|Tugging with my friends!|
Bentley: “I let you win and you know it. It’s called “Feeling sorry for the little guy. You know what an empathetic breed I am. Besides, you didn’t even tell everyone the name of the toy. Sheesh. It is the Damien’s Tug Toy with Friends Cotton Rope Dog Toy. Humans can buy one of their very own for only $10.00 at Marks’ Etsy Shop. http://www.etsy.com/shop/DamiensBestDogToys. We can both play at the same time and Mom can join in the tussle by holding the loop handle. I’m telling y’all the truth; this toy is durable. We played, ran, tossed, and chewed but it still looks brand new.”
Pierre: “Sigh, it’s true. I hope that I’m not losing my touch but I simply could not kill
this super dog toy.
Grandma surprised us by giving us our own special size of Tug & Toss
toy. Mine is an attractive 12” navy,
maroon, and green Ava Tug and Toss.
Damien’s Best made it out of three cotton rope strands about ½” thick. It is proving very durable even though it is
soft in my mouth. It’s a great size for
me to run, throw, and play tug. I hate
that I have to kill it.”
|"Perfect size for me!"|
Bentley: “How’s that whole killing thing working for ya? Face it; you just can’t hurt one of Damien’s Best Dog Toys. You have gnawed your Ava Tug & Toss rope for days now. You look like a dad gum beaver down there with it between your paws. You may as well give up, because it still looks new and untouched
your pearly canines. Don’t let me see you
going all Hannibal Lector on mine. It is
plus-sized for guys like me. Please, don’t
confuse our toys. They look similar, mine
is designed from the same size rope as yours, but it is navy and green. Plus, the ball on mine is about 4 ½” in
diameter and my rope is 14” long. The
ball on yours is 3 ½” so don’t think I won’t notice if you take the large one. If we decide to share and you appear to be
having fun with mine, I’ll want it back then; I will hold you down and slap you
in the face with my ears. I can’t have
mine damaged because I love it. Seriously,
I’m not worried because these toys are made to last. We have gone through countless rope
toys. Either they break or someone (you)
eats them. I think we will be able to
play with these for years! Everyone
should have these great toys. They are much
more reasonably priced than those other wimpy ropes Mom has bought.
|"Pierre is about to try to steal this,|
Pierre: “I guess that you’re right about killing it, but that doesn’t mean I am accepting
defeat. I intend to keep chewing on mine. Mark’s dogs sure are lucky to have a dad who’s
a toymaker. You know that he names the
toys after his dogs. Damien, Ava, and
Veruca are going to be famous and what’s even better is they are all rescue
dogs! They all live in Vermont where Mark
was working with the North County Animal League in Morrisville. That is where his best friends lived before joining
his forever family. While working with
the League’s dog trainer, he realized the importance of keeping the rescues
stimulated with play and human interactions.
Since shelters rely on donations, he developed his toys as a way to
provide toys for shelters and humane societies.
Grandma is right Mark Scott IS a nice man.”
|"Grrrr! It's Pierre-proof!"|
Pierre is Westie photo-bombing me!"
Bentley: “Yep, he’s a nice man who makes a darn fine rope toy! He certainly deserves to call them Damien’s Best Dog Toys. When we got our toys, he had already donated 358 dog toys and 5,087 cat toys. I’m ready to give my paws rating and can we puh-leeze add a fifth paw. It’s im-paw-tant!” (snicker)
Me: “That was a great review boys! You covered most of the facts, gave links so our readers can order their own rope toys, and told a little about Mark’s history. I guess you deserve an additional paw rating. I want you to give them an honest paw rating. Don’t be swayed by a great story. I want y’all to consider durability, attractiveness, fun/engaging, and price. Let me know when you’re ready.”
Bentley & Pierre: “Ready! Do that drumroll thing that you do before we reveal our paws.”
Me: Slapping palms on edge of table as the boys make a big deal of scoring.
