Party Poopers

Yesterday the four of us went to a birthday party for my friend's 1-year-old Great Dane. This was the first time we transported both dogs in the car together. It was mostly successful, with the exception of the time Mushroom managed to release the seat belt and almost ran charging into the street (luckily, the belt buckle was caught on her harness). After that scare, we made sure to always leash the dogs before opening the door. Between keeping track of two dogs and having frozen hands because we forgot our gloves, I didn't manage to snap any pictures of puppies frolicking. We did see a huge (taller than the Dane!) brindle dog whose owner said it was a Boxer/American Bulldog mix.

My friend even went all out and gave goodie bags to the dogs.

"This is what you do when you don't have kids." - my friend

Here are Badger and Mushroom playing with their new toys:

Om nom nom rope

Shortly after this photo was taken, Badger had already shredded his rope toy, so we swapped in the tennis balls. I had just finished mentioning to Llamaentity how some bloggers' dogs had destroyed tennis balls, and weren't we lucky that Badger had never done anything like that, when we noticed that Badger was oddly quiet (cue ominous music)...

Here is the aftermath:

Guess which toys were Badger's? Also, note the destroyed Kong football

Poor Mushroom. Badger is the reason she can't have nice things.

Has your dog ever destroyed something you didn't even think was destructible?
What are some of your favorite durable dog toys?


  1. I really wish the squeaky rubber ducky we got for Badger had lasted longer, too :'P

  2. Galileo bones are the most indestructible things we have found. Sometimes I just buy rope toys in the dollar bin at walmart since I know they will be destroyed anyway. Might as well not waste a lot of money on it :)
