Let's Talk Toys

Hello my fellow furry friends!

Let's chat about toys.  I have only been prancing around on this thing they call planet earth for about 13 1/2 weeks now.  In that short amount of time, I have already discovered that I like to chew, chase and toss certain things about.  Mommy and daddy refer to them as my toys.  In fact, the phrase in which I hear that word the most is, "No Maude..No!  Chew on this instead.  It's your toy."  Ok...still not sure what all that means, but these things called toys are pretty fun.  I have a bunch and they seem to be scattered all over this big ole house.  

I say all of that to say...I find myself being drawn to 3 toys in particular.  I run upstairs to this area that they are trying to keep me in for "playtime" and I usually run first for this one.


It should be obvious by the picture that I tend to give this toy the business.  Cool thing is that mommy and daddy even toss up across the room and allow me to pounce on it as if it is a neighborhood cat.  No offense to anyone who might be a cat.  But again...I have this weird desire to chase or bark at one.  No idea where that is coming from.  Nevertheless, I digress.  This hairy ball is for sure a fav of mine.

The next one I usually try to pounce on is this one.


My aunt Kelli and cousin Buster got this one for me.  I have tried and tried to get to it's insides (I know that makes me look like a meanie, but come on, its a toy).  It is a tough little piggy.  So usually I resort to chomping and chewing on its tail.  Do you notice that there is not much of a tail left. Teehee!

And the third one that has become my "downstairs toy" is this one.


My new friend Jenn brought this to me.  She is a very nice friend of mommy and daddy's.  At first I thought...yay a pink one!  Then I thought...what is it and what I am supposed to do with it?  Mommy waisted a lot of peanut butter trying to get me to play with it, but honestly, she was just wasting my daddy's favorite lunch condiment.  It is rubbery and...BOUNCY!  I can pick it up and toss it all by myself and then go chase it all by myself.  I treat it like a small varmint and sneak up on it and then POUNCE!!  Can you tell that I like to pounce??

Well...those are my fav toys so far.  Just wanted to share that with you.  What are some of yours?  Maybe I can get mommy and daddy to go out and spend some more money and buy me one or two...or three or four. :)

Oh...and here is a picture I took after I convinced daddy to let me up on the bed.  Then the goofball photo bombed me.  I will be more careful the next time.

    1. Hello Lilly! My daddy types most of the time for me too. :) Ok...all of the time. But I am hoping to take some obedience classes soon and maybe how to type is included. Nice to meet you too and double woof woof right back at you.

  5. Hello Maude - this is Harley and CoCo (we are dictating for our mom Jen) and we can't wait to meet you someday. We are so happy you like the pink kong! Our mom and dad also wasted a lot of peanut butter on ours - but we, too, just like to see it bounce and then we POUNCE! Especially if we take it up on the couch or the bed and then drop it off the edge...it goes all over!!!
