I am a male yellow Lab. My birth date is September 4th 2011. I am in training to be a guide dog for the blind. (guide dog school -Southeastern Guide Dogs) I'm my raiser's fifth guide dog puppy.

Friday Fun - The Indestructible Dog Toy

WHAT??? There really is a INDESTRUCTIBLE dog toy???
Yep, and that's what this post is all about :)
Most of you know, that I'm a very STRONG chewer - if you didn't, well... now you know.
I do have many dog bones, stuffies, and some other cool toys - but my raiser hasn't had any luck finding a fun "play toy" that really is INDESTRUCTIBLE... fur me :)
I told her there is no such thing, us dogs can tear up ANYTHING we want... But she decided to prove me wrong.
My raiser's brother does "welding" - and while at class, he decided to weld a small cube WITH water inside. This "water cube" was total fun balls to play with, and my raiser soon found out that it IS indestructible.
Well, my raiser's brother decided to make me another play cube... and add some steel balls inside (also leaving a couple little holes... so the noise can be heard, very well!).
Introducing, the INDESTRUCTIBLE DOG TOY...
Picture of a steel cube, about the size of a regular dog ball - it has small holes on each side and there are 6 steel balls inside
Enjoy the movie (and picture) below, of me playing with the cube.
Furry Friday kisses!

P.S. Please not that I'm not allowed to play with this toy all the time (but when I do, it's only with human supervision) - and my raiser doesn't let me sit down and "chew" on the cube (wouldn't be good on my teeth)... all I do is "push" it around, so it will make noise :)

Hi Y'all,

Rooo! ROOOO!

If the noise of the one with the balls inside doesn't drive your raiser to hide it from you...It looks like you're really enjoyin' bating that cube around!!

Thanks for stoppin' by. Y'all come back now,
Hawk aka BrownDog

That is just hysterical, Rudy. Great toy. We are glad you get to play with it under supervision, just to be safe, but we bet that cubic shape would make it tough for you to do much hard chewing anyway.

ha ha too funny! Yet if you are looking for an indestructible dog chew toy, I urge you to check out Goughnuts. They truly are! Check out the website www.goughnut.com

I think your raiser's brother may have a new marketable product. LOL Glacier could use one of those since he is a strong chewer like you are. Have fun :)

Yea, I agrees dis could be marketable but it kinda takes da fun outta destroying it...hehehehe!
Smart brudder da Raiser has!

Deborah said...

WOW, we would like one of those!
Have a nice weekend!

K9friend said...

That certainly appears to have passed the "fun" test!

Wow! You have someone who loves you enough to make you a toy! Indestructible at that! Lucky you!

houndstooth said...

Tee hee! I wonder if Morgan would like one of those... She really likes a challenge!


That corgi :) said...

Very cool! We like shiny things around here too!

Amber-Mae said...

That's actually a pretty cool toy! I bet it's really heavy. Loved that video! You look so funny playing with it. You must really like it!

Mango said...

Wow! That toy sure got you going.


Jan's Funny Farm said...

That looks like fun, Rudy.

Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

That looks cool! Though Muzzle thought the same as browndogcbr, that the noise would drive her (and my collie brother) round the bend LOL.

My Lab brother loves to try to destroy toys. I bet even he couldn't manage that one! Mum has found the Safestix pretty tough, but it's a new UK toy, don't know if it's available overseas yet.


Bailey Be Good! said...

Looks like you're having such fun with your new toy!!

LOVE your digging moves -- mommy says to tell you that you remind her of me. :)

Woofs & hugs,


Sue said...

That looks like so much fun. We aren't allowed to have hard toys because Tsar and Sky had root canals and Mom had to part with lots of green papers. She said "NO MORE HARD TOYS" and boy, she meant it.

We have not found an indestructible toy here either. Well, we have a very old hard plastic treatball that has lasted through lots and lots of puppies, but mainly because no one much cared for it after a while. No fun to pick up and carry. It made annoying noise too.
I know our cats would love a toy that sounds like your new creation. (A Rudy cube?) Of course the Mom would be the one who gets hit in the head with it. Always by accident, of course.

Father Tom said...

What a unique toy! Just the noise of the balls makes it fun to play with, I'm sure!


Jess the Dog Shopper said...

Hey we need one of those!! Does your raiser's brother do dumbbells as well??
