Charlie: Toy Destroyer!

Photograph of my Charlie and me taken by my BFF Anne! Thanks!

Sometime between week 5 and week 7 Charlie’s little shark teeth became remarkably determines to chew, chew, chew. One by one his toys became the victim. And one by one I had to remove them from his repertoire to playthings. At first I could amputate the destroyed parts. Then the patient reached the point of no coming back from the destruction. The toy now became dangerous.

First off was ” Kong Elephant”. Unlike his alligator friend, Elephant was called ultra. So the tusks were gone in a couple of minutes. Next, the ears were targeted, and eventually removed.

Now the seams are targeted for elimination. So sorry “ultra” elephant.

Wubba Puppy suffered a tear around the head, and Wubba Bear Friend lost a tentacle. There still was some life left in each toy, but I kept a careful watch for distress.

Well loved in its own way.

Goat lost various parts, but still is holding on. Squeaky Duck lost some stuffing, but still can be used to retrieve. A stuffed unicorn rope thing was thoroughly loved, and marked the end to stuffed toys.

So on to tougher toys. Charlie still enjoys small classic red Kong stuffed with kibble and peanut butter. Recently I purchased a Kong puppy tire made of rubber. This one is stuffable as well. Charlie likes chewing on it.

For my first Mother’s Day, Charlie got me this tee shirt. Well, he is a little young to use a credit card so he told me this is the one to get.

Charlie is quite the “Foodie”. Makes it easier to train. Charlie says, “Will do anything for food, just as long as you make it clear what I need to do!”

I guess that is always the case. It is best to be able to communicate what it is you need honestly and clearly.

Take care. Stay Safe. And wear a MASK!

    Is the “teething “going to slow down- is it just a puppy thing? How do you make sure he doesn’t eat home furnishings, your clothing,etc?
