Levity Levitation
Toy Joy!  (his tail is the exclamation point)
Shake, Rattle and Snow
A Furry Flurry
Cold Snap….
Assault Shaker…….
BBC commentator: ‘as the cold blanket of snow covers the high prairie, the quiet stillness stretches for miles and……OMG!’

Frenzied Fluff

    All dog / coyote toys run on stuffing. Seriously. Ever notice how they cease to function as toys once the stuffing has been removed? Unfortunately the magical powers of stuffing fade quickly once removed from the toy.

  158. The Dog Lover Says:

    Speaking of toys, can Charlie have stuffed toys? My dog shreds everything that is made of cloth! Also you probably know this, but did you know that deer and elk antlers make awesome chews for dogs? If you find them for free in the wild you should give a piece to Charlie. They are, alas, very expensive, but they are the best chews I have found for my dog yet! They last a long time especially because I limit the time my dog gets to chew hers! Have a good day!
