I'll stand with Dekka on this . . . Sarama is a natural toy destroyer. Or more correctly, a natural toy surgeon, because she will stop at nothing to get that squeaker out. Once I determined that she does not swallow stuff from the toys, I simply decided that she would only have stuffies on occasion, when I had spare cash. She LOVES dismantling the toys, and if she can't do that, she's not interested. (Except, oddly, in a very small number of toys that were given to her by our trainer. She has desqueaked them, but she plays with them anyway and won't let Docket near them. She even plays with the rubber one and she hates rubber toys. I don't offer an explaination for this, except that she seems recognize that those were awards from a very tough teacher for very hard work)

If I don't want stuffing all over the place, or are feeling poor, I give her something like a bone to amuse herself with, or throw a ball for her. But she generally has no interest in playing (by herself) with something she can't dismantle. When I've tried to teach her not to do that, she didn't . . . but she didn't play with the toy either.
