Is Your Pet a Killer?

This was one of the fabulous new toys North's "gamma" (read: my mother) mailed him for his sixth birthday. You'll notice how cute this sheep was when he unwrapped it – and how chomped up it is just 10 minutes later with the squeaker successfully removed and killed. While we found durable toys for our tough chewers like Brando and North, I'm curious if your pet loves to rip and desqueaker his toys like ours do?

My living room is constantly littered with furry carcasses :) I buy stuffed animals and baby toys from the thrift store. For 80 cents each I can afford to keep her busy all day, every day.

My girl will destroy everything except for the tiny Fat Cat, Inc. Angry Cats (the ones meant for small dogs). She carries those around like her baby!

My Kuba was killer when he was young. His favourite toy was brush. Sometimes he was destroying garden too but now he is calm:)

Mine are cold blooded killers. I mostly buy Nylabones because there are only a few kinds of squeaky toys they don't immediately destroy.

My poor pup is too old and asthmatic to kill anything... a few shakes and she's winded and has to go lay down for the afternoon.

Storm will only get soft toys without any stuffing. Otherwise she eats it. But I do buy her some sherpa pigs with a squeaker. She kills it quite quickly.

Bexley rips through toys in less then five minutes--we hate wasting money on them, but they make him so happy! But oddly enough, my brother's girlfriend has a small dog (about 4 pounds to Bexley's 80) and whenever she leaves her little toys over Bexley nicely plays with them--like he knows better then to rip them! I don't get it--I wish he would do the same to his toys!

The picture with this story is so funny! I cannot imagine my pup doing anything like this with any toy ever.

Mine used to kill everything, and in seconds! Now she is much more selective.

My girl Mackenzie is hard on toys. So hard in fact that I recycle her toys by stitching them up every now and again. Anyway, this provided me with the inspiration to create the first dog toy graveyard for pics of destroyed toys! Feel free to check it out, www.LickedToys.com. Wags - Chris

My dog is so gentle with her toys, licking them lovingly. They last for years! I'm so lucky. :)

It's like the squeaker killed his brother. He's got a vengeance.

I believe that's an instinct in Boston Terriers. They are first and formost "mousing" dogs.

I could never give my youngest dog (13 months) a toy like the one pictured. He only get tennis balls and Kong balls. Even ropes get destroyed very quickly. They don't last. I spend $25.00+ on two ropes (there are two dogs) and they both get shredded in a matter of days (by the same dog).

Yes, my beagle is not happy until she's found the squeaker in a toy and sees to it that the squeaker will never make that sound again. The toys usually last only a few minutes. The squeaky octopus toys last longer because she has a harder time finding the squeaker when there are so many legs in her way. :-)

Megan likes to make holes in her stuffed toys, and then rip out all the stuffing and throw it around the room. We call it "stuffing explosion." The other dog looks at her like she is crazy...

She has a few 'victims' lying around the house. One of her favorites used to be a cow. The poor thing is ripped wide open, the squeaker is long gone and we threw the stuffing away so that she can't eat it. But she still likes to chew on what is left.

One time I gave a stuffed mouse for our office puppy, Bandit. FYI, he's an American Rat Terrier. He tore up that sucker like there was no tomorrow. In ten minutes, all four feet and two ears were chewed off, the tail was ripped off, and the squeaker was taken out of the tail.

My kitten is! She has a Catnip Doggie and it is her favorite toy and it is just all chewed up with stuffing coming out everywhere! It's pretty funny because I don't see many kitties doing this!

Sadie is not a killer at all. I still have the first toy I bought her the day I adopted her 6 1/2 months ago. That being said, there is a certain type of "hair" on stuffed animals that she will sit there and bite at until she has pulled it all out. Its the little tufts that are usually on the top of the head. She has a giant lion that has the whole mane made out of that stuff. She can entertain herself for hours pulling that mess out. Luckily she hasn't snatched the thing bald...yet!

my aussie pup gutted every toy in the house. one minute it'd be whole, the next limbs and stuffing would be everywhere. and, he'd trot around the house with the sqeaker in his mouth - such a happy boy. instead of throwing out the toys, they go to surgery and i sew them back together. my other two pups are not 'killers' they prefer to play tug and not destroy.

my dog loves water bottles! It's much easier and cheaper for me to keep him entertained now. He rips apart any stuffed toy!

Clyde hasn't, but Bonnie does all the time! We have quite a few ripped up toys around the house thanks to that girl.

Harley loves stuffed things, and just wants to pull out stuffing and squeekers. I swear I buy the toughest dog toys I can find and she still has them de-stuffed in about 20 minutes. The perils of a bully. At least it just toys and not shoes! I can't deny her the weekly toys though, she's just SO happy once she gets the stuffing out. Too cute to resist.
