This KONG Biscuit Ball has been the savior of our dinner hour. Before I purchased the Kong Biscuit Ball, I had this problem…Every time I sat down to eat, my otherwise lovely lab mix would suddenly apply his laser eyes stare of doom. You just cannot escape those limpid eyes, staring, staring…staring. Reaching, boring – into your very soul – tugging, pulling…an irresistible force that always ended up in me throwing choice pieces of dinner into a ready and gaping mouth. And STILL, I’d have to submit to more of those…EYES. LOOKING. WATCHING. Every forkful was intensely studied. I could feel the eyes, tracking, observing, wanting, hungering…THE PAIN on my dog’s face was palatable. We weren’t sharing. He NEEDED little morsels from our plates or he would punish us with that unremorseful STARE. It was like this EVERY NIGHT. I was at my wit’s end. My toes were being DROOLED on. I had enough. I had to do something lest my heart give in and never-ceasing tidbits leave my plate in an attempt to find relief from my beloved canine’s masterful stares and looks of dejection and starvation.
I went to the Internet on a search for answers and found the Kong Biscuit ball. RELIEF! All I have to do is load this thing up with some big boy biscuits (little ones will fall out and result in laser eyes immediately turned upon me in an instant) and suddenly my dog is absolutely and totally occupied trying to pry a biscuit from the depths of this dinner-saving contraption with all the intensity of a category 5 hurricane.
Seriously…when there is a biscuit in this thing he will sit with it balanced in between his paws and go to town trying to dig and pry the biscuit out as if it contained the answers to life. He won’t stop until he’s retrieved every little crumb from the interior. His tongue muscles could probably lift 20 lbs from the workout they get exploring the inner cavities of this amazing red ball.
So far the biscuit ball has held up to his chewing and we’ve called our dog Mr. Destruco for a REASON – but the Kong is impervious so far. It’s held up to his gnawing and slobbering as well as his claws (which are sharp as they have accidentally raked down my thigh once when he was trying to prove that a 60 lb dog really can fit in your lap) as he tries every which way to get his treat out.
All I can say is that Kong should be in the running for the Nobel prize for the peace it has brought us during dinner (no more laser eyes!) as well as when we want to watch a movie without 50 doggie restroom breaks (he has a knack for knowing when we are busy and then insists he must be let out the sliding glass door into the backyard lest he pee a lake on our Pergo floors).
You need this ball if you want to keep your precious pooch occupied. It’s like a doggie babysitter in a ball. It’s a MUST HAVE cure for laser eyes and for adding a bit of fun to your doggie’s day.
Highly recommended! Don’t forget your mutt this Christmas! Max says, “Get a KONG Biscuit Ball !”
