Our toy collection is in desperate need of replacement. Some of them have been through three Greyhounds worth of chomping and flinging. Most of the squeakers and grunters have seen better days. I've browsed through Chewy and Amazon for large, squeaking/grunting plush toys.

Any other sites I should be perusing?

Chewy often has really good prices on toys, but one of the best places to check is the Dog Toy section at your local Wal-Mart. Some of the most popular toys among the hounds have come from there recently.  That's where we got Honky Pig and most recently some good fuzzy and floppy toys with squeakers.

Have to be careful re: eyes and stuffing but I’ve scored decent stuffies at Goodwill, Salvation Army, and yard sales.

Jeter says that carpal tunnel wrist braces make excellent toys and are available through any medical supply place.  However, they do not grunt and the only squeaking is from the human when she discovers her brace covered with slobber and improved with several extra holes.

Just be careful with children's toys.  The stuffing is fire retardant so if you have a dog that likes to tear out the stuffing to chew on,  make sure you are close by to take it away.
