Crunchies! (is Humans Peoples calls "bottle")

SUMMARY: The best toys are the cheapest and come from the recycling bin.

Note: Another post rescued from the Drafts pile in my Blogger account, started in Sept. 2016.

Oops, actually DID post a nearly identical post in 2016

Thanks to Squink's Human Mom for the summary line and the idea for the post. Dogs love plastic bottles!  Well, mine always have, anyway.

Squink - September 2016  (Photo by Squink. Or maybe his Human.)

My first dog, Amber - 1981

How could I not have photos of Sheba, Remington, or Jake with bottles?? Well, maybe I do in a photo album somewhere.  

Tika - 2011

Boost - 2009 (can't find bottle photo, but still, nice recyclables toy)

Chip 2015

Zorro - 2015

And just happen to have one of a friend's dog--

Future World Champion Dash (TBD) - 2008
(He has been national champion in multiple venues several times and was on the World Team representing the US in 2016.)


  1. Austin is a bit worried about the sound plastic bottles make, interestingly enough. However, he and Flick adore the cardboard tubes left over from TP and paper towel rolls.

    1. LOL! All of my dogs have loved the cardboard tubes, too! And my 6 previous dogs would just play with them and tear them up. My current dogs don't really play with them: They tear them into bit-sized pieces and eat them! Jeez.
