Flight Of The Bumblebee
March 23, 2012 § 11 Comments
Poor Teddy. Teddy was munchkin’s birthday present. And, boy, did Lil’ Miss Maple love him… to death. Who knew that Maple’s lovebites could have caused Teddy to sprout cotton batting out from his nose. We certainly couldn’t let Maple continue on with this dangerous love affair, for fear of her swallowing some of Teddy’s cotton innards.
We had to find a more durable partner for Miss Maple, one that would survive her playful antics. And we did. The KONG Wubba (S$12.50 @ Polypet) passed the test and has proven that it could live up to our rough-and-tough furball. What has made the Wubba even more endearing, in Maple’s eyes, is that it squeaks when its middle is squeezed. *squeak, squeak, SQUEAK*
Unfortunately, for a small dog like Maple, it takes quite a bit of force to make the Wubba squeak. She knows the Wubba can spout all kinds of funny noises, and it frustrates her to no end that she can’t make it ‘speak’ with her jaws alone. That’s when the thrashing begins!
Feisty Miss Maple has learnt that if she slams the Wubba hard enough against the floor, it may let out a squeak.
We’re so pleased with the results of the Wubba. Mind you, we often have to initiate the play by exciting Miss Maple with the Wubba, as she will seldom pick it up on her own. But, once we have her hooked, she’ll go at it until she tires herself out. Here she is after a play session… Zzzz…
And, to give you a better idea of how Miss Maple entertains herself with the Wubba, check out her performance in the “Flight of the Bumblebee”! Have a buzzing great weekend, everyone 😀
