"Well, here it is: the most disgusting, revolting, wretch-inducing chew toy in the history of dogs."  From "Pooch Cafe," today.  (As illustrated, it definitely is disgusting.)  Uncorrected so far online.

Unless the idea is to connote the dogs' aggressively ravenous behavior in the last panel, where they are all fighting for possession of this chew-toy.
