the best present is always the unexpected...

On Christmas Eve we ran to Target for a few last minute stocking stuffers, and while picking up the small sized items on our list, we ran across a strategically placed toy on one of the end-caps. We have no young children in the family at the moment, the youngest being 22 years old, but we do have 6 dogs amongst the 3 families. My daughter convinced me there was fun to be had with this battery operated pig, and for the $10 cost I said "oookaay". Here is the unwrapped toy nicknamed "PigPig" Well... PigPig did prove to be quite entertaining and well worth the $10. He snorts and grunts and rocks back and forth. We couldn't actually let the dogs play with it because of "federal safety guidelines" and all, it really wasn't dog-safety approved (too many edible small parts I'm sure). But we couldn't help ourselves (sorry PETA) and we did torment the pups a bit for our own entertainment...

No... Westin didn't quite get the pig, although he gave it his best effort and came very close!

He gave up after that and decided it was nap time... or... is he pondering his next attack?

  2. I think he's planning his next attack, because dogs are that way. How funny is that dog? It gave me a great laugh!
