While I’m in the hospital, I’m recycling a few gently used posts. Enjoy.
The Bandit’s Bones have proven to be a huge hit with Tulsa dogs! I had one Bandit’s Bones left, so headed to a friend’s house last night to see what her dog, Lucy, thought of this marvelous center bone.
Lucy didn’t have much to say. Except to growl when I got my hand too close to her face. She let me scratch her back and rear end while chewing, but didn’t want me to take her bone.
At some point my friend’s teen son took the Bandit’s Bones and made Miss Lucy do tricks.
But the instant she got the bone back, Lucy disappeared. The family got out her favorite bag of treats in an attempt to lure Lucy away from the bone, but she never looked up from digging out the beef center of the bone.
Then my friend said the magic phrase, “Going bye bye?” Meaning, let’s go to for a ride! Lucy never even blinked, just kept chewing that bone.
Thank you, April, for graciously allowing me to intrude at the last minute with a Bandit’s Bones. April sent me a note a couple of hours later saying that Lucy was still gnawing on the Bandit’s Bones.
Lucy Belle’s Story
Lucy’s story? Get this … Lucy is a year old. Her mother is an Australian shepherd. April adopted Lucy when she was just six weeks old, at a Pet Smart Saturday adoption. Lucy, her mother and her siblings were found at the scene of a murder/suicide nearly a year ago. How freaky is that?
Lucy, I’m glad you’re alive and making a family happy. 🙂
Bella the Australian Shepherd
I visited with another dog yesterday. My favorite dog, Bella. I can’t visit Bella’s family without taking photos of this lovely creature.
Jones Natural Chews is giving one lucky dog a Bandit’s Bone of their very own! To enter, click this sentence and be taken to a new window, scroll down to Rafflecopter and click to follow directions! Your dog will thank you.
Right quick, before we go – when giving your dog a bone, always know your dog’s chewing style. If your dog is an aggressive chewer, go with a more durable bone, beef. And always supervise your dog chewing. Preferably photographing while they chew. Dogs love that. Then blog about it. Take the bone away when it’s small enough to fit entirely in the dog’s mouth. Take away any bone splinters that may happen.
Spreading the good chews …
