Every pet is different when it comes to toys. Some dogs love, love, love their toys and drag them around like Linus with his blanket, dropping their slobbery offerings in your lap like a sticky love note.
If the object of their affection has the misfortune to be a stuffed toy, well, the affair may be short lived. Loved to death, shall we say.
Then there are the pets who couldn’t care less about toys. Brody, for one, simply can’t comprehend that.
Seriously, they really can’t be bothered one little bit.
I could have stood there all day and she wouldn’t move an inch.
Those pets rely on other ways to keep entertained. But for those who love the toys, it’s nice to have a few spares in rotation to freshen up their dog day afternoons, accomodate those toys in need of retirement, or just sock away for a special occasion.
To that end, I have a Dog Days Giveaway of some great dog and cat toys provided by PetStages. These are great, thoughtful toys that remind me of nothing so much as the toys I dangled in front of my kids as babies- sturdy, eye-catching, and of varied textures to stimulate multiple senses while they are being played with.
The Dog pack has two sturdy stuffing free squeak toys- I almost kept these for the Brodester- and a soft toss ring that has tags that make soft crinkly noises.
The Cat pack has a set of catnip scented papers, a dental health chew, and a really cute flashing mat that, if I had a toddler still about, would probably be equally enticing to them as it would the cat. I like that the toys are a little more creative than the average stuffed mouse you see in the store; having different toys to rotate is a great way to keep your pet alert and engaged.
