My friend got this snowman for my schnoodle, Odie last year and it is his favorite toy. The talking mechanism is long gone, but the size is just perfect for my 14 pound dog to carry it around. He takes the snowman under my bed (I call it his "man-cave") and will spend hours there with his snowman. I was so excited when I saw it on line, I ordered 3 more. I can't tell you how happy Odie and I will both be!!
