Progress on the Treat Machine

Before you watch the video in this post, you might want to watch the video from my "10th B-Day Pressies" post to see the progression.

So now only 2 days after receiving MY cooooooolest birfday pressie, I have mastered it!!

(mum: I have only been giving Sunshade about 10 mins on the treat machine for the last two days. Can't have her eating too much..... But she does now know that it is the lever that dispenses the treats, not just hitting the machine randomly. Now that she has mastered it, I need to look for other things in placement of the kibbles. She can't eat her regular raw food, and a bunch of kibbles everyday!!)

You're so smart, Sunshade! We knew you'd have that treat machine mastered in no time at all! We enjoyed watching Jaffa play with his sharkie in the background!
Maybe little carrot pieces and corn kernals could work too?

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

I have to have one of those machines. It's brilliant. Can you order them online?

OMG!!!!! I can't believe you are back Miss Sunshade! I missed you so much and would check back on your blog just to see I admit I was a little bit worried but I'm so glad you are back. And there's no way you are 10! You don't look a day over 2, lovely lady!

wally t.

ps. I'm not surprised you figured out the treat machine right away, smartie.

pps. My new brudder is named Oscar Bean, Super Teen (OBST). He's lived with us for a year and a half.

Sunshade...before I say one word about that TREAT the best pressie ever...I just HAFTA ask ya a question...

How in the world did you get those amazing upper arms?

Is it from batting that treat machine??? THAT TOTALLY much better than me going to the gym and liftin' stoopid weights!!!!!

Now on to that treatie machine...where in the world did ya find that???? Hmm...frankly fish kibble doesn't sound too appealing...I'm thinkin' marshmallows, graham crackers and carob chips...SOMEORES!!!

How much did you pay Jaffa to just sit in the background and play with his sharkie??? All three of us would have been attacking the treatie machine...

Gotta go look at your other barkday links and check out Stinky's ya stll call him Stinky???

Oh Sunshade...we're soooooo glad ur back!!!


Dexter said...

Oh Miss Piggy, er, I mean, Miss Sunshade,

You are most clever for sure. But I feel bad for poor Jaffy relegated to his safe zone with his shark (yeah, I saw the look you gave him). I wonder if raw liver would work in that thing? Yummy.


P.S. Thanks for complimenting my bottom. I do try to stay in shape.

Hi Miss Sunshade,
Those machines are cool, Mama has seen those, but she didn't buy one. Sure looks like fun though.
Happy Belated Birfday! Sorry we missed it, Mama has been so sad with losing Angel Snickers last Sunday. Her brain is in a fog. We hope you have lots of fun with your machine.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Angel Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

NO NO NO...I cannot accept the Crown of Flirtatiousness from ya, Miss Sunshade...hardly...I am a mere student of the art, whereas you are the E PIT O ME of flirtyness...(Lacie wonders if Sunshade has ever seen a pic of her nursing uniform with the detachable pink ruffle around the demerits from HER nursing instructors...) NOT compliment Mango on his Relentlessly Hooge Butt...he has an insufferably hooge head already and is completely immune to black and tan flirting...but might wanna try...I've heard Dales do not back down from a challenge....

Stanley is rather shy but he things you're totally HOT...always has...

Scruffy is um well dumb. Only dog I've ever seen who can drink from and pee into his water bowl AT THE SAME TIME...

Can't say more there...

Keep sending flirting instructions....when is your next class going to be held????



Teddy said...

Miss Sunshade,
I'm so glad you're back blogging again!! T-man Angel told me you were one of his first DWB friends. Wow, you had your 10th birthday, that's a real special occasion! I see you celebrated it well.


Molly the Airedale said...

psssssssssssst - guess what Sunshade? A little birdie told us that we're getting one of those treat machines for Christmas! We are so psyched! We hope we can learn how to master it as quickly as you did!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch
