A llama is causing some drama thanks to its ‘rude’ design.
Kmart is selling a dog toy – we repeat, a toy for dogs, who we doubt appreciate the rudeness of any design – which is made to look like a fluffy little llama. It’s rather cute, but there’s one problem: it’s tail looks a bit like, well, a llama’s genitals.
that’s according to one woman, anyway, who drew everyone’s attention to the design detail on Facebook.
News.com.au reports that in a now-deleted post, a woman named Jayde Spilsted shared a photo of the llama’s tail and wrote: ‘We have this for our dog and I’d never noticed it before… until now.’
People commented to call the llama ‘rude’, while some said we shouldn’t be bothered by a toy representation of a normal part of the body.
One person wondered whether the area was designed to store treats for a pooch.
We would love to say the llama is a statement on vulva positivity and body image, but we really do think that pink folded area is just the little llama’s tail. Sorry, all.
We approached Kmart to ask about the design, but they haven’t got back to us yet.
Teach Your Dog to Catch Using Popcorn. If your dog doesn’t know how to catch don’t start by throwing a toy at their face. Popcorn works great for training dogs to catch because it’s light & yummy which makes it enticing enough for your dog to try and catch it.
On the website the product description says the llama is ‘sure to be your furry pal’s favourite plaything.’
Kmart also sells a llama toy for children, which doesn’t include the genital-esque tail. Sad times.
If you fancy buying your dog an anatomically detailed stuffed llama, it’s available for $9 (around £7) online.
