Yes, free the squirrels!! Don't want to mess up his system, that's a good one! That Brody is such a character. I have a toy box, actually a laundry basket used as a toy box, because Benjamin enjoys rooting through it to see what he wants to play with next. I think he gets overwhelmed when they are all out at once, and can't decide what to play with. When he finds something on the bottom he thinks it's a new toy, so it saves me a lot of money on buying new ones. Not that I don't anyway, just would have to buy even more if he didn't keep forgetting about the old ones on the bottom! Ha ha. He actually usually only pulls out a couple at a time, so my place looks like a tornado hit it only some of the time.

I have a toyaholic. Molly loves her toys, that's why we've bought so many. When we're done with playing with one ,or she pulls one out of the box on her own, she automatically puts it back in the box. It's her default habit. She knows close to twenty by name. I know most of you have seen this pic before but for those who Hav not. lol This is only half of them.

Now, I DO believe they are *smart* enough to pick up, but I think they have better things to do with their time, follow us around, shred, hump snuggle bears, etc..

We have some other barbell shaped rubbery toys that he hasn't been able to destroy. But our toy basket is pretty limited right now. And the little sherpa discs, but I have to watch closely with those or he chews them up - but they are one of the favorite toys. Tennis balls is one they love but the fighting gets nasty over those - went way beyond play fighting - so they got put up.
Remember when you bought the sisters the squeaker round toys? Any way I just bought six more and have gone threw at least six since you gave them to us. That is Maddie's favorite toy. Balls cause fights and Zoey chews up things too!. I found a booth at the Portland Dog show yesterday that sells the squeaker and I'm going to try to make some out of leather in hopes Zoey wont chew it up.
I love all the descriptions on everyone"s dog toys. We had a great collection in tell I moved to my sisters. Mine would play with their toys but the two cousins dogies took them and they ended up mowed over by the lawn mower.

Besides, he just fits right in with the rest of my "boys". I've been working on my husband for 33 years and my sons for 20 and 22 years respectively, and they STILL seem to think I'm the "maid service". (I think they just have a MUCH higher tolerance for clutter than I do!!!) So maybe I just gave up with Kodi!

PS I hope poor Molly didn't have to put all those toys away.
yeah she has three toy boxes, one on each floor. Oh yeah she makes sure to put them away, I taught her from day one, and I think she thinks no one can steal them when they are in the box. lol
