    Doggie Bat Toy

    Is there any chance of ever making another batch of the stuffed bat for dogs? It is so hard to find a durable stuffed toy,

    Doggie Bat Toy

    Not sure if they make a bat but the Tuffy brand dog toys are virtually indestructible. Our dog loves to disembowel stuffed toys but the two Tuffys that we have are still going strong after several years.

    No chance. Someday, though, we'll do a blog post featuring all of our other stuffed toy prototypes that never made it to production -- there was a sloth, a Roarshach, armadillo, and sheep amongst others.

    These two companies make our favorite dog toys. The Cycle Dog tug toys are great -- they stand up to many games of tug.

    Our bat is on its second generation of choc labradors from Safe Harbor Lab Rescue. The puppy de-squeakered it and tore off the TB tag. So we had to tie the bat into a knot—it remains a favorite.

    Our GSD (who ends up finding some seam she can take apart on every stuffed toy in a couple of weeks) has had the bat for a couple of years now without any issues - still looks like new.

    That said, I can imagine that this is not an easy piece to put together well and is undoubtedly quite expensive to make.
    When in trouble, obfuscate.

    I didn't have time to post a reply at the time Darcy gave her response:

    … but if you go to the middle of the Tom Bihn Forum Pets thread, and scroll down to Darcy's two posts starting with the discussions about fostering kittens (#277 and #282), you'll see some pictures of the sheep prototype that she mentioned above.

    I'll excerpt some of the relevant pictures and text (but you should follow the link to read the more extensive discussions and pictures there -- besides, there's a great picture of @Pokilani's Gracie with the bat at the top of that linked page).

    Attached is a photo of Ichiro testing it way back when:
