Siberians Are So Literal..

You all might remember back in November I bought Bet this little treat ball. You fill it with kibble and when she rolls it around on the floor, kibble falls out.

Being she is a Border Collie (even one that has renounced her 'Border Collie citizenship'), I rolled it around on the floor for her a few times to show her how it worked, she figured it out right away and she has gotten many hours of entertainment from it.



X discovered the 'treat ball' the other night and this is how he solved the problem of getting at the kibble inside.



Siberians are so literal.

I must send this to my Afghan Hound friend who just doesn't understand why my dogs don't have more "toys". Her dogs never eat the toys. lol

Too true!!! Bean does the same thing and then he also eats the toy so I have to watch him to take the toy pieces away from. Bet needs another one.

My Siberians have always found the shortest, fastest 'solution' to all their 'problems'! LOL

Two dogs coloring. One says "You have to stay in the lines." The Husky says "I hate coloring with a Border Collie."

"Siberians are so literal"...and delayed gratification is NOT their strong suit! I can see it now: next fundraiser will be for more toys for Bet :-)

Poor Bet!

We have a Giggle ball that looks identical to the final product. Secret to treat balls and Siberians is to buy the hard plastic ones. Those are even Barbarian proof!
