New edition of Meadow chews stuff up

Reading Time: 2 minutes

You may remember Meadow, my sister’s family’s dog, from previous “Meadow Chews Stuff Up” posts in which we look at which toys sold as being strong and durable for dogs actually hold up to Meadow’s chewing prowess.

In today’s “episode,” we’re looking at Meadow versus a toy apple.

The toy, which you can see out of the packaging in the photo above, is the JW Pet Apple Core Chew-Ee Dog Toy and, according to its product description, it boasts “a hidden inner pocket for toothpaste or a spreadable treat” and “a spinning core for increased cleaning action.” So, maybe an apple toy a dog will keep the vet away? Sorry, many of you know I can’t resist a pun.

If you’re interested in learning more about the toy, you can find it on Amazon at this link.

Meadow turned out to be a big fan of this toy as you can see from the photo below.

But the key question is, of course, did Meadow chew the toy up right away or was it strong enough to stand the Meadow test?

It turns out, that even though Meadow lavished lots of love on the toy, in the form of plenty of chewing, it was a full seven days before Meadow managed to take a chunk out of it. Or, should I say, before she got a bite out of the apple? (Told you I can’t resist.)

Given how long the toy held up compared with other toys that have been put to the test, and also given how much Meadow loved it, I think I can say other dogs will probably have a great time with this toy as well.

Do you have any recommendations for the Meadow Chew Test? Let me know in the comments.
