Peanut Butter filled Kong toy

If you ever read my Shopping Trip For Alfie post then you would know that I had bought a Kong toy.
I recently found the filler for the Kong toys and went to my local pet store in search of it. Unfortunately they did not sell it which meant I had to find an alternative. I heard that Peanut Butter was an option so I went and found some!

I chose Sun-Pat because it had the least amount of fat out of all the ones in the store. I put a tiny smidge on my finger to test if Alfie liked it and he loved it!

I then put a small amount of peanut butter in the toy and froze it in the freezer making it harder to eat.
Alfie loved it and was desperately trying to get the Peanut Butter out for hours! It made a great chew toy and if there are any owners who are looking for a time consuming chew toy; this is an easy home made one! It was great and I definitely recommend it and will be doing it again!
Here are some pictures of Alfie playing with it:
