I've heard such great things about antler chews on here that I bought one for Rookie. (Boy are they expensive!) Rookie's a pretty tough chewer so I liked the idea of a chew that would last a long time. Well, it's been two days and there's only half an antler left! He has only chewed it when I am in the room, so it's not like he has broken a big piece off. Are some antlers harder than others? Did I get a "soft" one?
