Happy Birthday Hurley!

Posted June 18, 2014

Ten years ago, we introduced our first Zogoflex® dog toy that hurled us into the durable dog toy game. That product was Hurley®!  We already knew Hurley was incredibly long-lasting and tough, but when we saw this post on our Facebook page, we needed to know more...

Cooper's Facebook post

Pictures of Cooper as a puppy and more recently - still with the same Hurley dog toyMeet Cooper. Cooper is a Jack Russell Terrier, born the same year as Hurley, 2004.  Cooper lives with Tim and Tim describes him as “a spunky little guy full of energy and excitement.  Like many Jacks he is a big dog trapped in a small body.”  

Tim quickly learned that Cooper is able to destroy any chew toy, ball, or Frisbee he would pick up at the local pet store (sound familiar?).  So with that in mind, he “was a bit skeptical when I picked up the Zogoflex Hurley dog bone at a local dog bakery”. 

As Cooper has gone through many toys, collars, beds, and leashes, Zogoflex toys have remained a part of his  for almost 10 years.  

Cooper is Tim’s buddy. He has been a constant part of Tim’s life even as he has changed cities, homes, jobs, and relationships. In 2011, Cooper got a sibling. And like any good sibling, Cooper has learned to share his Hurley with his sister, Twinkle. 

Happy Birthday Hurley and Cooper. We feel honored to have been a part of Cooper, Tim and Twinkles’ lives!
