We welcome more pictures

My guys won't touch the hooves, pig ears, or antlers. They love the Merrick corporal knee caps! I buy them by the box. They also love the Merrick glossies, but those have gotten too expensive!

I make marrow bones for Lily. Choose ones that are thick so they don't splinter. I bake them at 200 for 1 hour, let them cool then remove the marrow. Store them in the freezer. Lily will chew on them for an hour. She gets one if we go out for dinner as a special treat for being left behind. She will pull one out of her toy box every once in a while. She also LOVES bully sticks. I get them at the holistic dog store in my town.

Be careful of anything that might splinter. Mine loved bully sticks, pig ears and now because I haven't bought them anything new for awhile finally like the nila bones they had when they were little . It took them two years so don't throw any thing away! Maddie was never very interested in the bones in tell her sister came.

Linda: wow those knee caps look great. He'd probably LOVE those but I'd want to try one to see how it goes before i commit to a large box.. Kind of pricey! I'll look into that.

NvonS: LOVE THIS IDEA.. a good thick bone that won't splinter.. I think he'd really get into. I will try this and see how it goes. Do you get these at a butcher or just at the grocery store?

Suzi: he won't be getting anything like bully sticks and pig ears without supervision, no worries there. Man i HOPE he starts to like the Nyla bones because I have about 6 of them which he refuses to touch! I'm going to hold on to them in the hopes he changes his mind.. Good advice..

Always looking for something new so I ordered the moose taster slice but only one to see if either dog liked it. The slice was a hit with both so just placed another order. They're $5 each but include S/H. I think they'd make great stocking stuffers!

Kodi agrees. He has little use for deer antlers, but LOVES his moose antlers... especially the squarish blades.

Quincy really likes the bully sticks, but man they give him stinky breath (and whiskers). He's not a big fan of the deer antler, but will chew it every once in a while. I might have to investigate some other options. The most recent Himalayan chews that I got him seem to be wider than the others and he can't chew them as well. I got the same size as before, but they're thicker.

bestbullysticks.com - there you can find low odor bully sticks, makes such a difference and Marlowe loves it *almost* as much as the stinky bully sticks.
