Dog Versus The Machine

A Large Package has arrived, so we're just waiting on mommy to open it for us.

Put my right paw in. Then put my left paw in. Then bark the magic words!!

We were so impressed with the photos and with what we read on Miss Sunshade's blog about the Yuppy Puppy Food and Treat Machine that we talked Mommy into getting one for us. Well, the box arrived today. In it was the Machine and 4 different packs of training treats too. We were so excited when the box arrived and urged Mommy to let us open it. Well it turns out that Baby Rocket Dog (the smart one) isn't all she's cracked up to be. She didn't have any problem eating the treats I popped out of the machine, but other than eating my hard earned gain, she just laid down next to the machine waiting for me to get it to produce some treats. I figured it out after about15 minutes, but I'm still not tournament ready. I have figured how to press the bone lever enough to get a few goodies, Baby didn't even try to get it to work. Now, my secretary/mom took a sleeping pill so we're hoping this makes sense. Better get to bed.Everything is looking a bit weird.

Love all my big & little buddies!

Welshie hugs, Hootie
I hope you enjoy the video. There was so much trial and error it was exciting when I found the perfect combination to get the machine to work!

That is just the most brillant machine - we love it!

Well done Hootie on getting it working - the video is great!

We've just emailed your Mom - sorry we are a bit behind with our blogs / emails.

Have a lovely weekend
Clive and the NSLM

That looks a great treat giver, but Hootie you did all the brain work. Baby Rocket might be very clever and get to eat the treats before you get to them.

Mango said...

Well that machine sure seems to be making the rounds with the terriers. I hope it doesn't give momma any ideas about stimulating MY intellectuals.

Hootie, that machine looks like awesome fun! I'm not sure about who's smarter though. Baby does have you doing her work for her!


Rocky Creek Scotties and Java said...

We are hoping our Mom doesn't think we need one of these - the sweet look works too well for us and then our Mom opens the treat jar and hands us the treats.

Oh my, I saw that my pals Maggie and Mitch had one of these too....they sure look cool. Those aren't chocolate cocoa puffs are they?? Maybe they are carob. ;) Good job figuring it out.


Maggie and Mitch said...

We love all of the pictures! You look like us waiting for the treats to fly out on their own!
And then we see the video! Great job, Hootie!
We seem to be having brainfarts again with ours!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch

Kari in WeHo said...

Why would she work if she can sit back and take all the treats?

Martha and Bailey said...

How cool is that! And how clever of you to work it out Hootie.
We would probably starve to death....
You guys would have to come and get the treats out for us but we are so patient!

Droopy and Callie said...

What a neat looking toy!!!! We might just have to talk to our humans about that. Callie would probably understand about hitting the lever and then Droopy would eat all the treats.

Sniff ya later,
Droopy and Callie

K9friend said...

Wow, what a cool new gadget! Now that the secret of getting treats has been revealed, some diet issues may come into play!

Twinkietinydog said...

Your momma's comment had my momma in stitches. When your momma said "come on, you can do it, AGAIN," that's when mine started cracking up. Oh, the encouragement we get from our peoples. BOL You guys are lucky to have such a cool toy. Enjoy. I think you'll gradually enjoy it even more!

Finni said...

What a great machine! Clever pup Hootie, tho' it's clever of BRD to let you do the work and cash the treats, hehe.

Lorenza said...

Good job, Hootie!
Kisses and hugs


WOw you got one of those machines too! I love seeing hootie hoot hit the handle. Very can give maggie and mitch lessons-that's for sure.

Baby Rocket-Happy belated barkday! You look smashing in your hat too!

PS mom makes grammar and spelling mistakes all the time and doesn't have ambien as an excuse.

Sunshade said...

Oh my Hootie, you're so smart, and I loved all of the pictures!! You hit that machine the way I did when I first started - yes relentlessly! Mum was happy to see there was a 1 year warranty LOL, but now I'm gentler.

BRD, that's good Airedale brain you're using. Wait for the work to be done for you, and you EAT (I think Mitch is doing that to Maggie)...hehe Well I'm glad you guys seem to be having fun with it, I think we totally need to form a treat machine club or something LOL!

By the way, your house looks BOOOOOTIFUL. You lucky guys with the biggest house in the world!!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade
