My New Toy!!

Mom sure made up for not allowing me to blog by presenting me with this wonderful toy made by

Nina Ottosson!

Mom has a friend named Baby Patches and Baby Patches has a wonderful web site called Nip And Bones, LLC.

Mom visited one day and found me the fantastic toy,

Dog Finder, by Nina Ottosson.

Here is how the toy is described on Baby Patches’ website:

“The idea behind the Dog Finder is the dog or cat is to look for treats by moving blocks in four different directions. The block can only be lifted at the end of each track. Under each block there is a depression where treats can be hidden… ”

  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Suits dogs and cats of all ages and sizes
  • A tricky and activating game for you and your dog or cat
  • Plastic, easy to clean
The Dog Finder also comes with a handy booklet “Fun Challenging Games & Puzzles” that you can play when using this toy. It also includes a Training Guide and a CD. Like the doggie on the cover says “not that I need it!”
Mom said she was surprised at just how fast I learned how to use this puzzle.
Why should she be surprised? I am a SHELTIE after all!
We are listed as number 6 in intelligence out of 100 doggies! I’m no slouch!
Mom timed me when I first used this puzzle and she said it took me less than 60 seconds to figure it out!
Mom didn’t even have to explain it to me. I saw where she put the  mouth watering  treats that Baby Patches’ Mommy sent to me as a surprise ,and it was off to the races!

Mom said her favorite part of watching me play with the Dog Finder was when I would pick up the hidey bones that the treats go under,  carefully  bringing them over to my coffee table fort and depositing  them underneath.
The first time I played with the Dog Finder, I put at least half of those hidey bone covers in my fort! It made me feel secure to keep them there, safe from the meddling paws of my kitty brother, Cody.
Check out how smart I am, you can even hear my heavy breathing, I was so excited!
Be sure to watch til the end!
This is my favorite toy now and Mom said she wishes she had pawchased it long ago.  She was just too cheap at the time and didn’t.
She said that she loves it so much and loves the quality that she is going to buy me MORE Nina Ottosson toys  from Nip and Bones! YAY!! There are many wonderful toys made by  Nina Ottosson on the Nip and Bones website.
Mom said it is going to be super hard to decide which one to pawchase next.
 I think she should leave that decision up to me!
I can easily go without blogging if it means I am going to get great toys like this!
The problem is, guess who else likes it?
Mom THOUGHT she had put it out-of-the-way when she laid the box on top of the dining room table.
As you can see, she thought WRONG

Look closely in the box and you will see what I mean

When I am done playing Mom has to hide the Dog Finder in the closet with the door shut.
I don’t want any kitty germs on it!
Barks and licks and love, Dakota
Mom and I weren’t compensated in any way for this review. Mom pawchased the above toy on her own. Baby Patches’ Mom only gave us the treats as a special surprise and we say THANK YOU!!!!
