Favorite toy!

With all of the toys, pillows, blankets, shoes and clothes that Ollie has destroyed as a land shark (although he is much better as he gets older) there is miraculously one stuffed toy that has been with him from the start and is still around today...it is his favourite toy and he always carries it around with him, especially first thing in the morning when I go out to see him....here are some pics of him with it

Ollie reminds me a lot like my Bentley. Bentley got a duck with him all times.
Ollie is so cute. You are very lucky

My first dog was Apollo and if she was alive today she would be forty years old. Apollo also had a favorite toy, although I can't remember what it was. Apollo had anywhere from five to ten toys and they were all kept in a large coffee can. Before we put her toys into the coffee can, they were scattered all over the place. When either My grandfather, my grandmother or myself were gone and when we came back home, Apollo would grab one of her toys and carry it all over the house. When we put Apollo's toys in a coffee and left the house and came back home, Apollo got excited as usual and run around the house happily because we came back home. She then went to the coffee can to get one of her toys. Apollo had a favorite toy and would use her paws to try and grab the one she wanted. If neccessary, take every toy out of the coffee until she found the right one.

Cassie had a favorite toy when she was a puppy as well. It was a fluffy hen that I got out of the clearance bin (the girl knows how to shop! ).

I liked it because the squeaker wasn't one of those cheap squeakers. It was one of those deep "honker" type noise makers. She loved honking that hen. It lasted a good four months... which is about 3 months, 29 days and 23 hours longer than any other toy. LOL

She just loved the sound, so instead of chewing and pulling out the bits, she'd just honk it and wave it around...

When it did finally fall apart, I looked for a replacement. Sadly, since it was a clearance item, I couldn't find one.

On our way home from buying Jorgee, we stopped at PetSmart and bought supplies. We bought this Dalmatian snuggle puppy with a beating heart, she loved "Spot" her whole life, if she was playing tug-o-war with Spot and it went creek, she immediately stopped pulling. She would lick her and sleep with her and we would say "Where's Spot" and she would go on the hunt for her. Spot never got hurt because of play she just kinda started falling apart from age, she is almost 12! lol Spot is in the basement because I didn't think about having her cremated with Jorg when she passed.


Before you speak:THINK; T-Is it True? H-Is it Helpful? I-Is it Inspiring? N-Is it Necessary? K-Is it Kind?
