Recently I blogged the Treat Triad, a puzzle my dogs love. Another toy that keeps them focused and busy with something other than me is this crazy treat dispensing purple egg, the Busy Buddy Kibble Nibble.
The dogs bat it around and as it rolls, occasionally pieces of dog food roll out. My dog Pretzel plays football with it (American soccer) while Nemo just picks it up and drops it. He has learned that dropping it from higher altitudes allows the toy to accelerate a bit more, and that the additional kinetic transference dispenses extra treats. No, really.
I left the sound on in this video so you can hear that on hardwood floors, the toy is a bit loud. It does have rubber ribbing to keep it from destroying the floors, but I would not suggest filling the Kibble Nibble and then expecting peace and quiet.

Simple maybe, but I didn’t […]
All the filters in the world won’t save your smartphone pics from a shaky hand. To really step up your mobile photography game, you’ll need some kind of mount to hold it steady. You could buy a smartphone attachment for a conventional camera tripod, but who wants to carry that kind of gear everywhere they […]
The forced transition from analog to digital TV signals was probably met with relative indifference from people with Netflix subscriptions and the “I don’t even own a TV” snoots. But anyone living in the vast swaths of the country that don’t have guaranteed high-speed internet, broadcast TV is a perfectly valid (and 100% free) way […]
When Apple revealed the new MacBook in 2016, one of the biggest issues raised with the notebook’s new design (aside from ire over the slew of new adapters you’d inevitably have to buy) was the removal of one of its most beloved proprietary features, the magnetic charging cable. Thankfully, third-party peripheral makers have taken up […]
