Here are some of my toys which did not make it into the top 10 (or top however many I wrote about yesterday). These are my 'misfit' toys.
Again, in no particular order:
While it is true that I can not destroy MOST Kongs, they just don't seem to do much for me. I will occasionally chew on the black thing and sometimes we play with the red ball but needless to say, these are usually just somewhere on the floor waiting for someone to come along, trip, and break a hip or an arm. Even when the tall guy puts stuff in the Kong, I usually just get it out and then go on my merry way. And yes, there are some Kongs that I can destroy. Usually if it has a hole it in, it meets a slow but painful piece-by-piece death.
I do like to chew on these, but you might be able to tell, they get sharp pieces on them rather quickly. You can also see where I started tearing apart the green plastic on one of the bones. The tall guy is pretty good about checking to see when they need to be replaced. I don't know why he prefers to use his bare feet late at night to realize they need to be thrown away. He sure does have some funny names for them right before he throws them in the trash!
Oh and I am not allowed to have real bones. Something about the fact that I break them like they were plastic. Even the big ones. I got a knuckle bone once. I had it for almost a minute!! Boy was that fun.
Frisbees are pretty cool. We found the yellow one at the park, so we decided it needed a home. Unfortunately, I stepped on it and broke it, but it still works good. The black one is one of the indestructible ones. Please ignore the parts that are missing. (Although the company was good about replacing it - I've got another one in the laundry room. I like the yellow one better!)
This makes me very sad :( <--- See, there is the very sad face thingy. I love me some Wubba, but I evidently have a 'tendency' to remove the round thing which is supposed to remain INSIDE of the Wubba. As a matter of fact, it is kinda like a tennis ball! Fortunately, this Wubba was given to me as a present and the person who gave it to me told me it was ok if I de-balled it. The tall guy does not buy me no Wubbas no more.
• The round doughnut-like thing
Yuck. This is nasty. That's all I got to say about that.
Speaking of Mr. Duck #3. Here is what happened to Mr. Duck #1 and #2:
'As you can plainly see, their heads have a tendency to explode. Usually while they are in my mouth. But, since I only get to play with this with the tall guy, they tend to last longer than most of my other toys. I think I'm beginning to notice a pattern there!
Toys I am not even allowed to have no more (or have never been allowed to have):
Absolutely #1 - RAWHIDE. The tall guy said he had more than enough gagging and digging pieces of slimy rawhide out of the mouths of his other dogs to continue along that path. I know what they are because I've seen them at the pet store. But I've never had any.
#2 - Tennis balls. See yesterday's post. If you ever find the prize inside, please let me know what it was.
#3 - Almost any toy with a hole in it. Because if there is a one hole in it, there needs to be more. And holes lead to pieces. And pieces lead to...
... #4 - Any of the toys that are out in the box in the garage. Or any of the pieces of the toys that are out in the box in the garage. Or any of the stuffing that was in any of the pieces of any of the toys out in the box in the garage.
#5 - Magazines. Not my idea - the tall guy said to make sure I added this.
And one more thing we are leaning toward never having any more:
Anything with stuffing in it. Including my dog bed. Which I am constantly reminded is made for laying down on and is NOT A SEX TOY. No sirreebob!! (I think mine is in doggy bed therapy.)

And now for the important stuff:
Each year, more than 4 million dogs end up in shelters and breed rescue organizations. Pedigree created The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive to help shine a spotlight on the plight of these homeless dogs.
This year the PEDIGREE Adoption Drive is raising awareness for homeless dogs by donating a bowl of food to shelter dogs for everyone who becomes a “Fan” or “Likes” The PEDIGREE Adoption Drive on Facebook. So far more than 1 million bowls have been donated.
Thursday, September 16 through Sunday, September 19, the Pedigree BlogPaws bloggers will host a Blog Hop, to help raise awareness for the “Write a post, help a dog” effort. Make sure to head on over to a Pedigree BlogPaws Blogger (Life With Dogs) who is hosting the Blog Hop to add your link.
