Victory: Photography Project — 57
Beginning in January 2014, I started a weekly photography project with my muse, Victory! I will continue to share this project on the blog this year! My goal is to document all of Victory’s changes, while preserving fleeting moments and memories, while capturing moments of our everyday.
A few weeks ago, we got Biscuit’s Brick Puzzle out, which he enjoyed using and we decided to give it a try with Victory to see how she liked it. Victory quickly figured it out the Brick Puzzle! She loves solving these puzzles while we are not at home! Actually, she prefers to solve them in our absence — I guess she does not want any eyes on her while she is working! (However, sometimes, while watching television, we will set up a puzzle for her, and she will often go to work on her puzzle as she is food motivated!) We know that she solves the puzzles as the white dog bones are scattered on the floor and the treats are consumed by the time we arrive home! She is very determined! We use Zukes Mini Natural training treats with the puzzles, which Victory works diligently to uncover while completing these puzzles, which are self-rewarding and keep her engaged. So, as a belated Easter gift, we got Victory two more puzzles — the Tornado Puzzle and the Dog Twister Puzzle. Right now, she has already figured out the Tornado Puzzle! Next up, is the Twister Puzzle. We really like the Nina Ottosson puzzles — you can adjust the difficulty of the puzzles, which is nice, especially when a dog is learning a new puzzle; and they are durable and easy to clean.
Below Victory is working on the Tornado Puzzle! (In these images, she just got a bath and she is fluffy clean — and you can see her furs are really coming in under her belly!)
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!
The puzzles sound like a great idea. I have not seen them. Have a great weekend & enjoy the deck.
