It's always hard in these situations. My Shiloh's collar was retired in a box on my beside table for 4 years...then I let my current GSD, Echo, wear it (she still does). I always have multiple dogs, so the other dogs just kind of take over the toys, although my sheltie does have one special "love bug" that she won't let anyone else play with and so someday (hopefully a long time from now!) that toy will likely go with her to the bridge. Ditto for Echo's training dumbell: she actually hides it from the other dogs and races to get it if she thinks one of the other dogs might be heading to take it...
There are two kinds of dogs: Dogs who are German Shepherds, and dogs who WISH they were German Shepherds....
