Do you worry your dog gets bored? I go overboard looking for interactive toys Emily will love. So, I’m sharing the best puppy toys I’ve found.
Dogs are the best nap takers in the world. But are they taking naps from boredom?
It’s hard to find toys that dogs stay interactive with. They lose interest, chew it up, or would rather play with your socks!
For fun…and I mean loads of fun…comment below & share your pets name, nickname and how you picked the name. I did this on a Facebook dog group and everyone had a blast reading all the creative names and how they picked them.

Today Emily is sharing her favorite toys and games. She’s a great DIY dog and loves to help. There are times I need her to stay busy so the paint can dry without nose or paw prints in the paint.
Emily’s favorite toy
This continues for up to 30 minutes or long enough for the chalk-based paint to dry.
The toy story
We went on a two week RV trip. The babble ball came along with us. Emily has a little bag used for small necessities….treats and toys. I went to pack the ball in her bag as I zipped up the bag the ball, said “oh, that tickles,” I found myself laughing at the ball.
At one point the ball ended up in the closet of the RV. One night during our trip I went to open the closet door and from the darkness, I hear, “I’m gonna get you,” yikes!
But please note do not take the babble ball for a long road trip. No matter where we placed the ball, it talked. But since the ball is rather quiet, we would laugh and go on about our fun.
At some point during the last few days, I realized the ball was getting tired of talking. An RV can rock and roll enough to get the ball talking even when we’re “glamping.”
As soon as we returned home I had a new ball ordered. Emily helped open it.
Emily the DIY helper
Now that I replaced her talking ball our home can return to normal. Oh, when I got the replacement ball, I realized I could have changed the batteries.
Emily still loves our socks. I walked into the closet and saw her looking for socks under the laundry hamper.
