    Thank you for bringing this up. This is one if those things i think far more people don't think about it than do. the fact you've thought about it shows you're a GREAT bully Momma!!!! I usually rotate so that the toys get washed at least once a week. The rope toys go in the washing machine and the Kong toys go in the dishwasher (unless I stuff it, then it gets washed when she's finished with it.). I try to keep so not all her toys are being washed at the same time.
    It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men that have died (in battle). Rather we should thank God that such men have lived.

    I'll wash Bacon's toys in the washing machine every so often, but not with any regularity. (I don't give him toys stuffed with food - so no issue there). He has so many that it may take days before he gets back to the same toy again. I use the same allergy sensitive detergent that I use for his bedding. I judge it on as as-needed basis based on the way my guy is with health. I'd say what seems logical to you.

    Yes, they say you should wash their toys regularly. I don't, when looks really gross I will throw it in the washer and dryer or dishwasher, depending on if it's fabric or plastic. But I suppose if you have problems with acne and yeast face then it would be a good thing to do. So, NO! YOUR NOT A BAD MAMMA!
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    Maybe run them thru the dishwasher or washer machine? Sad I never think too either. But the ones they use often don't last very long anyhow.

    If they will go in the washing machine ... then in it goes.

    We are without a dishwasher right now, but putting toys in there is a good idea. Right now I'm washing things on an as needed basis by hand I just use hot water and dish soap then make sure I give everything a real good rinse. Within seconds it's covered in slobber, mud from the back yard and bits of fluff ... so not sure why I bother ....
