The Review

We picked 2 toys to randomly test.  Chachala, our Chihuahua was in charge of testing the Hartz Floppy Fantasy (pictured below, right) and Philomena the Miniature Pinscher was in charge of testing the Hartz At Play Frisky Frolic Pet Toy (pictured below, left).

When they saw us cutting the tags off of the toys, they immediately came over and started to cry.  Chachala grabbed that toy and ran over to the carpet while shaking it, growling and squeezing the squeaker.  She was having a blast!

Phil was so intrigued by the texture of the Hartz At Play Frisky Frolic Pet Toy, she kept biting it and the squeaker had her going big time.  She was jumping all over the place attacking it.  Then she picked it up, carried it over to the carpet and had a squeak-fest right along side of Chachala.

Phil was really checking this toy out.  Luckily we snapped a picture at the exact moment of the size up!

Philomena checking out her toy...obviously she takes her work seriously.

Let’s hear from the testers:

Chachala: I love this fuzzy toy.  I shake it, I squeak it, I GRRR like a big dog when I play with it.  I give it 4 PAWS UP!

Philomena: I was like, this is the most awesome toy paws-able.  The squeak-a-de-squeak-a with the bounciness was making me try to bite it, and then the nubbins were making me shake it even more.  I had so much fun! I give it 4 PAWS UP!

And now the 2 toy give away to one lucky winner!
