Which of the following are real Chanukkah pet toys?


A. Dog Kippah and Tallis (sold separately) and Kiss Me, I’m Chewish! T-shirt.

B. Schnoz the Anteater Chew Toy and Mohel Scissors Chew Toy.

C. Menorah Dog Hat and Jewish Star Pet Bow Tie.

D. Llamalka in a Yarmulke Dog Chew Toy and Schmaltz the Chicken Chew Toy.

E. Mechitza Dog Gate and Shtreimel Frisbee.
