Favorite Toy

Trying to find something to do other than stare at the clock, counting down the days til our newbie (we've actually been referring to him as Noob...let's hope it doesn't stick ) arrives...3 days, 1 hour, and 29 minutes until we pick him up, if anyone was curious hehe. Figured I might post a question that's both for fun and to help.

We want to get a variety of toys for pup to try out so we can find out what he prefers. We have a Kong, a Skinneez toy, a teething chew, and a ball currently. What's your dog's favorite toy? Feel free to tell stories about their love for - or determination to destroy - this particular toy (I have a few about Mario that will come later). Links would be greatly appreciated. Also, any toys that you recommend for puppies specifically that your adult dogs may not use anymore would be great.

Thanks!

Sophie, Mario, and Nino.

Molly's favorite toys are her stuffed squirrels with squeakers in them. I am fortunate that she doesn't rip them apart. She just bites the ears off!

Molly is the toy lover in our house. She has two favorites that she can't live without. We have bought several of these over the past year in case one gets lost.

Small Beaver Dog Toy by Kong - Available on Amazon for $3

Floppy Giraffe Squeak Toy by West Paw Design - Available on Amazon for $9

She hides these toys everywhere and fiercely guards them from Max. Notice she is hiding her face in the sofa after putting the little beaver toy up on top. :-) You can see she even hid the giraffe in my daughter's school backpack and then patiently guarded it. Too funny!

When Molly was a puppy I went to the Goodwill store and bought several baby toys so cheap. She had a lot of fun with them because they had sound to them that she could control and also she could make them move.

When we first got Ruby she really liked the Petstages puppy chew toys that have strings to nibble on. Now all she cares about are bullysticks, himalayan chews, and humping our other dog They grow up so fast.

Cassie has a lot of toys! But her favorites are crinkle toys and things that can be tossed in air. The cow and newspaper are favorites (from Amazon) and make crinkle noises. The green ball came from her breeder and it is very lightweight so she can toss it in the air. She also likes her zebra...the little flip toy on edge is another favorite. She will do squeaker toys but seems to prefer crinkles. She doesn't chew toys too much (other things, but not toys) but I have had to repair a few seams on the green ball.

I've bought lots of toys for Teddy and he rarely had any interest in any....
Until I bought a yellow squeeky duck toy for dogs (USD 1 from ebay/Aliexpress). He loved it so much, he wouldn't sleep for the 1st week unless it was near him and would hold it as he slept just in case somone tried to take it!

On the 1st day when I gave him the duck, he refused to eat because he didn't want to put the duck down. When he got hungry, he would sit near his bowl, whine with the duck in his mouth and try eat without releasing the duck!
we had to take it away at meal time just to get him to eat. it was absolutely hilarious.

We've had that toy for over 6 months and he still loves it. Its not yet damaged even though he chews it daily and we also use it to play fetch and tug. It gets taken away for wash and toy rotation and every time he gets it back, he gets so excited!

He doesn't like playing fetch with humans but he does spends a lot of time throwing the duck around and playing fetch himself....

Finn loves his stuffies...especially ones with squeakers in them. He tosses them around and plays, what looks like, elaborate hunting games with them. Hilarious to watch. I'm lucky that he doesn't destroy them. The only things he destroys are paper products, like tissues, fliers and paper towel or toilet paper rolls. The rolls are like puppy crack to him. He also loves to have balls tossed for him to catch...he doesn't exactly bring them back right away. He chews them a little first then drops them. :P. At home if I pick up one of his balls, he'll take off running down the hallway expecting me to throw it.

Little Rexy's favorite toy is Leo our other Hav. Other than each other they love Skineez, crinkle toys, pizzles, and this little red ball.
