I normally do not give our dogs real bones. I am so afraid they will splinter and pierce their innards. But, I have been doing some reading lately and real bones are much more preferred by the professionals. Joe loves to get the rawhide bones which are great for chewing, but Miss Pattykins tends to want to swallow them, and that is not a good item. So he bought some of those real bones wrapped up at the store.
Yo Mama.......yum yum
Tongue licking good
Meanwhile silly Sophie didn't know what to do with her tasty treat.
She has a habit of waiting until Patty finishes her treat and then she can tease Patty with hers.
But Patty could care less. She was chowing down on her bone.
Going to town with it
Look at those eyes......I believe she thought she had died and gone to Heaven
Daddy, you did such a good job!
Oops, was I chewing with my mouth open Mama?
"Heaven, I'm in Heaven"
Yeppers, I'm a happy camper
I am happy to report she did very well with her bone. I really don't know if Soph ever ate hers. I was too busy laughing and taking pictures of Patty I forgot to look.
By the way, we have decided to neuter Patty. I really wanted to breed her when she turned 2, but Joe and I have decided not to breed. The only way I agreed to it was for Joe to agree to buy another puppy in 2 yrs. I don't want Patty going through what Sophie did when Annie died. Plus we both want a fawn with a black mask which would probably not happen with Patty's pups. There is mostly brindle in her family tree so the chances of having the color we want would be pretty rare. Also, I think it makes dogs healthier to have them fixed. Maybe PetSmart would take back the bag of diapers I have already purchased!
