Miah’s Giveaway #1: Starmark Bob-A-Lot Intelligence Toy

This giveaway item is near and dear to my heart, as it was one of Miah’s all-time favorite toys. Miah was an active and agile girl, and she spent much of her life running after balls and taking long walks with Ivan and me. When she started to lose the use of her back legs due to her illness, I knew I would have to find another means to keep her as active inside the apartment as she once was outside.

After a quick “intelligence toy” search on Amazon, I added the Starmark Bob-A-Lot to my cart and hoped for the best.

That purchase was two years ago, and Miah took to it like a fish to water. Once I realized how happy it made my smart little girl, I ordered a second for Ivan. It took him awhile to figure out how to roll the toy for the treats, but he eventually caught on.

I have to fight back the tears when I tell you all that Miah played with her toy up until the very last day of her life – and as it should be, I buried her with her toy so she would have it always. She couldn’t walk at all, and she could barely lift her head to roll the ball in front of her, but she was desperate to play with her Bob-A-Lot.


The wonderful people at Starmark Academy have donated this toy to offer our readers, and I am positive you’ll be impressed with how happy it makes your pup. It has two adjustable openings that can be set according to difficulty, and you can use any type of treat you want. I use regular dog kibble, and it works beautifully.

This giveaway is open until next FRIDAY, JULY 17th – good luck!!
