Toys as Cancer Culprits?

We've all heard about the possible danger of "toys from China", but mainly in terms of vinyl. I read yesterday that oral cancer is the fourth leading cancer in dogs (better fact check that again, just in case). What?? In people it takes something like chewing tobacco - obvious to us, yeah.

Well what about those plushy toys for our dogs?

I tell you what, that first thing going are all my dogs plush toys! I found a website with instructions on how to make felted wool balls, so I'm going to make some of those.

I'm also going to look in to sewing some toys - yes, sew my own! They may not be as brightly cute as store-bought, but I know the dog doesn't care about that.

It may be too late to prevent the start of things in Vida, but I'll be damned if I'm going to keep putting the possible cause back in there!
