I thought they looked cute online, but they are way better looking in person! Here's a little blurb about Mutt Puppets from the company:
It all started back in 2003 when a husband and wife saved their dog’s life as she was choking on the stuffing from a plush dog toy. After that eye opening experience Michael & Theresa Fraser have been on a mission to create stuffing-free dog toys called MuttPuppets! Holding dog toy manufacturers and their default ideas to higher standards, Michael & Theresa eliminated the dangerous stuffing with their 3 layer design, and combination concepts. MuttPuppet won back to back Pinnacle Awards from Pet Age Magazine, determined by their reader requests in the toy category, also featured in Modern Dog Magazine, Dogs Magazine, the Pet Expert Charlotte Reed, and recently selected by FIDO Friendly’s 100 BEST PET PRODUCTS.They are basically stuffing free toys that are made to be very durable, but at the same time fun for dogs! The standard Mutt Puppet (above) has a detachable (by velcro) head and a secret treat pocket that came with a rawhide bone:
Gibson can not figure out how to get the bone out and it drives him crazy! He has so much fun tossing the toy around and rolling around chewing on the pocket. He nubs like crazy with this guy :)
The other toy is called "Mutt Nutts" and look like little nuts attached to a rope. On the back of these there are more treat pockets, which I filled with treats today and drove Gibson even more crazy :)
Oh yes, and both of them squeak, of course!! These are both super fun and available in my OpenSky shop if you are interested (three come in the pack.. read below for where the third one ended up ;) ).
Here is Gibson's first experience with a Mutt Puppet:
Besides these guys and our Secret Santa Gifts, Gibson also received:
A stuffed chipmunky-type of dude
4 orange Kong Squeaky balls
A stuffed goose toy
A squeaky Christmas tree
He really made out like a bandit :)
Speaking of Secret Santas, ours was Emily of the Gray House Divided! Click here to see what we got her and her pup, Wrigley! (there may or may not be that missing mutt puppet ;) )
So, what did your pup get for Christmas this year??
