Isaac's ickle pickle has been lost for a while now. I don't know how it is possible to lose a toy that size in my tiny apartment but I have searched everywhere and cannot find it. So I finally got him a new one. I had to order it online because I went to Petco and apparently they no longer carry them.
This evening, I opened the package with the ickle pickle in it. Isaac was lying on the floor, gnawing on his hollow stick toy with a chunk of hotdog inside. When he saw the pickle, he dropped the stick and came over to get the pickle.
I knew he loved his pickle but I certainly never thought he'd choose a pickle without any treats in it over a stick with a hotdog in it. After chewing on it for a few minutes, just to get it nice and slobbery for me, I guess, he gave it to me to put some treats in it.
I love how happy he is to have a pickle again. I wish I'd gotten him a new one sooner, though. If I'd known it would make him this happy, I would have.
