    Hi Grevillea, that's almost one year. Very impressive! Does it still squeak? And what's the squeak like? Is it bearable or a a drive you insane slowly squeak? Nero is crazy about squeaky toys... but I'm usually quite glad when they stop squeaking.

    Nope, that's good enough, thanks.

    I'm impressed with the life of the squeaker too. Both my dogs love squeaky toys and usually kill them within 15 mins.

    I emailed them as I wanted the one to fit the ball thrower and they told me. I 'think' the middle sized one was tennis ball size, I have one still in the packet at home I will have a look and get back yo you.

    I have chuckit balls for my evil hound but I don't leave them lying around for her to chew on.

    She usually chops tennis balls up into small pieces before swallowing and they go straight through.

    Swallowing a whole tennis ball is a bit of a worry. Or do you mean you got the whole fluff only back?

    Not too worried about fluff. I equate that with dog fur - which she seems to swallow a lot of given how much comes out the other end.

    Best long term (lasts a few months) chewie for my dog is a cow hoof but a dog that can swallow a whole tennis ball - shouldn't have one of these either.

    She has an everlast fun ball - which you can put stuff in - but lost interest in chewing that. The mingingness must be not quite right.

    She also has a bob a lot - but that's only interesting while there is still kibble in it (still rattles).

    Sorry about the late reply yeh it was only the fluff she ate lol I'm just a worry wort.

    Today I went to PETstock and was going to buy a ChuckIt ball, I took my pup instore with me and gave her a ball to sniff. She picked it up and chomped on it for a bit and it already had teeth marks - if she can manage to do that I expect her to be able to rip it up.
    So instead I got her a Kong Frisbee. Well.. she just managed to rip a chunk out of that too. lol I really need to find her a toy she can't destroy

    I wouldn't worry about teeth marks - my chucks are well tooth marked too - but unlike tennis balls - not completely shredded into fine pieces.

    I don't leave them with her to play with tho - the chuckits only come out while we're playing fetch and then they go back in the toy bucket or cupboard.
