Accidental gift guide for dogs

photo of Coco and Chuck by Heather B. Armstrong for

Yesterday I posted a photo of Coco trying to retrieve a dog toy from a tree, and I got a slew of inquiries about it. It’s called a Chuckit! Flying Squirrel, and Coco loves it more than a ball or a stick or barking at leaves. And guys, she is the Imperial Emperor of Barking at Total Bullshit.

She is super hard on toys, and this thing has lasted a good three years. Can’t recommend it enough if your dog is a fetcher. I’m always throwing balls over the fence or onto the roof where they roll into the gutter. So, good for the fetcher, good for the dog owner who never learned how to throw a ball over home plate.
