Wally’s Great Adventures (14)

hello everyone, wally here. mom and i went to the vet today. had a poop test and it was clear of parasites. dad said that was because i keep shatting all over the house. oof. i got some shots which didn’t hurt that much esp since the nice ladies gave me all kinds of treats that i never get at home because of dads tight grip on my diet…he then lifts up his shirt to show me his belly and says this is what treats do, you don’t want that. he says i have to keep in tip top shape, this after mimi told him that a frenchie won a big dog show last weekend. dad said that i’ll be running circles around those other mutts in no time, and no dog of his will come in 2nd place… i’m feeling stress transference already. anyhoo, we’re mixing it up today by posting a vid. dad calls it the 8th wonder of the world. what’s that you might wonder? well dad calls wally eating his dinner something that everyone has to see at least once in their lifetime…and seeing it live is must see tv. mom says that when i’m really hungry and digging in, both of my back feet levitate. oh, i should explain that the food “dish” is called a ‘woof pet snuffle mat’ (yes, its a real thing) which teaches dogs how to forage. but that’s not the reason i have it. when dad was growing up on his farm one of his calves caught ruminal bloat and exploded, as he called it, from eating too much dewey grass too fast. so, dad buries each one of these food pebbles in different areas of the snuffle matt and i forage. he says i have to learn to slow down when i’m eating or i will explode too. he says that he’s never seen anything eat like me, a freak he calls it. I barked at him, you’re a freak dad, that wasn’t nice. anyway, those vet shots made me so tired. nap time. good night everyone. its wally and out.

  1. Lucky Wally! I’ve never seen a snuffle mat. Don’t tell Emma. She’s happy enough with an old sock. Sounds like things are progressing well.

  2. Those shots didn’t tire you out when it came to eating your food! And, Wally, that Frenchie who won such a big prize is not nearly as lovable as you.

  3. Wait until you get a little older Wally and you uncover the delights of human food (even if unintentionally), there will be no snuffling dish that will slow you down enough , though you will always be the most adorable eater around!

  5. Wally, what a hoot…. I never heard of a snuffle mat but I dig the idea. It would have been great to have such a thing for my forever ‘starving’ dachsie. She ate EVERYTHING but loved stealing from human food best! Nowadays she would have to get dog-education classes but she died at the ripe age of 18yrs. I’m happy to see that those shots didn’t harm you; or you wouldn’t have gone like a madman after your food.
    Let’s wait and see about that making you a shooting star; I hope that you won’t be getting stressed out – you are a dog after all and not a competitive hooman being. Good luck!

  6. I think that we, as humans, could use a snuffle mat at times…)

    I haven’t known too this “a snuffle mat”… but seems it could work. I will search for my cats too… But at first, I mean first of all I watched the video and I didn’t understand what you were doing… This was so lovely. Thank you, Wally and Wally’s lovely humans, Love, nia

  15. That snuffle mat is so cute. But not as cute as you eating out of it. Food always tastes better if you have to work for it!
