Monday Mischief: The Not So Indestructible Kong

I'm joining Monday Mischief!
First off let me tell you, I was never much of a chewer when I was a puppy. A princess has better things to do with her time (like commanding her loyal servant subject to carry her tiny self to the one spot in the yard that was suitable for me) than chew on random objects. BUT, I have always loved my little red Kong toy, even though Mom's been hard pressed to find stuff to put in it as I hate PB. I'm not a big chewer, but I'm a strong chewer.
Last night Mom gave me my Kong and she hears this awful riiiiipppp sound and a happily munching Doxie. I chewed off the top part of my so called indestructible Kong!
Heehee it was the only way I could get the treat out! I guess I get the black Kong now.

The Mischievous Dachshund Nola
Note from Dachshund Mommy: I've had Mastiffs who loved Kongs and couldn't leave a mark on them, yet tiny Teckel destroys hers!
The very smug ME


  1. I like Kong toys. Mom puts peanut butter in them sometimes.

  2. I destroyed my red kong too!! Mom bought me the black one for "powerful chewers" & it has lasted for about 2 years now. :)

  3. Hey Nola!
    Wow, great job killing that toy! You're a powerful girl fur sure and I bet the next one will be a little tougher. Killing a kong is even better than unstuffing a stuffie! BOL.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  4. Gosh. You are a strong chewer, Nola!
    Mommy brought a red Kong home once but I refused to touch it so she returned it. I'm not a fan of rubber toys but I love my stuffed toys! Especially the ones that squeek.
    Love, Whisky

  5. Jaws of steel Nola! Tell Mom to try yogurt or cottage cheese and then freeze them. She can put some veggie pieces in first to plug the hole.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  6. Hawwooo Nola! That's pretty amazing there girl! Them's some pretty nice chompers woo have! Play bows,

  7. Holy cow Nola! Those are some pretty strong teeth you've got there!

  8. WOWZERS! I don't think I can even do that! I am impressed, my friend!

  9. One should NEVERS under estimate a doxie.


  10. Hahaha! Congrats on destroying your very first Kong! They are definitely not as indestructable as they appear. My dog is now on her eighth or ninth black Kong in two and a half years. But that's okay. As long as she loves them, we will keep buying more!

  11. Well done, and everything.

  12. Ah..... The look of contentment! Great job Nola for proving the Kong Company wrong... Have you ever tried the Kong liver paste? We love it!

    excellent! i got a black kong too, and am both a big and strong chewer. it was taken away though, b/c i started rolling it under the couches and digging at the bottoms of the couches to get to it! hee-hee! gotta keep mom and dad on their toes!

  14. Oh my goodness Nola! Thats some nashers you got there1


  15. Way to GOOOOOOOOOO Girrrrrrl. THAT is a super job!!!

  16. OMD Nola!! Those are some strong teeth you have!!!! Great job!


  17. Oh my word Nola. Razor blade teeths, BOL
    Benny & Lily

  18. Bruhaahaahaa! Well done Nola. You may have to become the chew tester for Kong.

    Sometimes we get our Kongs filled with kibble with a cheese plug at the big end. We love it.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  19. I love my Kong, just the thought of something happening to it makes me sad. You have some really sharp teeth Nola!

  20. Nola!
    My hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon bows to your chewing abilitiesd! She too has a red kong that has so far avoided the same fate!
    Yous rocks!

  21. Wow, Nola you had a great job! your toys looks great and you really enjoy playing it right.

  22. Cleo ate hers too, and we bought her the extra large Kong!

  23. That's scary! Nola must keep her teeth sharp!

    Our Cracker Lab, R, manages to do that over a long time with a red kong. So, he has graduated to the black ones. Of course, life can't be simple, so we discovered that K is allergic to the black rubber. Now, they each have their own stash of kongs. We stuff 'em with canned dog food.

    The photo of Nola is priceless. I can almost hear her saying "Gotcha!".

  24. OMD! I have the same one and I still haven't broken it! Hehe! :)


  25. Ruh roh more kong.

    Your pal, Pip

  26. hey Nola,

    Or should I call you "Jaws of Steel Nola"!!! I am furry impressed by your mischief! And your powerful jaws! I guess nothing gets between you and your treats! BOL!


  27. Hey Nola, just tell her, to let it be a lesson to her, DONT mess with Nola!!! ;-)

    JAzzi and addy

  28. oooh nola the destroyer dog, he he he xxx

  29. Noooooooooooo!!!! Not the Kong!!! I've always wanted to have a Kong! That's some strong jaw you have there Nola!

  30. My ownersgot me a kong, but it was too big for me to chew on. So then they got me a tiny kong, and I ignored it. i only wanted to play with the kong bigger than my head.
    p.s I heard that Darth Vader is luring peoplr (and creatures) to the dark side with cookies, too!

  31. Yet another thing you and Glacier have in common. You two are a match made in Heaven. Glacier tore the top off of his black Kong in less than 20 more Kongs for Glacier. LOL You are obviously more impressive though as you are quite tiny. :)

  32. OMD, Nola - you must have teeth of steel :)

  33. We are very impressed! Both of my boxers have spent countless hours trying to tear a Kong apart with very little successes! You must have been very determined!

  34. I am MOST Impressed, Nola! Me and Brudder Ranger luvs our Kongs, too, but mom had to get us the black ones. They last a lOT longer. We still haven't torn one of those up yet.

    Wiggles & Wags,

  35. wow. you are a very strong chewer. bol. can't say I've accomplished the feat of chewing a piece off a Kong.

  36. Wow - you showed that Kong who's boss!
