New Treats

Our boys are spoiled absolutely rotten. There's no use denying it. Their wardrobe is far better than mine, and they have so many treats and toys that it borders on ludicrous.
Despite all of the things they have at home, there is one treat the boys have always craved- beef bones. Our neighbor's golden retriever always has beef bones, and several times when Loki was just a tiny puppy, we;d go visit in their yard, and Loki would desperately try to drag off the bones which weighed more than he did. When we visit our mother-in-law, her dogs have the same giant beef bones, and both the boys try their darnedest to drag them all over the house.

For the longest time I've looked for beef bones in their size, but it's been a no go. Then, last weekend we went to a local high-end pet store called Fetch. We were poking around at all of the neat stuff, when, low and behold, in the freezer section, I saw them- small bison bones!!!! I was so excited! Unfortunately the only package of the small ones they had was reserved for another lady. But, the lovely people there said that they got a delivery every Friday. So, on Friday I went down on my lunch break and picked up two packages of the all organic bison bones.

When I got home, I gave them to the boys. To say they were a hit would be an understatement:

Now, we know we can't give these as treats often, but that just makes them more special, and more enjoyable. Plus, we hope the chewing will help with the last of their stubborn baby teeth. Here's to hoping!

That should hold them for a good long time, and Bison is supposed to be very good for us humans a well a dogs.

That is so funny. Our dogs get those at least once a month and they go bonkers. :)
