So we're trying a new thing here in the Southern Fried household.
Mom decided to put our breakfast into kongs and freeze them so we'd have to expend a little more effort in eating.
You know, instead of inhaling our food in mere seconds.
The theory is that by working harder to get our food, we'd be less nutso when she got home from work. And it would make us work our brains a little. Back when we were puppies and ate kibble, she used Amazaballs to slow us down and it worked great.
So, today we started.
It did not go as planned.
Oh, we started right in on them before mom left for work. But at the end of the day, only one pug had finished her kong. Licked it completely clean. And it wasn't the pug that mom thought it would be.
It was Petunia!
Tallulah is the pug who will eat anything, anytime, anywhere. Remember the time she ate most of a bag of Isabelle's joint supplement? Remember the time she ate an entire peach, pit and all? And the poop? Mom figured that Tallulah would work that kong until every last bit of quinoa and fish was gone.
Nope. She left most of it in the kong, even though it was thawed out by the time mom got home.
We're trying it again tomorrow since the kongs are already loaded and frozen. If Tallulah doesn't figure it out, we have a plan B. Mom will put the food in a regular bowl and freeze it into a patty that way. Tallulah chomps and gobbles, so it has to be frozen to the bottom of the bowl.
Hopefully something will work.
Really, mom should have known that Petunia would lick that kong.
