Bender and the Animals
Due to "allergies", Susan and Kevin don't allow their kids to have pets. When Ben comes to visit, he's in heaven with our two dogs and a cat. Lola, our puppy, is like a hairy version of Ben's cousin Matthew. He followed them around, fed them and played with all three animals non-stop.
When he first got there, I gave him a couple of these dog treats to give to Riley and Lola. He quickly asked for another one, which he quickly ate. I offered him some Gummi Bears, to which he instead asked for more dog treats. At one point, he ate one of the cat treats. He didn't like them as much, saying there was something nasty in the middle of it that tasted yucky.
In the end, the animals all seemed to like him, maybe just because he constantly gave them treats. I'm not sure they dug being taken for "walks" around the house, complete with their leash.
I was just impressed that our cat didn't bit him. I think Rascal was too busy loving on Susan.
