Just like any other Cavachon I have heard about, I LOVE my toys! It is a really special day when I get a new dog toy to play with.
I have a basket that all of my toys are kept in. I have had that same basket ever since I arrived at this home – it was waiting for me with lots of cool dog toys in it! It is decorated with a couple of ribbons tied to the handle – denim ribbons, and they are not tied in a bow! After all, I am a boy, and my mom wanted it to look nice but not frilly! For some reason, I have never chewed on any part of my basket. I guess it is because it is so important to me. I am afraid that if I ruined my basket, my mom might take that away along with all of my toys! I really love picking through the toys until I find just the one I am in the mood to play with. I still have a few of my original toys – or at least parts of them! My first favorite toy was a dog that was bigger than me. Unfortunately, all that is left of my toy dog is one of the ears. I will still find that ear in my basket sometimes and go to sleep with it (I know, awwwww, how cute.)
Let me tell you about the fate of my toys….. if it has a squeaker inside, I am on a mission to get it out! I can rip a toy open, scatter the stuffing all around, and remove that squeaker in no time! My mom will think she has found a dog toy that I cannot destroy, but I soon prove her wrong. She used to take away the toy after I broke into it. She would throw it on a shelf until she had the time to sew it back up. We would call those toys my “misfits” because they were usually missing some body part. I would still love them, and soon rip them open again. I am always so proud of myself when I get inside a toy, but no one gives me the praise I think I deserve! Instead they take the toy away. I just don’t get it.
Lately, my mom has quit repairing my toys like she used to. She will still sew them up sometimes, but doesn’t put all the stuffing back inside anymore. She just throws that away! Some of my toys are empty of the stuffing now. Oh well, I still love them just the same and play with them.
