New toy!

We bought a puzzle toy for Eva to try out recently. I had to import it from elsewhere because they don't sell these toys her in Malaysia.

We were all very excited when the box arrived!

"Another box for me?? Let's open it!!!"

"HEY!!!!!! Someone help me outta here, please?"

"You know, I think they call this puppy abuse!"

Posing with my new toy...
in the box! ... Wait... now I'm confused. 
Is my toy posing with me in the box? 

Even a smart sheltie like me couldn't figure out the logistics of getting the treat!!

Here is a video for your amusement.

A human's note:

It was to our greatest surprise when we came home after a while to find out that she had indeed managed to solve the puzzle. We still don't know how, but when we get a video of it, you'll be the first to find out!!!!

So the box asks - "How smart is your dog?"
Well....very apparently, not very!

And in answer to this,

Wow that's a Very Tricky Toy how clever you where to work it out. We look forward to seeing how you managed to work it out. From Angus & Milo

This looks like a lot of fun! I haven't seen this toy before - I think I might want to get one for Bernie.

He really likes the 'Twist N Treat' treat dispenser, but this one definitely looks like it would be tougher.

Enjoy! :-D

Katy has more patience with these toys than Bailey. Bailey has that look that Eva got when she stopped and just stared at it.

Eva good job at solving the puzzle.

Wow, that looked hard and I am super impressed at how determined Eva is, my dogs would have walked off but she kept working, she is very determined. I thought it was smart too that Eva did not take for granted where those treats would be...she had to check everywhere!

Amy Wood said...

Eva did a great job with the puzzle. It sure did look like a tough one. Can't wait to see the video on how she does it!

jen said...

What a smart girl she is!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Eva is a smart and beautiful girl!! What a fun and hard toy! I wonder how she finally got the treats out!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

I did not know dogs could do puzzles!
Eva's face in the middle of the video, she is priceless. :-)

Poor Eva! The look of defeat on her face when she couldn't figure it out... She's not used to that!! Glad she finally got it!!

Remington said...

You are VERY smart, my friend!

Amber-Mae said...

That is a furry cool toy, Eva. Me thinks you are not dum dum. You did manage to get all the treats out when your hoomies weren't watching.

Sara said...

Eva, I think you are very smart, and I bet you get lots of treats just by looking cute!

Eva is a very smart girl! We had been wanting to get one of those for Dakota..

I made my own by taking a few little tea cups and I put a treat under one of them...we play find the treat!!

I like yours...her expression was soooo cute!

Ricky the Sheltie said...

LOL - but Eva is smart because she figured out the toy when no one was looking! Maybe she just couldn't handle the pressure of the video camera! :)

houndstooth said...

Eva, it is obvious to me that you simply didn't want to let the humans on to the trick of how to get the treats so they couldn't steal them from you! You waited until they left so you could enjoy all the treats in peace. I think you're VERY smart!


hero said...

You are definitely a smart girl, Eva... coz the toy really looks complicated. Way to go!

Licks, hero

I have thought about getting Chester and Gretel a puzzle toy for mental stimulation. I doubt they "want" it though. They would rather just have the damn treats.

We think you were smart not to walk away and give up, Eva!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Diana said...

LOL, Eva is smart!!! I wonder how long it took her to get those out?

Vonnie said...

LOL! OH Eva your way too funny! Look at that face LOL!

Bailey Be Good! said...

How funny!! My mommy bought this toy for me a few months ago! It pretty much frustrated me, but I was able to figure it out. ;)

Woofs & hugs,
