I have a reputation among our friends for liking “wierd beer,” meaning I like trying different ones, although I do have my favorites. I’m adventurous and enjoy trying new things. I also can rock a margarita like nobody’s business, though don’t tend to during colder months, but that might just be beside the point.
As far as trying different things are concerned, I also like to provide Ray with a variety in his life as well. Since he isn’t a beer drinker, his variety comes from toys – mostly chew toys. “Dogs like body parts,” said Heather, one of our pet-wellness Gurus. So far, Ray has enjoyed antlers, bully sticks (cow and bison), hearts (pig, duck and sheep), hooves, tail, trachea, pig ears, tripe, and snout (moozles). These all have various amounts of lastability and I am always looking for healthy safe chew toys to keep him occupied for certain lenghths of time.
Our latest find is not acutally a body part-it’s a ChurpiChew which is made of Yak milk, salt and lime juice and is kind of a very hard cheese that softens as the dog chews it and supposedly lasts a long time. One of our Puppy class teachers recommended it last night while I was stocking up on other treats.
I gave it to him this morning and it seemed to hold it’s shape for the hour our so he worked at it, so I’m eager to see how long this will actually hold up to Mr. Pit Bull Mouth. See? He is like Mama in liking a little salt, a little lime, only he prefers Yak milk to tequila.
On an unrelated note, Dahey found his forever home yesterday! This is a picture of the puppy fam from way back when.
