    Hope all is well with him today. Hopefully the toys will help him feel better & forget about it for a little.

    Hey guys… Wally is doing great this morning, his limp is almost completely gone!!! In fact he was chewing on the stone fireplace this morning, so I know he's feeling much better I'm going to keep a closer eye on him today, he seems to have trouble navigating the wood floors for some reason. His paws are so dang big, he needs to grow into those bad boys… LOL I may have to get some scatter rugs so when he tears thru the house he won't slide… of course I'm sure he will pee on a few. Ugh...

    I'm so glad his leg is feeling better.

I would be very leery and scared of giving him the soft toys, and the balls look small, I would stick with a ball that's bigger than his mouth, and ones that are hard like a Kong ball. They can chew these things so quickly and swallow them, my guys can only have Kong toys, and nothing smaller than their mouth, and no stuffies. I am maybe a little scared and paranoid about obstruction and choking on small toys.
    Monica I agree w/the balls… I told Lily that I thought they were too small for him, so I will probably put those away. I had bought him a variety of different toys when he got here… he seems to prefer the nylabones and soft toys right now. He sucks on them, and hasn't torn them as of yet. He is supervised at ALL times w/his toys, but I'm glad that you brought this to my attention. So far I have yet to have a bully that eats their toys… BUT my boxer likes to rip stuffies open. She won't eat anything, just likes to destroy them and then of course I worry that the bullies might eat the stuffing. Walter doesn't seem to care for the Kong stuff yet, but I'm sure as he gets bigger he will

    Hi Tracey, I'm just a big worry wart, when it comes to these things. My guys eat everything, and can't be left alone with any toys, we have to baby proof the whole house for the dogs, they eat socks, clothes, towels, pillows, stuffies, dish cloths, Dozer grabbed the cloth while we were bathing him, it was on the side of the tub, he was that fast. Outside they eat old gum, rocks, sticks, pine cones, paper napkins that they find, old food that has been thrown away by people. They are relentless and I'm always on guard when we are walking. The only toys I can give them are the Kong toys, and all have to be bigger than their mouths, and I still have to supervise. We bought them a Jolly Ball, it is a huge ball, and it has a handle on top, we thought it was safe, but on the first day, they were able to chew off the handle.

    Phew. Good to hear he's better today.

    Blue couldn't navigate our wood floors either. Too slippery for an uncoordinated bullie baby.

    What we did is get runners, then eventually rugs. It made it much easier on him.

    Good LORD Monica… I think you gave them the wrong names. Hoover, Dyson, Eureka, Dirt Devil… LMAO!!! I know in all seriousness, it's NOT funny… I'm sure they have put you thru so much worry. Monica I always appreciate your advice, you seem to notice many things that we tend to overlook

    No problem, just being cautious. I've been to the vet too many times for Dozer eating socks, and Blossom eating 7 bags of penny candies, she doesn't eat household items, or too many things like Dozer, but she is definitely food motivated, and will get into the garbage, and eat everything in there, and she always seems to find food outside, a couple of weeks ago, she found a whole banana that somebody had dropped, we were on a walk, and next thing I know my husband is wrestling with her to grab the banana out of her throat that she had tried to swallow whole, she managed to get the soft banana on the inside, and hubby pulled the peel from her throat, she was determined to eat that banana. She also knows how to open the dog food bin with her nose, and will dive in and inhale as much as she can before we stop her. We have to turn the bin towards the wall, so she can't open it. I'm sure she would eat until she blew up. Lol. My friends Chocolate Lab did tragically die that way, he had gotten into a whole box of Milkbones during the night when they were sleeping, and her son found him on the floor in the morning, he had eaten so many Milkbones, and ate them so fast that they all got stuck In his throat and he choked to death. It was so sad, and her little boy was devastated.

    Happy to hear his limp is gone, that has happened to so many on here where it just goes away the next day. I think it's growing pains.
