Have you ever lost your favourite toy? Whether under the bed,  behind the sofa, or in the bushes in the garden? Well, that’s what happened to me. This is a picture of my blue ball from October 2012.

I’m not a huge fan of balls unless they squeak, which this one did when I first got it. I loved chomping on it over and over again.  Anyway, it went missing for ages and I thought it was gone forever. But then the other week it reappeared from whatever alternate dimension it had got lost in. And since then I’ve been playing with it constantly. It doesn’t squeak and it’s more ‘hole’ than whole lol. But it’s great fun to chew on, and I love it when mummy or daddy chase me for it:-)


Did you ever notice that discovering old toys is almost like getting a new one? That’s how it is for me anyway. I hope it doesn’t get lost again anytime soon.

Have you ever lost and then found one of your toys?

  1. Oh Misaki…I know what you mean about finding a lost toy! When I discover some long lost Bo-Bo it’s like Christmas morning all over again! That happened a lot at my Grandma’s house…but somehow I think Grandma may be hiding some of my fav Bo-Bos…easpecially when I hear her say “enough with the squeaker Dante”…bark bark bark! Have loads of fun with your blue ball…whole…half…whatever, just enjoy!

  2. We so agree. Nothing like finding old toys. I bet those across the pond will be doing some of that now the snow is melting. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    So glad you found your toy without having to issue an APB (Alaskan Pup Bulletin). Prince is always so happy when he finds a toy that has been missing for awhile!

    Glad you were reunited with your toy! But who chewed a hole in it?

  5. New toy! Yay! OLD new toys are definitely as much fun as NEW new toys! Especially if you have a short memory (or a tiny brain), like me!

    Love and licks,

  6. My Mom does the old trick of hiding some of my toys in the closet for a few months then bringing them out again – just like getting a NEW toy! I’m glad you found your blue ball though……since it was your favorite!

    Hugs, Sam

  7. Hooray for recovered old toys.

  8. Hiya Misaki, lovely to see you after so long 🙂 Re toys. I just pretend disinterest in found toys until I know the Staff isn’t looking!! 😉 xx

    These purr things here tend to hide *my* toys all of the time. Go figure huh? And they know which ones are *my* toys because for some reason they all look like piggies. XOXO – Bacon

  10. I haven’t lost a toy for awhile now but I am ALWAYS losing my glasses!

    Misaki we have all our toys in the Yukky dip bag…BOL..but we haz found toys from whatever poochie lived here before…they smell funny paw pats Forrest xx

  12. I hate when I lose a good toy, Misaki but you are so right…when you find it, it is fantastic! So glad you found your ball and are having a blast playing with it again. Paws crossed it sticks around this time.

    I’ve lost lots of toys, but I suspect it was my family’s fault because I’d torn them up and was eating the stuffing. I did once actually lose a toy but found it underneath a chair when my family moved the chair to bring the Christmas tree in. Oh boy, was I ever happy!

  14. I sometimes discover old toys for new and that’s the same fun :o) I lost Rizzo last summer and I found him in the base of my bed as we worked in the bedroom… I wonder what he did there…

    Thank goodness you found it. Recently it came to my attention what I thought was lost was actually taken by my mom. She said I had too many toys so she puts some away.
    Trust me she will pay for this.
    Hugs madi your bfff

    With three of us, there’s never a lost toy. One might get into an inaccessible spot, but it’s not actually “lost”

  17. We keep losing ping pong balls and not finding them any ideas??? 🙂

  18. p.m.terrell says:

    We do that all the time! Sometimes when our toys are found again, they’re even more fun to play with. Maybe they have a weird smell to them or they taste funny. Sometimes they’ve been buried in the back yard for months! Sometimes they’ve been under the couch or the bed or they went into an alternate universe. Happy playtime, Misaki! Love from Simone the collie and Eddie and Lucy the JRs.

  19. It’s like receiving a new toy all over again. Soooo exciting. wag wag

  21. That is absolutely true – old toys when not played with for awhile become new again. Reminds me of the Velveteen Rabbit story…

  22. Emmadog says:

    We are more likely to find a long lost cat toy, but whatever we find, it is always a great reunion!

  23. Whew, that’s a relief.

  24. How exciting!! I know when Rooney looses his toy I usually find him with his face shoved under the couch and barking lol

    Misaki, my three monster constantly lose their toys in the bottom of the basket where they are too lazy to look for them. Every now and then I go and mix it up a bit and they have a big reunion with all the toys they had forgotten about!
    Hugs, Carrie (Myfie, Ellie and Millie) x

  26. glad you found your toy Misaki! My fave is my red, white and blue ball, Mom and Dad make sure it is ALWAYS around! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  27. That is totally how it is for the little human baby too. Shiner’s toy was stuck behind the couch last week, but she was sure to let me know it was back there so I could get it out.

  28. We tend to “lose” balls under the couch. As in, “Oh dear, Mom! I accidently rolled the ball under the couch and need help getting it out. Gee, thanks. Now that it’s out, can you throw it please?” Followed two minutes later by, ” Oh dear! It happened again. What a coincidence.”

    Tucker can play this game for hours.

    Misaki – you look very happy to have found your ball. We wish we could find a lost toy, but Mom says our toys only last about 5 minutes and then they are tossed, and lost forever:( Give us a ball and we rip it up so fast, and sometimes we even try to eat the pieces – that really gets Mom moving:)

    Grady has a “snowball”. He’s so attached to it I bought a second one in case it ever goes missing.

    Hey Misaki

    So happy you found your toy buddy! 🙂 I have a big box for my toys and things get lost in the bottom, so sometimes I go on a search in the box to see what I can find in the corner, it’s like a new toy! 🙂

    I hope you’re having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂
