When we were getting excited to meet our puppy we bought the essentials, a leash, collar, food and water bowls, poop bags. And because we were first time puppy owners we bought a couple of toys.
Lola, mysterious puppy that she is couldn't give a damn about toys. And those *proper dog toys* are expensive. So we let her play with everyday things - and it turns out - there is nothing this dog likes more than a bucket. HOURS of entertainment.
