DOG S TOY Filed April 1, 1948 Patented Sept. 16, 1952.

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE $10,851 Doors TOY Win Jones, Grand Rapids, Mich. Application April 51,1948, Serial No. 18,419 g 1 Claim. (Cl. 272-8) The present invention relates to toys for dogs and more particularly to dogs toys which are molded of rubber or other resilient material.

The primary objects of the invention are to provide a dogs toy which, when held in the mouth of a dog or puppy, will produce a comical effect as though the animal were smokin a pipe; to provide such a toy which is molded of rubber or the like, and which is so formed that either end thereof will fit comfortably in a dog's mouth while the other end projects from his mouth in simulation of a smokers pipe; to provide such a toy which, when one end thereof is grasped in the dogs mouth with the other end projecting exteriorly thereof, the bowl-like extension on the exterior portion of the toy will necessarily be positioned with the axis thereof vertical in simulation of a smokers pipe; and in general to provide such a' dogs toy which is utilitarian for a dog and amusing for spectators.

An illustrative embodiment of the invention is shown in the accompanying drawing, wherein:

Figure 1 is a picture of a dog in prone position with one end of the toy of the present invention grasped in its mouth (as indicated in dotted lines) and with the other end of the toy projecting from the dogs mouth;

Figure 2 is a perspective view of the and Fig. 3 is an end elevational view thereof. Referring now in detail to these drawings the dog's toy there shown is preferably molded of rubber or other resilient material and may conventionally be flavored of marshmallow or other toy per se;

flavoring to entice the dog to its use. The mastication of such toys is generally conceded to be beneficial to the teeth of dogs.

Each end of the toy generally simulates. a smokers pipe so that when one end of the toy is clamped between a dog's upper and lower teeth the other end thereof projects from the animals mouth in simulation of a smokers pipe. The toy comprises an elongated, relatively slender, substantially cylindrical, medial stem portion I, and relatively short, relatively wide, substantially cylindrical opposite end portions 2, 3 each molded with a slight concavity 4 in its outer end so as to resemble the bowl of a smokers pipe. The cylindrical end portions or bowls 2, 3 of the toy extend laterally from the opposite ends of the stem I and have their axes lying in spaced trans- 7 either end of the toy in its mouth, said end will be comfortable for the animal only when its axis is disposed substantially horizontally, i. e., from side to side in the dogs mouth. The. other end of the toy, which protrudes from the animals mouth, will therefore usually be positioned vertically thus creating a comical effect as though the dog were smoking a pipe with the bowl opening upwardly or, occasionally, downwardly.

It will thus be seen that the toy provided by this invention is both entertaining and beneficial for a dog and at the same time comical and amusing for spectators-and while but one specific embodiment of the invention has been herein shown and described, it will be understood that details of the form shown are subject to modification without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention as the same is defined by the following claim.

I claim: Y

A dogs toy comprising a resilient element molded to form a medial stem portion in simulation of a smokers pipe stem and oposite end portions each in simulation of a smokers pipe bowl, said end portions extending radially from the opposite ends of said stem portion at angles approximately ninety degrees apart, and said end portions each being receivable in the mouth or the dog.

WIN JONES.
