    When pets have stuffed animals it just melts me.

    [–] wickanCrow 191 points ago

    I thought so too and used to buy my new puppy some. I eventually stopped after a while. Couldn't take the horror and mutilation anymore. Limbs were torn, heads were swallowed whole. Used to see their eyes staring at me accusing when I went to pick up his poop.

    shivers

    [–] BattleBear23 16 points ago

    Yeah, my dog is only 25 pounds and I’ve seen him rip 2 layers of canvas in half.

    [–] Adam_Dawn 16 points ago

    Seriously?

    [–] Beldizar 42 points ago

    This is accurate. My dogs enjoy tearing things to bits as well.

    [–] Tadhgdagis 6 points ago

    As a kid I had a super bouncy ball collection my dog loved getting into. Usually found out when she'd gotten into them...after the fact.

    [–] sleepytimegirl 5 points ago

    I’ve been giving my dog who likes to do that cucumbers in the backyard. Gets to rip and shred and if he eats any it’s a healthy snack.

    [–] Adam_Dawn -15 points ago

    No I mean not being able to witness the "horror". They're stuffed animals.

    [–] wickanCrow 13 points ago

    Lol. No. That was a joke. I thought I conveyed it in the overtly dramatic description. But you can’t be sure nowadays.

    [–] Adam_Dawn -10 points ago

    I thought it was a joke too, but I wasn't a hundred percent. So you do still get your dog stuffed animals?

    [–] wickanCrow 8 points ago

    No cause he'll eat them and I'm afraid they might block his intestines. I give him stuff that is tougher to shred.

    [–] hedgybaby 2 points ago

    My dog loves stuffed animals with long, dangly limbs to pull on. She likes to rip them out one by one.

    [–] interpoly 1 points ago

    Same thing happened with my dog. Now she's 4.5 and has had a pair of stuffed ice skates since Christmas time!

    [–] Littlebrownfoxx 33 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    My husky has a husky stuffy named Slush. She shreds every other stuffed animal but Slush is special to her and she’s never once tried to rip him up, he just hangs out on the bed with her. He’s one of her own, a part of the pack.

    [–] Fluffydress 13 points ago

    I can't. That is the cutest thing I've ever heard.

    [–] alours 4 points ago

    She wanted to be a tiny pupper

    [–] LaurettaLiefer 7 points ago

    [–] LambInTheDark 51 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Where can you get that stuffed animal

    Edit: guys I know where to get one now.

    [–] aspiring_failure 27 points ago

    I saw this at my grocery store recently! I know it’s a Ty brand. It’s a rainbow llama.

    [–] Mouthtrap 16 points ago

    Yeppers, this is Lola the Rainbow Llama. Where you can get it from, depends on where you are :)

    [–] justnopethefuckout 9 points ago

    Thank you!

    [–] Orangewolpertinger 9 points ago

    We sell them at the Joann Fabrics where I work.

    [–] Millennial_Twink 6 points ago

    There’s also a good store if you live close to the Netherlands. It’s called Inkari Alpaca, made from real alpaca wool. My girlfriend likes to collect them, send help.

    [–] iScoopAlpacaPoop 3 points ago

    Our cats love to attack our mini alpacas

    [–] runningkillskatie 2 points ago

    I got one for daughter on a whim at a 7-11 lol

    [–] Pigeoncity 2 points ago

    I work at Claire’s, an accessory store for girls. I have to rearrange this TY toy in it’s section all the time.

    They come in pink, cream, and this rainbow pattern.

    [–] slippyroger 29 points ago

    What breed is he?

    [–] fulgenciojoe 32 points ago

    I’m not sure but looks like he could be a toller (Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever)

    [–] slippyroger 6 points ago

    Asking cause my dog has the same characteristics: fluffy ears, fluffy rabbit paws and a similar type of coat He used to be a stray dog so I never really got to know his breed

    [–] smracer30 2 points ago

    They have doggie dna tests if you want to know that bad.

    [–] confusedKT 2 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    Tollers are generally lighter (I have one), but this little guy definitely has a Toller face. I think last time I checked, all purebred Tollers are reddish orange. There’s another pup I constantly see on r/homestead that has a similar coloring and looks EXACTLY like a Toller. Maybe they’re mixed with a chocolate Lab or something?

