Happy Monday everyone! Here’s a question for all of you dog owners out there: does your pup like to play with toys?
When it comes to Lucia, I feel like she’s a bit of an oddball. From an early age, Lucia has not been extremely interested in toys. They actually tend to scare her a bit at times! For some reason, stuffed toys with squeakers (or rubber toys too) that would usually make any other dog go nuts in excitement are completely boring to my Lu. I mean, if I were to give the same toy to Theo, he would immediately attack it, rip out the stuffing, and pull the squeaker out.
Forget about fetching. Lucia will chase a frisbee or ball a few times…but then plops herself down in the yard and refuses to continue. I guess she knows what she likes and doesn’t want to be bothered with other things, perhaps? However, Lucia DOES love to chew on bones – we managed to find her a really thick, real bone that she chews on occasion. But really, only on occasion.
I will say – there is something about a cute stuffed toy that does eventually win her over. Marshalls sent along this adorable pink pig toy for Lucia to play with, and I have been hoping two would become fast friends. Although she won’t be fetching it, squeaking the squeaker, or pulling it apart, the pink pig has actually taken up residence on Lucia’s dog bed, and I do see her picking it up, rolling over on her back, and playing with it between her front paws. She’s a peculiar one, that Lucia.
So I’m curious – do your dogs like to play with toys? What is their favorite?
