Staying on the subject of dog toys

Today I received an email from a reliable dog person about giving your dog a child's stuffed animal, the dog eating the stuffing out of it and getting sick or dying because of certain chemicals used on said stuffing. I researched it and found a posting on Snopes.com. Here is the link, you can make up your own mind.

Note: I have allowed one of my Goldens (Sunny) to pick out his own stuffed child's toy from a giant pile at a garage sale. This was 14 years ago and I had never heard of this before. However, Sunny never ate the stuffing. He just carried it around.


Sometime, its hard to find your way !!

Yeah. We heard that as well. It is really a tragedy...and what goes in to our children's TOYS!!!! I have not destroyed a stuffy, but we do have a few non-doggie ones around... will be careful for sure! :)

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

I think it all goes to watching what your dog plays with. They can easily choke on small parts or the normal cotton can make them sick. Sam has several human bears, and we keep an eye on them to make sure they are in good repair.