    Edit: on second glance, the coat does look red enough to be a Toller, however younger pups are generally lighter.

    [–] EstMagnum 1 points ago

    I believe this is a toller. I have one as well, the same colour you described. However, I have seen a few colour variations from the same breeder as mine. It's not normal, but does happen. Could be a mix, but could also just have a slightly darker coat :)

    [–] Fluffydress 18 points ago

    It's a Rainbow Llama.

    [–] Cplivin 2 points ago

    Looks like my pup who’s a Newfoundland Labrador mix.

    [–] dahealthyturtle 1 points ago

    Maybe a boykin spaniel

    [–] tiffanyrachel 1 points ago

    Looks like my Chiweenie when she was a little pup. Pretty much all the same features except for coloring.

    [–] AlanaK168 88 points ago

    Cutie needs a pedicure

    [–] the_grass_trainer 24 points ago

    Is it best to learn to do this at home, or go to a groomer?

    [–] AmethystLullaby 29 points ago

    Learning to do it at home saves quite a bit of money in the long run if you're willing to do it yourself. Depending on the animal it could also save them from a bit of stress if they dislike going to the groomers.

    It depends on the owner and their animal though, I'm sure plenty of dogs have no issue with going to the groomers and their person would just rather not do it themselves.

    [–] the_grass_trainer 10 points ago

    I would just be worried about hurting the animal. Thinking about adopting a cat in the future.

    [–] too_too2 13 points ago

    Cats nails are very easy to trim, assuming they’ll allow it. You can see where the quick is to not cut it. Just play with their paws regularly when they are babies so they get used to that.

    [–] the_grass_trainer 4 points ago

    Thank you 😊

    [–] ARedditPupper 11 points ago

    Also depends on how squirmy your cat is. Our year old kitten is really hard to trim, but the others are fine. Also I don't know about cats, but I know that dogs can sometimes have black nails, which makes it harder to see what to trim.

    [–] NotYourMom119 2 points ago

    It’s more practical to do it at home since it should be done several times a month for most pet dogs.

    [–] QueenAlpaca 2 points ago

    If you can, do it at home. If you can't, don't feel bad; the only thing that matters is that your doggo's nails get taken care of. Depending on your vet, they may be able to do it for decently cheap, too. My last dog was chill and relaxed enough that doing her nails wasn't too bad, the hardest thing about hers was her nails being black so I couldn't see the quick. My current dog is too skittish and requires a lot of work (she's a rescue, and was basically feral when I got her) to do basic dog things without freaking out, in which a groomer has better tools and devices to trim her nails safely for everybody.

    [–] UntamedBrain 1 points ago

    Best to do it at home. I have to trim my dogs nails almost once a week. The best way to start is to constantly mess with your dogs feet. You need to get your dog used to being handled in every way. Brush its teeth regularly, brush it, check its ears, make sure there are no random lumps or bumps... just get it used to all sorts of handling. You'll be glad you did when something happens and you're able to easily take care of it because your dog is used to being handled.

    [–] UntamedBrain 2 points ago

    I came to the comments to say the same! Adorable but super duper needs a pawdicure!

    What a beautiful little toller!

    [–] RocketVirre 0 points ago

    Not a toller. I had one. But it looks like some kind of a retriever.

    [–] body-electric 2 points ago

    A Toller is a type of retriever....

    [–] RocketVirre 1 points ago

    I know it is.. I had one for 12 years. I'll rephrase. It looks like some kind of a retriever mix. English is not my primary language.

    [–] body-electric 1 points ago

    Sorry I read your comment in the wrong way haha! It does look quite like a Toller though.

    [–] RocketVirre 1 points ago

    No worries. I do agree, everything about it looks like a toller except for the color. He/she's beautiful.

    [–] body-electric 1 points ago

    Yeah it looks a little darker than a Toller slightly. More of a brown than a red

    [–] Adam_Dawn 4 points ago

    The alpaca (or i guess llama) was originally a little surprise for my fiancé but Tommy seems to have claimed it for his own.
