Buddy Squeaks His Post

Hey, Buddy here with today's post.  Finally.  We've been wanting to do this for a couple weeks but Jan -  Well, let's just say this is Jan's fault.  Again. 

Oh, good.  We received a package in the mail from Baby Patches.  Jan opened it and it squeaked.  Squeaks are always welcome around here.  Sam and I are the Squeaker Kings.  

 See, I already have it singing.  Cyndi came over to see what Sam and I are up to.  

Percy came over to see what all the noise is.  It's a gecko and it's got 4 large squeakers in the body and they're supposed to keep on squeaking even after we tug, bully and puncture the toy.  As if we would ever!

Okay, so Sam and I have chewed a few squeaky toys into rags.  But I was not looking for the puppy trapped inside when I did.  And rumors that I talk back to squeaky toys is greatly exaggerated.  Maybe somewhat exaggerated.  Okay, the rumors are almost true.

Jan took our squeaker away so Merci could have a turn.  (Ignore the egg crate pieces on the carpet and the holes in the bed.  Buddy dug holes in it and spread egg crate all around the living room for Jan to pick up.) 

Here I am trying to take it away from Jan.  She likes to play with the squeaker too.

Jan had some video of us chasing the toy in the pen outside, but she deleted it .  Something about looking ridiculous with the camera panning in every direction every time she bent over to pick up the toy to throw.  (We never look ridiculous in a video so we'll give you one guess who did.)

We love the multiple squeakers.  I love to poke them hard with my foot or use my teeth to make them talk .. uh, squeak.  Sam does too.  And we love it when Jan squeaks the gecko and throws it for us.  We chase it and mock fight over which of us gets to poke the squeakers. 

The drawback to these is that the toys are not stuffed and we couldn't pick them up by the head or tail.  (The tail has a nice rattle, by the way.)  And we couldn't get a grip to pick them up around the squeakers either.  We found this a drawback, since we could chase them but not fetch them when Jan would try to play with us.  Some stuffing for our big jaws to latch onto would be welcome.  (Hint, hint.)

The toy is our size - large.  Merci is a small dog so this was too large for her but the gecko comes in two sizes.  This is the larger 4 squeaker size. You can read more about the gecko dog toy in Baby Patches' store.

This is our first product review for Baby Patches' Tester Team. We were supplied with a gecko to test but we were not paid. This is our personal experience with the product.
