Emergency Squeaky Toy Surgery!

Hello. This is a TDB news flash. I’m your ebullient doggie reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.

This afternoon my Jason human brought home a present for me! A squeaky toy! Wow! This toy had two separate squeakers inside of it, and was in serious condition. I set to work immediately to surgically remove these deadly squeaky components. It was touch and go there for a while, as a yum yum dinner commenced promptly after the gift giving. My erudite colleague Joseph (Joey dog) Spaniel reprimanded me for neglecting my food watching duties, until he realized he would now be the sole recipient of any dropped morsels or left-overs whilst I remained focused on the surgery. 

Please hold all calls, nurse. This could take a while.

After about thirty minutes, I managed to extract the first malignant squeaky component. Wow that’s a relief! Now give me back my patient! This is not the time for photo ops! 

I will now proceed to excise the second and larger squeaky part. This could be dangerous. 

I have now exposed the tumor. Almost done and the patient is doing fine.


I'm pleased to announce the patient will make a full recovery.

True to its capricious squeaky toy nature, the rolly-roundy squeaky component, once removed from its victim, immediately retreated under the nearest chair! 

Both patient and doctor will now get some much needed rest. Don’t worry. My new and improved squeaky toy will be carefully guarded and inducted into my storage facility with the rest of my beloved, cherished, and raggedy toys. 


  1. BOL, Chester - great way to deal with those squeakers. We are going to have to try your technique with the Momster next time we get one of those squeakie stuffies around here. She just doesn't understand that we HAVE to remove those squeakers.

  6. OMD! I like to use my surgically sharp incisors to do squeaker removals too...but then I also remove all the guts, so that all that is left is skin, BOL!
    I do not know why growlmy doesn't like the guts spilled all over the floor...it is evidence of a job well done in my opinion!
