Is it chewy? Does it squeak? Is it a ball?
Every dog has different favorites.
But Honey’s favorite toy has some unusual features. Can you guess what it is?
9 Traits Of The Best Toy Ever
My dog Honey is a playful girl. She loves all kinds of toys. But she has one particular favorite. Probably because her favorite toy…
It’s never in the same place for long. Sometimes Honey has to go searching for it.
You wouldn’t think a toy could be tricky but this one can hide. Honey never knows where it will turn up.
Makes Funny Noises
Mostly silly ones and a few disgusting ones. But many dogs find noise stimulating and Honey is no different.
Goes With All Kinds Of Games
Honey can play tug with her favorite toy. She can wrestle with it. And she even cuddles with it.
Has Places For Hidden Food
What could be better than a fun toy with treats?
Can Handle Rough Treatment
Don’t you hate it when an expensive toy falls apart in a few days? This one shows no signs of damage after years of play.
Sometimes it’s boisterous and loud. Other times it’s only a little more active than a dust bunny.
Is As Easy To Play With Outside As Inside
I don’t allow Honey to take all her toys out of the house. But this one is nearly indestructible. And washable.
It isn’t always Honey who starts the games. Sometimes the toy comes to her.
Have you figured out what Honey’s favorite toy is yet?
You guessed it. It’s a human. One particular human—my husband, Mike.
Honey comes to me when she needs something. Or when she wants comfort. But she goes to Mike when she wants to play.
Because he’s the best toy ever.
Honey’s Birthday Week Surprise #1
I’ll be celebrating Honey’s fifth birthday every day from now until January 26, the actual day of her birth, by giving her a special treat.

Let’s make this a party.
