|Message:||Yep, Thats the way it was with our rescue nanday Diego. He ignored his toys. Then one day we got him just the right swing with wooden blocks all the way around the top. From there he went nuts. Now he is a beaver and I am buying wooden and leather toys for him every month.
Those of you with nandays that don't touch toys, don't stop trying. Someday you will find just the right thing to spark an interest. A happy nanday loves to play.
