Toy stories

Mum has always entertained her puppies and young dogs with home-made toys, such as yoghurt pots and milk bottles, which is great as far as reusing is concerned, but the noise is horrific.

So when we moved to Cardiff, we decided to invest in “proper” toys, just to get some peace and quiet. As a compromise, we decided we’d only get Snipe new toys if they were on offer – and no squeaky ones!

That decision was very sensible. This is her original toy with the replacement next to it:
