245/365 Dog treat ingenuity

Buster gets a glucosamine dog treat twice a day in this funny little red rubber toy. This Kong, as it's called, is pretty indestructible and he loves it.

He gets a treat in the morning when Dad gets up (and if Dad is taking too long in bed, Buster's amazing inner clock drives him to go remind Dad with a gentle whine). He gets his second treat after dinner, from me. As soon as he's finished his dinner, he trots over to me, opens up his big brown puppy eyes, and implores me (gently at first, then more insistent), that it's tiiiiiiiiiiime.

The treat gets stuffed down into the Kong through the larger end. The rings hold it in place, meaning he has to get creative and focus to get the treat out. Sometimes, if the treat is stuck especially well, Buster will hop up on a chair and toss the Kong off in order to shake the treat loose.
