Buddy's favorite toy is a snowman doll named frosty and it squeaks! His favorite thing to do inside is to try and get 2 or 3 soft squeaky toys in his mouth and get them all squeaking http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/tongue.gif

Pepper's favorite toy is any of

Rocky is no longer allowed to play with any
soft squeaky toys, since he chewed
up my stuffed bunny rabbit. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/wink.gif

Sheba's favorite toy is her frizbee.

Daisy here. My favorite thing to do? Hmm I got lots. I like to chase all the cats that live around here. I catch them every time too. Okay wanna know a secret? I have never caught one in my life. See, I'm real scared of them so I just pretend to run after them while Mom's lookin' so she'll think I'm big and bad, but then when she looks away I turn around rel fast and hide. I also love to eat and sleep and I do that a lot. I like visitin' my friends, both human, dog, and horse. I like takin' walks with Grandma and her friends and their dogs, or with Mom and her best friend and my boyfriend Moe the Brittany Spaniel. I also LOVE to play chase. I pick up a toy (it's even better if it's a sock or homework or somethin' that's not mine) and then I run around the house 'till someone chases me. That's real fun. I also like to sing with my mom. What's my favorite toy? Oh boy...I got quite a tearjerker story for yas, so grab those white things you hyoomins hold on your noses when you cry. My best non-living friend ever was Pink Bunny. Grandma bought Pink Bunny for me at Petco along with a bunch of toys before they adopted me, and yet when I got here Pink Bunny was the first toy I played with. She was a big pink bunny toy with a squeaker in her tummy. We would have conversations for hours, her squeakin' and me barkin'. I took real good care of her took her everywhere with me. I even carried her to bed at night. Now, I am not a "toys" kinda gal. I am known to shred anything. That's what toys are for, right? Well not Pink Bunny. I didn't shred Pink Bunny, no sir! She was my baby. Life was going good... 'till tragedy struck. Pink Bunny and I were outside playing in Mom's uncle's yard. He was cuttin' the grass with the loud scary chopper thing. I was hiding Pink Bunny under me so she wouldn't get scared, but then I saw a cat! I told Pink Bunny I'd be right back and I went after the cat. I sent him up a tree and then went to check on Pink Bunny. When I got back to where I had left her.... *whimper* sorry this is still a touchy subject for me... the loud grass chopper was gone and Pink Bunny was.... *HOOOOWL!* chopped! The chopper chopped my baby! *HOWL HOWL* Well this was very hard to share but I want all you doggies out there to 'member that you can't leave your toys inna way of the chopper or they'll be chopped up just like the grass. Pink Bunny and I grew up together until she had to go to the Bridge (she's there, right?) at the tender age of 8 months. Now I'm all sad and howly. I gotta go get kisses from my Mom. Seeya later!
Slobbery Kisses,

P.S. This is Daisy's Mom. Poor Daisy is still shook up over the loss of dear Pink Bunny. If anyone ever sees a canvas pink stuffed bunny with a squeaker in the tummy anywhere, please tell us! Anyway, Daisy's new favorite toy is her bone. It's a hollow "cattle leg bone" as it's called, and it was sterilized and stuffed with some stuff that's supposed to be peanut butter flavored (maybe it tastes like it to dogs but I tried some and no WAY is that peanut butter!). She gnaws on that constantly and yet it withstands those teeth. It's the only thing that lasts longer than a week. That, and Pink Bunny http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/frown.gif Moment of silence for Pink Bunny everyone!!! *sniff sniff*

my dog, Cookie's favorite toy is a colorful rope. she carries it EVERYWHERE!! and she is always trying to bite the strings off the rope, and that is always cute to watch http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif

her favorite thing to do is having her tummy rubbed every night before she goes to sleep! she would flip over, having her tummy face the ceiling and wait for you to rub it. if you don't, she will stared into your eyes, just like asking you " why aren't you giving me a tummy rub? " and that always makes me goes over to her and rub her tummy!

Daisy, Bella here.....I am sooo sorry to hear about Pink Bunny. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/frown.gif I dunno if Pink Bunny is at the bridge, but I shure hope so! I have a stuffed yellow alligator that squeaks and I would just die if anything happened to it. I'm only little and when I make it squeak it makes me feel 10 feet tall! I don't know what a loud grass chopper is yet, but I think maybe it is sorta like the sucker thing with the light that my new mommy pushes all over. It really scares me! I'm pretty fearless for a little girl, but that sucker thing sends me scurryin' away!

