I've been really busy this week with the new book and I'm falling behind on my blogging! Also fighting a migraine yesterday and today, but wanted to try to at least get a quick (if late) Follow Up Friday post up!
So, here's Follow-Up Friday - a chance to answer those questions and follow up on the news!
A Slightly-less Puzzled Puppy
On Monday, I mentioned the mischief Rita was making, solving her food puzzle when no treats were in it, but acting completely flummoxed by it when it's full of treats.
SlimDoggy said "I turned [the pieces] upside down so they were easier to grab onto and [Maggie] did it with ease. Try it and see if it works for Rita..."
I tried it, and it worked much better! First there was a bit of a delay while she tried to chew on one puzzle piece:
And then another wee delay while she thought about it for a bit...
And another delay while she tried to cheat and just suck the treats out of the hidden compartments like an anteater...
After all that, she had a flash of insight, pulled them all out, and enjoyed her Zuke's Minis!
We also tried a variation:
And now she's bored again....
On Wednesday, I shared the blurb for my new novel, Rescue Me, Maybe. Thanks so much to everyone for the nice comments.
Pam from Words with Wieners asked, "What would it take to get a signed copy of both books? I mean, after the new one comes out, of course." It wouldn't take much at all. Email me!
The Bedding & The Beast
Remember when my sis took over Monday Mischief with Reggie and he'd chewed through the underside his KONG bedding? (Cuz he likes the underside of things...):
Well, Life with Wrigs said, "I hope you sent that photo of the Kong bed to the company. That is a
serious flaw! How silly that they don't make the entire bed out of the
tough fabric." That was a good idea! So, my sis did email KONG and they said that bed is actually made by PetSmart (which was where she got it) so she would need to contact them. They did thank her for the input, though. Apparently, they license their name to PetSmart and don't have full say in the products. That seems a bad idea doesn't it? Anyway, after some surly service from PetSmart, she did manage to get a store credit.
Okay, I know I'm supposed to answer questions on FUF, but I have a question for those of you who have added a "follow me on BlogLovin'" link to your blog. I "claimed" Pooch Smooches on BlogLovin' the other day, and it said to do that by inserting the HTML code at the beginning of a post, which I did with Monday's post (and I apologize if some of you got a superfluous email because of that...). But now that link is just in that post... How do I get it somewhere more permanent? Is there a widget for my sidebar I can use? Hope that's not a dumb question.
For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about - if you read a lot of blogs and want to just get 1 email per day with the links to the new posts, you can organize the blogs you follow at www.bloglovin.com.
Phew. That's it, that's all. Happy Friday, everypawdy!
Thanks to co-hosts Jodi from Heart Like a Dog and AJ from I Still Want More Puppies for hosting Follow-Up Friday!
