‘Chewish’ Dog Toys (What’s Next?)
Now, in the latest development around canine Yiddishkeit, a Brooklyn company has unveiled a Semitic series of plush toys for pets, all inspired by Yiddish words.
So pets don’t feel left out at Sunday brunches, Copa Judaica also offers plush-toy versions of weekend-morning staples. The “buffet” for pets includes stuffed beige bagels with a white schmear of cream cheese, a stuffed fish named Lox, and “kosher” stuffed bones.
For dogs who still can’t get enough of Hebraica, the site also offers canine dreidel hats — they fit with an elastic under the snout — a “kosher” dog bowl, and a giant stuffed fountain pen called “bark mitzvah.” And for more solemn occasions, the web site JakesDogHouse offers a simple but elegant Pet Yarmulke for Your Dog and Jewish Holidays, “great for Bar Mitzvahs, Seders, Hanukkah Celebrations or just for some Friday Night Fun!”
