Do you have any pets?

Postby Parker » Mon Sep 01, 2014 6:24 pm

I've always wondered if people who like stuffed animals get them because they can't (for whatever reasons) get a real pet? I myself have almost always had a pet. Now I have dog that also kinda likes stuffed toys... Well at least for a while before she tears them up :D Luckly she knows not to touch the ones that don't belong to her.

How about the rest of you? Do you have pets and if you do how do they treat your stuffed toys?

Our family also has a dog but he is not really interested in stuffed animals. We have them long before the dog but always wanted a pet too, so we got one when we saw we can take care of one :D

We were worried that he may tear them up but no, they sit on the bed and he doesn't give them any attention at all, not when he was a puppy, not today when he's a big dog :lol: Sometimes he wags his tail at other stuffed dogs or one stuffed wolf but that's about it :D

Haha, I see. Well I'm glad your dog doesn't destroy your stuffed animals. You're lucky ones :D

My dog is still relatively young so I guess her interest in toys will slowly start to fade away as she gets older... Or maybe she's like me and they will actually become more interesting to her :lol:

I've missed this one...
Growing up I had a dog for about 16 years. She was great. After she passed away though I haven't had any pets since. Not because I don't want to, but simply I had just gone to building my life and I haven't got the time I think a pet would deserve to get. So I basically keep my stuffies as easier to look after pets :lol:

Don't worry :) If she hasn't taken a liking to the stuffies when she was a small pup, she won't be biting them now :) Your stuffies are safe :D

I think you are right :D She continues to not pay much attention to the stuffed animals. Even when I bring them up to her, she just sniffs them and looks at me with a "what am I supposed to do with that" type of a look in her eyes :lol:

Ah, so you and your stuffies are almost guaranteed safe :D Unless you do something really bad to make her sad enough to eat them, she won't touch them.

Mind you, if she does chew or otherwise damage a toy or something else while you are away, don't punish her for that. It is likely that she won't realize what it is for and it will come as a nasty surprise when in reality she is happy that you are back. And also, sometimes dogs do these things when they are alone precisely because they know they are not supposed to. But since they are sad and scared their owner is not around, they are willing to take the punishment just to have the owner come back to them. So they do something they shouldn't because they know he or she will come back to sort it.
