    Default Interactive toys?

    Since Frank has been recovering from his hospital stay and then a torn ACL on top of that, we have been trying to keep him from playing, jumping, etc. However, it is very difficult and he gets bored and frustrated. Does anyone have suggestions for some more interactive toys that we could get for him to keep him more occupied? Right now he has just a large assortment of various bones to chew. He usually destroys stuffies but if I am playing with him, I can mostly deter that.

    The boys received the squirrel one for their b-day recently. Tate was so scared when I'd pop the squirrel out one of the holes and whenver i said "Mr.Squirrel", Finn would run to the window and start barking! crazy kids. They are cute toys though!

    Once I was at a garage sale and found a wooden puzzle toy for the boys; you can hide treats inside the various slots and the idea is for them to open each slot. They had fun with it and it was quite challenging. Only problem was that they loved chewing it more than playing with it! so i had to toss the thing out.
    Here's what it looks like and it's called Ethical Pet Spot® Sneak A Treat™ Shuffle Bone™ Pet Toy IQ Puzzle-puzzle-jpg
