When I bought the Hartz Dura Play bone, I never imagined that it would take over our lives (well not really, but almost). Nor that is was going to be around for this long. On the ticket in the store it said that it could not be punctured. I didn’t exactly believe that, but I thought I’d give it a try. Every other toy that we have bought for Molly, she has chewed it to pieces, pulled the stuffing out and ate its face off.
For the last 2 weeks she has carried this bone around in her mouth everywhere she goes. When she eats she lays the bone right beside her bowl. When she is finished she picks it up and goes in search of me or Jose to throw the blue bone so she can run after it. If no one is paying her any attention she walks around whinnying with the bone in her mouth. She even sleeps with the darn thing.
During the night I am constantly rolling over the bone and getting woke up by a loud s-q-u-e-e-k! I have even moved it and laid it on the night stand beside the bed and she will go get it. I don’t have the heart to take it away from her. She just seems to love it so much. When she is not chasing the blue bone across the room she is laying around licking it. (rolling my eyes and shaking my head)
During the day when I am working she gets the bone and comes and sits beside my chair wanting me to play. Which I can’t because I am working. She will take her bone and go under the bed and whine and scratch the floor like she is digging in the dirt. The first day she did this I thought something was wrong with her, but she only wanted to play. She hasn’t put this bone down for longer than a couple of minutes, at a time, in the last 2 weeks.
I am wondering if something is wrong, or she just has a new toy that she loves? She is making me a little looney wanting to play fetch all day, every day, except when she is sleeping.
