DOGGY STUFFED TOYS
Deflated, Unstuffed Toys
When my dogs were puppies, I used to bring home a new stuffed squeaky toy at least once a week. Jonesy, my male Chihuahua would get so excited that he would run around in circles and barked until I gave in to him and gave him the toy. As soon as he got the new toy, he attacked it with a vengeance and zeroed in on the squeaker. Minutes later, the stuffed squeaky toy was murdered, the stufing was all over the couch, and the squeaker was in Jonesy’s mouth.
This went on for months and months. Every time I brought a squeaky toy home, it was only minutes until the toy was nothing but a flat piece of fluffy cloth. One day I didn’t throw the “cloth” in the trash and left it where it was brutally attacked. I think it stayed in the same position for about a week before I thought about throwing it in the trash. When I picked it up, the dogs ears perked up and they wanted to play with this deflated, fluffy, used to be stuffed squeaky toy. I don’t think I have bought a squeaky toy in about 6 months. The dogs really enjoy playing tug of war with this “cloth”. Their tails wag, they bark, growl, and jump up to get this “thing”. I guess it makes no difference to them if the toy is fat or flat. It sure saves money when you don’t buy a stuffed squeaky toy every week.