I really like lookin' inna trash can when the lid is open. My new mommy is afraid that some day she will catch me bein' a nawtee dawg just like you Daisy, and spillin' trash all over the place. She said "I can see it now. You're gonna be just like Daisy." http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif

Hannah here. You should all know by now that there is nothin better than a KONG. I have about three of them but there is always one that is my favorite, even though two are the same size and look the same to Mom. As I am 5 years old, I have had a LOT of toys in my life. Sometimes I have a favorite for a long time and then I get upset about something so I take it out on my favorite toy. ....RIP ITS FACE OFF. Yah, I'm BAD! Mom doesn't understand this, but it's just my personality. I also like to take the squeekers out of my toys. Mom will find something on the floor and she can't figure out what it is. Pretty soon it will dawn on her that it is a squeeker from one of my toys. My giggle ball was my newest favorite thing but I kind of bite into it a bit too much and I think Mom threw it out because I haven't seen it lately. Mom really got upset when I killed "Lamby". I think that was HER favorite of my toys.

Now Tucker's got a duck..Tucker's ducker.. Mom says she's counting how many days it will last. Tucker and I both like to take our toys with us when we go outside. I'm the only one who brings them back in though. If we both take one out, then I have to make two trips bringing them back in. Our fav thing to do, is go with Mom and Dad when they go for a ride in the SUV, but we don't get to do it as much as we want to. Second fav thing is playing outside with Mom. I'll be glad when winter is over and we can get her to resume our daily outdoor playtime.

Daisy here. Hey Bella! Yeah the grass chopper is like the vackoom. Stay away from them things, they scare me too! I hate vackooms and any time Mom pulls it out - which is rare, only when Grandma yells at her to do it a hundred times - I run away. I think she's scared of it too. You take good care of your toys, lil' one! And don't let yer Mom make ya think bein' like me is a bad thing! I'm a great dog. Mom says so, 'cept when i am playin' in trash. I am quite flattered that yer Mom talks 'bout me even if it is negatively. Mom says the trash situation is out of control. Hey if she puts food inna trash, what do ya expect me to do? Let it go to waste? Think of the starving doggies on the streets who would kill for that food. Ya can't waste!

Maybe some of you remember a previous post where we talked about favorite toys. I for one, mentioned and UGH! highly recommended a new toy called the "wiggly-giggly." It was hyped on the Oprah Show last Xmas and was named the number 1 new toy of 1999. I bought one for my lab Star, and she loved it. It is either a ball or bone shape made of really tough rubber/?plastic? and makes the funniest noises when you throw or shake it. It seemed indestructible and chew proof. Well, today I got an alert from a dog web-ring I belong to. Very sadly, the poster of the message tragically lost her dog after he ingested the toxic, zinc coated noise makers inside the ball. There have been other deaths reported as well. The zinc is highly toxic and potentially lethal (within a very short time) should they be ingested. Incredibly, and by God's grace, FOR ONCE my lab Star did not rip a toy apart and attack the insides. If anyone else has this toy, PLEASE throw it away, and pass the word along to other dog owners. I pray no one purchased the toy upon my recommendation, and that no dog became ill because of it. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/frown.gif Incredibly, I even researched this toy to make certain it contained no toxic material! I know Oprah bought it for her Cocker's as well, thinking it was safe.

04-06-2001, 08:09 PM
Oh my, thanks for sharing that. I have one and my dog destroyed it. Luckly she didn't eat the inside rather she just crushed it.
But now I am going to throw it out. I think that the Manafactures should give us our money back for that toy. It was expensive. it cost like $14.99

Thanks again, you could have saved my dog's life!

04-07-2001, 08:52 AM
I can't believe how close to danger we were. Hannah's wiggly giggly was getting some heavy use and I actually found one of the noise makers from it on the floor. There were a number of cuts in the ball where she has bite through it. Of course I threw it away because I didn't want her to ingest any plastic bits and pieces. Last night I bought her a new one. I think I will just put it up and use it for "supervised play".
Thanks for posting this, Logan.

OK everyone ... we're woof'en about something I'm an authority on ... toys! I'm new around here so let me introduce myself. My name is Reba and I'm a Shorthair. Yep, one of those full of energy, crazy German Shorthaired Pointers. By the way, for all those who are wondering ... yes, I do woof a little country-western.
Back to toys ... if it's a soft stuffed doggie toy greater than 6", then I've had it in my mouth. First you must perform what I call a "doggie doctor" operation. You know what I'm talking about ... remove the squeaker from the toy. Now, there are various accepted operating procedures. 1) chew carefully through the eye or nose to access squeaker located in the head area of your toy, 2) chew gently, but firmly through the belly to remove squeaker located in the mid section, or 3) chew off foot and leg for access to squeaker located in lower region of your toy. It is absolutely not accepted procedure to remove both the eye and nose or both legs when removing squeakers in #1 and #3, respectively. FYI, removal of the tail is accepted procedure by some, but not all, doggie medical schools. Also, depending on your time ... the carefully and gently can be eliminated. Woof ... Woof.
Us Shorthairs also have a serious side, and I'm sure many of your young pups out there are like me ... more stuffed toys than we can play with. Want to score a lot of points with your humans. Ask them if they will help you fix (in my case, stitch up the operating holes)and take them down to your local doggie shelter. There are lots of great pups who would really love to play with your extra toys.
I'll be back to visit again. Stop by anytime to visit me. You can always find me at Reba's Homepage. I love to entertain! http://reba.topcities.com/index.htm

