My dog is demolishing his chew toy.

My dog hasn't really been interested in plush toys until I brought home a frog toy less than a month ago. When I brought it home, he started right at it. He seems to like it more than the plush bone that I bought, but eventually I'm sure he'll have a go at that one too. In the time that he's had this frog, he has chewed off both arms, and today he finished off a leg. This frog has been severely amputated!! He pulls the stuffing out and tries to eat it, but I get at it if I'm around so he doesn't. This is a squeak toy, but he hasn't found the squeaky in the belly of it yet. I don't think he even cares about that part of it. I was surprised that he took so much interest in this toy, he's an older dog and tends to sleep a lot, and not care about what's going on around him. You can step over him and he wont even raise his head. The other little dog that we have here can climb over him when he's in her way, but he doesn't even twitch. So for him to take such a keen interest in this toy was quite surprising to me. But at least it keeps him occupied, and that's what my goal was when buying it.

Just make sure the toy is safe and there is nothing toxic. My late cutie had chew toys she loved so much. Towareds the end when she was quite old, she use to get her three most favorite and put them in her bed before she went to sleep. It was so cute

It's all polyester fibre so I think it's ok. But I do make sure that he doesn't eat the stuffing inside.

I'm glad that your old guy finally found something that stir his interest. I suggest you to remove the squeaky from the belly of the frog, because if he find it first, he might swallow it and get hurt. Binne also got a plush bear on her birthday and, as I didn't know it has a singing mechanism, I let her chew the bear. But when she reached for the mechanism, I rushed to remove it, as I was sure she was going to chew it and swallow small parts of it which could have hurt her.
