. . . do you find when you vacuum?* Let's see, this morning I found 7 tennis balls, two kongs, and two nylabones -- all under various pieces of furniture -- and this was just the family room/kitchen area and I only have one lab!* So, what have you found that your lab has left you when you vacuum?
luckily i have a tiny place so hard for things to get lost for too long - but i ALWAYS find kongs under the bed or under furniture. sometimes it doesn't last for too long though because i'll notice Bear will disappear for a while - i'll find him with his head under the bed whining (apparently waiting for me to retrieve the missing kong b/c he can't fit under the bed).
I'm very lucky the first "trick" Koko learned was "this place is a mess!" once that is said Koko will pick up everything on the floor (even the kids toys) and put it all in a basket at the end of the hall! The basket is where we keep her toys. We think she learned this from me yelling at the kids! I don't know how she learned but it gtes her a treat every time!
I've posted this picture before, but this is very typical of what I find under my hutch every day. Abby has a ball fetish!

Mizz Pat that does not...I repeat does not look anything like what I find

It's a twin to what my project table look like. Well a fraternal twin, I have carpet not hard wood (jealous sigh)
Usually a half chewed rawhide, a stuffed cow, pig and hedgehog is what the Dyson sees every time it makes it's rounds!!! We have a "no balls in the house" rule here, because they roll under the couch and then Cooper has a fit if he can't get them....and he can never reach them......