04-08-2001, 09:59 AM
Hi Reba! Star the yellow lab here. Welcome! Sounds like you're going to fit RIGHT IN with this screwy but loving group! And thank you for all your sage advice and guidance re: stuffie evisceration technique. Lots of useful tips there! http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif You simply must check out topic "Blue Rhino has passed away" in Dogs General! Same topic from the human perspective. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif I must say you are one beautiful GSP! And your website is very cool. Love your action shots! Hope to hear lots from you! Whenever our humans permit, we love to pound out our own doggie tales here on Pet Talk!

Oh, and Rachel, Sandra here. While I consider it a real compliment to be mistaken for Logan, it really, really was me that posted; I think! LOL!

Carl's favorite toys are his stuffed animals. His favorite stuffed animal was Blue Rhino, who sadly passed away about a week ago. Now his favorite toy is Blue Rhino's 'skin'. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif

Carl's favorite thing to do is eat, after that it's sleep. He also likes to jump, which I find odd - for a Rottweiler at least. http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif

04-09-2001, 05:52 PM
Well Reba, have you and Hannah been chating on the computer when Im not around ? You must have taught her the steps in removing squeakers http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif Is there anything else you have told her that I should watch out for http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/smile.gif But don't worry Im not mad, who could get mad at you http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/wink.gif

Hannah's most favorite toy has now been put to rest http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/frown.gif it was a stuffed cat that was made out of those bags that baking flour use to come in. But after she ripped its head off (a couple of times) there was not much I could do to fix it again.

The cat has now been replaced with a Booda toy, its a hound dog with a squeaker in its tummy, she hasn't taken the squeaker out yet but it has needed surgery to fix his chewed off nose.

Hannahs most favorite thing to do is a tie between going for runs in the feild and playing in the water hole with her friends.

Hi there ilovehounds! Give Hannah a BIG WOOOOOOF from me and she definately has her priorities straight. There is nothing better than running, chasing and smelling topped off by romping in a water hole. What fun is it to go back home clean? http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif

Hi there, First of all i would like to let you all know this is a great forum.....
My WILD CHILD is the best !!! He is an American Cocker Spaniel.... "SCOOTER" His favorite toy is a squeeky Fire hydrant that he carries around...and drops infront of me constantly and then looks up at me and then down at his hydrant.... he wants me go for it, then he grabs it up and runs..... He just loves TAG, and also hide and seek...
Now his absolute favorite thing to do is "GET THE LIGHT" He chases the flashlight all over the house... I can run it across the ceiling and he will run to meet it at the wall.... then he runs to the back door and wants me to shine it all over the back yard.. He will run circles around the yard and back into the house... I think my arms gets tired before he does.... after awhile i lay the flashlight down and he will attack it and carry it around.. only trying to chase the light and can't get it until he drops it..... HE is sooooo silly and I just can't get enough of him......But he sure can poop me out........ :D

07-17-2001, 08:04 AM
Our Buddy loves his "White Dog Friend," a big floppy stuffed white dog with a red ribbon that I picked up on clearance after Valentine's Day. Well, actually, two of the other dogs teamed up to tear the ribbon off. But Buddy, gentle, sweet Buddy, would never hurt his White Dog Friend. He is never rough with it - just carries it around and cuddles with it.
Boo likes squeaky fleece balls, Pup likes everything (but particularly sticks in the yard), and Paula likes anything that squeaks or honks and is fleece.

07-17-2001, 09:59 AM
Lindys favorite toy is her rope, and her favorite thing to do is play with her best friend, Buddy.

07-17-2001, 04:41 PM
No....but my German Shephard Kingston used to chase the flash light dot!!!! Kingston had to be put down in July of 1994...He lived to a ripe old age of 13!!!! Not bad for a German Shephard.....Only had hip problems in his 13th year!! God Bless Him!

My dog Ollie is a Pug. He has a little pig that looks just like him and it goes almost everywhere with him. It also has a little sound thing in it that when he bites down on it it makes a pig sound that sounds like him also, maybe thats why he likes it!!!
His favorite thing to do would be go for a walk when he sees that leash in your hand he is out of control. His favorite place to go is to the park and play in the sand. :eek: :rolleyes: :p

We have a year-old Aussie male whose fave toy is a frisbee, any frisbee. We bought about 10 of them just to have lots on hand for him! Our other dog is a shelter adoption--a 2 year old female mix of, we think, elkhound and red heeler. Her fave thing to do is a little weird: she "works" in the sunny backyard chasing the shadows made by things flying over the grass (birds, butterflies, whatever), and at night she'll chase glints of light. Her job, apparently, is to keep the place free from pesky unwanted light and shadows....
