Tube vs Stuffie

Hi everypuppy and everycat!  It's me - Ammy!  Many of our friends like Meeshka, Sitka & CM, and Tubey himself (and apparently the Beagles Mom grew up with), find cardboard tubes quite entertaining.  You know - like the ones inside a roll of paper towels or toilet paper?  Those.  We've never really gotten into the whole "paper thing", but Mom gave me one the other day to see if I'd like to play with it.

"What am I supposed to do with this?"

No offense, but I didn't really get it. Oh, it's not like I didn't feel like playing ... it's just not my thing.

I sent Mom a mind-meld message, letting her know what I'd really like to play with.

"Oooh, a stuffie!"

Yes! I know what to do with a stuffie!

I made quick work of this one.  Mom was a bit surprised, as this toy has been with me for a number of years.  It was time, though.

"Now that was fun!"

I know we have another one of those cool camo footballs stashed away with our other toys somewhere.

"Let's go play with that one, too!"

Mom thought I had played with stuffies enough for one day.

"My work here is done then!"

It was great fun! I highly recommend de-stuffing over shredding tubes.



  1. As long as it is destructive, we are in.

  2. Yeah, we've never quite understood the cardboard thing ourselves - aren't those for hamsters or something? If you can't de-stuff it, what's the point?

  3. ha ha ha, love the facial expresssion, like "what are stuffies for except to de-stuff!"

  4. I like to destroy cardboard tubes and stuffies! :)


  5. Monty agrees 100%! Although, he would like to point out that if all of your stuffies have been de-stuffed, than a tube makes excellent shredding!


  6. Ah hmmm, if you're not using that tube, I'll take it!

  7. Who is responsible for that mess? BOL

  8. Great job Ammy! I love to do that to some of my toys but mom doesn't understand me at all. She just doesn't get it!! Lots of love, Holly

  9. Destuffing stuffies is SO much fun!

  10. It looks like you have snow at your house, Ammy! Great job destuffing!

    Love ya lots

  11. I love destuffing things! But, I'm kind of a fan of shredding too. Lets do both!!!

  12. Ammy!
    Sure it was much better to de-stuff that toy than playing with the tube!
    Good job!
    Happy saturday!
    Kisses and hugs

  13. I'd much rather play with a stuffie than some useless piece of cardboard too, Ammy!


  14. ahem... you EAT the cardboard tube. Its much easier to pass than stuffie stuff... trust me, I know.


  15. I never really get the cardboard thing too..De-stuffing sure looks more fun, especially the way you do it! It looks like it's snowing!!


  16. Ammy, our Bandit loves those tubes, but the rest of the Sibes just stare at her and don't really get it either! They much prefer to unstuff the stuffed toys as well! PS - you did a great job de-stuffing, by the way! ;-)

  17. Ack.. a stuffy crime scene : )

    I just gotta say .. you're one beautiful pup!! XOXO

  18. Ammy I do that with all my stuffies...I have to fix them cuz they squeek so badly...you look like you really enjoyed that..my mom said my old doggie was petrified of the wrapping paper rolls cuz her old owner used to scare her with them...so mom doesn play with them around me...cuz she doesnt want to scare me...we have lots ofsnow..you should stop by...

  19. Well, I don't understand the destuffing myself. Why disrespect your toys? So there you go. At least you have a supply of them to practice your disemboweling techniques on.


  20. I'm not a big de-stuffer, but I loves me a christmas paper wrapping paper tube, a parpertowel tube, or even a plastic bottle!

  21. I'm with woo, Ammy. toys are great fun, then one day they call to woo to come destuff them!

  22. Hi Ammy!

    De-stuffing stuffies and deflating squeakies are the fave past times of Mocha and Wai-Max. Only the squeakies of Fudgie are intact. You love your smiling photo. Mocha wanted to throw in another stuffie for you to de-stuff just so she won't get another scolding from mom whenever she does that here. Waaaaah

  23. But paper towel tubes are AWESOME!!!! That's the only thing I will sneak away and steal if one happens to miss the trash can. I know better than to take anything else, but those are fair game.


  24. I'm with you when it comes to stuffies! I love to pull out all the stuffing! I have no clue what to do with the tubes, but Bali loves to pull them out of the trash. :)
