No fun for me with this toy story

I've just caught our silly little dog, Bonnie-Belinda, eating her 'indestructible' Kong toy. I suspected she had strong jaws, and now know she certainly has...I've never seen a dog destroy this kind of toy.

Now I'll have to follow her around every time she  is outside, to inspect for chunks of red rubber. Not a fun job, but someone's gotta do it, right?

My husband will be so glad he's out of  town on business. I just hope I have good news for him when he phones. Not exactly the sort of thing about which one says "It will all come out in the wash"! I'm just glad I got health insurance for her just last week.

PS: the veterinary hospital gave us a special dog food to bring home yesterday and it seems to have worked overnight. What isn't working today is my ability to upload any more photos other than the ones of "Sheldon" and the RCA Victor dog, shown below. Bonnie looks like a mixture of the two.

We don't have the results of her DNA test back yet, but I suspect her lineage to be something along the lines of  'Sheldon' here, and/or the RCA Victor dog:

"Sheldon" as seen recently at

 "His Master's Voice"

Sharing with Our World Tuesday, although it is now Wednesday. Thanks, Fi, for this wonderful meme.

Crikey, yes, it takes some determination to destroy a kong!!! At least its that and not the furniture. Or your ankles... &*> YAM xx

Oh my, perhaps it was a bad batch? Subgrade or some such??

What a dogg! What teeth!

What a dog! Try the super-strength black Kong instead - but only let her have it outside and not chew on it inside.

I hope the vet visit didnt cost you too much!!!!!

Nothing wrong with Bonnie's teeth and digestive system that's for sure!! Hope somebody figures out your picture problem soon -- it's fun to see her possible "ancestors" but we need the real thing ;>)

I bought John's dog Bro one of those large leather chews (about a foot long) for Christmas one year. He "ate" the whole thing by the next morning, and wasn't feeling all the well. Bro is still alive, but having lots of trouble moving around. He still goes everywhere with John, even on quad rides in his box on the back. Those two are inseparable. Last month was Bro's fifteenth birthday. He got his whole cooked roast as a present. Pretty old for a black lab. - Margy
