Product Detail - Large Talk-to-Me Paw-Activated Treat Ball

Product Detail - Large Talk-to-Me Paw-Activated Treat Ball: {wish I could incl. the photo but I hate to run into copyright issues with anyone on this}

"Does your dog miss you when you're not home? Keep your best friend company even
when you're out with the Talk-to-Me treat ball. This ingenious toy lets you
record a personalized message that is activated when your pet touches the ball.
It dispenses treats randomly as it rolls along--thanks to a patented inner
dispensing system. Fits most standard-sized treats. Recommended for pets over 30
lbs. This is not a chew toy. It is also recommended that your pet be supervised
the first couple of times they use the Treat Ball. Dishwasher safe."

Okay...have you spotted the irony yet? This is NOT a slam at the website--they write what they are told from the manufacturer, I'm sure. Irony?

It dispenses treats randomly as it rolls along--thanks to a patented inner
dispensing system. Fits most standard-sized treats. Recommended for pets over 30
lbs. This is not a chew toy. It is also recommended that your pet be supervised

Okay (1) the reason you buy the thing to begin with, assumably, is because--you won't be there (see the first line of the blip)

(2) what exactly is "standard sized" treats? Dog treats come in all sorts of shapes and sizes....and textures & moisture content...notice they didn't say anything about that? There are a lot of products that look like Milk-Bones, but they are way different--some are just slightly larger/smaller, some are thicker/thinner, some are more rounded/edgy....there is no "standard".

(3 & my favorite) It is meant to dispense treats--but its not a chew toy. I'm sorry I have a Newfoundland--a couch isn't supposed to be a chew toy either, but it can become one! You put treats in anything and I don't care what kind of dog you've got, unless it has a really tender mouth--its an instant chew-toy.

P.S. the ball is 5 1/2" diameter---Addy is over 30 lbs---but this thing is a choking hazard!
