Or is it tempt-the-greedy? LOL!
Especially when we did not have a proper run in the park, Mummy lets us play “mind games” as in puzzles to solve. She keeps calling it that but for us, it’s just tempt-the-greedy!
This was my Christmas present but it was too simple so George is having a go at it. The last time he tried, he would pick out one treat and ran away to hide to eat it. Today he managed not to be afraid of the puzzle. He stayed at it and ate all the treats in the process. Well done, Georgie!
This is an old puzzle that Mummy bought for me when at Crufts earlier this year.It doesn’t work very well –It gets stuck sometimes and I have to work very hard at it, pawing my way through each one.Actually I get to every treat faster than Mummy can put them in!
This is another “game” that Aunty Tory gave me. This one takes a little more than brute strength. I can either paw at it till the cover topples over.Or I lift the string handle and ha! ha! I opened it!Easy-peasy!
Georgie gets to sniff out what’s under those covers. These are the very first ones he played with – and he managed to turn them over to get the treats.Georgie is getting good at these “tempt-the-greedy” games and soon he’ll be playing with my puzzles too.
And along came Miuccia last night and –She immediately tackled Geroge’s toy.May’s comment: Mental stimulation/problem solving or just feeding the greed but at least they are working hard to get to it.
The blue toy is from Nina Ottoson – really well made and quality toys. Will probably look to get a Level 2 for Darcy. The wooden puzzle doesn’t work very well but she still managed to get to the treats.
The box toy with string handle is from Trixie Dog Toys.
