It’s time to celebrate Jimmy becoming part of our family!! The very friendly people at Premier gave us a couple of toys to review for them.

Woooo A big box for me!!

Jimmy, you will not believe what is in here!!

Jimmy set his sights on the Bunny… Since Jimmy came to live here, all stuffies have been banished!!

I was no dummy… I know that treats go in this toy!!

Here are the items we picked to review:

The Twist N’ Treat:

Toy Description: The Twist ‘n Treat is the first and only 2-piece adjustable rubber treat dispensing toy. The rate of treat dispersal can be adjusted to suit the interest and ability of the dog. When first introducing the toy to your dog, we suggest leaving enough space in the opening to allow treats to fall our regularly, so your dog can “win the game.” Once your dog plays successfully with the Twist ‘n Treat, you can screw the opening tighter to extend the length of play. The adjustable opening allows the Twist ‘n Treat to be filled with a variety of hard, soft, and smear-able treats. Made of natural rubber. NOT recommended for strong chewers. Available in 3 sizes.

Well I sure like this toy lots. You want to know why??? It give me TREATS!!! I have the Tug a Jug and the Kibble nibble and Jimmy and I eat our breakfast and dinner out of them every day. But this toy was one we hadn’t tried. It is pretty easy, even on the tightest (Toughest) setting but for some of you doggies who don’t like to work hard for your reward it might be just right for you! One thing we haven’t tried yet is putting PEANUT BUTTER inside and getting to lick it clean like a Kong.

The Next Toy Review,

Pogo Plush

Toy Description: Pogo Plush toys are simply irresistible! The patent pending design provides a unique bounce-back action that dogs prefer over traditional stuffed plush toys. These toys are stuffing free, so there’s no mess if your dog likes to destroy plush toys! Our Pogo Plush toys are built with inner bouncy frames and free-floating squeakers that will give your dog hours of fun. Available in a large & small sizes.

Well, one thing was right, it was hours of fun, FOR JIMMY! He wouldn’t let me near it! Within the first 10 min he set about severing one of poor bunnies ears!! Well, Mommy saw that and took it away from him and thought maybe later she would let ME play with it, since I outgrew killing my stuffies. When she gave it to me later, HE STOLE it again!!! And this time he even got down to the rubber frame they talk about, and ate that too!! See, Jimmy doesn’t just destuff stuffies, he EATS stuffies, skin and stuffing alike! You think it was bacon flavored with that boy! (which is why all stuffies have been banished to the attic) So, We tried to play tug with it and it seemed to hold up pretty well, but if you have a stuffie killer in your house, beware- even with no stuffing, poor bunny never stood a chance!!

Now, that was a lot of words, so lets get to some more pictures.

Tester 1 and Tester 2 reporting for duty!

That sticker shows you what the purple rubber frame looks like inside the bunny, which most NORMAL dogs would never see, unless they live with Jimmy…

Ahhh Mr. Bunny, Let’s be FRIENDS!!!

Back off Kylie, it’s MINE!!

Mmmm this ear just has to go…

The Twist and Treat

The inside screw pieces. (Mommy put it in the top rack of the dishwasher to clean it- she’s crazy about germs- and she thinks it might have messed up the treads cause it is harder to screw together)

Come back here Mr. Treat dispenser!

oo another one! 🙂

It is helpful if you hold it still with your paw cause it wiggles all over!!

Mommy I think you need to refill it!
