*Fleece is stretchy, so very durable! No stitching! No stuffing! Squeaker is IN the tennis ball. Because fleece is stretchy, your dog's teeth will push and poke holes in the fleece (not break every strand like cotton that has no give).
Did your toy-destroying monster get the braid apart??? Just braid or knot it back together and throw it in the washer! It's brand new toy.
You won't be throwing this toy away 10 minutes after Ferocious Fido gets a hold of it.
*Tennis ball recycled from the Racquet Club of Concord, New Hampshire
