That's true, too: klepto pets, a whole other issue! I've had a couple in my day!
It's that retrieving that caused Tango to enjoy soft toys so much over the years. He loved to chew on them, but he never damaged a toy. (I can't say the same for my spatula that time, though!) He's got a retriever's soft mouth, which, after so many power chewers has been quite novel!
I'm glad that Chance is now enjoying his ring!
Does he like to bathe when on his chain? I used to mist some of mine...the lories and amazons, while they were hanging on their chain. They would open their wings and really enjoyed it! A bit on the messy side, but...! :-)
Love All Life, Thank You For Posting! :)
