What a great idea for your puppy during the Dog Days Of Summer (get it?!?!). Fill the Ice Lick with your doggies favorite toys, some chicken or beef broth, water and treats. Then as they lick it, they uncover all the goodies! Don't want to spend $29.95 on the actual Ice Lick? I don't see why you couldn't do this with a bucket, cake or bundt pan. Sure, the Ice Lick includes a pronged metal base that secures it to the lawn, but a girl can improvise, right? LOVE this idea!
