Yesterday, for his birthday, I got Jes one of those toys that dispenses treats if turned the right way. What I completely neglected to inspect was just how durable the toy was...I was too busy thinking about watching him play by the rules. He's a Lab, duh, they have their own rules.
In less than 5 minutes, he "beat" the game, and now the toy has a gigantic hole in it. And after he ripped a hole in it, I got the "Hey Dad! I figured it out. Aren't you proud of me?" look.
Oh well, judging by his tail, it was an enjoyable 5 minutes.
aww Jes you are such a smart boy, oh and Happy Birthday big guy!
LOL Happy birthday Jes!!
which version was it?
I have a number and not all dogs cna have each type that's for sure
no idiot at all - a nice present all the way even if it lasted a shorter period than you'd expected

It was shorter than I expected, but it was still fun to watch. A long time ago I gave up on finding toys that he couldn't demolish, so anytime I buy one I'm under the assumption it won't last long. For some reason, it didn't cross my mind that he would eat this one...I just thought he would try to get the food out. Well, I guess that he did, but I was envisioning brains over brawn here.
Five minutes of pure joy on a birthday? Priceless!

Ha! Yes, Labs seem really to understand Occam's Razor. Once we were at a doggie fun day hosted by our local shelter. There were various games, including a "Treat Shell Game." You and your dog would walk up to this low table, and a volunteer would put a treat under one of three cups and move the cups around. The object was for the dog to use its nose to knock over the correct cup and get the treat. So the volunteer does the whole thing, and then Theo looks at me, and I give him the "OK." And Theo DIVES over the table and under the volunteer's chair, knocking her over, to get at the ENTIRE BAG OF TREATS she's hidden under the chair. He shoves his head in the bag and starts wolfing them down as fast as possible until I can get him under control. It was as though he said, "WTF is she doing with that one treat? Duh, there's a WHOLE BAG RIGHT THERE!!"
The thing i love most about labs, is that they are clever enough to make us, mere humans, think they are a bit short in the brain cell department, catches me out every time :-)
Wishing you a very happy birthday Jes!
We had one of those for our boys (it appeared in our yard while we were away). Instead of pushing the toy to get the treat, they decided to eat their way into the toy to get to the treat
