I'm surprised by the reviewers whose dogs have destroyed a Hurley in hours. We had gone through many toys with our Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix, especially when he was puppy to about 2 years old. When we got our first Hurley, things changed. He could chew it play with it, and it held together. After a while - say 2-3 years or so, it's finally getting kind of ratty - he's chewed off little pieces on each end, and I'm afraid he's going to eat them & get sick.
It's been a great toy for playing "tug" with, too. I think it's a great toy. Thanks!
