This is Atkins. Despite the fact that he is eight years old, he still believes that he is a puppy. One of his favorite things to do is pull everything he can out of any toy we bring home for him. Squeakers are his prized possessions and he will walk around with them proudly displayed hanging out of his mouth. He is not sorry, either. Rip countless stuffed toys.
Our beagle mix loves to do this too and it just fun for her. But not for me as I’m usually the one to clean it up! LOL Loves the squeakers too but she just breaks them with her teeth.
Handsome boy! And I’m sure those toys deserved to be defluffed!
My standard poodle takes the squeakers out every time so I do surgery when he gets a new toy. I open a seam, remove the squeaker, and sew it up again. The toy gets to live a long life under the dining room table brought out to greet any visitors.
We got some from Costo the dragons and they have plastic in them that crunches but so far squeaker is still in and animal is still intact shock!
Maybe Atkins wants you to change his diet?
Cat Lover with a dog
My Penny is the same – her motto is “Squeakers must die!” Any toy that squeaks gets destroyed in minutes. My house looks like a crime scene after she’s through with her murderous rampage.
Our 11 month old Corgi loves to rip out all the stuffing out of any toy he has. He gets so sad so when he destroys the squeaker.
What kind of dog is he??? I have his twin!!

As far as Canyon is concerned the toy is just wrapping. The present is the squeaker.
