My favorite toy is paws down the guy we call ratty. I’ve never been big on toys, but this guy makes me crazy happy! If you follow us on Facebook, you have probably heard a bit about him already.
When I earned my Masters Title in Barn Hunt last month, I not only got fancy ribbons, I got this wonderful singing rat. No one but me is allowed to play with him.
Sometimes I just enjoy sitting with him, no squeezing or making him sing, simply being together.
Did I mention he sings? I love to hear his music. Mom sometimes says play music and then I will squeeze him so he sings to us. Unfortunately, Mom says he gives her a worm in her ear. I don’t know how that happens, but I’m glad the worm isn’t in my ear! What do you think of his singing? Not bad for a rat, eh?
Ratty loves it when I run around the house with him. I never take him outside because he might get damaged.
If he is too quite I can shake him and sometimes it makes him start singing to me. I think he loves me as much as I love him. The other night I refused to come in from the yard when called. Mom got creative and grabbed ratty, had him sing, and I flew, faster than the speed of light back into the house. I’ll do anything for ratty!
See how proudly I am stretched out with ratty? There is no doubt he is my very favorite toy ever! Look at his adorable smile.
At the end of the day, we curl up together and hit the bed for a nice snooze. No one can take him from me, even if I am sleeping. I’m very thankful that ratty and I are together. Does your dog have a favorite toy like I do?
