"I'm Sure My Toy Is In Here Somewhere"


"Yup, Found It!"

"Throw It Again, Please"


  1. CUTE!! Is that Maggie or Bolsey? Tonight I gave Aspen his very first raw bone... he's only 14 mo and at his check up they said he had some build up... I guess when they clean their teeth the put them out?? So I decided to give him a raw bone he loved it!! What do I do with it when he's done with it? Do I need to put it in the fridge for later??

  2. Hi Erica,
    That is Maggie in the pictures :)

    When I give my dogs raw chewing bones, I always put them back in the fridge. I know some people don't, but I feel better keeping them cold. For cleaning teeth, you could also try a large antler chew. The bigs ones are usually elk antlers. They work very well to clean my dog's teeth, they do not smell and they last a long time. Some dogs don't care much for them, but I find if I buy big ones with lots of marrow, my dogs love them.

  3. Ok that's what I'm going to do as well. The bones I got I think were beef. They gave me the joints too and wow that's big!!

    Funny you should say that we use to live next to a huge elk farm but due to the chronic wasting disease they land and elk were all ruined. I wouldn't have a clue where to get elk antler chews but I'll keep my eyes open!! Looks like your dogs are having fun in all this winter.. mine too but to tell you the truth I'm ready for spring!!
