I was watching something the other day, I can't remember what it was and it's driving me nuts! I don't remember if it was a video, commercial, or various training show! ARGH! Anyway, I heard them say something about squeaker toys imitating the cries of "prey" when they are caught and screaming. This encourages aggression in high prey drive dogs or some such I never really gave it much thought before, but I know Orson ADORES his squeaky toys! He has never harmed another living creature (except a mole he brought in once), not even Marty the parrot when he's out walking/flying around. I do believe he would kill a squirrel if he could catch them in the backyard, but they are quick to scurry up the tree or over the fence. Not sure about cats, he's never really had the chance, and he does have DA, but am I creating a "would be" killer of small animals by suppling these squeaky toys that he loves?
