Ever (Guest Post by Buddy the Foster Dog)
Did you know that there are these things called Kongs, that are filled with food and treats?! They are SO YUMMY! And sometimes they even have CHEESE inside. Where have these things been all my life? Speaking of my life - I'm Buddy, and I'm a vagabond. I've lived with four different families so far, and I'm only four months old. The nice lady who I'm living with this week said that I could tell you about me today. But first let me say, that if you haven't seen some of these Kongs, you should ask your people to go get some for you right away. Yummmmmm. Okay, where was I. Right - my life. I started out with my brother Freckles and some other puppies. The people we lived with took the other puppies away, and then when just me and Freckles were left, they took us to a place called a shelter. It was scary there, but we had food and water and a safe place to stay.
Then my second family came and got me and took me to their house. They said I was their foster dog, and that I could live with them until I found a furever family. It was fun there. I got lots of attention from the littlest people. Then one day we went to a big store and I saw Freckles again, and I met some new people - my third family. I thought they might be my furever family when they took me home with them. I lived there for a week but they had a doggie that didn't like me very much. They finally said that I wasn't going to work out since their doggie was so unhappy, so they brought me back to the big store, where the nice lady who was with Freckles at the big store last time met me and took me home. She said my second family can't get me yet, but I get to go back to them on Saturday.
So in the meantime, I'm living with my fourth family, and the nice lady says I'm becoming a world traveler. She said Freckles is already at his furever family and she hopes I will find mine soon. In the meantime, I am having fun playing with the other dogs here. And enjoying the most awesomest toy ever - especially when the nice lady puts cheese in it!
There are a lot of other doggies here. I think the nice lady keeps getting confused because now there are three of us white doggies at once and she said that Ziggy and Noelle and I all look alike and it is hard to tell us apart. Even Noelle was confused when I came here because she seemed to think I was Ziggy at first. But Ziggy is lots bigger than me, and he's much faster at getting his Kong cleaned out. Did I mention that Kongs are the bestest toy invention ever? And now I see the nice lady is getting some more of them filled up with yummy food, so I have to go. Bye bye.
