Today I want to share with you one of my favorite subjects, TOYS! I love them!! It doesn’t matter what kind of toy, as long as I’m allowed to play with it! I’m not sure why, but mom seems to be particularly interested in what kind of toys I play with and chew. I have had a “few” mishaps with certain kinds of toys. And when I say “mishaps”, what I mean is that some toys just seem to….explode!
So you see, mom likes to find me special toys that don’t “explode” when I play with them. One of my goals in life is to destroy ALL stuffed animals….isn’t the stuffing supposed to come out anyway?? And what about that little plastic squeaky thing?! I just know it’s meant to be found and destroyed! Mom disagrees, but she lets me have my fun until I try to eat the stuffing. She tells me this is why she only buys stuffed animals on clearance…I don’t know what that means, but I like it!
So, because I love to chew things (and don’t worry, it’s only things I’m allowed to chew); mom is always trying to find strong toys that I can chew on without destroying. Believe me, it doesn’t stop me from trying to destroy them, but so far these are the few toys that have not succumbed to destruction, despite my valiant efforts.
My first and favorite bone to chew on is my Planet Dog Orbee-Tuff Bone. I have had this bone for many months, and despite all my efforts, I haven’t made a dent in it. I will keep trying, but mom seems to be fairly happy with my lack of success. I like to chew this bone because it has a minty taste and smell, and it’s rubber so I can chew it without hurting my teeth. Mom won’t give me any hard bones (i.e. Nylabones, Rawhide, Bully Sticks) because they can fracture my teeth….OUCH!!
I also really like my Kong and Kong Bone. I have my Kong Bone in my crate all the time so that I have something to chew on while I am in there – it’s just like my Orbee bone, and doesn’t have a dent in it despite all my hard work! It doesn’t have the minty taste, but it’s just as fun to chew. My red Kong is a lot of fun too. My favorite thing is when mom fills it with something tasty so that I can work to get it out. My favorite Kong stuffing is banana – my favorite food!! It’s also fun when she fills it with treats so that I can roll it around to get them all out.
The newest addition to my collection is this great new Safemade Biggie Bone I got in my first Bark Box! It’s purple (my favorite color), and mom tells me you can freeze or bake treats into it! We haven’t tried that yet, but it’s on our list of things to do in the next week! I haven’t had this bone as long as the others, so I have yet to determine if it will, indeed, be indestructible, but so far I haven’t been able to destroy it!
Finally, my favorite toy of all time, is my Chuckit Ultra Ball! I loved this ball from the moment mom took it from the box! The only reason I am on my second ball is because we lost the first one. I think mom was more upset than I was, but I was very happy to get another one! I tried to take it to bed with me the first night I got it!! It’s the perfect ball – it bounces, it’s waterproof, and it’s strong. Again, mom likes it because, I cannot destroy it, but I will keep trying. It makes an awesome fetch toy, and a great chew toy as well! I can squeeze it in my mouth, and it doesn’t break! I also really like orange tennis balls – don’t ask me why – so this is perfect for me! Mom says I won’t get tennis balls anymore because I destroy them so quickly….I suppose this awesome ball will make up for that, but I know I can make her cave in!
If you guys are looking for some awesome, strong toys; I suggest you check these ones out. They are my favorites, and I think every pup should have some good chew toys! I don’t know about you, but chewing is one of my favorite things to do. These are great, and they keep me entertained. Mom also says they keep from chewing on furniture or things I’m not supposed to (which I would never do!), so she loves them as well!
I’m looking forward to a busy weekend with tomorrow’s Pet Expo. I’ll be posting after that so you guys can check out all the fun I’ll have meeting all those people and animals. I’m hoping I’ll have a chance to change some people’s minds about pit bulls!
I think it’s time for me run off and play now! I hope you all enjoy your Saturday, and do something fun!
Love and licks,
