NEWS YOU CAN USE

Kong

It's holiday time, and that means that good food abounds! Here's a special treat you can fix for your dog to spread the holiday feast around to your four-legged family members:

Mix together plain canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) and plain yogurt - stuff inside of a  Kongtop with a crunchy treat that's half in and half out of the Kong, and use immediately or freeze for a longer lasting goodie.
