When we first got this toy, we thought it looked kind of weird but that was okay. We weren't sure how the dogs would take to it. They took *very* well to the wreck of lamb. I want to purchase two more. If one of the dogs have this, the others get jealous and a chase ensues. If my husband or I picks up this toy, the dogs go wild barking, jumping, and running circles. It is adored in our household.
