    Hahaha, im so glad its not just my dog! Yup, platic bottles also a fav at my place. I put kibble in them to sometimes and get the OH to drill a few holes around the bottle, then when he runs around the yard with it in between chews it rattles and shakes out kibble, works wonders, hours of entertainment.

    Salvo's and the second hand market have become my best friend for blankets and the occasional stuffed toy (Same, cant stand all that stuffing! But every now and again he gets one) but like your fur babys ozeymum, Leo LOVES stuffed toys (They last 2 minutes at my place now, used to last 2 days when he was smaller)

    And oh Magdalena, i so know! LOL It is in the breed too i think! If we have a guest over and they have a soft drink bottle (full) he eyes it off and winges at it in a drop position and i have to kept telling him to leave it! But cant stand those squeeky toys! Drives me nuts! So we have NONE (poor Leo! I kept looking at them lately thinking ill get him one, just one)

    And each night Leo runs up to me with his Kong around 8pm and will put it in my hand and sit (As if to say fill it!) so i put a couple of small cubes of cheese at each end with kibble in the middle and microwave for 10 secs so the cheese starts to melt into the kibble and he loves that

    I just always want to buy him the new tough everlasting toy, but he isnt interested in them (Although he is so excited when they come out of the bag and will play for 5-10 minutes with them but then, dumped, no fun. So i give in, although i was looking at ordering him the 'pooch ball' today but had to stop myself (Nooo, dont do it!) But he loves tennis balls! So guess what, im ordering it tomorrow anyways! LOL

    HEY LEO!

    Just remembered something! I have one toy for Misi that she can't get her teeth through. It's a 'food cube' . She goes crazy with it! get's sooo frustrated because she can't bite it. She barks at it, paws it, crys and carries on....i take it awy from her and hide it till next time because the whole neighbourhood can hear her.
    Anyway, i got this one at a 'pet expo' from 'bark busters' . I just went on their website and it looks like the american one barkbusters.com have a online shop and they sell the food cube around $15us. but i could not see toys on the australian one...barkbusters.com.au...

    Ahh, you must mean the buster food cube Have been meaning to get Leo one of these, but he seriously has so many treat dispensing toys, I just havent got around to it yet as he has enough at the moment. Have been wanting to get one soon though, you can get them in OZ is you buy online but havent seen them in any shops as yet

    I'm over it too! I just buy them from the cheap $2 type shops now. Taya LOOOVES the squeaky toys but they last ohhh about 30 seconds before they lose their squeak! Then she rips them to shreds. Because mum is involved in netball she has a heap of old netballs. So we give them to Tay - she loves playing soccer with them and is getting pretty good at it too!

    A couple of times I have given her a cheap toy from the markets - its a round ball made of hard plastic with one of those funny noise things in the middle. She really loves it but has figured out if she chews on the little bones moulded into the plastic she can rip it apart even faster!!

    I have also discovered if I get her a soft squeaky toy the squeaker lasts longer - I'm thinking because it's got all that padding.

    A coconut - now there's something different!

    As others have said.....the plastic milk containers are awesome!!!! You can also put some holes in them and add treats...then once they are all chewed up..into the recycling bin they go!!
