It is pretty well known that Mr. B loves his stuffies. Nearly every time we 'suit-up' for a walk, he is grabbing his nearest stuffy ready to go. to Every so often we decide to give in and let him take his favorite stuffy of the moment on the walk. Right now, his favorite stuffy of the moment seems to be this big red bone that our dog walker gave him several Christmases ago. Except for a couple of stitches and missed stuffing, it has held up well over the years.
As with the start of all walks, he will run back and forth around the house with the stuffy and once the leash is on, he will grab the stuffy and sprint out the door.
The reason why we don't let him to take the stuffy on a walk, is that once we get outside, he will lose interest, dump it in the nearest mud puddle, and then it will be either A or me carrying a stuffy on the rest of our walk.
Surprisingly, this walk Mr. B carried his stuffy for almost a 1/4 mile. Then it appeared as if he got bored or his jaw became tired of holding onto such a heavy stuffy or
he just lost track of it.
Though he enjoyed finding his stuffy on his head, he was more excited by pets on the head.
Does anyone else have a pup who carries their own toys on walks?
