Featured Product: Treat Dispensing Chewball

As I referenced in my post this morning (here), I found these at PetsMart, or you can find them at Amazon here.

I think the effectiveness of this particular toy depends on your dog. Annabelle has no trouble getting the food out.  Solo is less interested in it, depending on what you put in it.  With him, it was all about finding the right motivation.

The challenge as well is to find the right size of treat to put in.  The make ones specifically for it, but I wanted to use what we had around the house.  And it has to be big enough to stay in the ball, but not so big that they never get the treat out.  At one point, I did have to break the animal crackers in half so that Solo was getting something out of the ball, but not everything at once.

It did amuse him and keep him occupied for quite a while yesterday.  I will have to wait until tomorrow to see if he will fall for it again!  All in all, it could be a toy worth keeping around for those boring, rainy days!

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
