My dog has balls and when we go to the park he like to chase other dogs balls with them.
Now I have started to throw a mitt and he likes that too.
Thanks for sharing about you dog Raja

A beautiful tribute, brought tears to my eyes. First time I got to really be at the computer in a couple days. Still hard.

Never give your dog a container in which the dog’s head could become lodged.

I remember my dog. Whatever you will give him, he'll play with it until it's totally ruined.

Dogs Toy

My dog love to have Dogs Toy that has a sound. They can give him alertness and energy to play to all.


The first time I gave Zulu, my 4y.o. Rhodesian Ridgeback a plush toy, he took it ever-so-gently in his mouth and put it down. Like it was a living thing! He just wouldn't interact with it at all. He loves squeaky toys but seems to think the plush toy is off-limits for some reason. Give him a rope tug, on the other hand, and he'll show it who's boss!

I just adopted a 2-3 yr old poodle mix - kind of very large mini size. His favorite toy is a large stuffed Snoopy dog which is a child's toy and almost as big as he is. He plays with it like its a real dog -- jumping on it and wrestling with it. My other dog is too small for him to play with so the Snoopy is his pal. I even have found it in bed in the morning with me and my dogs. He loves Snoopy and so far the Snoopy has no fatal wounds!


What a neat study! My dog definitely prefers the soft squeaky toys. She wouldn't play at ALL with the hard indestructible ones. Luckily, she's not a shredder or chewer and just prefers to pounce on it and squeak it over and over ad nauseum until she either gets bored or you come play tug with it (we go through a lot of these toys thanks to her wanting to play tug with easily ripped toys!).
