Another Green Reptile for Lucy!

As I've mentioned, I feel very badly when Lucy's favorite toys "have accidents" that result in them no longer being a part of Lucy's world. It's utterly predictable, but off to Petco I went in search of something that could take the place of Lucy's green gator (who has most definitely left this world!) and withstand the constant abuse that my little boxer bestows upon her favorite toys for longer than one hour. Frankly, Petco is not my first choice for "tough" toys- because their version of tuff, just ain't tough enough for Lucy. But, in a pinch, it'll do!
Lucy always seems to know when I've got something special for her. She also knows that striking a pose and acting like a polite puppy is the best way to get her surprise from her mama.

"Whatcha got, Mom? Can I sees it?"

"Dis is pretty interesting, ma! But, I hopes you knows dat you didn't fool me... Just cuz dis ting is green, doesn't mean it's my gator... I's appreciates ya trying, though!"

"He's pretty cool, ma! He makes lots of very louds noises! Ands I can carry him all over da house, just like dis! I tinks I'll keep him!"

Despite the fact that the new green snake is not Lucy's gator, I think she's found a new friend because she's been carrying the snake all over the house, and even slept with it last night! Is it just me, or is Lucy partial to the color green?


  1. awwwww yay!!!!!my boxer boy was partial to a pink hello kitty stuffy. it was hilarious!!!

  2. Thanks for following! Yes, it is hard to please and entertain a doggie. Mine decided to choose my phone as a chew toy.

    We have a very tough few toys, made out of really hard and elastic rubber. It's harder for her to destroy them.

  3. New toys are the best! I wish mine would stick around for longer than a few minutes ;-)

  4. Oh Lucy that looks like a good one. Our stuffies go to the ER once in Sheila for stitches

  5. That is the nicest toy EVER! Enjoy, my friend! And don't let it out of your sight!

  6. Oh horror! Green Gator is gone???!!! We thought he was in the hospital getting fixed! RIP Gator. Hope the new toy lasts for awhile.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella
