Gazillion Fetch a Bubble smells like chicken
I can personally attest to the Gazillion team's observation that dogs go "utterly bananas for bubbles." They really do. I remember sitting on my parents' porch when I was a kid--my fingers soapy from that too-short bubble wand--cracking up hysterically as our family dog, Miki, chased, snapped up, and essentially ate the stream of bubbles I blew near her. I knew (embarrassingly from experience) that the soap didn't taste good, but Miki didn't seem to mind.
That's why the Fetch a Bubble ($30) by Gazillion has me scratching my head a bit. I understand all the bubble wands, which rotate a full thirteen times per minute and supposedly produce thousands of bubbles. That part I get. What doesn't make sense to me is why the bubbles are chicken-scented. Yes, you read that right. Chicken-scented bubbles.
If it's already a proven fact that dogs go crazy over bubbles, what's the point of trying to entice them further? And not only that, but isn't it rather misleading for something to smell like chicken but taste like soap?
