Fatal attraction, doggy style

There's a new KONG in town – or, at least in the Truesdell house. The Extreme KONG.

For tenacious chewers, the KONG company proclaims about the black rubber toy. And after Denali plowed through his second KONG in a year, Mark and I decided that Denali more than likely falls into the "tenacious chewers" category.

But purchasing the KONG wasn't a clear-cut decision. We debated whether to even buy another toy. He just kills them, and he has plenty of other toys in his milk crate available for his "swing my head side-to-side" action.

We realized, though, that Denali doesn't kill the toy – he loves it ... to death. I just hope that their "marriage" is more of a golden oldie than a drive-through Vegas annulment.
