We have a wonderful lady that helps us with our house. This year she gave us Christmas basket with treats, and one of them was a Christmas Dragon for Snickers. She loved it. She couldn't wait to sink her teeth into it and begin shaking and chewing it to pieces. She pulled and tugged and bit to hear the squeaker squeak. Then, because it wouldn't stop squeaking, she shook it by the head until the eyes popped off. Then she shook some more until the antennae had been opened up and were shedding stuffing. The toy is mostly intact, still squeaks, but is now deaf and blind. I'll bet it is instinct to go after the head first. It sure is a fun toy, and so colorful! I think Snickers will keep us up half the night as she chews on it.
