It’s okay to stuff your turkey, but don’t stuff your dog!!!
MuttPuppet, the unstuffed dog toy, “all started back in 2003 when a husband and wife saved their dog’s life as she was choking on the stuffing from a plush dog toy. After that eye opening experience Michael & Theresa Fraser have been on a mission to create stuffing-free dog toys they call MuttPuppets!”
Thank dog we have never had to save one of the HorN?gang from choking on dog toy stuffing, but there sure are lots of times we’ve come home to see what looked like a fresh snowfall on the floor of the loft. Isn’t it amazing how much batting is crammed into those little dog toys? Then there is the 24-hour wait to find out how much of the stuff Loca ate. One can never be sure until it tries to work it’s way out the only way nature allows. You know it’s true!!!
Yes, Loca is a toy destroyer! Which really pisses Gordi off, because it’s inevitably one of Gordi’s toys she destroys. Her MO: to chew a small hole into the toy, generally around the head, then systematically pull all the guts out, the squeaker, and anything else she can find inside.
That was all until about two weeks ago, when our sample of the Original MuttPuppet arrived. That evening at the loft, we set the MuttPuppet down on the foyer table as we came in. Minutes later, Gordi had it in her mouth and was prancing around as if she’d just won the lottery, which, in effect, she had. Gordi is not one to “steal” things off tables and countertops, so we were a bit surprised. But what we hadn’t realized when we unpacked the MuttPuppet, is that this ingenious toy has a secret compartment on the back prepacked with a small rawhide chew toy. Apparently the smell of that little bone made the MuttPuppet so irresistible, Gordi had to reach up and help herself.
Speaking of irresistible, anything that Gordi is happily and quietly playing with is irresistible to Loca. So she went in for the steal and made the grab, the MuttPuppet’s head came off. Yes, it’s supposed to, but it sure surprised Loca.
In summary, Loca really doesn’t really like the MuttPuppet. She just can’t destroy it. Ironically, Gordi is over the moon for the toy for the same reason!!!
