I ordered the Cozie I thought looked coziest to give to our new old dog... the blue one. However , it sat on the floor for weeks, having been nudged out of touching range by it's true owner (our 8 year old lab/beagle mix who is a quiet, wary rescue) Edith pushed the Cozie off the sofa, out of her bed, out of her crate...UNTIL I washed it in baby shampoo! Now she does indeed cozy up to her Cozie. There must have been an odor to this now truly cuddly item. We are both pleased with the quality, shape, feel...but since Edith is not a chewer, biter, I can't comment on the strength of stitching, etc. She is just content to snuggle it.
