Stuffies Misunderstood!

It’s funny how some stuffies become instant ground cover for me, while others last a long, long time.

This is chicken.

me and my chicken!

me and my chicken!

 

Chicken was a gift from my friends Forrest and Autumn and their mom Leslie.

His squeaker is gone, and he’s past due for a bath, but I love to play with my chicken.

Compare that to the other stuffed chicken sent at the same time. That chicken is no longer with us.

Rest in peace, other chicken.

  1. You’re right Rumpy – some stuffies are keepers and others are lunch (hahaha).

  6. Oh Rumpy …sounds about right to me..although my Forrest has no stuffies left…all other toys are out of reach! lesson learned after my sisters Shepherd had half a tennis ball surgically removed ..nasty op…so it’s out of the way after play for our boys..in fact they hang in a string shopping bag a whole collection i call the yukky dip…dirty slime covered ..just what dogs love πŸ™‚ love the chicken Rumpy he suits you!

  7. The Boxers don’t have any soft toys, they just don’t last the tug o’ war πŸ™‚ Take care of chicken.

  8. That’s sweet. It reminds me of my dog Goody. He is a German shepherd. He takes such great care of his ‘babies’. He even licks them clean.

  13. OTHER Chicken…. Prolly had it Coming… Just sayin.
    THERE IS a major difference between One Stuffie and Others.

    We actually have one that is (I KID YOU NOT) OVER 18 YEARS OLD. It survived the 3 short hairs that came BEFORE US and then survived OUR PUPPY HOOD and it STILL SQUEEKS. TRUE STORY!!!!

  14. You’ve got lots of stuffies to play Rumpy! I’m jealous! πŸ™‚

  15. Oh Rumpy, some stuffed animals are good to keep for sure! Huskybaby is part de-stuffed, but purple bear must remain. Woooowooooo, Ku

  16. we can relate Rumpy…….some comforts just can’t be explained to humans can they? πŸ™‚

  17. Cluck! rip poor chicken..hehe

  18. I am impressed that he is still recognizable. Eko leaves NO evidence when he gets his paws on a squeaker.

  19. I can tell you are a stuffie connoisseur, Rumpy!

  20. we know why that chicken did not cross the road…:) Rumpy you are in fine form!!

  21. Chicken looks strong and healthy. Let’s hope nothing unexpected happens….

    Love and licks and sometimes a dog’s gotta do what a dog’s gotta do,

  22. We like what we like…I still play with some of my very oldest stuffies (ones that have been to Momz stuffie hospital more than once ) and there’s others that just don’t make it

    Posted by Gizmo | May 30, 2013, 4:54 PM
  23. LOL! Funny how some toys last longer than others with no logical explanation whatsoever. πŸ™‚

  24. Chicken love! Molly enjoys pulling all the stuffing out of a red bone…then I stuff it back in and stitch it up…and she finds a tiny hole and pulls it out…and I stuff it back up…repeat….she doesn’t eat the stuffing and waits patiently…but wish she’s just use a kleenex box or something….
    Such a cute chicken…maybe someday

  25. Angel Dakota, Phantom, and Thunder were always pretty good with their stuffies, but then along came Ciara and Lightning – oops, destuffing is now the norm:(

    Nice of you to treat your chicken with such TLC.

    Woos – Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  26. Rumpy, what great timing that Forrest and Autumn gave you a chicken just when your other one went away. Take good care of your chicken.

  27. Poor other chicken, but this one looks like fun too πŸ™‚

    Posted by angelswhisper2011 | May 31, 2013, 2:02 AM
  28. OurGirl’s pup, Laurence, used to disembowel every single stuffie he ever got! Your current chicken is probably very thankful to be such a good friend to you. ❀

  30. Some toys just seem to fall abpart don’t they!

    Posted by Basil | May 31, 2013, 4:24 AM
  31. Same thing happens in our house! I can never pick which fuzzies are going to live long lives and which ones aren’t?

  32. Are you guys originally from Canada?! I’ve only heard Canadians refer to stuffed animals as “stuffies”!

    Posted by Shelli@howsitgoingeh? | May 31, 2013, 10:57 PM
  33. So nice to see a stuffie survive, they never last long in our house and when unstuffed they either end up in tiny pieces or buried in the garden.

  34. I don’t understand Chester and Gretel’s rating criteria either. Chester pretty much tears anything stuffed or with a squeaker up but the Organic Cotton Simply Fido toys last a long time. Maybe because it is stuffed with cotton and feels different? Dunno.
