Man's Best Friend

A dog's favorite toy, hands down would be a kid. Nothing that Petco offers can even compare with the endless fun that a little boy can bring Man's Best Friend. But sometimes kids aren't available so a toy must be provided to pass the day.

The pet industry is a multimillion dollar business with endless products offered to make our furry friends entertained and comfortable. Our daughter Amy works in a Vets office and tells us when new products come out that we need for our little Cocker Spaniel, Ben. He has a basket full of toys that he likes to run and retrieve, but his hands down favorites are the rawhide chews. Each night while we are watching tv he asks for one and then devours the whole thing with gusto! I would say that Mr. Clown Man may be his favorite toy. We bought it for him before he ever came to our house. It's kind of ratty and lopsided now, but Ben still loves that toy!

I didn't do it!

Pathetic, isn't it?

And when all else fails, the old standby... Thurman's favorite stick

  1. Very clever :-). The Cocker Spaniel gets my vote - hands down. Be sure to tell Ben.

  2. I love the picture of the dog and the boy. They really are man's best friend, aren't they?

  3. I loved every photo, dogs are so wonderful...unlimited love in fur.

  4. Amen I agree. I can see the pictures but nothing else. Have had problems opening your blog for days, I just keep trying, finally got in.
    I left you something at my blog, have a good day!

  5. what a fun post! I especially liked the picture of the little boy and his dog getting a drink. Too cute!

  6. How sweet!
    Mr Clown man....ah...:)

  7. This was really cute. I love dogs. We have a little mutt that is half Llaso Apso and half Shitzu and she is a love.

    I really like the picture of the dog with the green bone across his eyes :D

    All TOO adorable to choose from ... enjoyed the visit with the canines. TTFN ~ Marydon

  9. Thank you for lighting up my afternoon with a smile with these photos! I love to see a dog with his/her toy. So sweet. Just want to hug each and every one of them! Abi has this little sound of woe she makes most every night now because she wants me to find a "certain" toy. I don't think she's even sure which one she wants. Just wants me to get it! Our babies!

  10. This was a fun post. My little critters have way to many toys. You know what they play with most? Daddy's tied up ole sock! Yep, a free toy!!

  11. OH MY GOSH! What a fan post. I love your captions. I even recognized one of the toys that we own - the stuffed squirrel!

    My Charlotte had a blast all day today chasing a fly! A fly, I tell you. Funniest thing I've seen her do in a long time. And it was so nice to see her occupied and not dragging out every single toy she owns!

    Thanks for the delightful post!

  12. All photos are really cool! maybe I prefer the first one.I had a dog but now I have a cat but...I prefer dogs.Ciao ciao.

  13. Our pets sure fill our lives and make it interesting. Some of those pictures were just so funny! Thanks for all your comments...
