Readers may be surprised to learn that many bostons and other fur babies come into rescue not ever having seen or played with a toy! Foster Moms and Dads often have the privilege of introducing their new arrivals to little animal shaped soft things that squeak and fly through the air when thrown by their foster family members. What to do with these things? It seems that they might actually be for me? I am not scolded when sniffing, biting or even chewing on these creatures.

Are they alive? Should I tear them to shreds to save my newly found family? Should I carefully remove the squeaky thing to silence them forever? Or should I softly suck on them until they become drenched.

With much delight, our fur kids learn the joy and delight of these toys. An expensive way to teach love and play to a dog who may have missed out on the fun before entering rescue.

One such foster, Ollie learned about toys and love and found a forever family who had lots of toys waiting for him. Renamed Tucker, he continues to delight in the simple pleasure found in these toys.

Wouldn't it be nice if more people could remember and find happiness in simple pleasures. Just ask Tucker!
