Diesel has a stuffed elephant. He got it the day i got him from pound hell. He bounded with it big time. Well him and kane ripped it in half fighting over it. So now it has no stuffing in it and is in 2 pieces. So mom threw the head part away. Diesel cant sleep without that piece of it he has left. Am I doing harm by letting him keep that piece of it with him or should i throw it away? I have tried replacing it but he want play with it. Should i just let him keep it.
If we ban Pit Bulls and Rottweilers are humans some dont like next ?
Hello Jgermansh, If I were you I think I would let him keep the other part, and maybe just don't let Kane near the toy. If it is big enough then maybe cut it in half, so if for some reason anything happened to it again, you would still have a piece of it to give to him, but of course make sure it would never be a choking hazard towards your handsome doggy. Diesel sounds pretty attatched to his elephant toy, and I really don't know what to tell you. It's like when your a baby, and you have this certain blanket from the moment your born and as you get older, you just can't seem to throw it away or some just can't seem to sleep without that special blanket or toy. Diesel probably feels comforted when he sleeps because he has his special elephant toy and that toy has just been through every moment of life with him. What ever decision you make, you should know that diesel will never hate you, it will just take time for him to adjust.
Find another stuffed elephant. Be sure to remove any parts that can be choking hazards such as eyes. Take the piece of remaining elephant and sew it onto the new one. Then as he gradually gets used to the new toy, you can remove the old added on part.
If you are a dog and your owner suggests that you wear a sweater, suggest that he wear a tail.
