Cheap Toys

Isn't it always the way with children and puppies? You can buy the best toys, and an empty cardboard box is still far more appealing!

Daddy brought this home from work and so far it is proving to be very popular.



Mind you, at the rate it's being nibbled I don't think it will be around for long, but at least they're in plentiful supply!

Don't you just love her cute little puppy bottom? She's going to hate these photos when she's older!

Yes, boxes are fun to chew, but fingers are even tastier!



I wasn't quick enough to catch the leap out of the box, just the feet!

That last picture is just too funny. Yes, Cassidy DOES have a cute bottom...she's getting SOOOO big already!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Mojo said...

Cardboard boxes are number one favourite in this house too! We've graduated to heavy duty packing cases. Most days the floor is covered in a million small pieces.

She looks such a sweetie - even the finger chomping is done in a thoughtful way. Mojo was an evil fiend at that age.

They've got the same curly tails, though!

You do have a cute hiney, Cassidy! Mom has a hiney shot of Mitch when he was younger that she just loves! Mitch is still into chewing boxes so Martin had best bring LOTS of them home!

Joe Stains said...

Here is where I must make a confession, I am scared to death of cardboard boxes!! :O I don't know why, but I just am! Cassidy sure seems to be enjoying that one!

Gus said...

You guys have a house that is decorated to coordinate with AireDales! We love the way the rug sets off Cassidy's coloring. Muzzer has a wardrobe that goes well with Wires, I guess it would work for Airedales too, but I won't let her find out.

I must admit.. you have a very cute bottom!!!

Stanley said...

K & M!

Cassidy is growing so fast! I'm with her on toys, though. My favorite thing about any package I get is always the box (because they're so awesome!).

Cassidy's booty is very cute. I'm partial to airedale puppy butts, but my sissy, Stella's, butt is pretty cute too!

Goober love,
Stanley

Kirby said...

Love the bum! Cassidy's bottom is just too cute. There is just something about an airedale puppy's bottom. She is getting big so fast!
Boxes were and still are a favorite of mine. Nothing beats a nibble on the flaps. Glad to see you are keeping the little one busy! Say Hi to Harry for me!!

Your pal,
Kirby

Arabella said...

mommy loves how Cas scoots back on her bottom with the box in her mouth. Mom went to great lengths to get me the toys kids & puppies love. I always ignore them until I know she isn't watching - then I go to town.

Scruffy & Lacie said...

A Dale butt!!!
How cute is that!!! Cassidy, you are one cute Dale...Harry is gonna have his work cut out for him with all of the boyfriends ur gonna have!!
When are you gonna post? We wanna hear your voice!!

Now Mumsie wants a Dale...hmmm...and Daddy will want a divorce!

Puppy love, Lacie

Lorenza said...

Cassidy!
You sure have a cuuuuuute butt!
About toys... the cheaper the better!
I like cardboxes too but smaller. You know easy to handle!
Have a good night

Bogart said...

Yup, I'm a cardboard box man too - I have to be careful that there are no kitties inside when I step in or pull one over to play with... it's happened before that someone was snoozing inside and it wasn't fun!

Love,
Bogart

Luckie Girl said...

Ooo..I love toys like that. It's part of recycling and save the earth program for us to be so interested in these paper boxes. Pawsonally, I really dig toilet rolls! They ROCK!

Amber-Mae said...

Hey, I'm BACK!

Woweee, Cassidy has grown quite a bit since I last saw her! Hehehe, I love cheap toys like paper & boxes too. She is tooo cute!

Love licks,

Lesley Rigby said...

Just let me get hold of it...............!

Incidentally does Harry have a big cardboard box to hide in?

Sophie Brador said...

She is so adorable. I love those little puppy moves. I can just hear what's going through little Cassidy's head ... Why is getting up so weird. Oh, because my legs are longer than they were a few minutes ago. Weird. Where's the box?

Jasmine said...

awww... Cassidy is so adorable!
looks like BamBam (our silky terrier) when he came at 8 weeks old - just black & tan.

wooo - nice bum there..*hehe*

2shibas said...

I'm scared to *death* of cardboard boxes, or pretty much anything new that enters the house. You're so brave for such a young pup, Cassidy! Does Harry like them, too?

xo,
Fievel

Penny & Poppy said...

Hey Cassidy! Good job with that cardboard box! Does Harry just stand back and watch you like you are a crazy puppy? I, Poppy still like to chew cardboard while Penny stares at me like she is way too dignified to join in. It's her loss!

Molly and Taffy said...

We are working on a cardboard box as well at the moment. The hoomans had the contents (wine) and we have the fun part.

How long does a cardboard box last in your house Cassidy?

Molly and Taffy

Caz said...

Yes your right the boxes are always better thab the toy. I could not beleive how big cassidy has got and yes what a cute puppy bot. It looks like cassidy has settled in a treat.
Harry did you get a play in the box too or did you just supervise.

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

Lovely vids and pics!

Yes, I agree totally about the box scenario, when my oldest two kids were very young, one Christmas when they had loads and loads of lovely presents, the thing which kept them occupied all the holiday was the box the new tv and video came in!

love and light Jeannie and Marvin xxxxxxx

Snowball said...

Cardboard boxes are nice and cheap toy. Any toys that can bring fun are great toys. Be it cheap or expensive. Lil Cassidy looks like a gentle kid.

When I was her age, I dash around and chase after everyone to bite their heels, fingers and any other parts that my mouth can reach. When I get bored, I even try to play with my owne image and chase after my own tail. Oh doG, it was such long time again.

Luv,
Snowball

Cubby said...

I love the boxes best, too! How cute!

Boo said...

Sunshade said...

Oh MY Harry!!! I watched the videos of you playing and "rolling" (even tho she was doing the rolls herself) your stinky, those were the BESTEST! Remember to assert yourself, since gurrrrls are known to take over if you know what I mean...hehe!

She looks like she's gonna be a hand full and she has a white blaze on her chest too just like STINKY, tho it's gotten smaller now that he's older.

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Hammer said...

Hi Cassidy
I'm just like you .. I have 2 baskets full of toys, but if there's a cardboard box around or anything else I can chew, I have just as much fun, especially if I'm chewing something I'm not supposed to. I give my mum my 'wounded' look and she is putty in my paws. Have a great weekend.
Love from Hammer

Ferndoggle said...
