Nylabone Exchange



For her birthday, Alex got an off white Nylabone.


Walter’s parents brought a brand new white Nylabone.  I gave Alex her off white Nylabone and the white one to Walter, but they both looked at their respective bones, and then went for the one that did not belong to them.  Go figure!


Walter seemed delighted with Alex’s Nylabone so I just let them be.  Kids!  When you give your dog(s) anything to chew on make sure you are there to supervise that activity.

  1. It’s so funny how they do this, Marcela! Skye and Charlie constantly swap their antler chews! 🙂

      Kids! And you know what, they usually want the same thing at the same time:)

  2. Hello Marcela! I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award at my blog, thanks for inspiring me and making my day with your wonderful stories and pictures 🙂 Feel free to read about it and grab the badge at http://smellybeagle.wordpress.com/2013/05/12/the-sunshine-award/
    Have a nice day! *beagle kisses*

  3. We have two labs…brothers who act like brothers. lol Giving them each identical bones still ends in them wanting each other’s bones, much like my kids with identical toys, etc. 😉

      Wow! So even in our species, humans, that happens. I am just glad Alex and Walter both have a really good temperament.

    Isn’t that just typically the way it goes? When I feed the cats and dog, if I don’t watch carefully the dog eats the cat food and the cats fight over the dog food…..go figure!

    1. Marcela says:

      Wow! Alex, while visiting my cousin, preferred the cat’s food rather than her own. I agree, go figure:)

  5. Yes, no one gets chew bones in our home unless I can watch all three of them….

  6. Oh goodness…My girl has that same white Nylabone and does she ever love to tease her big sister with it! I swear Bella only wants it after Xeva has tried to make herself as obnoxious as possible by shoving it in Bella’s face…So true though, they always seem to prefer the other one’s toy over the one they have!

      Wow! Alex is an only “child” and she does not taunt the dogs that stay with us, but rather the 2 humans she lives with. She grabs her nylabone and parades with it all over the house, then she proceeds to come to us taunting us with it and when we try to get it she walks away:) What a tease. I am pretty sure that if we had two dogs or more she’d do the same things your doggies do to each other:) Kids!

      1. Haha yes that sounds very familiar…My girl is only just a year and a half, so she is still very much in the puppy/teenage mindset. Bella, on the other hand, is the grouchy older sister at 9 years and Xeva doesn’t understand why her big sister won’t play with her all the time 🙂 Gotta love those fur babies!

      2. Marcela says:

        Totally agree. Yes, Alex, also does not want to play all the time, but just like your Bella my girl just turned 11 last week so I do get it. Even we humans once we get older are grouchy, don’t you think?

  7. They really are almost human!

    1. Marcela says:

      That’s what Alex keeps telling me:)

  8. Will and Eko says:

    Classic “I want what I don’t have” dog syndrome. I swear Eko only wants to play with certain toys if another dog has it.
