What is in your Super Secret Pug Artillery?

Here is Arliss with his Kong. For the uninitiated, a Kong is a hollow rubber dog toy that you can stuff with peanut butter, frozen yogurt, dog treats, etc. Dogs will chew on it and try to get the treats out of the center. Arliss will play with the Kong for about 30 minutes tops, which is great! It’s amazing what I can do in 30 minutes when I don’t have a Pug bossing me around! Here you can see him savoring a peanut butter filled Kong. Sometimes it looks like he is holding the Kong like he is drinking from a baby bottle. The Kong is just one tool in our War Chest of Super Secret Pug Artillery. I will talk about our other tools some other time. Today it’s all about the Kong! So to buy time, and to quell his need to be on me, near me, and/ or touching me at all times, sometimes I need to bring out the Kong. To preserve the Kong’s powers and allure I am very judicious about when and where to use it. This situation qualified as I needed to wrap presents, without Arliss’ “help”.

I think I need to invest in a couple Kongs! Pug "help" is great and all, but who want to open presents with ripped wrapping paper?
