Wow, they bring out the worst behavior in her.:no: I was looking for pizzle sticks at walmart and I came across pigs ears and bought those. No pizzles at walmart. I always buy Bailey a toy or treat when I go to the store.

I came home gave her one, she went to town on it. I went over to pet her and she growled at me. Naughty puppy! I took it away and gave it to her later. Later one of the cats walked by her and she actually got up and was going to attack him. Ugh, he just warmed up to her and liked her too.

So, bye bye pigs ears. I'm going to give them to Gus across the street. I bet he could use a yummy treat.

They are not good for dogs anyways - serious choking hazard. Booda bones rock Max's world as does this super hard bone with red stuff inside of it we got from Dogs.com store in Hazleton. Nothing else really lasts too long with him.

Wow- she must really have felt like she struck gold with the pig's ear. I wonder what made her prize it so much more than other things??

I dont give my dogs those pigs ears after I had to take it out of one of my dogs throats..they are dangerous, in my opinion.

I never knew they were dangerous. I will throw them in the garbage instead of passing them on.

They are greasy and they smell like bone marrow. Bailey goes nuts for the bone marrow inside the yummy bones. Next time I will buy her a new toy instead. ;)

Here is the kind of bone that I bought Max that he LOVES. It's great because he's chewed on it for months and it has barely even been scratched, plus, chewing this never gets old!! He almost has all the red stuff out but for fun, I put other treats in the hollow part of this bone. It's the best!! Next time I go to the store, I'm going to buy like, 3 more or something.

I saw these or something simular to this at the store. I was going to pick them up, but I worried about the stuff in the middle coming out and staining the carpet. Bailey would like all three of those flavors.

Sounds like Mojo with bully sticks. (Or a Kong with peanut butter...)

It was BAD for a long time. No more bully sticks here!

LOL...also both of Chance's favorite treats! He LOVES the bully sticks and won't let me take it away from him when it gets too small...he finished it off tonight and I worry about whether they are a choking hazard especially if he won't give it up when I try to get it from him. The trainer recommended marrow bones from the butcher department at the supermarket...anyone know if these would be a safe alternative for our pups??

Raw marrow bones I have found are very safe but you should always supervise. Asia spends a long time getting all the marrow out and the bones we buy never splinter.
