Snax for everyone!

Dear Friends,

Many of you have written and asked where you can buy your own Snax toys - those fun, round, squeaky rubber toys from Petco - you can see me at right with my Snax collection. Some of you went to Petco and asked for Snax - that made us laugh a lot around here cos Snax is our pet name for the product, not the official one! Some of you tried describing them to the salespeople, but could not find them. They are also NOT on the Petco website.

So, Mom wrote to Petco for more information - and we are happy to say we got a great note back (Mom sent a link to my blog photos of me and Snax - and note that he said I was "a beautiful dog!" ). The Petco rep even referred to them as Snax too - I thought that was lovely. Here is the letter:

Dear Daniella,
Thank you for contacting PETCO. I am excited to hear that Axel has enjoyed having Snax around. Axel is a beautiful dog.
The product you described is the 2 inch Puppy Sweetie Latex dog toy SKU 938424. Regrettably, this product is not available on but can be found in various PETCO stores. I have notified our E-Commerce and Merchandising teams of your suggestion to have this product available online. I would advise your readers to contact their local PETCO store and provide the SKU 938424. They will be ble to verify if the physical product is available in their location.
For assistance with finding store locations, please visit
Thank you for your continued patronage. We greatly appreciate your kind comments and we will continue to serve you as best we can.

Mom was impressed with Manny B's lovely note and appreciation for my good looks. So go out and find your Snax people - just take the SKU number along. Let me know if you enjoy them as much as I do!

And in other breaking news: Our petition JUMPED up another 500+ signatures. Mom can't believe it and nor can Dean-O's mom - many jigs continue...

Yeah, well, as one of the many dummies who looked for "SNAX" at Petco, I appreciate the clarification. Actually, muzzer got me one, but I haven't gotten it yet. We are waiting for some day at the store when it is not busy.. That way, if I shred it in 30 seconds, she can clean it up before the fan club arrives.

The Snax look like fun. I am going to PetCo on Saturday - I will look for them.

That's great news about the petition!!!!!

Your friend, Lenny

Hey Axel, sadly I think I'd destroy a Snax in about 5 seconds. It was a nice letter though from Petco and I'm glad to see they appreciate your handsomeness. J x

Wow, sounds like your on your way to being the Snax spokesdog! Will we be seeing you on the package soon? After all, they admit you are a beautiful dog!

Wonderful news about the petition. Warms my heart to see some good being done.

Hey Ax! I googled the stuffie - I found a website before when I sent it to Scruffy and Lacie, but now I can't find it. The tag says "Golden Bear Co. Ltd." My friend who bought it for me just found it at a drug store by the register...hope that helps!

Your friend, Lenny

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Giggle...they went in and asked for Snax??? Ha ha ha ha ha!! Course last summer Mumsie went in and asked for Balloon Man. Boy Axel....I love to pull the rope of it...but I've only killed one of them. They're pretty cheap $2.99. Only one Petco sells it here and it's the one that's far away. But we make Mumsie drive there anyway.

So glad bout the petition!!!!!!!!

Gus said...

Axel: re your comment to my blog! Has your Mom contacted those guys and asked when her check is comin'? We know you guys were the first to call them snax...we went out lookin' for the things. Let us know...we have a "stash" of Snax we can return in protest.
