The little Kong looks about good as new
The Monster Mouth, admittedly, still looks a little grungy. It might need a further soak and scrub. Or I'm going to stop worrying again. Whichever.
The two larger Kongs are also still just slightly grubby. Yeah, it doesn't matter. I'm sure the insides are clean enough.
Part of what precipitated this is that Princess, in the last days of National Novel Writing Month, has been leaving a bowl full of food and in fact begging the nearest food bearing human tirelessly, or leaving a bowl full of food and bringing me puzzle toys to give them to her with peanut butter. The begging I do not reward in any way and in fact, since Saturday, she hasn't had any people food from me. She also won't have any puzzle toys until she's regularly eating food from her bowl again. I created this problem, I know; fun food with peanut butter is distracting to her, giving me time to do Grownup Things like write a novel (51, 374 words. I haven't validated yet, I want to see if I can finish the story). It's also far more fun than food in the bowl, so why should she settle?
I've created a monster.
