    Squeakless Dog Toys?

    I know there must be such a thing out there somewhere. My border collie, Rudy, loves little plush toys, but as soon as it squeaks, he's terrified. Won't go near it again, walks a wide berth around it. The salespeople at all the pet stores are speechless when I ask for such a thing. I guess Rudy is the only dog in IL, maybe the country, that is a skeerdy-cat of little squeak toys. We got him one last Christmas where I unstitched the belly, removed the squeaker, restitched it. He was thrilled and carried that little "baby" everywhere; even slept with it. Well, it finally bit the dust and I was hoping to find one already "prepped," so to speak. Please let me know if any of you dog lovers know of such a toy or a resource. Google didn't turn up much of anything.

    Maggie (who is recovering from snake bite as we speak) got hold of one of the grandkids little plush toys, a little armadillo. About the size of your hand. I guess that is her baby, cause she has never even sank her teeth into the thing. This is the dog who eats sofa cushions, shoes, etc. So, I guess what I'm saying is maybe just a child's plush toy from the toy dept. would work for Rudy too.

    Wow, what an idiot I am. Never even considered a child's plush toy. Guess that's why nothing much came up on Google!! I guess I have mentally kept the 2 categories of "toys" separated in my mind.
    Thanks.

    I have a great idea. Buy the toys, give them to my dog, he will not rest until the squeak is out of the toy, then I can give them back to you. However they may not look to good....

    Do dogs dig catnip toys? Then he won't care about the squeeky.

    Just a warning. Our son's big Lab loved tennis balls and nearly inhaled one. They had to jerk him up and do a Heimlich like manuever to dislodge it.

    Hey, I've even looked at cat toys. And I know I saw a website for squeakless dog toys. I swear! Cute ones too. Ones where the "fake fur" dosen't shed in their mouths. I'll keep looking and I will post it when I find it.
