We bought this game at Growing Tree Toys years ago, when my daughter was in kindergarten. She liked it so much, we bought another for her to give her class as a holiday gift that year. Three years later my kids still pull this game off the shelf first. It's a great game in terms of graphics, time investment, storage, etc. We usually play a single round (until we have the first winner) but sometimes the winner will play another dog until everyone has had a "win." There's something about this game and its structure that keeps them from dividing into "winners" and "losers" but it maintains its competitiveness. This is an excellent game for kids learning how to win and lose and for all the play its gotten, it has held up so well, you'd think it was brand new.
