Nylabone Dog Chew - Small Dog Variety Pack Small by Nylabone

2.0 out of 5 stars Meh., 5 Feb 2014
I've had a few of these now, and I just can't get excited about them...and more importantly, nor can my dogs.

The edible one isn't a chew at all - it disappears in two bites. Not value for money. The other two are ignored apart from a few nibbles. And I can't help but worry about when they do manage to scrape off some of the non-edible ones that they're basically swallowing plastic/nylon/whatever. They don't seem to be at all interesting, despite the claim that they're flavoured. I've tried washing them, soaking them in stock - but I can't make them appealing to the hounds.

Buy a stagbar instead.

Postman Pat SDS Complete Collection [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Ivor Wood
Yes, everything has changed and Pat has been modernised. He's now got a mobile phone, a helicopter, a motorbike and a sorting office, and he's no longer carrying the Royal Mail emblem - but the heart of the program is still there.

The storylines are easy to follow - our (just) 2 year old can tell us what's happening in each episode - and the characters are lovely too. Pat is a little (lot) inept, but he eventually saves the day in each episode. Perhaps that's why the Royal Mail let him go?

The characters are instantly recognisable from the 80s.

The songs in the episodes (as well as the theme tune itself) are brilliant and will have you singing them in the… Read more
