a new favorite

Macie gets a new toy almost every weekend... she really has too many toys, but its so fun to see her with a new one we can never resist another trip to the pet store to see whats new. Although she has her old favorites, she loves every new one we buy her right away, and she will play with them for weeks before moving on to a new one.
Then from time to time she will dig around in her toy box just like a little kid, finding an older toy that she hasn't seen for awhile, and play with it all afternoon. And she'll drive you nuts bringing it to you so you'll play with her.
Thankfully she also does well playing with them on her own, pushing them back and forth across the floor.
The best ones squeak. Most of the older ones have broken squeakers.
So, no surprise that for Christmas Santa brought her two new toys, a frog and a fuzzy blue octopus. I knew as soon as I saw the octopus in a doggie "boutique", that this toy would turn out to be a favorite for a long time, and I was right.
I could tell it would last beyond the week. Its not sewn, its actually knitted so she cant pull it apart. The eyes of the octopus are knitted in, so they cant be pulled off. The squeaker is super heavy duty, so she wont pop it with her sharp teeth. And she loves it.
She rolls around with it in her paws, holding it like a baby holds a bottle. 
She carries it with her to bed each night and its the first one she grabs in the morning.
I dont mind buying toys for her when she loves them this much.
