I don't know if you have ever lived with a dachshund but they can be very aggressive with toys. Like Frankie, they look so cute but they are way determined.
We have many dachshund customers who are total wool ball addicts. Wool balls stand up well to a dachshund but cloth toys usually go down in less than an hour. Some part of me flinches when a dachshund goes home with one of our fleece bones. I think: poor bone. Because of this, I am especially glad Frankie is part of our testing team.
Frankie found the dumpling to be chewy, fun to chase, and pretty darn durable but... he would like a louder squeaker. To be really loud a squeaker needs lots of air. The dumpling is made with heavy durable fabric so the air flow is limited. Sadly, a loud squeak is just not in the cards. Sorry Frankie.
