i would like to draw your attention to a little bit of asymmetry in my life. on the left you will see miriam's vast quantity of stuffed toys and on the right you will see my paltry collection. i think this is a huge injustice! most of her toys squeak or rattle or make cool crunchy noises and some even play songs! half of mine squeak but i made the decision to stop their squeaking through a series of delicate operations. miriams toys are singing a siren's song to me, i hear their song at night. they call, "heeeeersheeeeeeeey...come chew on meeeeee...i need a tuuuuuummy tuck" its more than i can bear! (haha...i made a pun!) anyways, i need more toys! something is wrong here. i think mom should let us share! i mean she doesn't DO anything with them right now anyways! and by the time she is old enough to really play with them i will have redecorated them to her liking. i am sure she will appreciate the dismemberments, decapitations, and various plastic surgeries i will perform on them.

She would never notice if you just take one a week! The chewing goodness there just breaks my heart ... go for it!!

Hershey, surely your Mother would not care if you took one ... or two. Zach is right ... go for it.

Hershey, Zach and Copper are right! No one would notice if you did it slowly over a couple of months. But, we think your toys look pretty cool. Maybe you should just work the guilt angle and get more toys. Miriams toys probably have buttons and eyes and things that are bad for you to chew on.

Hershey's Mom! Yes, you! Get Hershey some more toys!!

obviously miriam has not been taught the VERY important lesson called sharing! as the older and wiser family member you should teach her!

Ivy said...

oh no!! that is such a terrible waste of good chewing toys and stuffing that needs to be removed!

i am going to haf to start collecting all the toys i can so that i will haf more than the baby wen he comes!

Hey Hershey, when she gets older and plays with the toys, she will leave them all over the floor and you can take them then. It will make Mom nuts trying to keep your toys away from Miriam and her toys away from you and so you both will win. She can build her immunity from the dog slobber germs and you can do surgery on her toys. I bet your Mom hasn't even thought of that! Throw in a few cat slobbery toys and Miriam will be a walking (or crawling) animal slobber eater putting all those surgically altered toys in her little mouth. YES! Dogs rule!

Hi, Hershey.
You are right. That is not fair. Take one or two. I am sure your Mom nor Miriam will notice it!
Lets have fun!
Have a good night

What Copper says is true. My mom's human coworker sanitized their house when they had a baby. The baby is now about 5 years old, and he suffers from cold after cold after cold. I say Miriam needs to build up her immunity, so sharing toys is a good idea! You don't mind a little human baby drool on your toys, do you?

Yes, yes, I see what Ivy said! She said "he." Is Ivy's baby gonna be a boy puppy?

Hey Hershey,
I thought that the pile on the left was YOURS! Oh dog, this is so depressing but I guess you could take one, or two..or maybe say three every few days. I don't think Miriam or your Mom would even notice. Be discreet!!

Good luck ~

Isabella said...

That is just wrong! Before the baby, you were the light of their life, and now that the baby had come along? Those two pile of toys (big pile for baby and teeny pile for you )says it all! Poor Hershey!
Big Wags,

You do need lots more toys!!! You should definatley take care of some of her toys, too. My Mom says babies don't have teeth for awhile so there's no way she can properly play with those toys anyway!

Maggie said...

I say you take them secretly! Just wait till they aren't paying attention and the POUNCE on them!!! Well...I guess that wouldn't be very secretive would it?? :) It would be fun about I come and help you take them??? Oh, I started a blog Hershey! There isn't much yet, but there will be!!
