Excerpts from original article that appeared in ATRA Aire-Mail, July 2008
For this first issue about Airedale Information, I’m going to Sh’Aire some news with you about my very favorite things. Toys!!! This is a V’Airey special toy that even smells great, with just a hint of cow essence. Mmmmm. Makes me want to do a tuckbuttrun just thinking about it.
I can’t wait to test the new toy the Sitzman pack told me about! It sounds udderly divine! It’s called the Udder Tug and they give it a four tails up rating! It’s a dog toy made from recycled rubber liners used in machines to milk real cows. Contact with all the cows leaves an irresistible cow smell that us dogs udderly love! It’s been referred to as “Eau de Bovine”. Rumor has it that these should not be confused with fresh from the factory Moo Tugs because they aren’t the “genuine article”. Udder Tugs are made in Belle Plaine, Kansas under the strict quality control testing by Petey. He’s a little guy but has a big job!
You can check them out at
My Aire-cousins, the Sitzman pack (also known as the Tug Testing Board of Approval) report this toy is very tough and durable. I think you’ll see what I mean when you look at the pictures of Lucy and her foster brother Ruger. Geez, Lucy is sure lucky to have such a handsome and playful foster brother! A boy that cute will surely find his forever home soon.
Well back to the Udder Tug….Did I mention that Helping Udders will donate 25% of the purchase cost to National Airedale Rescue? Wow! Talk about great!! We can get a new toy and help my homeless fur cousins at the same time. So give your human a nosepoke to remind them to mention "National Airedale Rescue, Inc." when they order your Udder Tug.
