OMG! lol that's funny.

I only have this one, from when I was doggy sitting a toy-possessive greyhound mix... She stopped being toy possessive after staying with us.

My doggies have fewer toys now because they just don't play with them much anymore.

Ya Prin you can totally see it on her face, 'touch my toys and die' look going on, I'm sure your kids didn't put up with that hairy eyeball staredown(ws) for very long:D

lol they don't care. They're all "Fine have your toys. I'm going to look out the window anyway."

i don't bother much anymore with NEW toys, unless they are really inexpensive, because this is what happens to them, LOL! and they don't play with toys much anymore... just the squeaky ones and the tennis balls a few minutes here and there. too hot lately to play! :o

well........we used to have toys...a bunch of sponge soccer balls and feathers with balls attached to elastic...but ummm.I don't know where they are....:confused: they're all MIA

and the Kitty Dancer toy(which is Peanut's favorite) has been ruined. She ate all the paper pieces on it.

And I recently bought them a crinkle bag and well....they seem unimpressed. Plastic grocery bags are so much better lol

I wouldn't be able to show you all the toys. I wouldn't be able to collect them all. There are fuzzy balls, ropes, bones & a black kong all over the place.

technodoll, you just have to take a road trip to Ontario, where (some of) the pet stores are huge and have no animals in them...

i'm such a sucker for petstores (minus the pathetic, poor crying prisoner pets). i can literally spend hours in a good one.... me, who hates shopping :rolleyes: !!

I went to a petsmart in Ottawa- HUGE!! There are toys in there I'd never seen (like the alligator I posted in the stuffy thread). Nothing like what we have here. I mean, stores here have kong things, ropes and little dog toys and that's it. There, there was like 3 aisles of toys.:eek:

But your basket is much bigger than mine (I'd say 2.5 - 3 times the size), plus there's three dogs and sometimes a foster. So really, there's only two small baskets per permanent dog, so you clearly win :D. Besides, Cannelle's the only one that kind of chews and it's barely anything so they just accumulate over the years (how can you resist getting "just one"?).

And I thought that the Petsmarts here were huge...I wanna go!!! I hate shopping except for when it comes to pet supply stores, I mean shopping for your dogs is just too fun :D.

No Petsmarts??? :eek: That's horrible, how to Jemma and Boo survive without weekly Petsmart trips (well, it certainly looks like they have plenty of toys, so I guess that's how :D). Do you basically just have little locally owned pet supply stores?

Prin
July 21st, 2006, 11:51 PM
Pretty much. The rest (i.e. the big ones) are full of puppymill dogs :sad: , so we can't go in. (The dogs are the main product usually...)

Unfortunetly we will never have a petsmart in quebec. They refuse to make all their signs french, they say it is not worth the hassle. I spoke to someone a couple years ago asking about it.
Harley has maybe 5 toys in total, all since he was a pup. He never chews them

And Toyota told me about 6 years ago that they would never bring the Yaris here...
If there's money to be made...;)

It's too bad that people will support stores that sell puppies and that there aren't really any alternatives. I'm sure Petsmart would get quite a bit of business there :(.

I bought them three of the fishing pole toys....all of which died within 1/2 hour of them being played with....

I have like 6 catnip mice running around somewhere (somewhere being the key word) and a few others too. Most of them have gone MIA....

*sigh*

bit off topic, but not all major stores have their names changed to French. Advertising expenses have to be pretty bad though as they have to do commercials in both English and french hehe

back on track ... :cool:
petsmart has an online website you can order off of. And eBay has tons of cheap toys for kitties and doggies. And interesting fancy collars.

Our dog Shelby will destroy anything small and furry....toys I mean lol. Anything with a squeaker is dead within minutes....she will actually go out of her way to chew the squeaker out first then shred the rest of the toy. Everytime we see her destroying another one we always tell her "Don't you wreck it....or no more toys!" And what do we do? Buy her more stupid toys.

I found buying cheap stuffed animals at garage sales for like $1.00 is way more effective since she loves the surprise and I don't have to watch my $20.00 investment get mauled within minutes.
And just recently we were in a pet store and found a very large plastic ball that is made for horses to play with...its virtually indestructible and you can fill it with water to make it heavier. Plus its an all year round toy...she loves it more in the snow...and its fun watching her roll it around with her nose.
It was wee bit pricey at $45.00....but still intact and one of her faves. Its so hard to say no to those cute faces.

My girls don't have any stuffed toys...they destroy them within minutes!

We have a bunch of cuzes, bones, rawhides, nylabones, and tennis balls...their favourite game is catch! :)

I LOVE my petfood-supply store,luckily here in Oakville we only have ONE store that sells puppies and kittens and I never set foot in there:evil:
Cats(at least mine), like anything but expensive toys,right now a pair of old leather-sandals of mine are the favorite:D and of course the laser-pointer!
"My"store www.renspets.com has tons of dog-stuffs and I often wonder how you can afford to buy them:confused:
I was going to get a Kong for Bailey,but at $20 I declined and she does not play with any toys,I bought her a squeaky stuffy,but she's not interested,does not know how to play,just eat:D

I haven't had the heart to take a picture of a writhing gopher having its brains shaken out its butthole by Keeper . . . . . or Abby gnawing on a mouse. Seriously, you don't want to see that. I don't even want to see that . . . . I just pick up the corpses when I find them.

But those would be their favourite toys.

They occasionally like a woobie . . . . or maybe not . . . . Keeper with a Christmas present:

Prin,I was looking at Kongs,but at $19+hubby just would not cooperate:D
She's after all not our dog and I already buy her Solid Gold dog-food for treats.
I would also worry about leaving her on her own,chewing anything:eek:
