Mighty Lenny Leopard Safari Dog Toy by VIP Products

Durability Rating: [Rating:2/5]

Earlier this week, we reviewed the Mighty Ball also by VIP Products, which is a big hit here at our house.  This toy, the Mighty Lenny Leopard Safari Dog Toy, unfortunately, has not been so lucky.  Even though VIP Products rates this toy as a 9 on their Dura-Scale, it didn’t last more than a day here.  Before we knew it, there was stuffing everywhere, and what a lot of stuffing there was!

Mighty Lenny Leopard... not so mighty

This is the second disappointment in the Safari series.  We also tried the Polar Bear stuffie back in November, and were equally disappointed.  That toy got returned to the store the next day, but this toy, we kept since it was part of the Dog Toy Tester program.

Mighty Balls by VIP Products

Another awesome toy from our friends at VIP Products. The Mighty Ball has been in the toy bucket for several months now and it’s held up remarkably well over the duration.  No signs of wear on it, and it gets a lot of play. The Mighty Ball is a fleece covered rubbery ball that squeaks, about 6″ in diameter.  The ball is just the right size — large enough so that it doesn’t get lost under furniture, works well as a kick ball, but small enough to pick up and carry around.  It’s also very flexible and soft on the mouth.

John Edward on the Dr. Oz Show

John Edward on the Dr. Oz Show

Dr. Oz is one of my morning rituals. I love to have my coffee with Dr. Oz, while the dogs and I get some play and snuggle time before work. Earlier this week, very oddly, one of his guests was the psychic medium, John Edward. Did some of you see this show?  I found it fascinating that he would pick people out from the audience based on the “messages” he was getting from the great beyond and pass along messages to them.

I’m sure a lot of people are skeptical about this sort of thing.  I like to keep an open mind.  I find it comforting, as I’m sure the people in the audience did too, that our loved ones are still with us in spirit, have crossed over safely, and send assurances that we will see each other again one day.

But, what does this have to do with dogs?  Well, at one point in the show, John Edward spoke to a woman, saying her mother was “here”.  He passed along some specific messages from the mother, which I’ve forgotten.  But then he said something I will never forget.  He said, “She has her dog with her.”  The daughter smiled through her tears.  Obviously her mom loved her dog very much, and she was glad they were together again in the afterlife.
