The Best Dog Toy Everrrrrrrr

On April 26th I set out on a quest to seek the ultimate dog toy for my ADHD pooch. Well my friends, I am excited to let you know that my quest is over. The journey is complete. Mission accomplished.

I went to Meijer on Sunday night to take advantage of a 4 for $10 Diet Coke deal. As always, I strolled through the doggy treat isle to find a little surprise to bring home to the little goblin creature. I hopelessly glanced over the rows of Kongs, plush squeakers, and other things that Bo would make worthy of a Destroyed in Seconds episode. This time, an orange ball grabbed my attention. It had an opening on each end and little flaps to keep treats trapped inside. Doubtful, but still willing, I bought the Purina orange ball for about $5 and took it home. I put a little treat in it and presented it like a sacrificial offering on the carpet. Bo immediately ran up to it and tested it out. He was completed intrigued, dumbfounded, and curious of what this new marvel was in front of him. He rolled it around several times and did the usual routine of chomping down on it to get the treat out. But this time, the treat did not come out! A few minutes went by. Still nothing. An hour later. Still working on it. By about 2am, he finally gave up and fell asleep. Yahtzee. I thought it was just a mere fluke, but the same results were repeated last night. Same deal tonight. We have a winner folks. Hallelujah, holy shit!
