The first order of business was weighing Kyle. He's now 56.3 pounds!
I'd intended to get Kyle two new bones, but after seeing the selection, I caved and bought him three. I'm a softie and a sucker!
(Here's a comparison between the old and new bones. The old bones are half the size of the new ones. Yikes!)
(Kyle eagerly anticipated an okay from me so that he could play with his new toys.)
(Kyle's first grab was a chicken flavored Nylabone just like the one he has in my classroom.)
(Next up was the sterilized bone. These are hands down Kyle's favorite. I've already replaced his sterilized bone multiple times. It's too bad that they are the only messy GDB allowed bone.)
(The new bone was so tasty that Kyle had to lick his lips.)
(Finally Kyle gave the chicken flavored Nylaring a try. This is the first one he's had, and he's still warming up to the shape.)
(When all was said and done, the sterilized bone won out. Kyle's been chewing on it all afternoon.)
(Kyle came off the puppy truck with this bone from his first raisers' home. Before I put it away until I have a baby puppy that can safely play with it, Kyle gave his favorite toy a fond goodbye chew. Notice that the replacement bone is grasped in his other paw. Growing up isn't all bad.)
I always roll my eyes at people who spoil their pets. Now I'm just as bad. Kyle's sure worth it though.
