While I cooked dinner I took Rodders, a snuggle fleece, his chew and a couple of toys in to the kitchen with us. He was quite happy chewing in his chew while I cooked and pottered about.
I gave him his dinner at the same time as I sat down and he wolfed down almost all of it before asking to go out. Once he came back in he was happy to play in the conservatory while I finished mine.
I then tipped the crumbs from a bag of treats in to his bowl and that helped him to finish the rest of it.
