Squeaker-ectomies

This is one of my very favorite things ever...

Before....




During...


and the Aftermath....









Total time elapsed...15 minutes of sheer bliss!


RIP little squeaky toy...

That's the reason I rarely get any soft toys for my dogs.
They are so obedient, btw.

Ernie, I am so jealous that you get to play with stuffies. I had one once, and it was so much fun! Apparently you're not supposed to eat the stuffing. Did you know that? Now the stuffy is on a high up shelf where I can't reach it no matter how hard I try. I guess I have to show that I won't eat the stuffing before I can play with it again. *sigh*

Hi Grace,
I am a rescue Pittie and would like cool red ball like yours. Can your humans tell me what kind it is or where I can get one?
I'm not allowed to have stuffies either! They sure are fun to take apart.

Thanks!!

Hey Ernie,
You're zooming on the De-Stuff!

To become a pro, you have to work on that composure. You should get at least 10 minutes of squeaking fun. Then when you have all the house driven crazy, knock-out the squeaker. That puts it out of its misery before you -ecto- it.

Uba, I heard stories about folks back-east eating those parts. Think about them as craw-fish. If you need fiber, sweet potatoes are much better (especially fun when you sneak them out of the pantry - but that is another story on my blog).

Check back, Boris

Darn...we don't get to play with stuffies nearly as often as we would like to and I think we've pretty much exhausted the supply of stuffed animals coming from our human boy's room...Shhhhh...don't tell him! (but he was getting too old for them anyway!)

Uba, the fluff'n'stuff and squeakers inside the stuffies are not meant to be eaten...definitely not good eats! Just ask our big sisters (Maxine and Lulu) and of course our pal Boris too. He gives excellant tips on how to enjoy a squeaky-toy to maximize the fun as long as possible.

And as for Gracie's favorite red ball, I believe that is actually a very small Hippity-Hop.

Grace's ball looks like a Jolly Ball. www.sitstay.com/dog/supplies/servlet/product_10001_10001_55810_-1_Jolly+Ball+Tug-n-Toss__20451_

I have one that I keep by my treadmill and play with before I get my harness on and run, run, run.
