Give Your Vacuum A Break

Fluff. The eternal enemy of dog owners everywhere. People hate it, pups love it. 

That's why Skineez are the perfect compromise for people, pets n' vacuum cleaners everywhere.These stuffing free toys are flat like roadkill but cuter... and less messy (heh, literally). Featuring dual squeakers and soft chenille like fur, they're great for games of tug of war and easy to toss. We've also been impressed by the durability of our fox's extremities- after three weeks it still has all four legs, tail and half a face!

Available in fox, raccoon, and skunk in mini or full sizes (we opted for full, because that's how Paddy rolls), they're sold by a variety of vendors- we picked ours up on whim from Duane Reade (!!). If you can't locate in your neighborhood- swing by Doctors Foster and Smith where a mini will set you back $5.99 and a full-size $7.99, which is the best deal we've seen so far!

  1. You are right about the tug of war part, they are great for that. Ours have stayed intact relatively well, although we are about to lose a leg on one I think. Even that damage is after over 4 months of use, a record for this dachsie-terrier household.

  2. Gonna have to see if I can track these down here!
