Rex Reviews JW Pet ~ Intelligent Ideas for Happy Pets ~ Prize Pack #Giveaway

Rex Reviews...

My name is Rex.
I am a three year old Yellow Lab and I am a squeaky toy addict.
It's true.
I'm not sure just exactly what it is about squeaky toys that gets my pup heart a-pumping and my tail a-wagging but I love those squeaky squeakers.

When I was a pup, my Mom brought home some rubber squeaky toys. Ah, the memories. I squeaked those babies all over the house and then gutted them.

Mom and Dad picked up all the pieces of rubber, wrestled me for the squeaker and threw the whole business away. "Hey, I just got that squeaker out!" They aren't very good listeners.

After that, Mom started bringing home furry squeakers. I didn't mind. I'm an equal opportunity squeaker addict. They seemed to want to play with it, with me so I humored them for awhile. It wasn't easy, but I waited a couple of days and then gutted it. Of course, here she came again and took all of it away. "Woman, I was using that!" (sigh)

Every few weeks or so, Mom would bring home another furry squeaky. Dad would make some frowny face grumbling noises but, eventually, they gave me the furry squeaker.

I tried everything! I tried gutting them in my den, behind the couch. I even growled once, to let them know how strongly I felt, but that didn't work out so well. They can't help it; they are slow learners, but they mean well.

I have other human friends that look out for me, though. Like the mailman. I love that guy! Almost every day, he leaves a treat for me in the box by the road. I can hear him coming from a mile away! I bark at him from the window and his noisy box barks back. Kind of sounds like a goose.

Sometimes, my other friend comes in the BIG BOX and leaves little boxes at the front door. I think he is a little shy; I always tell him to come on in, but he never does.

When Mom gets the boxes, sometimes she brings them to me. I love those days! Now, the box itself is quite a treat because they have SO MANY smells to sniff and I could chew and rip on that baby for hours. Of course, I got to do that about twice. Mom usually takes the box away. (shaking head)

The last time a box came for me was pretty exciting. There were three rubbery squeakers inside! Aroooo rooo! There was a baseball with a squeaker, a bowling pin with a squeaker and a football with a squeaker. It was so exciting, I couldn't decide which one I liked the best! I ran all over the house, squeaking them as loud as I could to let my boy and girl know it was play time.

They seemed pretty excited, too. I let everyone get a turn to play with my new squeakers and even played fetch with the football with Dad in the backyard. He likes that.

It took a while to finally wear them all out, but when they went to bed, I hid the squeakers in different spots. I hid one in my den, one in the couch and one in the cat's climber. ( I didn't have to worry about her - she's just cranky and boring)

The next day, after my people left in the morning, I retrieved the bowling pin so I could gut it. I must have chewed on that thing for an hour, but no luck! I tried every chewy, gnawing trick I know - no dice! Not on the bowling pin, not on the baseball, not on the football.

When Mom got home and saw the squeakers, she was so happy. She was making excited noises to Dad when he got home and then they both came and looked at the squeakers. "Not sure what you guys look so happy about; these squeakers are defective", I said. When my boy and girl came home, they had to come look, too. Even my boy looked happy.

(I mentioned they are kind of slow, right?) So, I squeaked all the squeakers and pulled on the squeakers to show my people that they were broken. They just didn't get it. Dad wanted me to play fetch with him again outside. (sigh)

Now, I'm the kind of pup that likes to try to find the positive side in any situation. Even though these squeakers were clearly not of the same quality of all the squeakers I've had before (read: un-guttable) there are some advantages to them.

First, Mom hasn't even tried to throw them away. Second, I always have something to squeak. Lastly, Dad does seem to really like to play fetch, so I play squeaky football with him every night. It's good exercise for him.

Rex Recommends...
If for some crazy, human reason you want un-guttable squeaky toys, JW Pet is the place to go. They have stuff for dogs, cats, birds, fish and other small animals. Be warned though, they seem to be human (read: a little slow).

We know dogs love squeakers and they go wild for the sound. So, we wanted to find a way to make squeaky toys as safe as possible. After all, we care very much about every dog’s well-being. Our product designers began by considering a number of possible ways to build a squeaker into a toy. The goal was to make the squeaker as sturdy as possible. First, we surrounded each squeaker with a cone-shaped, hard plastic housing. Then, we created a unique and patented way to “lock” the squeaker into the toy and protect it. Of course, there are less expensive squeakers and faster ways to place them into a dog toy. But there is virtually nothing exactly like ours available from anyone else. No one takes as much care with squeakers as we do.

My kitty would love the Magneticat toy. She's seven months old and very playful! We're always trying to find new toys to stimulate her and keep her busy!

I love how you wrote this from the POV of your dog! Super clever!!

Brutus the Boxer would love to have the Megalast Long Dog. He loves his toys and long toys are his favorite.

How sad that Rex is not able to gut his squeaky toys. I definitely need to try these with Rio. After a few days he manages to get the squeaker out of every other toy we have tried.

I'd have to go with the "small" animal line and the smaller dog squeekies for our rodents...sigh

I like the JW’s Skid Stop Slow Feed™ bowl for my dog Milele because it helps prevent overeating and bloating. Milele eats so fast and this would slow her down while giving me peace of mind.

I love the Megalast bone because it is extremely durable and infused with vanilla (my favorite scent). I would give it to my dog, Hunter, because he destroys every toy we give him LOL Thanks!

Laura Jacobson said...

My favorite toy is the Great Ape! How adorable! I have a new dog I adopted on Halloween that had been looking for a new forever home for almost 4 months. A local shelter rescued him from another state about a week before I found him at our local petstores adoption days. Poor guy had been thru so much and lost almost 20 pounds. Needless to say we are so happy and he is gaining his weight back. :) He would love some new toys!

I like the Skid Stop Slow Feed Bowls. There non-skid which means I wouldn't have to go across the kitchen to retrieve my dogs food bowl after they've eaten.

I would love to have this for my 3 little furbabies.

I like the grass ball and hooee mole which are both treat balls that would be wonderful for my bichons. I have two of them and they are brothers. One of them is bigger and fat and the other is thin and not fat. They eat about the same. I would love to make Tuffy the fatter one work for his treats. Rita Spratlen rjspratlen@gmail.com
