    Emma loves all her Busy Buddy toys, of course!! :) She really loves any stuffed toy, too – that is, the 30 minutes she spends with them before she destroys them.

      My pups are usually pretty destructive with their doggy toys too. I just make sure and keep a close eye on them when their playing with stuffed toys otherwise they sometimes end up swallowing all the stuffing. I’ll have to try the Busy Buddy toys when I get a new puppy.

      Dublin used to love his Jolly Ball even after Stetson chewed off the handle. Stetson and Linus don’t discriminate…they love all toys!

    When she was a puppy…my parents’ dog liked to chew up all my computer and phone cords. I have teethmarks on those that are still in tact. :)

    How cute. I have a picture of my friend’s Doxie in our toy box too…but he is sleeping. Ha, ha. I don’t think Chester and Gretel have a favorite toy but Gretel is obsessed with Kongs with goodies in them and Chester LOVES everything that squeaks until he tears it apart (which is usually in seconds).

      Most of the Lab puppies we raise are mouthy and destructive. I’ve learned that the stuffed toys don’t cut it and the KONG toys are usually great. I actually forgot what a big time chewer Dublin was and bought him and his partner a supposedly durable Nylabone Rhinobone. She said he destroyed it in about 5 minutes.

      Your pups must be related to Linus! He ate all 3 remote controls in our house as well as 2 cell phones when he was a puppy. Luckily he got over his infatuation with electronics.

    My 65-lb, almost 1 year old Lab, Dorian, has dog toys that fall into 2 categories: unsupervised and supervised.
    He gets only a few unsupervised toys because he destroys most things he can get a tooth-hold on and I don’t need him swallowing things that might end up with a trip to the vets!
    Unsupervised toys: Nylabone Dura Chews, Kongs and Goughnuts stick. These are all great fun for him, can be left around all day without worry and hold up to heavy chewing. Always supervise a toy until you are sure your dog can’t destroy it.
    Supervised toys: Kong Wubba (it squeaks and has a tail), polar fleece braided tugs, various stuffed animals, wood dowels, etc. These are for playing games with me like Find, Retrieve, Mouth Catch, Get it/Hold/Give, and Tug. All the supervised toys go up when we are done playing and game is over. He cannot go off solo and chew/rip on them. That makes them even more fun when I bring them out, and lots safer too!

      I just took a peek at a few pictures of Dorian he’s a beautiful dog!

      Good point on the supervised vs unsupervised dog toys. We do the same thing with our pups. I never tried a Goughnut stick, but I think I’ll get one the next time I bring home a puppy.
