Oh, no!! I’ve returned to buy more of those Lil’ Bones dog toys for my Dachsie…have ordered many in the past, but now you don’t sell them anymore!

Do you know where I can still purchase them? They are hard to find! Thanks!!

    I’ve forwarded your question to Candy, who ran Best Friends General Store, to see if she has any ideas. I know how hard it can be to find your dog’s fav toy sometimes.

Voted…..Hopefully these are good dog toys though. I’ve been through so many toys for my dog. Either he doesn’t mess with the toy or destroys it within hours. Even the “indestructible” ones. It wasn’t until recently I found one that he A) Loved and B) has lasted. I definitely recommend checking out dog toys for anyone experiencing the same problems I had and is tired of burning money. I know how expensive it can get.
