Geoffrey in Aberdeen

Just found this gorgeous guy whilst browsing through the local rescue websites, was not expecting a Tamaskan to pop up! Wish I could take him but it's not to be! Presumably from Liz's breeding if he's this far north.

Maya eats whatever's in her Kong in 5 minutes or less. She's more interested in her Kong Wobbler and the kibble in that lasts about half an hour.

Jacinda do you have a Kong wobbler or something similar to make meal times more fun? Maybe Lexi would eat more if she had to work for it? I have a Nina Ottoson pyramid that I could send to you if you want. It's only got a small opening though so the kibble pieces have to be small.
