We put peanut butter in that one. Other than the gross suction sucking sounds as our Newf gets his whole tongue in there, it's his crack in a kong! He's in heaven!

Too funny!

I dry off her nose and put PB directly on it sometimes...

Us dog owners are so easily amused!

I had a friend who put some directly onto the roof of his dogs mouth. It was amusing.

Today I drove Toby out to my son's home. My oldest will be giving Toby a very loving home. This is my son's first dog all his own in his new home. My son is a kind, compassionate and caring man....and an animal lover like his Mama. He's looking forward to training Toby and exercising Toby to work off some of that excess weight that seems to be slowing him down. I delivered Toby with a bag of food bought with donated money, donated treats and toys, the crate with a thick pad in it Kirk bought with Riverrat's money, collar and tags. I'm expecting one more donation to come in and that will be given to my son for buying two bowls and whatever else Toby needs.

I want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to all who helped me with this project. It meant a lot to me because I knew it meant a lot to Riverrat. I can't turn my back on my friends and I can't ignore an animal in need.

This had a great outcome. Toby will be well loved by my son, his wife and his 9 year old (step) daughter.

Here are two videos of Toby enjoying a game with his new "master" in a fenced in back yard.

I must say in just the few days I've had Toby, he had become attached to me. He stayed close to me at my son's house. He tried to follow me out to my car. My son had to hold him back. But I am sure in just a few days he will be as dedicated to my son and his family as he was to me.

I will keep you all posted as to how Toby's doing at my son's house over the next few weeks. I also will be posting pictures of the new, slimmer, trimmer, healthier Toby, too. My son and his family are very excited to have such a great dog with an interesting history. And I will be seeing Toby often.

This IS the best firearms forum on the internet, isn't it? Our Toby is home! - The Club House

Annrose, GATOR & I are very happy for Toby and his new Furever Home!!!. To us, there is no greater feeling of doing good as when you rescue or help rescue an animal in Need....
*TOBY: Gator and My wife think you do need some Blue Buffalo WEIGHT CONTROL food....

So how many of you that have followed this saga changed your wills to leave your pets to Winds?


Winds - I have 1 rabbit, 2 cats, 3 dogs, 3 horses, 7 goats, 25 chickens and about 50 fresh water fish ready to come your way!
