Watch this adorable Petsmart commercial. I don’t know if it’s still in rotation, but when it was on quite often, I would stop everything to watch it.

The other day when the boys and I were at Walgreens, we found a blue dog just like the pink one in the commercial. Wouldn’t it be so cute if Roxie became attached to Bobo and carried him around everywhere? The chances of that happening were quite slim though, knowing her history. She’s never met a stuffed toy that lasted longer than 10 minutes, except for the flying monkeys that she plays with on a regular basis. Although we knew what the blue dog’s fate would be, I spent the $3 anyway.

First, she whisked him away to her secret hiding place:

After showing her that the dog had some squeaky talent, she once again took him to her lair, and then briefly abandoned him under the table in favor for a quick (but failed) attempt at begging some food off of Jim in the kitchen:

Finally trusting us enough (well, maybe only a little), she chewed on him ever-so-gently on the living room rug while we squeaked him…and then ran off with him:

And then, finally, it was curtains for Bobo. First she worked on ripping his heart out, through his fur. Eventually she got the squeaker out and all of Bobo’s pieces had to be thrown in the trash. I can only show you part of the carnage, due to its graphic nature:
