Bosco will not fetch at all. However, if something squeeks, he is fascinated and will make it squeek again and again and again. I do have two other dogs (japanese chin) and they all play with each other. Favorite game is "run after Bosco." Chins are known for racing around the house for no reason whatsoever. Bosco joins right in on that game too. I think he thinks he is a chin!

Kookie loves toys, soft toys are off limits now as he kills them in minutes eating fabric and toy stuffing so I got him nyla bone type chews and logs which he loves. He also loves playing with treat toys, figuring out how to get the treats out keeps him amused for ages.

Remy's favorite toy is the laser, which we originally got for our cat, who had passed away last year. He loves it soooo sooo much he will bark at the little box where we keep it when he wants to play, which seems like it is anytime he is awake. He also likes balls and other squeaky toys but my other dog is a toy destroyer so poor Remy is stuck with hard plastic or tough rubbery toys that are not as mush fun to chew.

My mother has two rescued Japanese Chin. One female who was a caged abused dog and the male who was a "untrainable" puppy. Both are well behaved now that they are in my parents home. The female is a very calm girl who loves to wedge herself between you and the arm of the chair you are sitting in. She gets a wild hair every few nights and runs around the house frantic and grabs her toy and will play fetch with herself. A lot of funny sounding grunting comes from her(she was devocalized by the abusive previous owners). Wide open mouth almost in a smile when she gets like this. The male Chin just gets wild every time I come home to visit. He is known for the Chin Spin.

Tails has only ever really liked plush or soft toys. He seems to most like toys that look like animals.. ie a teddy of a sheep/pig etc. And has been the same way ever since he arrived at 8 weeks. He doesn't care for anything rubber and isn't that fussed about balls. My mom has a collection of vintage teddy bears and whenever we go there he keeps appearing with teddys in his mouth before going off to hunt for new ones!

Chin and Cavs are very compatible. The Chins are known for the spinning when happy and they making a funny "woo-woo" sound when happy. Mine race around the house at least twice a day -- its a frenzied run that lasts for all of 5 minutes, but everyone participates! That's great that your Mom was able to rescue them. Chins are very sweet and funny dogs. I would say they are more independent and stubborn than Cav's. They also shed alot!!

I agree about the independence and the stubborness. They can be very loving but on their own terms.

Cavaliers......Tommy Tuppence 2000-2012 and a half share of Faith.
Japanese Chins.... Dandy, Benny, Bridgette and Hana.

I laughed when I read your line, "Sorry Bridgette, I didn't not now it was yours." Bosco, our CKC is about 20 lbs, and my smaller chin, Sadie is 6 lbs. Bosco treats Sadie the same way. He backs away apologetically! Such a gentleman! Sadie needs only to look at Bosco to get him to drop something or even to get out of her bed. I guess Bosco does not realize he is bigger and could get his way if he wanted. I love both breeds, but for loyalty and "I'll do anythign for you" attitude, I vote for Bosco!

Luke loves to fetch, and will fetch until he can't fetch anymore. There are a few other toys he likes sometimes. Sometimes he'll tug, but not all the time. Most of the time, he just likes all toys to be thrown. He loves squeaky balls too.

My younger dog likes to get balls, but runs straight pass you when he brings it back, my older dog use to do the same. Ollie the younger one has a plastic squeaky pig that he likes to shake and run round with when life is not going his way, it`s really funny to watch.
and my two special boys Jasper age 13 and Ollie age 3.
