I have been going crazy trying to find a certain dog toy for my shephard.  It was her favorite and the Hartz company stopped making it.  It was a soft hamburger & she loved it.  Most importantly, even if it broke it still squeaked which is great because shephards are so hard on their toys.   For over a year, I have tried every supermarket, walmart, pet store near my home and have even looked while on vacation.  I decided to check Ebay and was shocked to see that I am not the only one looking for this dang toy. There is one auction going now and the price is $27.00 with 2 days left!!! I checked closed auctions and was shocked to see that three auctions ended at prices of $50, $54 and $62.  They were for 2 cheeseburgers, but still it's just a small squeak toy!  If only I knew that they were going to be discontinued - I'd have stocked up on them.  I'm sad thinking she'll never be able to have this toy again.  Sorry if this seems silly, but my Dixie is such a good dog and is getting up there in years.

Wow!  It's amazing they're going for so much!  I have yet to find one with a squeaky that my terrier mix can't tear through in 20 minutes.

Darn sorry, it was a milkbone hamburger.  I will keep looking though!

I found this one going for only 99 cents right now. It does have 5 days left, though.
