The real non-imitation dogs are the black furry ones with teeth. Just so you know.

    1. They have been tearing their toys to shreds. If they don’t stop, they aren’t going to have any toys and I mean won’t have any like the day after tomorrow. I have never successfully taught any dog ever to treat toys gently. Dogs that are toy rippers — and in this house, that would be Bonnie — they never quit. They rip, rend, tear until there’s nothing left but shreds of fabric. But they need the toys right now. It’s how they play and it’s a lot better than finding my shoes!

  1. If they like tough toys, what about a few pairs of thrift shop sneakers or loafers? Or is that cutting it too fine in the “mine and yours” department?


      1. Sneakers are a really BAD idea. Dogs can’t tell the difference between “their” shoes and yours. But I have to find something they will play with that won’t be trash in under an hour.


    1. I was thinking of putting up sad pictures of our soon-to-be toy-free dogs, begging all of Facebook for toys because their parents are too poor to keep replacing them. Garry said they could be the Nigerian princes and princess of Facebook ragtag doggies. You think?

      1. Oh, yes. You should be getting an email from the prince of Nigeria very soon. Something about a very large cash deposit. Oh, wait. I think he want you to pay him!


  2. Where does Duke stand in the toy-destroying spectrum?? Has he distracted Bonnie much from her day-job as Toy-Wrecker-in-Chief?? 🙂
