My mother always told me not to play with my food.
It's a good thing all of my kids have four legs because not only do I let my kids play with their food, I've actually been encouraging them to do so!
Our friends at Chewy.com sent an Outward Hound Kibble Drop toy over for us to test out and we've been having a blast with it. (note: at the time of this post, the Kibble Drop was currently out of stock at Chewy, so if you click that link and get a "not currently available" message, please try again in a couple of days)
Just like us humans, our dogs get bored. They need playtime, stimulation and to be challenged.

It's no secret that the Lapdogs wait - ready to commence uber drooling - for the nice man in the little white van to drop off their Chewy.com box each month. He must think they are extra special and pretty spoiled... and he's not wrong.
This month we received the delicious treats we're about to share with you, as well as a fun brain-game that we'll be telling you about in a few days, so be sure to stay tuned for that.
While the Lapdogs recover from the Patriots loss yesterday, and uh-hum, Mama gets to work typing up some reviews, we thought today would be a great day to share a few photo updates from our extended foster families.
Besides, there's nothing quite like the smile I get when I see our foster babies living the good life in their forever homes. #ThisIsRescue

First up, is an adorable little man who spent time at the Lapdog house in 2012... Booth!
Boo-man and his sister were watching the Pats game yesterday too...
Although Sophie had shown no real signs of joint issues, it was the perfect time to start her on a quality supplement that would help to maintain her joint function and existing cartilage. After all, having just turned 9 years old, she's certainly reached "little old lady" status - whether she'll admit it or not!
Is it really Thursday already? Are you a Dog Mom (or Dad) who knits? Are we getting more snow this weekend?
Those are just a few of the questions I'm pondering this morning. I'm not sure how we made it to Thursday already, but I also don't really care. A dear friend of mine used to refer to Thursday as "Little Friday," but these days Thursday is my Friday when it comes to the day job. And yes, that makes the Lapdogs very happy.
I'm wondering how many of you can relate to the "u mooovvvv dat from ur lapz so Iz can getz in" look?
Even if you don't knit, I'm sure you can relate. Penny's need to cuddle easily adapts to any pastime... just replace my yarn and needles with your book / tablet / magazine, bead working, needlepoint... maybe even one of those adult coloring books that's all the rage (I've got three that have yet to be cracked open).
Besides the fact that today is Thankful Thursday, and both knitting and cuddly dogs top my list every week, I am hoping to learn more about YOU, my readers, today.
Don't worry if you had no idea. Neither did I until I researched some creative content ideas.
Penny is the first dog I have done organized training with and I have to say, I love it - and so does she! I think it's even safe to say that we're both a little addicted.
Penny graduated from Puppy Class at Petco in August...
We enrolled her for the socialization while we waited for our planned Basic Obedience class to start at another facility. I was a little disappointed that there was only one other puppy in her class, but Penny had a blast... and she showed us all just how much of a smarty-pants she was.
Disclosure: PupCrate sent a December subscription box to Lapdog Creations, free of charge for review purposes. I was not compensated for this review and all opinions expressed are my own.
We were recently asked to review a PupCrate box and jumped at the chance. After all, who doesn't love a box full of surprises landing on their doorstep?
PupCrate is a new monthly subscription box on the market, based out of my home state of Massachusetts (which I did not realize until after we received our box - cool).
Each monthly box is carefully curated with 4-5 high end treats, toys & other pet products. All items sourced from trusted suppliers, and PupCrate promises that each one will be unique from anything they'll send in a later box.
The holidays are officially over and it's time to get back to "adulting" - or at least, that's what my friends' Facebook memes are telling me. I suppose that means I better get some photo shoots in this week for some of the awesome items we've gotten to review for you all... stay tuned!
In the meantime, we finally got snow (it actually happened last Tuesday, but our posts were already set for the holiday week).... which means Penny finally got her first snow!
