Yesterday Luna was a little too rough with her favorite toy, Sausage Dog. I came home to a crime scene! Thankfully, squeekies were still intact.
Today I preformed open heart surgery on Sausage Dog, Luna was very anxious to see how her beloved friend was doing.
Here's a picture from post-op. We'll keep you updated with Sausage Dog's condition !

That is so funny. One of my sphynx had a favorite toy that I sewed back together MANY times. After a bit I made some clones so he would have it even when one had been the victim of type slaughter.
You did a good surgeon job.

@Rachael McLain -- It's Mr. Rat #1 (Mr. Rat #2 is mostly in tact). I had such high hopes! Hey, maybe you can Frankenstein him... take the feet from another mutilated stuffie and sew them onto Mr. Rat #1!!

Did you want to see Mr. Whale? Mr. Whale only has half a stumpy tail. It's really tragic. Perhaps if I collect enough amputees I can send them your way and you can cobble together one functioning stuffie!

Oh I bet we could Frankenstein something together! the best part about all this is I picked up Sausage Dog and 4 other stuffed animals from a garage sale for only $5! Luna was in heaven when I brought them home. My previous border collie would immediately tear up and stuffed toys-we always had to buy him the very strong rubber ones. Luna on the other hand, loves them.

How worse for wear is Mr. Whale:LOL:
Lets see if he is beyond repair or if we could Frankenstein Mr. Whale and Mr. Rat to create a super stuffed toy for Max!

@Rachael McLain -- Wow, you scored a deal. By the way, how is Sausage Dog? Is he all ready for playing?

Here are the recent victims of Min's oral fixations (Max is pretty good with toys now):

Oh most of these are salvageable ! The only one I'd have to look at more is Mr. Fish. I can't say they'd be pretty but I'm confident I'd be able to close em up!

And I know ! I only bought a 5, there were more. Thinking back, I should have just bought the whole lot. Toys are so expensive! Whenever I'm by a dollar store I'll go see if there are any safe stuffed animals for her. I work at TJMaxx Homegoods and we have a fairly large dog and cat section in our store. I get a discount on top of the already decent prices so I've been slowly but surely building up some toys for Miss Luna.

Yes, Mr. Fish is ocular disadvantaged. Poor bloke.

LOL

If we lived in the same city I'd certainly hire you. I can't sew (buggered hands), so I just pull out the stuffing as it presents itself and make the toy last as long as I can. Mr. Fish is a play by supervision only toy otherwise he'd be gutted in no time.

That's fabulous that you work at TJMaxx... lucky you. They have some great cat stuff sometimes!

Let us know how Sausage Dog is faring.

It seems as if Luna's friends believe in safety in numbers walked into a mass gathering. Maybe they're deliberating Luna's punishment for too hard of rough-housing.

Looks like my handiwork has held up thus far!
