but my mom wouldn't let him have one, she thinks it's gross.
What is it with them?
...my mom is the same way. She always gives them rawhides, and I DON'T like it, so I bought them real bones one day (they were cooked...I figured she'd handle that better...and I intended to watch them the entire time, and I figured its better than rawhide). As soon as she saw them, she flipped and threw them away. (I'd been threatening her all week that I would bring home a huge cow femur for them...) She thinks it's disgusting...this is a nurse who works in people guts...and things...go figure! Do you guys have a good "chewy" alternative that ISN'T bone (or other "gross" animal parts?).
