Me, I'm a cat person. Mainly cause they pretty much take care of themselves. I was one of those people who was baffled by folks that took days off work when their family pet passed away. I use to be that guy. Now, I see the family pet as a major part of the family unit. So anytime I see anything that could affect our loved ones in a negative manner I always want to share. If your doggie has one of these rope chew toys...be careful!! Or better yet, get rid of the toy all together. I just read a story about a family whose family dog died after eating the rope and destroying the dogs intestine. The whole story is HERE if you'd like to read it. Be careful and give your babies a big ol' belly rub from Big Boy Elroy!
