    anyone else have a dog that cannot figure out a kong? I left Summer with her very first kong ever (I'm a bad mommy) and came back and the kong is not touched. The food sticking out of the ends was eaten but it's still full. Mia is going to town on it now. Summer's loss I guess.

    For the record in about 3 minutes, Mia had the kong emptied.

    Nia tries just a little but doesn't try any harder.. All food puzzle toys actually...it's just too much work for her..

    Oooooh it's okay when our pooches aren't the brightest crayons in the box. I had a dog IQ test book one day...n' lets just say my Pookins is learning challenged. One of the tests was put a light magazine over a full food bowl, will your dog:
    A Dive right past the offending magazine and eat
    B Use a paw to manipulate the magazine off the dish
    C Look at you longingly, waiting for YOU to take off the magazine

    Of course the manipulative answer was worth points. Sophie would look at the dish in puzzlement, even if she was way hungry, and walk away. She never figured out Kong toys at all except how to reduce the Kong octopus to pulp in an hour.

    Poor Summer!

    Though I was watching AFV tonight and in tears at the lab and the invisible screen... They had taken the screen out of their door and the dog would not walk through, standing all bouncy at the door, the guy even walked through and she still waited for him to open the door from the outside... LOL

    When Tucker was a puppy he wouldn't touch it while we were gone, he'd clean it like 5 minutes after we got back. He was too stressed about us being gone to touch it.

    I totally misread your title as "I have a kong, stupid dog" and was like....why did Mia not take that from her in .5 seconds?? Lol.
