KONG is King

*Disclaimer: Barking from the Bayou was recently contacted by KONG in regards to their new Jumbler toys.  We received a KONG Jumbler Football at no charge in exchange for an honest review.  There was no monetary compensation and we only agree to review an item that we truly believe in ourselves.

     If you are a regular visitor to Barking from the Bayou, then you are aware that Pierre is a toy-killer.  Our
sweet little granddog wouldn’t hurt a flea, although he might bark it to death.  However, if he gets his teeth
into a new toy, it becomes his life’s mission to destroy it.  For this reason, we have a lot of KONG toys.  They are practically indestructible.  When our friends at KONG contacted us to review their new Jumbler Football or Jumbler ball, I discussed both toys with the boys.  They voted overwhelmingly to put the football to the test.

Bentley: “We are huge football fans; it is kind of an unwritten law in the south.  We love our L.S.U. Tigers and New Orleans Saints.  Pierre and I have collars, bandanas, and even jerseys with our team logos.  Naturally, both of us enjoy a fun game of tackle.”
Pierre: “As soon as Gramma opened the box, I began doing my signature touchdown dance.  She tossed us the ball and it was game time!  I intercepted our Jumbler Football and took off running.  Bentley tried to
"I have the moves like a Pro with my KONG Jumbler Football!"
tackle me, but I did some elusive moves and ran the distance of the field yard for a quick six points.”
Bentley: “I could have taken you to the ground if I’d really been trying.  You were so busy running that you didn’t notice our football had a tennis ball inside of it.”
Pierre: “I noticed it, but I thought it was a baby football.  I was careful not to slam it to the ground after my fantastic touchdown.  I didn’t want to injure an unborn football.”
Bentley: “You thought that we had a pregnant football?!  Bahahaha!  The tennis ball was put inside at
the KONG Company to make it jumble.  You know how some of our Kong toys have secret hiding places for treats?  Well, this one doesn’t have that, because it is for serious players.  I don’t think that I have to remind you that we are a couple of players, do I?”
Pierre: “Whew!  That means I can be as rough as I want to be with this Jumbler Football!  Oh boy, I’m going to bite this toy hard when I run.  You’ll never be able to pry it from me and then claim that you made an interception!”
"I intercepted the football!"
Bentley: “Pierre face it, I can intercept the football from you at a moment’s notice!  I love the way that it squeaks when I bite it.  This has a good solid noise that lets me know I am a fierce competitor.  Don’t give me a toy with a wimpy noise maker; I want a real dog squeaker!”
Pierre: “Do you know what we need to go with our new KONG Jumbler Football?  I’ll give you a hint…it’ll be a girl magnet!”
Bentley: “I’m almost afraid to ask.”
Pierre: “A letterman’s jacket!  We can put on our football letterman’s jacket, tuck the football under our paw, and watch the girl’s drool!”
Bentley: “Hey, you might just have something there!  Girls swoon over macho ball players.  When they see how sturdy and fun our KONG Jumbler is, they may want to play with us!”
Pierre: “Now, you get it!  Of course, we won’t let them actually take our football from us.  It is so much fun; they might run away with our KONG.  I like the girls, but not enough to give up our Jumbler Football.”
Bentley: “I’m with you on that!  Hey, let’s see if the girls want to be our cheerleaders!  All of the big teams
"Ready...set...hut one...hut two!"
have cute cheerleaders on their sidelines!  How about it girls?  Do you want to come cheer us on in our next big game?  If any of you want to play in the game, that’s cool too.  We believe in equal rights and all.  Still, I love cheerleaders!  In the meantime, Pierre and I are going to be practicing our Hail Mary play.  The KONG Jumbler Football can stand up to all of our moves.”
Pierre: “Oohh, cheerleaders!  Yes indeed, now we are talking some serious sideline inspiration.  Come on, grab our KONG Jumbler Football, and let’s practice.  Geez, I love our new toy!”
Bentley: “I knew when I saw it was from KONG that I would love it.  I consider myself the King of Kong.  Wait!  That makes me King KONG!  Hahaha!  Seriously, if the KONG name is on our toy, it is going to be awesome. Let’s give our new KONG Jumbler Football our approval paws.  Remember one means that we don’t like it and five means it’s the best and we love it.”

Five Paws of Awesome!

We are joining our blog buddies Ruckus the Eskie and Love is being owned by a Husky for Thoughtless Thursday’s blog hop.  Enjoy these other thoughtless blogs!


  1. I'd be more likely to wanna play dan be a cheerleader, but I's sure I could bark some encouragement. BOL!

  2. Ooo what a fun toy! Shiner is also a toy killer Pierre. There isn't much that can stand up to her!

  3. King of Kong LOL Bentley you crack us up dude. Bite and shred it we say. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. You guys sure looks to have a lot of fun :-)

  5. We will have to look into Denny is also a master destroyer of toys and kings are the only things he doesn't bother

  6. that looks like a fun toy

  7. My sisters and I can be your cheerleaders and even better, Katie only plays with a real soccer ball and I have no interest in playing with any type of ball. Bailie may be interested but we can hold her down! Looks like a fun toy and I love the color of it, nice and bright!

  8. Wow, that looks like a very good toy to have!

  9. Great fun! Glad the boys enjoyed it!

  10. Oh wow! That is one cool toy!!!!
    Looks like the boys loved it too!!! Woohoo arooooo!
    ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

  11. Thanks for the review. We'll have to look for this one.

  12. It looks great! Specially the color is pawesome! You can discover it immediately in the grass. Have fun!

  13. Oh I like your new blog layout! (Okay, it might not be that 'new' anymore, but I've been MIA.)

    And I agree - in our experience, if it's a Kong brand toy, it's going to last!

  14. Great review! And entertaining as well.

    Your pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  15. Ooh, that's a fun new Kong toy! I'll have to be on the lookout for that. Love the toys that are more durable!

  16. I bet HiJinx would love that! With her jaws she can tear apart a normal toy in moments, and the only toy she hasn't destroyed is her regular Kong toy. This is really cool. Congratulations, Bentley and Pierre! Enjoy your new toy!

  17. I happen to have my own pink football, so I'm not going to be a cheerleader, but I do know that my brother Küster would LOVE that football like a kid loves cake! We'll be watching for those at the store. My family is full of Kong fans!


  18. We have never heard of this particular Kong toy! Riley isn't too interested in toys in general, but if it's stuffed full of treats, that's another story. We'll look for it in stores - thanks for the review!

  19. KONG makes the best toys ever. Just saw this one at our local, independent pet store, looks like a blast!

  20. I wish I'd bought stock in Kong several years ago. We have never had a product that the dogs didn't love. And now they will get a new one that I hadn't known about. We are big football fans, but the last football didn't make it to half time.

  21. My crew loves their KONG Jumbler!

  22. Hi Y'all!

    That's right, keep us in suspense!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  23. HI Y'all!

    Me again, somehow I missed the remainder of the post! BOL! Can't figure things out this morning!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  24. Great review, boys! Our girls won't settle for cheerleading on the sidelines though, they want to be in on the game (and Cricket might even want to take it over)! :)

I'd love to hear from you! Bark back!
