Therapy Dog Brings New Toy to Bed Each Night

By: Nathan Grant

Dogs, much like kids, love their toys. Mojito, a three-year-old therapy dog, has a passion for her toys that is unmatched.

For the last 1.5 years, Mojito has been bringing a toy to bed with her every night. Each night, she carries a different toy up the stairs. Mojito is very specific!

“She does it when she has to go to bed early with me, almost like she needs a toy to keep her entertained,” her owner, Kim Downie, said. “She is very specific about what she chooses to take to bed. She will search the house and empty her toy boxes until she finds whatever one she is looking for.”

Every time they go to the store, Mojito selects a new toy. She also gets toys from BarkBox every month!

Playtime never ends for Mojito – sometimes she even lets the cat in on the fun too.

As soon as Mojito knows it is bedtime, she grabs one toy…

Every toy she owns has a chance to spend the night with her.

Rather than bringing the toys back downstairs each day, she hoards the toys upstairs until she thinks it’s time to bring them down again.

If you try to bring the toys downstairs too soon, she will bring them right back up!
