Salvador

My human found Salvador at a curious corner in a bookshop. Of all places.

He was on sale with a huge discount and had a retractable body that came with his ridiculously large goofy head. He’s supposed to make a very good fetch toy.

Unfortunately for him, I prefer to tug at his head.

Poor Salvador, another ploy my human thought she could use to get some peace to eat her takeout dinner.

No one fools the beagle. I’m just gonna sit here and stare.

My Kong collection

My humans always thought that Kong toys are the most durable dog toys in the world. Well, not for a beagle! At least, not all of them.

Over the past 2 years I’ve collected (and destroyed) quite a number of Kong toys.

20140308-080448.jpg
This is my Kong collection 🙂

And my thoughts on which Kong I think is the best…..

No. 10: Puppy teething stick

20140308-081140.jpg
My first kong ever! As you can see, it’s all chewed up and brittle….. my humans stopped giving me this once I grew my big, sharp teeth 😀

No. 9: Braidz

20140308-080549.jpg
My monkey braidz….. It took me a few minutes to sever its arm…..

No. 8: Pet stix

20140308-080636.jpg
Pet stix….. its seams exploded after a few days…..

No. 7: Squiggles

20140308-080817.jpg
My humans only let me play with it for a limited time only each day…. so it took me a couple of weeks to chew off an ear and tear a large hole in its neck. I love this toy because it stretches and squeaks a lot!

No. 6: Air dog

20140308-080726.jpg
Its skin is all chewed up and fuzzy. I love tennis balls, so I love this toy too. 🙂

No. 5: Wubba

20140308-080924.jpg
My wubba…. well, the picture tells a thousand words….. I love the shaking and squeaking and most of all, chewing the tails off…..

No. 4: Wobbler

20140308-081003.jpg
The wobbler….. full of scratches from my teeth and from dragging it all over the floor. I got the treats out easily by pushing it into a corner, holding it with one paw and using the other paw to twist it open. No challenge at all.

No. 3, 2 & 1! Kong extremes

20140308-082720.jpg
By far, these are the most durable Kongs I ever had and the only ones I get to lay my paws and teeth on every day. My humans stuff yummy treats in it and the hard rubber ball is the only ball that I haven’t been able to destroy……yet. I’ve been chewing on the Kong extreme and Extreme Goodie Bone for 2 years and they have only suffered minor scratches.

Best of all, I love my Kong ball. I make my humans play with me until they get so sick of throwing the ball or tugging it from my mouth or having to constantly retrieve it from under the sofa because I would deliberately push it underneath for fun and then bark at them.

20140308-083620.jpg
Play with me!

20140308-083652.jpg
My sister Spring, being all stuck up and refusing to play with me…. 😦

So my verdict: all the kong toys are super fun to play with, but only the extreme rubber toys can withstand a beagle!

I would love very much to get my
paws on a Kong shakers, but unfortunately it’s a new product which might take months to be available here…… and my humans say I’m a spoilt dog with far too many toys! A dog can never have far too many toys!

It’s Friday, I’m in Love

It’s Friday, I’m in Love

He was my first crush. I was all alone in the dark, small room when I came “home” to a foreign place without my brother and sisters. But there he was….in a corner. He stayed there with me throughout my times of loneliness. There were times that my new family had to leave me alone in a strange, foreign place that they call my “new fur-ever home” when they had to go to work, and it made me feel terribly lonely. They weren’t the most experienced dog owners although they do love me. But he…. he was always there with his tender loving eyes. I always felt a flutter of butterflies and a great sense of excitement whenever I see him, because he was my only companion. Being away from my siblings robbed me of the warm necks and furry bodies I used to lay on, but he provided me with the right level of comfort I would ever need to sleep through the night. He had big scary teeth, much like me. And big eyes. But I was never afraid of him. I loved him very, very much that I would take him anywhere, and I would be terribly sad if he was taken away from me. Time passed, and he was never allowed to leave my side because I couldn’t bear being apart from him. He never took a shower because I wouldn’t allow it. I liked the way he smelled, and I never wanted it to change, ever. We had our share of misunderstandings and arguments too. But I always won, because I had sharper teeth. And he never used his big scary teeth on me at all, not even once. I guess he let me win. Sometimes, I got bored and I nibble at him, because that’s just how little puppies play. But he had really delicate skin, and playing sometimes hurt him. I never meant to hurt him, all I wanted was to show him how much he meant to me. I was always faithful to him and I wanted no one else but him alone.

But one day, he was suddenly gone. I woke up, and he was simply gone! I searched everywhere, but I couldn’t find him. Finally, they broke the news to me. They said he’s been suffering from a head injury for weeks and it had been getting more serious each day that he had to be sent to the hospital. I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye. I was so sad, so angry, so lonely.

My first crush, he made me so happy. And now he is gone.

His name was Domo-dog. I will always remember him.

They tried to fill this empty hole with so many others….. but he is special to me…. None can compare…..

There was…..

Eeyore no.1….

20140214-232321.jpg
Fluffy….

Eeyore no.2….

And even….

20140214-232455.jpg
My cousin, Bamboo! But….

No one could ever compare to my first crush, my first love….. the one who had the sharpest teeth that don’t bite….

20140214-231635.jpg
I will always remember him…..

My new Jolly Ball

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, hope I haven’t been forgotten yet. My human had been seriously sick with a throat infection and flu but she is recovering (thanks to me :D).

Yesterday I received a gift from my human’s aunt all the way from the US… it’s a Jolly Ball!! It’s huge and my human can fill it halfway with water to make it more fun with that blobbing sound inside.

20130928-204645.jpg
Me and my awesome new toy!

20130928-204751.jpg
Can I play with it now?

20130928-204826.jpg
Attack!!

I had fun chasing it around, attacking it, and trying to chew it to pieces. Them humans say it’s an indestructible ball, but…. we’ll see 😀

I have been naughty too…. trying to burrow into the sofa covers….

20130928-205219.jpg
What do you think is in here??

20130928-205300.jpg
Ohh it’s just me 😀
