Since Quasar has been a Good Boy as of late (really, all the time), we decided this afternoon to give him the Screaming Monkey as a treat.
Quasar immediately went into another frenzy, showing the Monkey who is boss and that he will not be intimated by either screaming...
...or duct tape.
One damn happy dog.
I don't know how much this toy costs, but it is worth every penny regardless of its longevity. Just have your camera ready.
The good news is that we retrieved the recording device, which still works and which we will use whenever we need to get Quasar's serious attention.
