OMG Best Toy Ever

So Sugar and I went to pick up her Doogles today, of course we had to check out the toys. Walked out with the Doogles and a Mini Skinneez. Sugar carries it every where I have never seen her play with something for so long, won't even share with Peanut.
Does any one else have these for their dogs? I think I'll go back and get her the other ones.

Got Sugar the fox. They kinda look like road kill.
After seeing the prices online I'm going to get her a couple more, the store I got hers from only charges $5.98 for them ,think I got a really good deal.

Got mine at Healthy Paws in Sarnia. Hopefully alsan can find out where theirs came form.
They come in large and small sizes. Hope you can find a store near you that sell them.

Chase_mom we got ours at walmart, everywhere has a walmart. And yup pretty much look like roadkill especially when they get left out in the rain. Then you have to wash them so they look like clean road kill

Oh, mine love these too! Although beware, we had the skunk one as well and it got dragged out into the backyard through the doggie door and left outside overnight during a rain storm. It ended up scaring my dog walker to death who thought it was a real carcuss of a dead skunk that my dogs were playing with, LOL! She called me all in a panic. Still makes me laugh.

LOl...that's too funny Smiley14!!!

Thanks aslan - I'll go check out Wal-Mart next week when I get my first paycheque (WOOHOO!!!) - I think my sweeties deserve a little present

I think these toys would be great for Kailey - she can be nervous sometimes and I think she'd find a stuffie comforting - and with these I don't need to worry about stuffie guts spilling all over the place!

wow, what a great find! Thanks for posting about it! Tucker would probably love them, but at the same time, would probably be a bit bummed that there were no "magical clouds of happiness" inside.

Smiley, that story made me laugh!!!

:sad: I checked my Walmart yesterday and they didn't have any. I was so looking forward to bringing one home for the Pins...but I brought home a stuffed water serpent dragon thingy instead.

It took about an hour of torture from Petie...then I had to take it away because he was eating all the stuffing out of it.

I've never heard of these which isn't a surprise since I live in Booneyville, B.C.

I will have to check the Walmart store the next time we make a trip there.

I'm going to post this thread in the Dog Products Review forum since it hasn't been used much ....I hope you don't mind, lotus.

On the subject of toys, I would like to warn everyone about balls with tongue holes in them. If you have any Kong-type toys, make sure they have at least two holes in them. If you have any with just one hole in it, throw it out!

Recently I heard from someone I know that a regular dog at a dog run I frequent put his tongue in a ball with one hole, and it created a vacuum and he couldn't get it out all day while the owners were at work. When they owners came home they couldn't get it out either so he was taken to the emergency vet. They had to amputate a large part of his tongue! Very nasty indeed.
