Honey® Pet Set Item# F9286 $22 (price decreased to $20 in December 2009 and the Pet Journal was no longer included;price increased back to $22 January, 2012) This friendly golden retriever puppy with soft, golden fur is an American Girl’s best friend! Honey® comes with a collar and a name tag. Includes a pet journal for girls.
Honey has arrived! He is hard, solid plastic inside like his Best Friends. He's covered with golden plush. His fur is so soft! He's bigger than his friends are. No magnet mouth.
He stands 5" tall and is 7 1/4" in length. He has a removable collar with his name on it. Also included is the Pet Journal which is a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" paperback book for you to write all about your new friend.
He was a gift so I didn't really pick him. He's cute enough, but looks like the love child of Snoopy and Woodstock, so I named him Woodstock He's been shuffled around as the pet of many of my dolls. Honey is honestly not my favorite of the pets, but I like him enough to keep him around! The quality is fine. Hard plastic body covered in fur, everything seems well attached. I wish he was bigger, he's super tiny for a Golden Retriever. I do not think he's worth the list price, you should only plunk down the money for him if you really, really like him! Any little stuffed doggie would do just as well as a pet for an AG doll.

I almost put off getting Cooper, thinking Honey would suffice. Then I went to see him/her in person and noted the dog appeared to be in a sitting position. I put Honey back and got my daughter and her best friend two of the final three Coopers remaining in McKenna's collection. The kids prefer the dogs to be in a standing pose so they can have the dogs in action in their stories and so the sitting lose just doesn't cut it as far as AG dogs are concerned. Especially not for active breeds. The Yorkies and Westies could get away with sitting but the girls I was shopping for want hunting, sporting and other working breeds to be frozen in a standing position. Your mileage may vary, but it is something I decided to mention because it was a factor I had to consider with this particular pet.
Oh yes, and I agree he is too small. He could pass for a puppy but not an adult. Not with the husky and Cooper being so much larger.
