Blue rubber tube was tough enough and did not break into pieces at all. Ropes came un-knotted and slipped inside the tube during tug-of-war session.
Longest Lasting Toy by Dmcash1 from California11/20/2013
I have a Lab/Retriever mix, and this is one of his favorite chew toys. Of course the string is pulled out within minutes (like the filling out of a sandwich cookie), but the body of this lasts for at least a year. Great for a game of fetch, bounces like crazy, floats and he loves to chew on it.

Somewhat dissapointed. This was smaller than I expected. I have a 14mo. old large mixed breed and also a power chewer. He loved the toy but was destroyed within 5 minutes from chewing. Only recommend for small dogs and should be noted so in product description.
