Toy Problems

Hello. This is The Daily Bone and I’m your indefatigable doggie host Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

It has come to my attention that I have neglected my squeaky toy procedure and maintenance column for quite a while. I have noticed, however, that a lot of doggies are showing off their new squeaky toys on their doggie blogs. I’m pleased to see they’re using proper technique in un-stuffing and de-squeaking their treasures. Keep up the good work doggies! 

Now, I have quite an extensive collection of squeaky toys in my storage facility that I still play with, despite the fact that they’re mostly pretty old and beat up by now. My humans seem to think that sometimes I need a challenge. So today they stuffed one of my tennis balls into an old squeaky toy. 

I set to work immediately. Please note some of the following photographs might be a bit blurry. This is because I was in constant motion to solve this egregious problem. How long do you think it took me to get the tennis ball out of the squeaky toy? 

Hah! Success in less than ten minutes! 

I was then presented with a new problem. The old squeaky toy through the doggie collar trick!

Fortunately, I’ve had much experience in solving this type of conundrum! 

It just needs a little tug and …

I am a champion problem solver!! 



  1. Mr. Stubbs bows down to you Chester! He destuffs great but you have the problem solving down pat. Of course he is only 10 months old. Bol!

  2. Hello and thanks for visiting TDB! We checked out your doggie blog and saw that you indeed have excellent squeaky toy de-stuffing technique too. Keep up the good work, and see you soon!

  3. Destuffing toys is the whole purpose of having them in the furst place...the fun part for the peeps is trying to find one that challenges that skill to the utmost!

  5. Crikey Chester. You're REAL smart, aye?? I'm not much of a problem solver. If I got something stuck on me I just run like the wind until it falls off.

    Love ya lots♥
