Our dog, Hobbes the Aussie Shepherd, had a love on for these little stinkers! I would much prefer if he' d focused on the Folkmanis ones as opposed to the real ones though! The little Skunk Finger Puppet is shy, and fearful and yet very powerful when needs be. Skunks are a common sight in North Van's neighbourhoods - and in books. If you would like one that is tame and not stinky at all, please come by BC Playthings and see this finger puppet and more!
