Chew toys

What is your dog's favorite chew toy(other than you)?

My dog loves this piece of double braided 1" dock line with a loop at one end and a large knot(a monkey's fist) at the other end. He's had it for 2 years, and he still can't destroy it.

It used to be a big purple bunny, but over Christmas I bought them a new one and ironically the bunny was destroyed by another dog at the sitter's house.

Now its the new one. It's a big green Octofroggy. At least that's what I call it. It's green and has a face like a frog, but it has 8 arms like an Octopus. The belly has a low pitched squeaker. The head has a high pitched squeaker. Two arms (one on each side) have a really high pitched squeaker at the ends.

Right now it's a squeeky toy. We play the "hide the squeeky under the leg" game. It could last for hours if I had the energy.

Squeeky toys last about 5 minutes with Mac. He'll tear any toy you give him into little bits, and probably swallow it. Twice he's had to have surgery to remove a chew toy(Hartz paid for it once).

My boy is old (15 on the Ides of March). His teeth are still good, but he has a tough time making it through some of the harder raw hides. Publix sells a store brand verity that is thinner than most; takes him about 2 days to completely devourer one.

The kong! Right now it has one of those dog treats designed to stick inside it and stay stuck - she can smell the treat, she even stick her tongue in and lick it, but she goes crazy trying to get it out. She carries it around all day, and will spend hours chewing on it, tossing it around and basically mauling it.

I've had the dog less than 2 weeks (she's a rescue dog), but she has remarkably strong jaws. I noticed on the paperwork that they think she's got some pit bull in her - I'm not surprised.

ASCII picks a different toy to obsess over each day. Sometimes it's the Nylabone Gallileo, others it's the plush hedgehog with a squeaker and a rattle and a grunty noisemaker in it. Often, it's a scrap of a toy that she tore apart 15 minutes after getting it. (It was a bunch of little tennis balls tied together like grapes, with 3 squeaky plush leaves at the top. The tennis balls are long dead, the leaves are still around.)

We got our dog a kong. He loves it! but we try to limit his time with it because we don't want him to be too food focused. Nice treat once in a while though.

BTW, nice looking dog. Are you lucky enough to live close to that amazing trail?

Right now our dog is happiest when he's tearing up paper. Makes it difficult when I'm working on my taxes

Thanks - we live about 10 miles away. It's one of the local regional parks - our part of California has a fair amount of acreage set aside, but it really doesn't get a lot of use. I can take the dog for a quick walk at lunch and feel like I really got away from the office.

Any one have a bone for their dog like this? They are basically indestructible. We have nick-named it "the bomb" for obvious reasons when the dog wants attention and drops it at *on* your feet.

We had one of those for our last dog. She loved it, especially when we stuffed peanut butter in the middle, but we found that it injured her gums a bit. She chewed it into a sharp point. We switched it to one of those plasticy bones. Not as fun but we didn't worry about her teeth and gums.

My dog is addicted to her ball. She gets the soft orange ball hockey balls. She'll fall asleep with it in her mouth.

Otherwise she likes things she can play tug-o-war with. Preferably stuffed, so when they rip she gets double the fun making the living room look like it just snowed. Thank goodness for Value Village - "dog toys" are just too expensive for how long they last.

Howard the Dog is all about rawhide retriever rolls.

He's also got a small soccer ball he likes, but the retriever rolls trump everything else.

Oh, man - the day one of our Golden Retrievers ate every ripe tomato in Mom's garden was not a pleasant one...

At least they were thoughtful enough to leave the green ones to ripen ... for their next visit

Dogs can be weird. Our past dog was easily repelled by citrus. Couldn't stand being near us when we were peeling oranges or grapefruit. Our new pup actually likes the smell and was trying to steal the peelings we left on our coffee table. Go figure.
