Area Pug Eats Entire Dinner in Two Bites!

January 8, 2011, Medford MA - Tonka Boyce, a Boston area pug reportedly ate an entire bowl of home made gourmet food in just two bites this evening. While some believe this was in order to not miss a down of the NFL wildcard game, Joe Boyce, a member of Tonka's staff thinks otherwise.

"He eats with a lot of passion, and I used an ice-cream scoop to serve the food, so it all stuck together - allowing him to gobble it all up in two bites" said Boyce.

Tonka, pictured here begging for dinner, is known for his aggressive nature when it comes to food and treats, and scavenging for various unmentionables when out for walks or at the park. Still, the inhaling of over 1/2 cup of food in only two bites remains a shock to those closest to him.

The latest update reports that Tonka is currently napping on top of the sofa-back while watching football. No reports of vomiting have been received, but we will continue to monitor and report developments as they come in.

Hahahhaa, that is hilarious and too cute! I don't want to encourage Tonka to keep up with this practice, but the pugs totally do. ;)

Ginger's nickname is "Hoover" as in vacuum - she eats so fast she doesn't even chew her food, she just inhales it!! Avg time to eat her bowl of food = <10secs!!!
