It survived?? That's great! I saw that toy when I was buying some stuff on this entirelypets.c om site, and I was afraid Isa would bite right through the bottle. I wanted it though because she has this fascination with empty coke bottles...any of them, all sizes. Especially 2 liters...fits her mouth perfectly. I think she just likes the sound..or feeling of satisfaction she gets when she bites through it, but then she crunches on it for the next two hours which is deafening..and then the ends get so ragged im afraid they will slice her gums up. If your Mals havn't torn this toy up yet, hopefully it will stand up to Isa. She loves Kongs but she loses them all the time bouncing em around.
