So, fast forward to when I got a dog. I refused,from day one, to get any toys that made noise. No high pitched toys, no low pitched toys, no flashy toys. In fact, we didn't even get our old mutt toys-we made them ourselves..and he loved them. Second dog was more energetic and young at heart,so we bought him a few toys. He loved them. He chased, he ran, he played.. all with quiet toys.
One day, I came home to a surprise that my son bought for our dog..Yes, a NOISY toy. I wondered how I would manage. I couldn't break my son's heart and say he couldn't give it to the dog.. I couldn't break my dog's heart and take it away... So , I tried it out. I like it. It is very sweet and high pitched. The dog is obsessed.. He plays with it constantly, like it is his baby. He knows where he left the toy and always looks for it. I bought him a second one recently. He loves them both. He now has begun to bark so we will play with him. He barks CONSTANTLY! It is becoming an issue. I wonder if it will stop???
Do you have squeaky toys for your pets or not?I am not so sure I would have gone this route if I knew what it would become.....
To squeak or not to squeak..that is still the question..
