Since I was a very small puppy, I have had a kong with peanut butter as a bedtime snack. It started out when I was still in my crate and I soon came to believe that was the only place I could have it. The folks never dissuaded me from that idea. When Just Harry came along, he too was hoodwinked into thinking kong+peanut butter+bedtime = crate. So here we are.... Sometimes we bring our kong upstairs with us, but mostly we just enjoy it in the crate. Pee Ess: Kong time is the only time I go into my crate.
