Here’s what BuzzFeed Shopping contributor AnaMaria Glavan has to say: “My French bulldog is extremely spoiled and constantly given new toys. My sister, I’m not kidding, will raid the rows at TJ Maxx once a week for a new season.” appropriate squeaker. There is currently a mutilated pastel purple bunny sitting in the trash because, yes, he chewed it up in a day…which brings me to my point! Chew toys can cost between $10 and $14 each and last maybe three days. with minimal play. My dog sleeps 18 hours out of a 24 hour cycle, so it perplexes me that he manages to go through them so quickly. But a few months ago I found this very simple yellow duck toy on Amazon that had over 14,000 reviews from buyers saying it could take a lot of wear and tear. I figured my dog deserves the best, so let’s try it.
People! This duck is woven with Valyrian steel! I literally bought it on November 24, 2020 (and am writing on March 25, 2021) and it’s still going strong. It hasn’t been torn, torn, there’s no lint of toy innards scattered around our living room. Nada. It’s still perfectly intact, and Rockie generally prefers this toy to any other in his ever-changing arsenal. It’s also perfect for his medium body shape, but I can see it being just as ideal for small dogs as it’s lightweight, despite being larger. My dog is also strange in that he prefers to sleep on this random blanket in the corner rather than in his bed and Sometimes he drags the duck with him and lies next to it and I… my eyes fill with tears when I think about how adorable it is.
The best part is that the toy costs less than $10. Considering the quality, one would expect it to cost *a lot* more considering I haven’t had to replace it in the four months I’ve owned it. And again, I want to point out: my dog usually tears through his toys in less than a week, so having one that lasts 15 times longer?! It’s pretty sweet. I also want to point out that the squeaker is not obnoxiously loud, which is a joy.”
