Bad idea

I recently found a Kong squeaky football that Lagniappe disliked and never played with, and yesterday I gave it to Murphy.

Bad idea. Bad, bad idea.

I'd take a picture of him with it but I can't get him to sit still with it long enough to snap a shot.

I also can't get him to stop squeaking it and thrusting it into my face (while squeaking it, of course).

Why is it the things that seem to give dogs so much pleasure and enjoyment are the things that bother us humans so?

Squeak! Squeak! Squeeeeeeel!

Somebody just shoot me.


  1. If you can ever get it away from him, I'll bet a squeakerectomy is soon to follow!

  2. Don't worry, I predict that he will soon chew the squeaker out of it-or at least that's what all of my dogs have done.

  3. Younger daughter's #1 rule for dog toys: no noise makers allowed. None.

    I can just picture Murphy tease-squeaking it in your face and then dasing away with it!

  4. If you can get it away from him, cut out the squeaker. He will probable still like the chewing.

  5. Gunny ends up puncturing the squeaky parts pretty quickly so they don't last long. When they're working, though, I feel your pain. I have to hide the noisy ones when I get up with him in the morning so he doesn't wake the Wife up.

    It's really hard to hide something from a bloodhound, btw :)

  6. Heh, Kong also makes a tennis ball look-alike that squeeks. Its the only ball Apollo will play with, and when the squeaker dies he won't play with it any more. It takes him about two weeks to kill the squeaker, all without tearing the ball apart in the process. Yes, he squeaks them that much....

  7. But we love them for the things that they do...

  8. I can't, I'm laughing too hard... :-)

  9. hahaha!!! You might as well just give in and have fun squeaking that toy! :)

  10. I'm sending him a set of drums for Christmas

  11. Invented by the same folks who created the Fisher Price Corn Popper for kids all those years ago...Squeak!

    Thanks for the laugh

  13. Yeah...my toddlers are just about as bad. And I have family that can't seem to get toys without getting them noisy ones. And then they send them home.

    The next relative that gets our kids a noisy toy gets a kitten or puppy for the next birthday or holiday. One of the hyper breeds.

  14. Ah, no - this is what he needs...
    Full on squeaker madness.

    Our dog LOVED this one - snatching out the squirrels through the holes...but, later, they all met their end. One amputee squirrel remains - the lone survivor...

    So much for her name of "Squirrel Baby Mama".
