What do Bulldogs NOT eat?

Olive...little dainty precious Olive...a BULLYGOAT!  This little brat will tear up her stuffies and swallow the stuffing!  Arrrgghh...thankfully she does throw it up.  The other day she tore the leg off of the stuffed rabbit.  I heard her throwing up in her crate one night and went to see the problem.  It was the toys leg regurgiatated...crap...glad it didnt get stuck.  OH well all stuffed toys have been confiscated much to her dismay.  Sorry Olive..until they make a toy Bully goat proof these are off limits.  PollyAnna never chewed her toys up.  She has always been carefull with hers...Olive on the other hand is MAYHEM.  Does anyone else have this problem?  Is there a Bulldog tough stuffy toy out there that she can enjoy??  Thanks just had to vent.  :-)

Well Hershey Ate his rope, and I found it last night

We 'released the hounds' last night so Gizmo and Hershey could do their business before bedtime. As Hershey is making his way to the 'Pee Patch' of the yard, he is chasing the crickets, it seems that this time of year, they are all over !

*Bounce* missed, *Pounce* Missed.. *Bully Buck* Missed -- Darn got away. . .

So he does his and he is usually quite the over achiever trying to make a nice compact tall pile but last night, it was like - a normal stool, then walking, *Bounce* like come thing is attacking his butt, squat another Normal Stool, and now he is *Bouncing* *bucking* and *scooting* his bum, and when he moves, something is definitely after his butt - and its like he wants to do more of his business, but is afraid too.

Is it the Crickets Revenge?

Ok so I think, he just had a 'dingleberry' or a 'Klingon' hanging off his butt, like he sometimes does, and its bothering him, I go inside for the baby wipes to help the little guy out, and look outside, he is still running, looking over his shoulder, stopping, sitting down, looking over his shoulder, getting up, running, looking over his shoulder, stopping sitting down, looking over his shoulder - He can NOT figure out who is messing with his little butt, but SOMETHING is ! ! !

I get to him, and sure enough there is a DingleBerry, and as I go to help him, its definitely hanging on, so with the wipe, I'm trying to clean him, but this DingleBerry isn't letting loose - ever so gently I pull it, it seems he has swallowed a piece of one of his ropes, slowly, gently 2 inches- Gently slowly. . . a little more of this encased cotton rope, 2 more inches. (Sorry its disgusting...but . . . .

FREAKING OMG ! ! ! ! it was a 8-9 INCH Piece of that Rope, that slowly came out ! ! ! as he was it was actually hitting him in the butt, and 'Chasing him' ! ! ! !

Poor *LUCKY* Fellow ! I dont want to even THINK what might of happened if that became obstructed, but he was eating, playing and like normal

(We had taken the rope away earlier in the weekend when we noticed how he shredded it)

But in the same point, it was so funny to see him being 'chased' by a mystery monster, and the look on his face, like Damn it, SHOW yourself ! (Funny before I realized what could of been a horrible situation)

I just had to share

OMG thanks for the morning laugh...I have tears

I was laughing so hard and the animation is pretty darn funny too.  :)

Those ropes can be dangerous.  MacKenzie liked eating them and he once puked up a huge pile of rope.  Haven't had any rope toys since.

Good question!

If Maude and Gus want to tear something up, it's gone.  For some reason, the only stuffy toys that they have not destroyed are the ones made by the company that makes Beanie Babies.  They have several of them and they are content to chew on them without pulling off arms, legs, tails, etc.  Maybe it's because there's crumbled plastic in the legs and tails that makes cool sounds when they chew them.

Having said that, Maude and Gus still prefer Nylabone chew toys to anything else.

Same problem here!

They do make extra tough stuffed toys (called tuffie toys).  Molly had the shark and got through the triple stitching in about 10 minutes.  She also had the turtle that lasted a while but slowly started losing limbs and had to be tossed out.  She just loves stuffed toys so much that I foolishly waste money knowing it wont last more than a day just because she gets so excited! Oh and if they have a squeaker I think she thinks the point is to find and remove it. But then she's bummed when it is broken! Silly puppy!
