Dogmeat dog toys

For Ralph, your constantly begging, perpetually shoe-gnawing but totally loveable pooch: Although we haven’t conducted an official poll on this one, we’re guessing that pretty much every dog out there would agree that being tossed a succulent turkey leg, a rare T-bone steak or a freshly caught fish by their master ranks pretty high up there on their wish fulfillment lists (maybe second to epic belly rubs). Well, in many households that ain’t going to happen, so toss ‘em the next best thing: an uber-realistic squeaky toy in the shape of their favorite forbidden treat. Dogmeat dog toys are available in three varieties — fish, fowl and red meat — and are all BPA- and phthalate-free. $12-$14.
