Bought one of these as a Christmas gift for my father's springer spaniel. He (the spaniel, not my dad) pawed tentatively at the toy for half an hour until we finally managed to convince him that it was, indeed, his. The dog then promptly dragged it into his basket, ripped the wings off, pulled all the stuffing out of the body, ripped the beak off, pulled all the stuffing out of the head, and now carries the remains of this toy around proudly. Dad refers to it as the dog's, "roadkill."
Two thumbs up.
