Babe doesn’t get excited about toys. She never has. Occasionally she’ll lay down and chew on a rubber toy, but that only happens once or twice a month. Babe is more of a food-driven pup. And when she’s not eating, she’s snoozing. It’s a nice, even life for her.
Banjo is extremely toy-driven. When she’s excited, she has a toy. When she’s playful, she has a toy. When she’s nervous, she grabs a toy. When it’s time for dinner, she runs to find her ball.
We haven’t yet renewed our BarkBox subscription since moving to Connecticut and Banjo’s toys were showing some heavy wear without the usual monthly renewal. So the other day I ordered about a half dozen toys for her from King Wholesale.
I had to replace her Flea. The old one was looking a little ragged.
And I had to replace one of her favorite toys — the Chuck It! indoor ball. I’d already thrown out the old one because it was so ratty and smelly. She had definitely noticed its absence and was over the moon when I gave her the new one.
It was like Christmas in the summer. Oh! And Babe got some edible treats as well.
