Dogs: A Game of Chess Perhaps?
This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Pet Expo in downtown Minneapolis. I was really excited to go because I got to hang out with some of my old Minnesota Valley Humane Society volunteer friends, Sue, Mona and Becky. Since the shelter closed last year, it’s been harder and harder to see one another, so this was a great chance to spend some time together and share our love of animals.
Becky’s goal was to Hug a Bulldog and Kiss a Pug (two fundraisers for local dog rescues), Mona and Sue’s was to see everything we could (and we did!), mine was to see what new and exciting pet products were available for pets (more to come!)
One of my most exiting finds isn’t all that new. In fact, I’ve seen variations of this for a long time via Nina Ottosson’s website. This one is from Trixie and is called Chess. I just love these type of dog activity toys. Although this one does not appear to be by Nina Ottosson, I have no doubt that it is modeled after one of her many toys.
I couldn’t wait to bring it home and try it out with Jasper and Lady. What I didn’t expect was how quickly one of them figured it out. Can you guess who?
