I have two dogs, and the smallest one has a favorite toy that she likes to play with, as she loves to make it squeak . She will take it to bed with here sometimes too . The funniest thing though is when I have been gone, that she will go find her toy and start squeaking it. I have to laugh at here, as she is a funny dog, and I love her.

My mini-Schnauzer Ace loves his squeaky toys and will play with them before hiding them in his crate.

That is so funny. I guess he does't want anyone to know where he put them,. Aren't dogs funny though? They do things that we would never expect them to do. Now, if I could only get them to get things for me from the fridge.

@rosekiss The funniest thing is, his crate is a wire crate so he can see out and we can see in. The door is always open so he can go in and out as he pleases. When he's ready to play again, he'll start bringing his toys out and lining them up in front of the couch.

@DWDavis That is cute. It is fun to watch dogs just be themselves. Mine really surprise me at times, as they will do things, that I would never expect them to do. Like the little one will try to climb up my leg when I come back from being gone, as she wants her loving. The other one could care less.

She is. She will start squeaking it thourghout the day too, but not that much. She will wait until I come home, go get it and squeak it. She does make me laugh when she does that.

@rosekiss ...Sometimes it is necessary...otherwise other family members may forget that they need food and attention.

@vandana7 That is true too. Whenever I leave the house, I make sure that they have plenty of food and water, and if they don't, I won't leave until I take care of that. It is important to me that they always have food and water, as they are no different than we are.

I think that dogs are so cute how they play with their squeaky toys. We refer to our son's squeaky toys as her baby. We'll ask her where her baby is and she'll go off looking for it, and bring the animal back in her mouth squeaking it and all happy. She even has a squeaky bone-I bought her that one!

What is so funny but the little one,is that she never liked squeak toys until I got them the toys at Chrtistmas. Ever since she squaks it a lot. I will even play with her, and pick it up and squeak it to see what she does. She tries to get it and when she does, she squeaks it right back at me.

@rosekiss Our son's vet actually stocks a lot of the soft Kong squeaky toys for puppies and dogs. She took our grandpuppy into a special room to let her choose her first toy after her first appointment. And she's loved both the squeaky toy as well as going to the vet ever since! That vet actually allows them to take a new Kong squeaky toy after each appointment-smart vet, the animals love going to see her!

@Juliaacv I like that idea. My vet doesn't do that, but I never expected them to either. It would be nice if they did, but they don't. I don't have to take them to the vet to often anyway, and that is a good thing.

@rosekiss Your dog sounds like a sweetheart! MY first Chihuahua had a rubber duck toy he adored parts of it were missing But I called it Mr Duckie and I would say go get me Mr Duckie he would go to his massive toy box and ge it for me! Doesn't the squeaking wake up your precious dog ? I am getting a cat for the first time!

She loves to squeak her toy a lot, but fortunately, she doesn't squeak it in the midle of the night. She really doesn't need to, as she snores like a steam engine.

It lets her feel comforted I guess. Does she squeak it at night and disturb your sleep?

No, she will squeak it just enough until she gets tired and wants to go to sleep. Thank goodness she doesn't do it at night. I would be taking it away from her if she did.

@jstory07 Not if she is ready to go to sleep it wouldn't. I have taken it form her before to keep the pom from taking it outside, and she never whined for it.She really doesn't whine about things like that, as she is mild. I don't know she is around most of the time.

They certainly do, in their own special way. They know where we are upset with them, they know when we are sad but they still love us anyway, which is better than most people do.

@vandana7 I have always loved petts, especially dogs. When I was married, my husband at the time, diidn't want any dogs. We had cats early in our marriage, and that is becasue we lived on a farm, but once we moved from the farm, we had no pets at all. It wasn't until I divorced that I got dogs. He wouldn't let me have them when we were married, so I made up my mnd I was going to have them when I lived alone. It is ironci though, when he comes to visit, he loves these dogs and will pet them and they will lie down beside him. It really makes no sense why he likes them now, but didnt when we were married. By the way, he doedsn't have any pets where he lives.

Aww, that is to bad too. It wasn't until I got these at Chrismtas time, that she decided she wanted it for herself and once she figured out it squeaked, she does it quite often now. It is to cute when she does it too, as it makes me really chuckle.

@T_gray It does. i never know what they are going to do next. When they know they are going for their walk, they will wait for me to put their haarnesses on and they will wait by the front door to put their leashes on. They love their walks as it is very good for them.

I know what you mean. The one in the picture, will have nothing to do with rubber toys, as she turns her nose up at them, whereas, the pom loves the rubber one, and will carry it around in her mouth, and will take it ouside, and leave it in the yard. She does eventually bring it badk in though. It is just funny, that both dogs are so different.

I used to have a teat ball too, but I don't have it anymore. My pom will take the toys outside and leave them, and I have to go out to get them, as she doesn't bring them back in. She keeps taking Sarah's toy which is in the pricture, and when I see her take it, I make her drop it as I know she will end up taking it outside too, and Sarah is always looking for her toy. My pom is funny, she is.

She sometimes will take it to bed with her, and will squeak it some before she goes to sleep. I am certainly glad that she doesn't squeak it all night though, or why I am trying to sleep.

It is so funny to see her get her toy, and start squeaking it after I come home from being away for awhile. She will squeak it and squeak it, to let me know she can, and she is letting me know she is happy I am back home again. She does go through withdrawal, but it never lasts to long, and I am gllad for that.
