Monday Mischief: Something Ate Jimmy's Toy!

So we head out into the backyard to start our walk. Everybody gets leashed up and we head to the gate. I look down as I am unlatching it and this is what I see......


Jimmy's Cuz toy with its feet nibbled off! I can't imagine the rubber could have been all that tasty. That's probably why there are so many "crumbs" left lying around.

Here's a close up of the damage (sorry for the less the stellarly focused shot!).....


As you can tell by the weathered appearance of this toy, it's been hanging out in the elements a good long while. I tossed it in the trash and one of Jimmy's indoor Cuzzes replaced it.

I wonder which critter did the dirty deed? I regularly see squirrels and bunnies in the yard, plus mice every now and again. The tooth marks were about right for any of them!

  4. Um... I am so sorry but I believe one of my herding dogs visited your house. I guess they wanted Jimmy's Cuz to look like all of our feetless toys.

  5. who ever chewed the feet off, at least they weren't swallowed. It's always a surprise to see what shows up in poop. LeeAnna at not afraid of color lapaylor.blogspot.com

  7. We too have had a few amputated toys decorate our yard here in Doodleville. And whenever I find one, I never know who did it!

  8. Squirrel.....a stupid squirrel who can't tell the difference between a rubber toy and a nut.

  12. That was a bit rude of whoever ate your toys' feet. The good thing is you had a replacement toy ready and waiting.

  13. Ruh roh - that toy is the one that I leave on our agility course to reward Shyla. I hope ours doesn't get eaten! That looks like the work of a squirrel to me!

  14. That's so funny! My dogs chewed the feet off that very same toy. Must be something about the feet...
