This is Phod the week before Christmas. It rained here on the 24th and the 25th and it made the front yard a mess. Most of the snow is gone but little pockets of frozen ice/snow.
We have company dogs until tomorrow. They will have been here a week. While 4 can be a bit of a challenge, all 4 get along super well, so that is great. It just seems one of the girls is always demanding something. We have a puppy rating system. Zaphod is always number 1, followed closely behind by Barley. The girls switch positions 3 and 4 depending on the moment.
I mentioned that Phod can be picky with treats and Andrea asked what does he like. He seems to really dislike fruit and vegetables. He seems to like meat based or all meat treats. We had a package of Wingalings from our November BowserBox and he loved those. He also likes plain old ordinary milk bones (not the healthiest choice, but sometimes you need a little food motivation). He does not like rawhide. He is hit and miss on peanut butter. He has been enjoying his kongs these past few nights but that may be because everyone has a kong. There are very few treats that he likes that he gets that excited about. However, he is compliant enough that he will work for even less preferred treats. (He is the exact opposite of Hailey in this way who loves everything). What he loves the most of everything is fetch. That is his strongest motivation.
