If you like to give your dog squeak toys, but get tired of the ear-splitting squeal, give this plush dog toy a try. Not only does it deliver a completely different noise, its oddball looks are amusing even when your dog isn’t playing with it.
The “phake phur pheasant” is about 16.5” in length, including the tail. The head and body are comically disproportionate, as are the stubby little wings. It also seems that its legs are tucked in for flight, with feet sticking directly out of its tummy. Put simply, this is one goofy-looking bird.
But, let’s face it. The toy is for your dog’s enjoyment, not yours, right? Well, just let him/her get hold of the soft-bodied toy and you’ll both be tickled. Instead of the usual harsh squeaker, the noisemaker in this plush toy emits sounds that range from a grunt to a squawk. The sounds are in a pleasant frequency range that won’t have your nerves on edge after the first minute. Most dogs will enjoy experimenting with the sounds, much to the amusement of their owners.
