2 Makes a Pack
Bought 2 because my boyfriend & I are dogs in Chinese zodiac and put them in my partnership/marriage corner of house. Yes we do laugh a lot together. Hope we dont get too pot - bellied like these guys.
Unique and whimsical!
This arrived in perfect condition and is just as pictured. Adding different amounts of water changes the pitch of the whistle.
