When pups are still young, everything is new to them – and thus, everything is a possible toy for them to play with! It doesn’t matter how mundane or boring it is to humans. Anything that’s new to a puppy is automatically fun and interesting!
For us humans, a slipper sock is something we wear, but for Robin the dachshund puppy, it might as well be a chew toy! The pup won’t let anyone else touch it or take it away from him as he gnaws on it and shakes it back and forth, even though it’s practically as big as he is. He burrows himself into it, nibbles on it, and scratches it to his heart’s content.
When Mom tries to pull the sock away from behind the camera, the pup comes running back to grab onto it and make sure it’s safely in his possession. To make doubly sure, he takes off running, dragging the sock with him to safety! He’s one protective pup!
