The Mystery of the Disappearing Toy

One of my favourite treat dispensing toys is the Busy Buddy Twist N' Treat.  It is basically two plastic halves that screw together and hold treats.  There are openings that let treats fall out.

Ours is missing.  Well, half of it is missing.  The last time I saw it, I had put a few liver treats inside to keep Oscar busy.  Now, all we have left is this:

That's right. Oscar somehow managed to unscrew the toy - I have no idea how - and has apparently stashed the other half somewhere. Now that's skill.

It's been weeks, and we can't figure out where it has gone. We have looked under every couch and in every possible place where he could have nudged it into, but alas, it has disappeared. I have lost all hope of finding the other half, so I'll probably end up buying another one. The one we had was small, from when he was a baby, so I'll probably upsize to the medium one so that we could maybe feed him some kibble from it. The nice thing, though, is that he chews the remaining half on its own. I guess he just likes how it feels, even though he's usually not interested in rubber toys. He never used to do that with the whole toy before. Interesting.

Happy blog hopping!

That happened to one of Tibby's food toys too. It was egg shaped with a weighted bottom. The bottom disappeared one day and - 3 months later- I still haven't found it! Although, it might be outside buried in the snow.

Hmm...I never even thought that maybe he had brought it outside. He does like to take things along with him when he runs to the door, but we always catch him before he heads out with them (or so we thought). Maybe we still have hope and will find it in the spring!

And it is quite the clever ploy to get more toys. Tricky little schnauzer! :)
