West Paw Hurley Dog Toy


My human said it isn't safe for me to chew on sticks, which was a bummer because I thought it was a lot of fun. Then she gave me my Hurley. It's way better than a stick because pieces don't come off and jab me in the mouth. It acts like a ball, too, and bounces like crazy when my human throws it for me. We even took it to the beach; it floated when my human threw it into the water!
