Winston is great and our greyhound loves him! Still in one piece, the husks remain where they should be, but our dog hasn't destroyed any of her toys yet. Lovely to see her playing with Winston and carrying him almost everywhere!
It fits fine with the UK Hobby Store binoculars. I thought someone else might find this information useful. Nothing more to write; it works fine and at the moment it holds the binoculars well and securely.
