Death of a Cuz

We got a new Occy! This one is orange. I love the Occy. It makes such a cool sound. I want to try the fish and the little turtle, too. Are you listening, mom?

We also got a new Cuz, but you can already see who is making eyes at it. Dakota likes the obnoxious sound of the Cuz. I think the Cuz is doomed. RUN, CUZ!

Yep, already, the Cuz has lost half a foot. Dakota feels no remorse. She just keeps gnawing away at the poor thing.

Now the other half of the foot. She is ruthless. We call her Destructo. She is a bad girl. I try to tell her to throw the toys in the air or bat them around with her paws, but she ignores me and keeps chewing.

Can you see the second foot behind her head? This is in a five minute period, friends. She can't even slow down and savor the rubber taste. She is obsessed!

Now she is working on the squeaky part. It wont last long. She's got the death grip on the Cuz with her giant claws. After the squeaky goes, she will lose interest and go back to chewing her Nylabone ring. Nylabones are the only things she can't destroy in 10 minutes.

By the way, the cute orange Occy is now dead, too. This was not a good week for the toys in this house. I might as well just go to sleep...nothing to play with...

TOTALLY know what you are talking about. But in support of Dakota, destruction is FUN! Besides, once you rip the feet of the Cuz, it rolls properly.

Love and Licks,

This is why Charlie's not getting a Cuz. And he wouldn't stop with ripping the feet off - he'd swallow them!

We have never had a Cuz because Mom knows it would be destroyed in about the same time it takes Dakota. Poor Cubby, you take good care of toys and they still get destroyed!
