A month ago our Ginormous Hide-A-Squirrel toy arrived in the mail. Now there are many sizes of the Hide-A-Squirrel toy, but I’ve been holding out for the wildly popular ginormous one since Miles was a puppy. Now that he is an adult, Miles only goes crazy for really special toys. Although not evident by what he will sneakily consume on walks (evil bark chips!) adulthood has brought on some “standards.” I admit it, I love getting toys for Miles. So I was pretty excited to rip open the package of my most coveted dog toy (yes, my) and see if he’d enjoy it as much as I hoped he would. Turns out… Miles loves the squirrel tree toy. He enjoys getting the squirrels, one by one, out of the tree, taking his time not to do so too fast, then shaking the tree around and playing with the squirrels some more. If you visit us at home right now, you are sure to be offered a fuzzy squeaky irresistible little squirrel of your own to snorf on by the ever-generous Mr. Miles.
And check out the head-shaking action in the video:
My garden-savy Nana is always battling those pesky squirrels. She would be so proud.
