For anyone who hasn't read my other toy reviews, I have the star dog for testing out toy durability - misty the border collie who destroys anything she is given within minutes. The Pig The pig is made out of thick latex rubber and has a smooth feel to it. the particular pig I purchased was a grey one, but they also come in pink. The creators have obviously put some thought into the design, as the pig's face is absolutely brilliant, with two big ears, small black eyes, a wrinkled nose and an open mouth to make it look like it is permanently oinking! The pig's characteristics don't stop there, with the lovely curly tail, wrinkled skin and two-toed trotters also contributing to the pig's appearance. The "oink" of the pig sounds somewhere between snoring and a very old, grumpy pig!
Price I bought mine from a well known high street shop for £2.99, but they generally go for about £7.
My dogs' verdict When Misty got this Christmas morning, she didn't even bother to take the paper off! she was more than happy just oinking a wrapped present. once she had got the paper off, she had it confiscated after an hour and a half of constant pig noises. she still absolutely adores her pig, and I don't hear the end of it if I give it to her. misty tends to destroy anything she is given, so for this toy to still be oinking away it must be quite durable! The toy's light weight makes it possible to play with her indoors, and to play fetch outside.
my verdict I must say, the Trixie pig is one of my favourite toys I have bought. it is easy to wash as the dirt ccomes off just by running it under the tap, it is suitable for fairly strong dogs, and the design is fantastic! I would highly recommend this to anyone with a dog, big or small.
