It will be good for Buster to play - it will give him exercise and it will be fun!!! (For both of you!)
Phatty's all-time favorite toy is a bottle buddy. You can get them at Carolina Pet Pantry. It's a cow (or sheep or pig, etc) with a plastic bottle inside (good noise maker). I'll throw that thing (we call it a piggie regardless of what animal I buy) and he'll chase it everytime. I do not leave him unattended with it though because he's a chewer and will tear it up ..
