Peiti has no bones to chew or bury
January 22, 2017 6:42pm CST
As most dog lovers know at some point dogs love to bury bones.They will splend hours chewing them. But sadly here where I live cow slaughter is banned and so Preiti does not get any bones. Our previous dogs enjoyed that activity. I feel sad for Preiti. She still makes pits in the flower pots - may be imagining that activity. I wonder if I should get her a toy bone. Do you give bones to your pet dogs?

@atoz1to10 she has her food, ,when I adopted her from the shelter she never ever liked toys. She always liked Dingo bones, but as she got older i can't let her have them, because of her teeth now. So she doesn't have nothing but a warm, bed, blankets.

@allknowing Not much he has stopped chewing a lot of things like my shoes for example. I really need some new shoes as he ate the last ones. I am always looking for some chews that won´t upset him but so far no way he gets sick after he chews on them.
@jaboUK Cows are but not bulls. Have you not heard of what is going on in India where they have been fighting to let them have the bull sport which is cruel really? And they seem to have had their way. I have watched a few video clips. My heart goes out for those bulls.
@allknowing I am talking about years ago. We don't have a dog anymore. But we had to buy him a new one and try to not let him bury it. No, that type of bone they can't actually break. They look plastic but are much stronger. He was a big dog and never chewed off a chunk. The raw hide ones he would chew up and eat and apparently that is not good for them, so I had to stop giving him those.

Apparently where I am, people are taught that bones from the table are not good to give to dogs . . . that the bones could chip and break - and the dogs could choke on them. But growing up I remember giving our dogs our bones from dinner - they never had a problem with them, and enjoyed the heck out of 'em. Instead of burying them, my dogs just hid them somewhere in the yard. There are those animal hide things and such that can be bought from the pet stores though.
Preiti gets her special food but never what we eat. The only thing I give her from my plate is a starter so to say which is normally a piece of fish or meat which is thoroughly washed and then given. She waits for that patiently before she starts eating her food. We used to give beef bones for our earlier dogs which again were cooked but they are not available now.
