I'm not super thrilled with S[rocket either. I think I would give him a B or B-.
I was also super disappointed that the leash is not removable. The interesting thing is that if you look really closely at the picture of Nicki's whole world collection in the catalog it looks like the leash is attached with velcro. And even if you look at the close up picture of Sprocket online you can see a rectangular stitch box at the end of the leash where it looks like it is removable from the collar. I wonder why they made the prototypes this way and then got rid of it. I think it decreases the play value to always have a leash on the dog...Especially for the $24 price tag.
