We bought a Jolly Ball for Mia a long time ago, but never let her play with it without supervision since she always pulled the strings out and swallowed them. :doh:

Since I was home, I let her play with it for a while because she also seems to be over the swallowing strings (and papers), and spits them out instead.

Mia has always been a toy destroyer... she doesn't play much with things she can't destroy... So in two days she "killed" the Jolly Ball! Here's her playing with it:














And here are the remains... and her playing with them:










"Mommy, I'm sorry I destroyed another toy... "

Sierra is a stuffie killer, especially if they have squeakers.
This used to be a dragon, until last night...

LOL, I love the 9th photo down. She's playing with the rope and the actual ball is sitting in the background, forgotten. LOL!!

Another Jolly ball rope bites the dust!!! I love the belly up part. She is such a cutie!

When's the new toy coming, Mom?:)

It's the same here! My dogs are equal opportunity destroyers--they tore up the rope from one and chewed off the handle of the other! Luckily, they still like the ball part. However, I do have to take credit for annihilating one of them...I left it in my car for awhile during the summer, and it melted!:eek:

My Pawley destroyed out Jolly Ball here but his was the one with a handle. He chewed the handle and now it is in the trash. Maybe Santa will bring a new one to him. He loves the squek in the toys.

Starting to wonder what am I getting myself into?

Are all goldens like this in regards to chewing and destroying toys and items? I just want to get a good knowledge base on this before we get the puppy. In my naive thinking, I thought if I just look for the calmest looking golden, I'll be all set. Now I'm wondering of the hinden talents of these creatures that are unbeknown to me.

Oh, so reminiscent of my Hudson. He can't get something new without destroying it to utter unrecognizability. There are so many things I want to buy him but I know that 3 seconds later it will be in the garbage can. I will say now he is spitting out stuffing and bits of string instead of swallowing them. I guess it's a start. His Jolly Ball is without the handle and is now just a "ball". No "jolly" in it anymore :( I do love the pictures. The last one just makes me want to kiss her little face and buy her another **** Jolly Ball.

As far as I've read/heard, most of them are like this, yes. Mia is a really good puppy... she only chewed on things she shouldn't a couple of times... she usually only chews on stuff we give her, such as her toys... but that's what they're for. There are no indestructable toys! :p:

LOL - she really made short work of that rope didn't she? That last picture is just precious! Winchester has yet to destroy one of his toys. He just eats the legs and tails off of my sons' little plastic farm animals and dinosaurs.

Great pictures! Yep, goldens the destroyers of toys, but lovers of people. I have yet to find a toy that stands up to mine. Okay, I did find an indestructible ball (bright neon green) where you can put cookies in. Sully is smart enough to know how to get the cookies out. Scotty doesn't have a clue. I guess he got frustrated and hid them because both of them cannot be found.
