We're Back

Lola and I have disappeared for a while.  Nothing happened, except for summer distracting me.  (And Lola is not happy about it.)  But now we are back!  Since it has been so long, I think the best place to start is the status of some toys.  Destroyed or survived, we all know it is a valid question with Lola.

First is the the ring with the tuff scale of 10, see here.

Surprisingly, this toy has had help well.   I took some advice from Maisie's Mom's comment about trimming up the frayed edges.  This has helped a lot.  I know this toy will one day be destroyed. It is par for the course, but it is holding up well with only a few tears.

Then there was the ball rope.

This has been thrown away.  Lola destroyed the rope and started pulling off lose strings.  At that point she was chewing on them and I was worried she was going to swallow them.  So it went into the trash.

And lastly, the Planet Dog Cosmos Ball.

Lola goes through phases with this ball.  At times she is always playing with it and other times she does not really care.  But it is going to last for a long time.  For whatever reason Lola has no desire to destroy this ball, which is amazing.


  1. Oh Lola,

    We missed you and were actually wondering what happened to you. Good to know that you are still destroying toys :)

  2. glad the trimming worked! it helped that toy survive Maisie, but unfortunately was no match for our Boston terrier friend Mister Peepers. he ripped a huge hole right in the middle and the toy died an early (but honorable) death.


  3. Welcome back. Have a fun day!

  4. We find our pups also have no desire to destroy Planet Dogs toys which we love!


  5. YAY! Hi Lola! We missed you.
