No Heat and No Costume


Over the weekend, poor Cabana was confined to our house and backyard, just in case she was in silent heat. She performed her share of labby loops through our living room, but we all survived. Thanks in part to the fortunately timed arrival of the new GoughNuts stick!


We already had the GoughNut donut, but the stick is their new rollout, and on the Guide Dogs' approved toy list! These toys have a lifetime guarantee. If the green wears out and you can see red, you send it back to them, and they give you a brand new one.


Yes, it definitely has the look of the obscene, but it's rather ingenious. Your dog can play with the pieces individually, or you can create a "puzzle" that the dog can try to separate. Cabana enjoys being able to demolish her toys, so the puzzle gives her the satisfaction of feeling like she ripped them apart.

Shocking to realize this contraption is $50!! ($25 for the donut, $25 for the stick, plus or minus a few cents.) Still, the lifetime guarantee helps make it worthwhile. It's better than spending $10 on a toy that doesn't last til nightfall.

Onto other news, no, Cabana is NOT in silent heat. We saw the vet at Guide Dogs today, who was very nice and complimented Cabana on her lack of fearfulness. She was her usual outgoing self, trying her darndest to meet every dog in the kennels and vet clinic. The doctor said Cabana was definitely showing some signs of going into season and that it could happen anytime now, maybe even the minute we got home. But for the moment, nope.

Well, I suppose it's my fault, though, because I never made Cabana a Halloween costume. If I had, she would have gone into heat by now, but since I didn't, she'll have nothing to wear to our puppy group Halloween party tomorrow night. Maybe her fairy godpooch needs to show up and whip up an outfit for our little Cinder-Cabana. If no celestial beings visit us this evening, I'm going to have to get busy tomorrow! But a Cinderella dress isn't what I'm envisioning. Suffice it to say, if I can make what I'm thinking, it will be the perfect costume for this wild little girl!

Haha, the toy does have a very...unique...look, but she looks like she was having fun with it! These Bosworth puppies just won't go into season when you expect. I half thought Millie was going into season when I put her on the truck...but who knows.

I am sure you can whip something up for Cabana! Wild girl gets wilder costume!

The toy sure does look cool, I need to buy one of those for my dogs...

Good luck with making a costume for her!

There MUST be a costume for her - she is so PURRty. Yes, the toy does look - uhm - weired but if the dog likes it the dog likes it!

Ha - can't wait to see what her costume is going to be! Cricket may have to add to her goughnut collection.

Lol, Cabana the Cinder-pooch! Hopefully all works well and Cabana gets to be all dressed up for the party tomorrow! =D
