Her favorite toy

It suprises me that after all this time, the frog is still her favorite toy. Steven was unloading her toys from the dryer, and Shelby ran off with with a the freshly laundered frog and settled into a patch of sun for a nap with her favorite toy.

Then a couple days later, I find her in her bed again, with her frog, this time under her chin. Shel slept with the little frog all night.

I guess I'll have to find yet another frog when this one falls apart. This is already Shelby's second frog, a gift at Christmas, after her first frog was beyond repair.

my pug likes a certain stuffed toy with big eyes too, perhaps there is a connection with the big googly eyes...interesting.

For Cappy, it's the cat. A nasty, chewed-up cat plush toy that she alternatives whipping around, chewing on, and snuggling with.

Ive started buying multiples of the same toy so there arent any separation issues when one toy has to be 'put down'.

Ha!-Ha! The eyes match!! That's funny!
Shelby is soooo cute-and so is her frog.

So cute! I love your blog (esp the pictures!!) I like to see ways that shelby is similar to another pug I know, George. George also likes to hold onto his toys and falls asleep with his head on or next to them. It's the best.

thanks winnie for this website on shelby, i check it every day.
we who are owned by pugs are the most loved people in the world

my boy blue has a sheepskin baby hippo
he sits by the washer/dryer till it comes out then very carefully smells it.

carries it by one ear to my bed and places it in the middle of the bed ...and goes to sleep with his head on his "baby"

Dear Winnie and Steven-thanks for unselfishly sharing Shelby's life with us.
We love all the pictures and they tell us

Shelby loves her froggie!

Hi Winnie!
We found our pug that same froggie at PetSmart about six months ago. You can stock up!

It's amazing how our dogs/cats get attached to a favourite toy (e.g. blanket, soft toy, chewies etc..)!

I just bought Ollie this same frog--he's currently "moshing it up" with the toy right now! Is it something about the bug eyes?

Pugs love anything squeeky. My pugs personal favorite is an AKC bushy-tailed squirrel at PetCo. They love Shelby's blog, too.

This frog is making the rounds in the pug community. Paddy also owns the same polka-dot frog. http://mikelle.typepad.com/my_weblog/2005/04/paddy.html

Our puggy, Inu used to have a stuffed frog that was her favorite toy too. It was so cute the way she would squeak the squeaker when she as little the toy was almost he size of her! She looks like a little boa constrictor trying to eat the frogs stomach in one whole bite! We really need to get her another one of those.

What surprises me is that after all that time her toys still look so new. Lokie just tears them up so quickly...that and the fact that he drags them all out into the yard as well...ugh, I usually try to toss them after a month or two..
