Can anyone help me buy a stuffed yak dog toy? This one is out of stock at the places I've checked.

I like the Highland cow better, but am concerned about durability. Earlier this week, Pluto chewed through the head of a plush crocodile dog toy in about 45 minutes.

I like it. The tousled hair and beard makes Zak the Yak look like a very intellectual yak, in an academic sense. You can just picture this yak giving a lecture on Hegelian dialectics, its over-long fur flapping delightfully with each emphatic gesture. Plus the ad says it's suitable for ages 10 months and up, so I qualify.

Actually, I believe Qadgop's on record as saying it's a crucial part of his relationship.

The inflatable yak is irrelevant to sexuality, and will remain that way. Note that I never mentioned such an urge, nor am I seeking for an 'embraceable ewe'.

Dr. Seuss had a yak. Wikipedia says they are eleven feet long. So if you want a toddler size, get a young yak.

And hit the road, yak.

A male yak has the prefix “ka”. And an inflatable kayak is easy to find. The female is called a hiyak. But I don’t wanna hiyak this thread.

Why? Planning a long wok of the end of a short pier?

I am almost ashamed of myself for that one.

Great! Now I got the Animaniacs theme song as an ear worm:

We're An-i-man-i-acs
Dot is cute and Yakko yaks
Wakko packs away the snacks
While Bill Clinton plays the sax
We're An-i-man-i-acs

If we knew, we might be able to suggest some alternative plan that would achieve the same goal; or maybe not, but we don't know enough to say.

Hey, Qadcop -- will a Real Yak do?

Yak Headed To Butcher Shop Manages To Escape To Virginia Mountains
Meteor’s owners are still trying to lure it back using treats.


OVINGSTON, Va. (AP) — Authorities in Virginia say a yak on its way to the butcher’s shop escaped to the nearby mountains avoiding animal control officers and treats trying to lure it back into a trailer.

The News & Advance reports the yak named Meteor was on its last ride Tuesday from Buckingham, Virginia, to the butcher when it got out of its trailer.


The escape was called in as livestock on the loose, and Nelson County Animal Control officer Kevin Wright says he figured he was looking for a cow.

Wright says the yak crossed a busy highway and avoided officers trying to capture it by heading for the mountains.

The yak was last spotted Wednesday at an inn, where the owners tried unsuccessfully to lure it into a trailer using treats.

A real Yak? Sorry, thanks but no thanks. Inflatable or rubber could be considered. But no real ones.

The Abbot grows impatient.

Every physician knows the technique of insufflation. No dynamite necessary.

Only about 15 sec more than to properly inflate it.
