Tidying Up: Ruh-Roh Day 10

So after yesterday's kitchen debacle, I decided to outsource my KONMARIng, and focus on the big brown dog. He was very enthused.

So we dumped all of his toys out. These were just the ones on the first floor of the house. Yes, the big brown dog is spoiled so he has a toy box on every level. When you don't have children, this is what you do.
 Then the big brown dog began to look for what brought him joy....ha ha! (If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell ya!)

 He has some favorites...
Chewed Up Buzzard
No Face Bear
Armless Camo Dog
All of which brought the big brown dog joy at some point, but perhaps needed to not be kept in his toy chest any longer.
 His favorite three though had to stay:
Catarona Extra, Killer Bite, and Mountain Drool
These three no longer squeak, labels are bare, and they have tears in the plastic, but he loves them to death.
Here is the end result:
Bottom Floor-Toys that won't damage
anything when thrown
Middle Floor-His Favs
Top Floor-Holiday Toys
Having a retriever in the house, he must always greet us with a toy in his mouth. It could be when we come home at night, when he comes down from one floor to another, at any point he must find a toy and present it to you. Not necessarily give it up, but at least show you he has it.  And what did he "give away"?
Can I play with my toys now?
Needless to say, he is now asleep on the couch, exhausted from his day of "tidying up"!

Bag Count:
Me: 7  plus 2 boxes of books and 1 small box of jewelry and 2 boxes of kitchen stuff.
My Guy: 2 bags
Trash Guy: 6 bags
Big Brown Dog: 1/2 a bag


  1. Aww, lOVE big dogs. Ours loved the huge Nylabone smeared with peanut butter. Kept him happily chewing.

    1. We have a few Nylabones, Which one do you use with peanut butter? Is it hollow inside?

  2. My little man, a Westie, has his own toy box that he loves to tip over and dig through for his favs. Glad to see I am not the only spoiler out there!!
