What is ALDO?

Well, a lot of you have questioned about the ALDO bag I got a hold of from my last post - The chickenDALE (part 3).

Why was mum frantic? What's the big deal about ALDO??

Well the truth is, there IS NO big deal!!! It is just a store that sells ridiculously over priced, albeit durable chew toys. To see the store catalogue, please visit their website:


It is a store that hoomans, especially the female kind like to waste their money at. I personally don't understand why they would want to buy such expensive chew toys when the much cheaper Kong or other squeakies would do just fine.

Here are a few samples of the chewies mum got from ALDO:

They, of course, have all retired from their
original purposes...... and I had NOTHING to do with their retirement.... REALLY!!! It was that Bouvier who stayed with us you know, it was him.. NOT me! REALLY!

I was a little disappointed when I didn't find anything "wooden" or "leathery" in the ALDO bag on Friday night. All I found was this:

SIGH..... Oh well, better luck next time.....

Haa Sunshade, those are really very pricy chewies. Pity the last one can't be chew. :)

hey sunshade,

*ahem* with your BIG MOUTH, how can the destruction can be so minor? those look like MY job instead of yours!

wet wet licks


Toby said...

Sunshade... wow, you really like those chew toys, don't you? When I was a puppy, I chewed up a toy called "Nine Wests"... Mommy says they were brand new too... I'm gonna see if mommy has any Aldo toys for me to chew..heheh. I see a few toys from :Stephane de Raucourt". Have you tried those before?


Sunshade said...


Boo, yes those are tiny chew marks, and they came from the Bouvier because he is a delicate chewer. You are right, it it were me, the whole shoe would be gone!!! SEE, it WASN'T me.

Toby: were Nine West a good chew?? I have seen those around somewhere, maybe I'll go dig them out. Oh, and I have heard of "Stephane de Raucourt", but can't seem to find any home........


Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Miss Sunshade,
What would your mom buy those round metal things for? Well, maybe you can use them to clean between your teeth (hehehe).

Maybe your mom can take those shoes in for repair.

Hi Sunshade,
I haven't tried any ALDOs or Nine Wests yet.. although looking at the pics, ALDOs seems to look good!! My favourite chews are Algorithm textbooks, Judith McNaught novels and 50 dollar bills, Hello Kitty bedroom slippers, stinky socks..

Nine West are pretty good. I got one of those when MaMa came back from her pawty, I mean party.

I totally believe that you did NOT chew those Aldo chewies! However, in the future perhaps you can get your own doofus face to blame such things on. Then you can have full time chewing with none of the hassle of waiting on a house guest to blame it on!

Hi Miss Sunshade, I just like chewing on the old Scotch Pancake you know! But I have been known to partake of the odd tasty shoe which has been left around. The newer, the better I always find! love and licks Marv x

Chelsea said...

I don't care much for those chew toys at all. Mama's got tons of em. They just don't appeal to me.

Maybe cuz they are stinky.


Isabella said...

Of course you didn't chew those human paw coverers! Those look like Bouvier teeth marks to me, oh yes they do! Those metal things are called earrings- Linda has a pair just like them. I used to try to grab them with my teeth when I was a puppy. I have been begging to get my ears pierced but Linda won't let me. I think I would look just gorgeous with dangly earrings. You would too, Sunshade.

Miss Sunshade,
Rusty and Smoky want you to know that they think you are pretty cute yourself. Please forgive their mommy for not responding sooner, but she has had too many things to do, in addition to rubbing their bellies and giving out treats.
Also, you are their kind of gal, one who likes to chew expensive things. Not limiting yourself to cheap things like socks. Rusty and Smoky think that you are one classy lady!

I still prefer my rugs as chew toys... oops... I mean.. erm.. like sunshade, I don't have the bad habit of chewing stuff. erm... yeah...

Toby said...

Oops, sorry Sunshade. Um, yah, I know it wasn't you!

I think you and Isabella should get your ears pierced. Didn't I read that one of yours already is? Keep an eye on those Aldo bags - maybe there will be something better in there next time.

Simba and Jazzi said...

What are those things in the bag? Two shiny doggies collars? I don't think you chewed those things. But then I didn't kill mini me.

Deb said...

Now if those Aldo's had squeakies in them I'd be all over them too! You sure have lots of chew toys to pick from, hee, hee! Tell your mom to keep shopping!

Your pal,

Murphey said...

We don't have an ALDOS, but we do have a Foley's and I get the same type fabuloud chew toys from there. They look remarkably like you chew toys! Funny, my lady never seems as happy as I am about me chewing on them.

We have so many of those paired up toys around here I don't bother with them. What does a guy care about fashion anyway?

I'm with you, I NEVER chew my human's things!

Toby said...

Sunshade, my Mommy wants to know what your Mommy does with the shoes that are all chewed up??


Deanna said...

I trained my mom to put the expensive chewies in the closet. It only took one time for her to learn, but she is especially gifted!

Charlie said...

Wow, I bet that Bouvier got in big trouble, huh?!
