Jeep Ruff’n Tough Man Dog Toy

A package arrived in the mail with a special present.  As our readers know, our limousine is a Jeep Wrangler and our Hu-dad loves driving it (and we love riding around in it).  So a friend found the perfect present:

Jeep Ruff'n Tough Man Dog Toy
Jeep Ruff’n Tough Man Dog Toy

The advertisement we found for it read, “This is one tough toy for tough little Jeep dogs.  This toy is fun for games of fetch, keep-away, or tug-of-war.  Even puppy teeth will have trouble tearing through this guy.”  We really liked the bullet points that cited such things as “Extra Strong Construction,” “Built to Last,” and “Provides Hours of Exercise and Play.”  So let’s see how that worked out.  Our tester was Frankie.

Elapsed time – 45 seconds.

Jeep man seems to have developed a slight “foot explosion” problem.  Frankie says it is not really a big deal.  He still has his favorite chew toy:

A Cheesewhiz Chew Toy.
Frankie Chew Toy Cheesewhiz
Frankie says you can chew on her for hours.

    Way back Wednesdays sometimes bring back Juno memories, who never destroyed her toys. She lined them up against the wall under the bed where she slept. I’d pull them out to vacuum them, leave them out and back they went under the bed. (She had to have her den decorated.) 🙂

    I am lucky that Miss Ruby never plays with toys. Willie on the other hand destroyed all but 1 toy in his 10 years with me. Love the way back remembering.

    Hu-Dad I laughed and laughed at the comments and also poor Cheezewiz being the chew toy! I have NEVER found any toy -especially with stuffing that will hold up no matter WHAT they claim. The only toy Bradley hasn’t destroyed is a green plastic ball that makes silly sounds!!! LOVE these Way Back Wednesdays!

    Hehehe yep he’s found the ultimate chew toy. 🙂 Don’t feel bad even the toughest toys don’t last long here.

    You guys know your pizza lore! We thought we would have everyone stumped but actually a couple of our readers got all five of the top pizza consumption days…but you were first! So…we will make donation to your rescue of choice (Sarge’s?) just as soon as you confirm where it is to go. Thanks for playing.

    Halloween surprised us a bit too, but maybe because we don’t get trick-or-treaters…the Pentagon fact was scary interesting.

    If Frankie got the leg off in 45 seconds, it would maybe take him a couple of minutes to get the other three limbs off. From what I have heard, that just might be considered “long lasting” for a Sibe!

    Looks like you are having lots of fun at Thunder Villa, Frankie!

    Kisses,
    Stella, and Zkhat

    Ha ha ha! I’m not sure which one of those is more hazardous to your health, Frankie!

    Our Ellie is just like that. No stuffed toy is going to last around her, no matter what the manufacturer says.

    My girls and I saw your beautiful dogs in Waynesville on Saturday. They were so beautiful and well behaved. I am so glad that we noticed your website on your spare cover. We have enjoyed reading about them and watching their videos. Take care, snow predicted in Georgia on Tuesday.

  12. Sagira on November 27, 2011 at 6:04 pm

    Maybe they need to have the Herd test them before they make such statements. But that sure was nice and thoughtful of your friend.

  13. Sam on November 27, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    Ouch, Frankie! That looks like it is hurting Cheez Whiz!

    Mom always laughs at the Super Tough Toy – she wonders what they use to test them!

    “We don’t think there is a sibe-proof toy out there:)”
    I agree with the OP Pack’s comment above. When she was about 3 years old, we bought Ayla one of those “Kong” solid rubber balls except for a tiny little bell in the centre. It was GUARANTEED to be “unchewable”. We have the pictures of Ayla with a bezillion tiny little red pieces of rubber in front of her, and we sent one of the pictures to the company that made the “indestructable” ball. Never did hear back from them! I think Cheez Whiz will last a lot longer!

    Clearly Jeep forgot to do quality control with a Sibe!

  16. Lisa Myers on November 27, 2011 at 3:08 pm

    This gave me just the laugh I needed for the day! It’s always nice to see that Frankie (& the rest of the Herd) is just like my Sitka. We have so many amputated dog toys but he still plays with them. It would be nice to have a full size, full time, chew toy like Frankie has!
    Thanks for the chuckles, Sitka’s Mom Lisa

    We keep waiting for a toy that’s built BOONDOCKS tough. No such luck thus far!! BOL!!

    AROOOOOF!

    Ha woo. There’s “tough” and then there’s “husky tough”!!!
    My favorite chew toy is Zimmie!

    LOLOL! Really, no “toy” beats another husky for hours of fun. However, two of our girls form ‘Team Destructo’: one kills the squeaker immediately, then tears a hole in the fabric, even those super tough toys. Her job done, she hands off to the de-stuffer specialist. [Note to huskymom: DO NOT remove all the loose stuffing and toss in a wastebasket–it has to be “displayed”. And don’t buy us a pre-de-stuffed toy. Geez.] A new toy lasts less than an hour (but those minutes of peace on a rainy/stormy day are……priceless). In ensuing weeks, the toy remnants may be pounced on once or twice, or chased if tossed in the yard, but really, the fun is over. Hmmm…this edge of the rug looks like it would tear off….. When are we going for our hike????

  20. Pamela on November 27, 2011 at 8:29 am

    People who claim their dog toys are extra tough obviously don’t have dogs.

    Glad Frankie has Cheoah. Her stuffing will never come out (hopefully).

  21. HUSKYS RULE on November 27, 2011 at 8:26 am

    Frankie has his own life-size chew toy!! Way cool!!!

  22. The OP Pack on November 27, 2011 at 7:52 am

    We don’t think there is a sibe-proof toy out there:)

    So good to see Frankie fitting in so well. Thunder is everyone’s favorite chew toy here.

  23. Wild Dingo on November 27, 2011 at 5:43 am

    Wow. Looks like he found a girlfriend? does she feel the same way? she looks annoyed. Frankie can come annoy us anytime. OMD, Frankie! sigh…

    • D.K. Wall on November 27, 2011 at 6:54 am

      They are thick as thieves. Cheesewhiz is only annoyed because he has the upper paw – for this part of the match. They are constantly body slamming, chewing, wrestling, chasing each other. In fact, they are wrestling at this exact second as I write this.

  24. Suka on November 27, 2011 at 2:56 am

    BOL! A “foot explosion”! Frankie, you crack me up! I think you could have given Jeep Man a full body explosion but were just being nice. Anyway, I like your Cheezewiz chewy much better! Where can I get one?

Halloween Costumes

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
