lamb chews? I haven't given them any. I think they had lamb trachaes at the farm supply, but I was too grossed out. I haven't really experimented with tracheas or pig snout or any of the odd and unusual items.

I've seen them but never fed them.
Speaking of odd treats. I was really grossed out when I found out what Bully Sticks are made of ......but the dogs love them and so I buy them anyways..They've got me wrapped around their paws

Are they made of lamb meat? Like dried chicken breast strips, but with lamb?

I've given my boys lamb ears before. They are much less greasy than pigs' ears, and they are white (no staining) and smaller.

I have only tried two of the Merrick products (Flossies & Texas Toothpicks) and have been pretty pleased with their products. I like that they don't have all the extra additives, like smoke flavor, etc.

Jane, I think you told me another time about the lamb ears being less greasy, but I had forgotten. That's good to know.

Sally, you'll have to tell us how the boys like them tonight!

Since Tess is allergic to almost everything else, I give my dogs OLD WEST ALL NATURAL BAA BAA Q'S LAMB LUNG TREATS. They both love them. Tess will dance on her hind legs for one and steals Cody's treat right out of his mouth. (And this is my picky, picky eater.)

Riley loves the lamb ears...and I know, it sorta grossed me out, too. They are great for the car cuz they don't smell up the inside.

Jean, Riley and Zeus!

I also tried the lamb lungs - they are kind of puffy-ish. But, Scout got the runs - I wonder if they are greasy?

The lamb ears are not greasy. But they aren't as appealing to my dogs as the pigs' ears. I guess they are less tasty? Kind of like how a rice cake compares to a potato chip?
