We found the solution to the torn toys Purchase stuffed animals in the children's and baby departments. The stitching is more secure. Holly has two that have lasted over two years. The stuffed toys from the pet store are long gone....they lasted maybe 1/2 day.
wow! Rocky has very little toys compared to Tara. We let him have 4 at a time but we rotate his toys weekly. I was told to do this because puppies will get bored of one toy really quicky and they like playing with new toys or old toys they haven't played with for a while(a week or two in his case).
She only picks the fur off them, but doesn't really destroy them.
I buy kids stuffed animals too but i have to open them up and put squeakers in them cause she don't like them unless they make a noise. :doh:
