The perfect doggie gift?
 
My cousin's birthday is coming up. I've sent her flowers, chocolates, gifts... This year, I'd like to send her some stuff for her kids - the two wheatens and golden doodle who run her house.

Any particular thoughts or suggestions? I've gotten pig ears before but the dogs here love everything... Well, except buckwheat pancakes and I wasn't going to send those anyway. :laughing:

Skineeeez....or a bad CUZ! :laughing: most doggies love them! and maybe some bandanas for them??

CsqU4r3d August 11th, 2010 07:39 PM

Another vote for the Bad Cuz ...Chum highly recommends them..:evil:

rainbow August 11th, 2010 07:48 PM

Another vote for the Skinneez or Cuz ......both fairly indestructible too. :thumbs up

Pig ears or rawhide are not a favourite of mine due to the possible salmonella contamination :yuck: and also choking hazard or blockage if they happen to swallow pieces. :eek:

Or, if you want something edible how about a good quality brand of dog cookies that would be available at your local pet store. :)

A Cuz (medium sized and orange) gets my vote :thumbs up...one for each of them. And some ear plugs for your cousin :D.

rjesak August 12th, 2010 03:38 PM

I have to say, there's something pretty inherently winning about sending my cousin a bad cuz for her birthday!!! :laughing: LMAO

Uhhh, I see these come in sizes... Any recommendations? I don't really know what size her dogs are. Maybe just go for the Medium?

Frenchy August 12th, 2010 03:52 PM

Another vote for the Bad Cuz :D I guess medium would be ok ...

as LP mentioned , try to get the orange one. Strange but , dogs seem to prefer that one , I know , weird , but true ! :shrug:

CsqU4r3d August 12th, 2010 04:00 PM

Odd indeed my chum has the orange one and likes it better than the green one that floated downriver!! :laughing:

That's because orange & red are more easily distinguished by animals that only see in black and white. Greens and blues just fade into the background.

As for the gifts, how about some of those cooling bandanas? They have some form of mineral beads sewn into them. You soak them in water, tie them amound your neck, and presto for about an hour or so (depending on how hot it is) evaporation helps cool you down. Great for dogs in the summer. Or some of those fancy dog treats that look like cup cakes or chocolait bars?

Another vote for a Cuz toy or a JW pet to, they come in many shapes, varieties and colours, and are well lasting!

CsqU4r3d August 12th, 2010 06:29 PM

Good Cuz or Bad Cuz....that depends on how much you want to annoy your cousin!! Bad Cuz is about 3 times as loud as Good Cuz..:angel2::evil:

Frenchy August 12th, 2010 06:43 PM

Another suggestion about the Cuz , don't get the one with the feet (like in Cell's first picture) because they can chew them off and well , choke on them.

And yes , some squeek very loud :laughing: but my guys always end up breaking it by poking the valve with their teeth. :p but they still play with it.

CsqU4r3d August 12th, 2010 07:00 PM

In our case Chum has a foot aversion !!! He will not put the feet in his mouth..so I always have some place to grab it and throw that's not all dog slimed !!:laughing::laughing:

I got Leo Kong Squeeker balls and the squeeker is just a tiny plug in a hole of the ball, if his canine tooth pokes it their done. Luckily JW pet have well reinforced squeekers so this hasn't happened with our blue elephant cuz, but Leo doesn't like the squeek as much (likes the higher pitched ones, like the cheepo squeekers) go figure....

Jermy's favourite toys are the Pink Elephant and Green frog that are in the photos above. He used to like the green cuz a lot but once we got him the green frog he switched sides and him and his frog became inseperatable. Then, on his last b-day he got a pink elephant from his auntie... now he is inseperable from it :) he barely plays with the cuz since he got the frog and elephant...

So my vote would be for the frog or elephant!! :) But the cuz are great too, that was his favourite for over a year :D

Masha August 12th, 2010 08:31 PM

[QUOTE=cell;944197]Luckily JW pet have well reinforced squeekers so this hasn't happened with our blue elephant cuz[/QUOTE]

I second that. The JW pet have awesome squeeqers. The frog is over a year old and HEAVILY used and it still squeeks great :rolleyes: especially when watching tv or on the phone....
